The other day my sister and I took my niece down to the Cape to see my brother-in-law. He is a captain on the Capt John & Son boats out of Plymouth. They had to tug one of the boats from the harbor down to the boat yard since the engine is being repaired. It was just a good opportunity to get out of the house for a while so we went down and of course I brought my camera. I'm a shore girl, the ocean is my home, I can't get enough of it. I have taken 9,635 photos with my camera and I guarantee at least 1,000 of them are of the ocean. Maybe more.
This week has been a week of contemplation and decisions regarding my employment status. I chose to say no to a position that would require a lot of travel. I was very conflicted about this but as soon as I said no, a weight was lifted. Last Friday I was promoted to health & well-being shift supervisor on the Monday night shift. It gave me a real boost and reaffirmed that I do want to continue on with my health & well-being career. When I was laid off in the fall, I seriously considered getting my MSRD (Masters in Nutrition/Registered Dietician) but quickly realized that I could not afford the time nor the money it would take to get there. Lately I've been looking into an alternative that would take a lot less time and cost a lot less money. I'm not going to go too far into the details yet, but I'm feeling like I'm on a good path and I hope to keep moving forward.
