Where is my Mojo..oh and some other news!

Okay all I am really starting to be concerned about myself, I have done zero sewing all week and I worked so hard in my sewing room this weekend getting it all re arranged and clean and tidy, I still need to take a photo of all my hard work. I even folded and shelved all my fabric stash, by color even. You would think that alone would get me going:(


Well I do have some other news besides the same ol same ol. I was offered a job this week at the nursing home. I would be the activities director. I have not decided yet what I want to do yet, I was going to start working there part time on the floor just so I could take the certification class and become a certified nurses aide and then was thinking about taking some classes at the college to become a certified nurse, and for all of you who are wondering about me haveing a diploma well I am proud to announce that I will be takeing a high school equvilancy test and will be receiving my high school diploma(not a GED) as soon as all of my stuff comes in that I ordered along with some online classes I will be doing will get me on my way to being able to maybe take some college classes. Anyway back to the story. Well when I went to acquire about the certification class(which is a 5 week class) I found out that you have to first be working on the floor while waiting for the next class well, they are full of aide wanna be's I guess you can call them and the class begins Jan 19th and it is already full so I would have to wait a few months before I could get hired on and start my hands on training while I wait for the next class to be scheduled. Any how while I was talking to the director of nursing, which just happens to be a friend of mine, she started talking to me about the director of activities opening, hmmm. It is still very hands on with the patients as I would be doing alot of scheduling of the activities as well as accessing their emotional state, motor skills, and such. I would have my own office and a few girls that would work under me and would assist with my part of the job. I would do alot of room visits and family visits to see where the patients were emotionally and such. She also mentioned that I would be responsible for their hearing test and aides and such. Any way there are alot more details that we did not get into, yet. The job would be M-F 8-5. I like that there would be no weekends and that I would be in charge of my own department and would love to make some extra money but, it has been forever since I have worked and to get back out into the real world is kindof scary but, on the other hand I am ready to do something different, with mama being gone now I get quite lonely not haveing anyone to do stuff with through the day and next year Bry will be in kindergarten so will go all day 5 days a week, and I want a serger and..............so I have really been praying about it. I have also decided that if I decide not to take this position I am still going to work at the nursing home part time, just so I am already employeed there and can use some of the hours I put in as on hand training hours that way when a position comes open on the floor I can just be moved and be preparing for the next scheduled class so, the only place they can put me right now is in dietary, yes kitchen, but it would only be part time, about 4-5 hours a day and would only be for a few weeks. Not bad, not really great, but temporary. Ok I know, blah....blah.....blah.......Just wanted to share and ask for all of your prayers that I make the right decision. I have untill the end of next week to decide.

Your cartoon nurse is a hoot! It's so hard to go to work full time with a 5 year old, I know how hard your decision is. Congrats on working for your GED! And my sewing mojo has been missing since October, so you are not alone! Good luck with these hard decisions. I suggest a nice long bubble bath with the radio playing softly.
