Back To School?

I have been thinking a lot lately about my future. I am extremely happy in my marriage, and love my family, but I have been a little frustrated lately that we are, financially, no better off than we were ten years ago. I know if I went back to work things would change, but not very much. I mean, I do not have the education to get a well paying job, and I am not going to give up time with my family for minimum wage.

I have been looking into maybe taking some classes online. I know there is no way I could physically go to school, not with Juniors schedule and the kids. But going online seems like the way to go. Now the only problem is deciding what kind of classes to take. Well, maybe it would make more sense to decide what I want to do when I'm done with school first, then find out which classes I need to take. There are so many options, I am having a hard time deciding. I could do real time court reporting, nursing, or even business management. I probably need to pick whatever pays the most money, and a career that can withstand this economy. I know my mom went back to school around my age and is now a nurse. I just can not stand needled, and I think that is a requirement in the nursing field. I guess I need to keep thinking.
