Talk about changing things up in your life...
On August 31, 2012, I took my last class for my degree in Business Information Systems. It was a long haul, and it feels great to have completed all the classes. If I can get in the testing I need to gain a few more elective credits, I'll be able to graduate in December. I'm SO EXCITED about this!
Towards the end of September, I left employment with the State of Indiana. My job was incredibly stressful, impossible to accomplish due to lack of staffing, and wasn't a very good fit for me due to the politics involved. As such, I decided it would be best to resign due to the impact the stress was having on my family and my health. I really didn't like the job as a board director at all. While I enjoyed what I considered the accomplishment of being promoted twice within the agency, I was much happier in my previous job as an assistant board director.
So, now it's on to bigger and better things...I hope. I'll be praying that the Lord will guide my wonderful husband and me in what to do and where to go next. I'll be spending the immediate future working with ~indygirl on SparkPeople member conferences, completing the required testing to complete my degree requirements, and looking for a new job. I'm hoping to put to use my newly acquired education in Business Information Systems!
Between now and October 27th I need to get some medical issues resolved. On August 2nd, I had a hernia repair surgery. The hernia repair was successful, but the incision hasn't yet healed. It seems to be taking forever! I had some testing done this week due to some abdominal pain and they determined that I have "Sludge" and some gall stones in my gall bladder. I'll have more testing on that, and likely surgery to follow.
Thanks to all who have taken the time to read my lengthy blog. I'm so happy to be part of the SparkPeople family. Thanks to you all! I'll be praying for all of us as we move towards a healthier lifestyle.
Take care, All!
