The Shabby Princess: Are you nervous at all about going back to school to get your PhD? I'd be scared to death! I have a really hard time managing family, friends, life and being a wife--how do you do it all?
I am terrified! I have no idea if I even remember how to be a student. But we'll find out soon. I think the part that makes it better is knowing that I can't go back to my old job. I can't work 100-120 hours every week and so I need to find something else I love to do. I really want to be a professor and think I'll be great at it - so school is a must! As to how I do it all - I don't! I do what I have to do to get by. This week I am hosting a big Christmas party and so I've been cleaning and making cookies - which means we ate out last night. I am a very organized person and so my house always looks really clean - unless you turn on bright lights and then the dust bunnies show themselves. When I was working, I did nothing. We had a cleaning service. Our dry cleaning got dropped off and picked up. People did my laundry for me. (eeewww. someone washed my unmentionables for me!) I made dinner sometimes. We ate out or got take out a lot. When I did cook, it was because we had hired a PA to deliver groceries or Casey got off work in time to go. Life was insane. Now I am much more relaxed - and much more domesticated! I probably won't be making pies from scratch after school starts, and that's okay. You just need to do as much as works for you. And if that is using premade dough or even putting store bought cookies on a pretty plate - then that's okay!
If you have a burning question about me or my life - don't forget to submit it!
