Well husband started job yesterday and looks like we will have maternity coverage come July or August. So that's good. But all of this change and now putting on the breaks with baby trying has made me wanna do something else. I donno what though. I feel like talking to a lot of ppl and asking them what they do is the best. I don't want something too terribly long term. So I am open to options. I am just so ready to move on from the position I am in right now. It's been over 3 years and it just feels like the book business is dieing. Actually my boss has told me that lol I wish I had something else to focus on right now. Not training for any races. Honestly I don't wanna be training for anything. It's been nice taking off from that. But I need to be focusing on something other than what I am focused on. I feel stuck in the mud. Maybe I just need to take a day off work and wander around and ask if ppl are hiring. Sometimes just being in the right place at the right time if what has to happen.

    July or August is not long at all! Keep tracking so when the time comes you'll increase your chances!

I hear ya about finding something new to try...I hate that I do this but I think about the past 3+ years of trying for baby, miscarriages, etc...what could I have done new? Take up running again, start a new hobby, get my house in order and make it as beautiful as I want? So much could have gotten done.

I'd love to take on the challenge with you! Even though I'm still TTC, I need to focus on other things! I think I'm going to get better about DIY projects for the house. I complain to my husband that it isn't the way I want it...maybe it's time for me to get crafty! Maybe take the time to prepare a baby room? It'll happen soon enough! Maybe we both should! Visualization in action, lol?

    Want to train for a sprint tri with me??? I'm doing Evergreen in July. You have plenty of time. The sprint is a 500-yard swim, 26-mile bike, and 5K run. I'd love to do it with you. :)

    When are you happiest? Is there any job that includes that activity?

Then see if you can pursue that.

(And I miss your photos - you really have a wonderful eye. If that is your happy place, follow that.)

    I think it's sad about the book business. Borders was my favorite store and I still miss it. I don't want to read online. There is nothing like having a book in your hand.

I hope you can find something to do that is a good fit for you.

    Do they have any career counseling where you are? If not ask at a local college or high school. They may be able to help you.
