Tonight was the first night of a seven week intensive summer course on research and program evaluation. Sounds like fun, huh? I would be lying if I said I couldn’t stand it, that I hated research, etc… I actually really enjoy the technical, sciencey (I know that’s not a real word) side of counseling. I love reading research and the different things that people are looking at.
The problem comes in because I am on class for 5 hours! I get home at 9pm after the kids are in bed and that is really hard for me 😦 I’ve spent multiple nights a week ever since Aiden was born with Charlie being gone at work really late. That has lead me to be really sensitive about being gone at night. Now that Charlie is at a point where he’s only gone two nights a week, I’m gone one or two nights a week for school, Oy…. I just hope that the kids see that the sacrifice is worth it in the end!
