I can't believe that I went a whole year without posting! I have certainly be busy, though.
In December '07 the salon where I was manager closed its doors. Since then, I have been unemployed.
Tired of not working, I decided to go back to school. I am currently enrolled in a course to gain certification as a medical assistant. The school that I am attending is working on getting the course for RN, so am looking forward to that in order to gain my nursing certification, as well.
I still plan to continue as a stylist. I found out today that I have been hired by JC Penny for seasonal help. The store manager is also interested in my being employed in their salon after the holidays. How great is that?
I may have to slow down on my college courses in order to work as close to full-time as possible, but I am positive that I can get both my education and support my kids without the husband once again. I really hate relying on the husband for anything, especially money.
My stitching has definitely suffered through all of this past year. I am making a promise to myself to get caught up on the items that I promised to others, as well as to stitch for myself. Sad to say, but I have exactly two things for myself of the dozens of pieces that I have stitched.
I am in a good place right now, though and am fairly happy with the direction that my life is flowing in. Hopefully, there won't be any issues that come up that are too awfully difficult.
