It's been several months since I blogged on SP. I've gotten back to tracking my food and fitness again, and starting to see positive changes. Other things are changing, too. After 5 years out of the regular work force, I am searching for a job.
For a long while, I was my mother's FT caregiver. She passed away in March 2013. I've also done a few freelance art assignments, sold some goods online, and did some odd jobs to earn money. But for the most part, we are living solely on my husband's income.
We're doing OK, but if we want to move forward, it is necessary for me to work. That way we can start saving money for our goals, including buying a newer truck and camper trailer. We're also saving money for our HUGE 5-month backpacking trip on the AT in 2015.
I will admit it. I feel a little scared. It's been a long time since I've had a job, and I feel like a fish out of water. It will be an adjustment, but I know I can do it. But the last week I've been dragging my feet to update my resume. I know I have to get it done TODAY!
The job itself will be temporary. We plan on leaving on our backpacking trip in April. But I know it will be good to do something to contribute to our family. I'm praying I find a job with good people and not a lot of drama!
OK....off to work on my resume!
