A date is set for me to start.

The lovely Deb over at "from Stilettos to Sneakers" is a marathon runner ( i know!) Well she guest blogged for Steph at "Problem solving Mom"a couple of days ago. And has inspired me..yep to go running! I have marked a half mile route (starting small) and am begining on Dec 1st so that i can get into it before the new year and not get fed up post Christmas. Hopefully i will get into routine. It's not that far, it won't take much out of my day..and it will be dark in the evenings so nobody will see me or at least recognise the wheezing mad lady trying to run bent doubled over! So thanks girls - it IS all your fault!
I have also spoken a great deal to my wonderful hubby. We have agreed that i can take two exams next year (maths and biology as i never really tried to pass them at school - to my shame) and then i can go onto a government scheme to become a primary school teacher! Its a 3 year plan but i am going to set it in motion! Its only taken me 35 years to decide what to be when i grow up and now i am here. I want to be a teacher!

Wow i have a plan! I think i better have a sit down now!! haha.

For 28 years I was an electrician (still am .. hold a Master's License) .. about 4 years ago, while I was off work, I explored new opportunities. I began teaching (electricity) to High School students (teenagers! yikes!) .. I found a new love .. so, 4 years ago, at 47 years old, I found a second career .. it is never to late to find a job you love ..

I wish you good fortune in your quest .. it is great to have a plan

Yay! I'm so proud of you for making the decision!!! I'll have to keep touching base with you to see how your doing. Please let me know... and let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck with the exams. Sound like you have great plans, and that's all it takes sometimes is the decision to start.

Hooray for you on the running. It feels so good to get into shape.

What great plans! I should be joining you on your first one. Great idea to get started before the first of the year. I will be anxious to hear how it is going.

And congrats on making the decision to go back to school to become a teacher!! It is such a rewarding job that I know you will be wonderful at. I actually look forward to going back to teaching once my boys are in school full-time.
