New Career?

I changed the look of my blog as you can you like it?

This has been a very interesting week.....

I have been a stay at home mom for the last 7 years by choice. This past July my husband became unemployed. So recently we have been discussing options. Our small town has limited places for him to get work and he has no 'papers' only experience so the chances of him finding something are slim. On the other hand I could go back to work in my career as a Developmental Services Worker and I would love that but my dream for the last 3-4 years has been to be a birthing attendant/Douala. I am taking sometime to look into this career to try and figure out if we could make it financially if I do this; we have some time before any decision has to be made. The other big thing is I am not willing to give up Homeschooling so I need to make sure we can flex everything so nothing is sacrificed.

As a part of my exploration I am helping teach a Labour and Birthing Course this week. I am loving it!

On the health side of my life....on Tuesday I made Potato Pancakes for the family, this was first time I had ever made them but my husband really wanted them so I obliged and decided I would try them too for lunch. BIG mistake!!! I have not eaten white flour in over a month and within 1 hour of having these I was doubled over in pain. The pain didn't let up until near 7pm that night. I couldn't eat or drink anything. Once the pain let up I had a Chamomile Tea for supper.

I also bought on E-bay the 30 Day Shred, I have not got it yet but I am looking forward to getting started when it does arrive. Have any of you done this workout series? I would love to hear from you if you have.


  1. Wow, sounds like you have a lot of exciting possibilities ahead!

    Good luck with the 30 Day Shred. I haven't done it but hear it is BRUTAL!!

  2. I do like your blog's new look. I haven't figured out how to change it yet. One day ...

    I wish you all success at deciding on your new path.
