Stuff going on

It is hard to believe that I graduated two weeks ago.... I have been filling out a job application to teach at a community college.. while I earn my masters degree.

The transition I am going through is felt by many of my peers - I go back and forth between being confident and feeling anxiety about moving forward. I am excited and scared at the same time!!

I applied for a job that entails doing trainings at local businesses and at the college for students and different businesses. While I have 13 years experience of managing training seminars, doing orientations and recruiting - there is a part of me that is overwelmed with having this degree and the expectations of the knowledge that I feel I should have ready and available - johnny on the spot and I feel I dont. I have a good education and have extensive information and know how. What gives me pause.... I can hear the naysayers who told me I cant.. I am not smart enough...ect... I have worked hard to have and maintain my emotional well being.
(my degree is in psychology... emoticon )

At any rate my favorite aunt on my husband's side passed away this week, so my husband is up north again this weekend to attend her funeral - I have been remembering her today ...

My eldest daughter is picking me up tomorrow for mom's day and taking me to lunch with her family and my youngest daughter's family... so excited! I get to see my daughters and my grandbabes!
It will be the first mother's day in a long long time that I will not spend with my mom, but I will make it a point to go see mom one day this week ...

I have been staying busy spring cleaning my house - cupboards, closets, clothes, and much more! Yard work and such..
I am also crocheting a project I started last fall.
I am reading a book a week.
Don is still recovering from surgery and heart issues.
I am creating my syllabus and presentations if I get the job to teach.
I am taking care of my kidney health - this was a bad week for my kidneys - not feeling well, took small walks for exercise, ate a kidney friendly diet and pushed my water and limited my tea intake.

Happy Mom's day to you and thank you for stopping my page.

God Bless you!
