Back to School?

Is there any way to get everything done in a day that needs done? I probably shouldn't be complaining or even asking because I'm home all day; I should be able to get things done. Then I keep thinking about how the kids are all but grown up and will be out on their own soon. Then what? My husband seems to think I should go back to work, but I have no idea what I would want to do. It's not like I have some great career I want to go back to. I suppose I could go back to school like some of my friends are doing, but first I think I need to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. And both going to work and going back to school mean time away from home, and I keep wondering who's going to do my work. You know all the stuff that isn't getting done now? Even less will be getting done then. I know other people do it. Somehow.

One solution might be to look into Online master degrees from Gonzaga University. Of course, I'd have to get a regular degree first, and I'd still have to decide what I want to be when I grow up, but the idea of getting an online degree really appeals to me. It sounds like it's something that could fit into an already busy schedule. What I'm reading is that many of the top ranked programs are reluctant to go online because they feel that it diminishes the quality of the education. Gonzaga feels the opposite and believes that offering online programs gives busy professionals the opportunity to further their educations where they otherwise might not have been able to. The quality of the education must be pretty good, too because Gonzaga has been ranked one of the nation's best universities by The Princeton Review and Forbes Magazine.

Now, what should I be when I grow up? No sense in going back to school until I figure that out.
