Party in Your PJs 169

Welcome to Party in Your PJs for this week!  How has your summer been?  My little granddaughter, Kate, already started school this week!  Seems early but from posts on social media it seems she wasn't the only one.  Ali Rose will begin her Senior year of high school in 3 weeks so she still has time to enjoy the summer--working.  She has a cool job as a dental assistant!  Learning skills that she can use in the future if she wants.

Any adults out there going back to school or considering it?  I earned my AAS-RN, then my RN to BSN, and now working on my Master's Degree (the last 2 degrees are web-based).  Anyway, here are a few tips for those if you considering going back to college.


Now, time to party!
