Today I took the plunge... I registered for the Prince Edward County ½ Marathon, which is 20.96 km. Scary, right? Yes, unless the goal is just to finish. I have been going back and forth on this goal... to run it, walk it or not do it at all! But, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do so I’ve decided to just take the plunge. How can I regret it if my only goal is to make it across the finish line... right??
"Maybe it's time to get a job?" they ask. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, it isn't. After deciding that I wanted my own income and more independence, and after either being in school, caring for our family and sanctuary for 13 years and/or having a business that eventually closed, I decided that I needed a change. First step was the huge decision, because it means a huge chunk of time away from my family and home. The next step was getting help to update my resume. Then, the job search. But, after 3 months of steps 2 and 3 and dozens of resumes including signing up with a local job placement company, the results were discouraging. No interviews. Nothing. Then, on a regular visit to my friend's awesome spa (Bliss day Spa in Trenton) and some great conversation with my friend, Tina, a suggestion snowballed in my head. "What about cleaning?" At first, it was "meh, I don't know..." but then it started to feel different.
