same ol' same ol' BUT...

Been a little while...not really too much going on I guess. I am still trying to decide on all of the little details of career choices. A few new things have come up with the SEO stuff. I heard about a job here in Bend which would be awesome but I am not ready for it yet...still need training! I have been reading lots of books about it but I still need the hands on training to actually feel confident to apply for a job in the field. It is hard to set up training times because everyone is so busy and basically life just gets in the way sometimes! I wish there was an entry level job that I could do in order to get hands on trainig exactly the way the company would want me to do the job...haven't found that yet, though!!

I am also still into the dental assisting thing...actually I am really leaning more towards that at this point. It really interests me for some reason. I know I wouldn't make as much money as I would with the SEO but I could make a living for sure AND have job stability anywhere we might have to move for the hubby's job....


Two new things have sort of started happening...I have become a domesticated lady on fire!!! It is like I have a new role in life right now ha ha!! I am doing laundry, cleaning the stove, washing my car, sweeping, mopping, dusting and cooking dinner EVERY night!! We are only going out like once or twice a week which is WAY less than EVER BEFORE! I am just feeling the whole working part-time, taking care of my family thing!!! I have always been pretty neat and tidy with my house and enjoyed cooking... but this is like over-the-top! I am loving it....obsessed!!! Hubby is loving it too!

Another thing...working out! I am loving loving loving going to gym! I actually feel bad if I don't go!! I have always enjoyed being healthy but I am actually going all out when I am at the gym...burning and churning!! Hubby is also loving this too!!

Anyway, I am going to ride this motivation train for as long as I can...keeping up with the house, the gym....EVERYTHING!! Still thinking about the future but with a clear, stress free head!!

veggie lasagna

Ahhhh, one day of nice weather this week! Bend does not really have a Spring so when we get a day of sunshine and blue skies, 60 gotta live it up! Before work and after I sat outside...didn't do anything special. I took the kiddos I watch to the park, too. They loved it!

Anyway, I made a veggie lasagna earlier this week. It took A LOT of preperation but I stuck with it and it turned out great! There were a few things I would add...Fontina cheese and red pepper flakes! These two will give the flavor a little kick! Also, I forgot to put in spinach!! As soon as I stuck it in the oven I thought to myself...hmm, spinach would have been good! Oh well!

The best part was that my hubby actually liked it...he always complains when I try to cook without meat. In fact, that is one of the hardest things for me while trying to become a vegetarian... he needs his meat!!

I started a food log and exercise log, too. I think these will help me realize all the crap I eat! I am not worst eater at all but I am not the best either! There are for sure some areas I can improve! The logs will help me do that I hope!

As far as careers go I am still doing the SEO thing...I am enjoying all the research I am doing and can hardly wait to get some hands-on experience.

I am also looking into dental assisting...I have always been interested in the field and I really think I would be good at it. I love working with people!! I am ready to work with a group of people, too. I really, really, really miss that!!

All for now!

too much

So, I had a pretty good weekend although it pretty much SNOWED the whole entire time!! I mean, it was really coming down. It was weird never really stuck around or if it did stick it just melted away pretty quickly.

I did get in a couple of runs. It felt really good to get back out on the road and treadmill. I forget how good I feel after a nice run!

On the career front, I started doing some SEO research. It is really interesting stuff. It is for sure something I want to pursue more....

I also have been looking into physical therapy assisting and dental assisting. These two have been on my list (radar) for a while. I enjoy working with people and I also would like to work in office setting. I think it would be good to have professional my job right now, and in the child care field in general, it is really hard to have that.

Anyway, I am using the rest of the day to do some housework and some errands. Also, I am compiling a list of dentists and physical therapist that I may go talk to about their fields. Honestly, I am feeling a little stressed right now. I need to step back, think about the fact that everything will work out-because it has to...there is really nothing more that I can do to help this situation. I am putting everything into it and I know something rewarding will come out of it!
