Happy Father’s Day to all the dads!
It was another nice, low key week for me. Tomorrow is my first official day of college (again). When I think about it, it is all a bit overwhelming. Am I crazy to be changing careers at 41? Is this a terrible idea? I know my reasons are valid, but it doesn’t stop the doubt from creeping in for sure. Also, taking 4-5 classes per quarter while teaching full time is going to be a big challenge for sure. That part worries me the least though. It’s the doubts about whether or not this is a good idea (to change careers at 41) that worry me most.
I had the usual summer appointments-yearly doctor visits, contact pick up, hair cut. Other than that, it was just me and the dogs hanging out. Friday night there was a terrible storm. Calleigh isn’t a fan of thunder, and this was a really intense storm. The power went out at 9:30 and even Yoda was a little freaked by this point. Thankfully the power wasn’t out for more than 4 hours or so. Saturday saw the yard flooded so Calleigh refuses to go out back to potty. She just stands on the deck and whines at me. To be fair, even Yoda was not thrilled about the state of the back yard and didn’t race outside like normal. He stuck as close to the deck as possible.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
Love Scenes and Falling For the Villain sound amazing!
My hats off to you. You go chase your happy! I like to believe it is never too late to find what you are looking for. Good luck tomorrow!
I think it’s great you figured out a new plan for yourself and I wish you well. Lulu hates going out in the rain also. She has a rain coat which makes her more amenable. It is easier to get her to come back inside though.

I don’t think you are foolish to change career now just brave!
I think it’s better to try than to have regrets over what you didn’t do. Good luck, Samantha! 🙂
Good luck with your new career!
41 is the perfect time to do a career change. You are more focused and not out partying every weekend. You now have life expereince to go with your classes and it makes it somuch easier. I did it to at 42. Congrats!!
That’s true! Thanks!!
Ooh, I think the Avery Flynn book, Mama’s Boy, was postponed to August now. But I’m excited for that whole series! And I don’t think you’re ever too old to start a new career if you’re not happy with where you are. So good luck with your college! I’m starting over at a new school as a librarian this coming fall. While my last school wasn’t bad, and I’m a bit nervous about changing, there were things about the new school that I’m really excited about. Have a great week!
One of my high school classmates went back to get her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in her late 30s. She’s so happy and absolutely loves what she does now! If you’ve found something you’re interested in or passionate about, go for it!
Enjoy your week!
I’m 37 and also embarking on a new career path. I feel like it’s never too late to find what you love (or in my case, find something that pays well because what you love doesn’t). I hope classes are off to a great start!
