As promised, I have resurrected this blog. Here I will post updates on my incredibly boring life and some other stuff. If you still want to read about my gay boyfriend Orlando you can do so at the old spot, www.wandarizzuto.com.
So, to update. I took a blogging break sometime in October to get my shit together and do NaNoWriMo. Well, my shit is still in a million pieces and I failed at NaNoWriMo, but really, what did you expect? Actually, things were going really well with my sess novel until I got sick somewhere in week 3, then I had to start working again so that was pretty much the end of that. At least it wasn’t as bad as last year when I broke my ass. Remember that?
Oh, and yes, you read correctly. I am once again gainfully employed. I know, I talked a lot of cocky about being a stay at home mom and all that, but whatever. The local college (which will forever be referred to here as The College) made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Mr. Rizzuto wants to put a sunroom on the house, so I guess I’ll work until we have the money for that.
Or maybe not. You see, on about my second day working at The College, I came to a rather startling realization. Even though I’ve worked in financial aid for about 9 years, I’ve never worked at a school where I’d actually think about sending my kids until now. So even though I knew how expensive college was, the reality of the situation hit me for the first time. First, if I want to send both of my kids to a private college, and if college costs don’t increase at all over the next several years, it’ll cost me about $250,000. Second, I don’t have $250,000. All is not lost though, if I keep working there until the kids finish they can go to The College for free. Well, they won’t have to pay tuition, I’m on my own for room and board, books, etc. The only problem is both of the kids won’t be done with college for another 22 years. Sigh.
In other news, tomorrow is my 39th birthday. You know what that means, don’t you? It means I have exactly 366 days left in my 30’s. Only 366 more days until I reach middle age. That is so depressing.
Anyway, I have nothing else for right now. Welcome back to my corner of the internets, be seeing ya.
