House to myself, thoughts about a new career?
Sunday, February 03, 2013
Here it is, a Sunday again. My husband likes to go out and play with the guys on Sundays and lately he's been taking the kids with. For some reason he left a little earlier than usual today.
I already got our taxes filed this morning, I had been planning on waiting until they left, but felt like doing them this morning instead. Now the wait begins to see when they'll direct deposit my refunds.
The only reason we get a refund is because of our little deductions. Eventually they'll grow up and I won't be able to claim them on my taxes anymore, so I think it's time to start looking for a job. I'd love to be able to help other people lose weight too, but I fear the best way for me to do that with no education is to work for one of those "weight loss clinics" and since I have little faith in them, I'll have to look into some schooling. It's one of those catch 22's, I don't have the money to go to school, but need school to make money. I would think I'd get better grants in the situation I'm in now, but am not sure if I could get good clients when I'm 40 (about the time I'd be graduating if I go more than full time). There aren't any schools near me that finish off the nutrition part of the education I need and, with kids, I can't really go all the way downtown for it. If only there was a reputable certification course to jump start my career in my late 30's (I'll be 37 next month!). Perhaps I can look into the fitness certification first, then move onto nutrition? I think it's time to interview places that houses that type of job to see what I need to do.
So, I got off track, I am home alone, on a day where there's no really good tv programming. I sat around all day yesterday working on painting a game board for my husband, which still has a lot of work to be done. I will not start on it until I get my butt in gear to do a little workout, since I'm frustrated that I did so little movement yesterday. Time to plug in one of my video games and work on some rhythmic boxing and yoga. I won't look silly doing it when no one's home to watch.
