Default Re: What's something new going on in your life?

I'm working part-time in a garden center, doing personal training & corrective exercise part-time, and working through my course to be certified in pregnancy & post-partum corrective exercise (PCES). I'm also working on getting certified to teach barre classes. After that I want to move into somatics.

Lots of hiking and gardening this summer.

Your work sounds so interesting! My daughter who just graduated is looking into being a personal trainer.

Default Re: What's something new going on in your life?

So many exciting things happening. Yay!

I am also more of a sweary mom than ever. I curb it as much as possible but I am not going to sweat it too much. God knows who and how I am *shrug*

I am currently winding down my career as a massage therapist. Not by choice either. The break to my hand last year is still not healed. The bone healed but the muscles contracted and now won't release all the way. So I will eventually have to have a surgery to 'release' {read: cut} the tendons. Yeah. In the mean time I can only handle a few hours a week of massage and even that is often painful due to the type of massage I practice. So I'm temporarily going to be working part time as an MT and part time as a front desk associate at my current spa. By the end of summer I will cease all MT hours and be part time at the spa desk and part time at an LTC doing activities, with the end goal of taking and passing the national certification course this winter and becoming a full time activities director/enrichment coordinator in a year or so when I feel I have enough experience to justify 'being the boss' I'm kind of sad but in other ways the steady pay, hours and work will be a nice change.

I absolutely love it. My opinion is that the really good stuff comes in the CEUs. The PT education was definitely interesting but the specializations have been so exciting. CES was especially fascinating as the brain is a huge focus, working to develop new motor programs to replace damaging ones. And how where you feel pain is not likely to be the area that needs work.

I've also been swearing recently. After having not used swear words since middle school. Pretty much only when I'm alone or just with DH, though.

Default Re: What's something new going on in your life?

After about 2 years of looking we found the perfect house. At least it looks perfect. It's in the neighborhood we wanted, my 9 year old son's best friend moved there last fall, it has a small lake with swimming in the summer and ice skating in the winter. The house has everything on our list; an acre and half private yard, a mud room, a large kitchen with a pantry, a decent sized laundry room, 3 car garage, possible 5th bedroom (supposed to be an office), a nice basement with windows, a front porch, a living room and family room on the main level. It's huge! But, it's $50,000 more than very maximum that we wanted to spend, and our realtor told us we needed to offer MORE. So, we're kind of stressed out about it, but we put the offer in yesterday and we're waiting to find out if it's accepted. We're also about to go camping so I won't be able to update for 5 days or so.

This is exciting! The whole house shopping/buying process is so stressful though! Have fun camping!

My 19 year old son went on a date last night with a girl I think I actually like.
