I've been struggling for a few months now. I thought it would fit in with the dc's and work, but I have so little free time I don't think it's doing me any good plodding through it.
My latest module has been 6 months long and the house and my sanity has gone to rack and ruin . 5yo DD doesn't sleep until around 10pm (she often mucks about so I have to deal with that) and as a result I don't get time to study until late in the evening. I only get a couple of hours on the 2 days I don't work and I'm on my own with the dc's (7 & 5)all weekend.
I find the studying interesting, I wouldn't find it hard if I didn't have so much on plate but it's like a millstone around my neck. I just found out that the shorter accounting module I really wanted to do can't be included on this course so I would need to start my next module in Oct finishing next spring / summer. And I'm 4 weeks behind on my current module because I haven't had a break since the schools broke up, I've got 2 days to scrape it together when the term starts.
God, I sound miserable . It feels like my last chance for studying is about to go but I don't think I can continue because of the effect it has on me and the dc's time together. And studying in the dark after a days work and putting the dc's to bed is too much <<sigh>>.
This is a bit like when to give up bf. I was happier when I chucked that in .
