Merry Christmas to all.. and to all a good night!

Cheers to you, my friends.
Here is hoping your loved ones were smiling, santa brought you what you want, and that you didn't eat so much food that you are miserable right now. Here is to spending time with those you loved and honoring the ones that you can't be near.

Merry Christmas, my friends! :)

Well... my man met my parents this weekend. I can't believe how well it went. I am still in shock. The whole process was a bit distracting so I slacked in my blogging. I am proud to say I slacked on blogging to spend time with my man and my family. Good job me!

After traveling last weekend, I would love nothing more than to stay in my bed all weekend. Alas, it will not happen. Too many things to do :) My goal was to get my Christmas shopping done by Dec 5th. I had about 75 percent done on the fifth and then ran out of mulah. That being said, I am still WAY ahead of the game. I am known to be a bit of a Dec 23rd shopper.

And since I haven't gone on about it for a while... Who is still watching The Biggest Loser this season (My one of two shows of the week)?!??!?! I Can't BELIEVE that Vicky made it into the finale. I wanted to throw something at the TV. I also am very frustrated by Heba and Ed's plea. If that were my spouse that may be eliminated I would plead with America for my spouse to stay. Ed... GOOD JOB! Heba... WTH?!?! I am just as into this season as I usually am. I hope it improves next season or I will be down to one show.

So there is my big update. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods!

Do you ever...

Do you ever get the feeling that you aren't doing what you SHOULD be doing, careerwise?

I like my job. It isn't a bad job at all. I like my boss. I like the people I get to see. I don't wake up and dread going to work (as I used to with my last job but that is a whole other story)

Nonetheless.... I feel like my career needs to take a turn... more like.. a 180 degree turn.
I don't really have the money to be doing that at the time. I barely make enough to keep afloat, so I don't want to harm myself more than I help. Somehow I would need to qualify for financial aid.
Things I have thought about:
Home Heathcare
Going back to school for nursing/ to be a nutritionist/ a dental assistant or something of the like
Massage therapist
Yoga instructor
Cosmetology school
(any one seeing my pattern here?)

Right now I work in the automotive industry.
So, like I said, a total 180 degree turn.

The current problems that face me:
Lack of finances both for the education it would take to switch AND to keep myself sustained while partaking of such training.

Employer loyalty. My current employer has done much for me and I would literally be leaving them high and dry if I just all of a sudden changed my mind. I know they say there is no such thing as employee/ employer loyalty anymore... but I don't feel that way. Just because employers doesn't always live up to their part of the bargain does not mean that I have a reason not to.

Fear of the unknown.

Lack of health insurance in the meantime...

Anyone have some feedback? Been in a similar situation? Please share...
