Burned out!

OK it has been a few days since I have blogged. Keep in mind it is not because I HAVE NOT NEEDED TO, I just have not had the time. Having 4 kids is like living in a full time carnival MOST of the time. Now let me start by saying, I love them all, they are great, perfectly ANGELIC most of the time and keep me busy ALL of the time. Let me just say {as the Angles sing}"HALLELUJAH" FOOT BALL SEASON IS OVA!! This means football cheer season is OVA!! This is the true need for rejoicing. If any of you have been at our games and seen our cheerleaders or my less that happy reaction to attitudes of CHILDREN, you know my cause for celebration. I am burned out with the whole ordeal!! I know Tay LOVES to cheer, however, I would not be a bit upset if she never did it again. Girls are more petty and mean that I remember them being when we...well I was young. The fact that parents can sit and watch their children be disrespectful and rude to ADULTS and either laugh at or provoke the behavior.........IS BEYOND ME!! Ok, Let me just say that this is a situation I have to pray about before, during and after EVERY stinking game. Thank God football is over and God help us for basketball season.
Now with that being said. I really need guidance and prayer for my decision that has to be made with my college and career path choice. I have 1 week to register for classes that will get me to my end result. Here is the deal, I know that I have mentioned it in an earlier post but here goes, I have 2 classes left to take me to clinical's and degree as RN, a few semesters for Special ed teacher. Special needs children is my desire and passion. If I finish for RN I can take 2 extra classes and also graduate with an Associates in Occ. Therapy as well. Autism and Down Syndrome children is where my herat is. If there are any teachers or RN's out there, and I know there is, HELP! Which do you think the better path is to get me where I want to go.
i need prayers and advice. Thank you in advance for both. LOL. Have a great day!

I want to tell you that God gives each of us a passion for something, the purpose in which he created us and placed us here at this time. Follow that passion. You will not have the peace of God unless you do. Not quite the answer you were looking for I am sure....

Amen on the kids being rude to adults thing! I don't think it was that bad when I was a teen,...plus I knew my dad would beat my tail!! As for the career choice, I agree with Deb, follow your heart! Life is far to short to do something you don't love! That may not help much, but this might: I saw on the news tonight where the Alabama Board of Education has no money for payroll. .....you know, in case you were hoping to get paid or something...lol!

That is funny Deedra. It is so sad not only that teachers are paid so little and ....lets say for example.......MOVIE STARS nad MUSIC stars and SPORTS stars get paid MILLIONS upon MILLIONS for WHAT???? I could fuss about this all day. and in this small box...don't even get me started on BRATTY kids!
Thanks so much for the advise. I do love special needs children and ultimatly that is where my heart is and where i want to work. I am just afraid I will get into a school where they only "special" kids are the ones i get are the kind mentioned above,"bratty",and that Is a big negative for me. I do know where my heart is and almost my mind. Keep the help comming....and prayers too. lol

What a huge decision! I have been very blessed in my jobs as a nurse. I get frustrated often, but I love being a nurse! Jason loves being a teacher too. So, I think whatever your decision is, you will be making a good one. Not much help I know, sorry! I will say that teachers have a better schedule and with four kids that might me a deal breaker for you. I totally agree about the pay thing for teachers!
