Here's my situation: As it stands ,I'm probably getting laid off next Friday(10th). Like Bob M. says after 14 years the "Man" has finally caught up to me. I will be able to collect unemployment for a while and I also coach football (Jr High) so I will have a little income. My question to you all is I can go back to school and through a state funded program and won't have to pay anything. I should be able to come out of this in two years with 2 associate degrees. Horticulture/Landscaping and Turf grass management. Have not worked in this field before but have worked construction in the past and really enjoyed it. Classes start on 27th so I really need to decide fast. I' m 95% sure I know what I'm going to do. Another twist to the story is my wife is also going to school for nursing(full time) and will graduate about the same time I do. We have 3 kids and have a plan to survive the next 2 years finacially. What would you do?
