The Beautification of Phebe

I got that from Notblushing, but love it.

I'm halfway to my goal. It's like coming out of halftime, with the third and fourth quarters yet to play.

Well, and maybe I'm kind of stuck in overtime - that's how I try to look at my ever-present plateaus.

Oh yes, I agree that dance has it all. I've tried Jazzercize and Zumba and somehow I was always standing on the leg the instructor wanted me to kick.

In college we were required to take 3 semesters of Phys Ed.
Basketball - A - I was a star
Tennis - A - I won the tournament
Social Dance - B - and that was a gift. LOL

I didn't realize that I had not yet "friended" you. Just did that.

Yes, would love to work in the water. There are limits on how much time you should spend in the water due to the chemicals, but that really appeals to me.

Thanks for the great information. Son is way too old for WIC, he is 14. I don't really know where any services might be in this town, but I do have a phone book. Thankfully, my landlord pays all the utilities, so I don't have those bills.

I am thinking that between the unemployment and the child support, we will be okay for a short time.

As far as educational opportunities, the logical step would be to go from PTA to PT, but PT is a doctorate program. At my age, that seems daunting at best. I was thinking along the lines of Athletic Trainer or Personal Trainer and shift over into the fitness industry. That would be less of a time commitment.

Hey, I appreciate any and all ideas, so no problem there. I will still look into it, just not sure where to look since I am relatively new (14 months) to this community.

Thinking outside the box is good, and I am not always good at it. All of my Spark Friends have been very supportive and encouraging, so I have managed to stay upbeat. Of course, I am still less than one week from becoming unemployed, so I may start to get discouraged in the unemployment lingers on for a while.

Haven't looked into schools yet. My experience looking at schools when I first got out of school was that they want a full PT, not a PTA, which is the certification I have.
