By this point, our "news" is not so much new. But I did promise to update, so here ya go.
After much discernment in finding a new niche/career for Mr TCIE, he decided to enroll in a nutrition program to become a Health Coach :)
Coupled with his education at The C.ulinary Ins.titute of Am.erica, we think this will afford TONS of options for him, and we are both just so excited about the many, many prospects - including joining efforts to be a Health/FertilityCare Practitioner Team, possibly some personalized meal planning, cooking lessons, cookbooks, fertility-specific cookbooks, etc. (Or actually, my favorite idea is a co-authored "Food for the Cycle" book, which will help women to know which foods will be best for them at certain times of their cycle, regardless of if they desire conception.)
So... that's our news. Classes began (online) May 14th, and he is really enjoying it thus far!
More importantly right now, we are going through (yet again) another very intense time... which will continue through the 3-day weekend and beyond, probably for about 2 more weeks. I ask for your prayers to that end, for our strength to make it through and to both be better people on the other side.
Financially, things are also a complete wreck over here. But I'm hopeful that after this rough patch, once DH can begin seeing clients, we'll get our heads above water. Remember that home loan modification we applied for? We still have not received an answer from the bank, and because of that, have not made any mortgage payments in over 6 months. (We've been told NOT to make payments while it's in review, just fyi. I'm not THAT irresponsible ;) )
This is the ONLY reason why we're semi-making ends meet right now. My salary between the two jobs isn't enough. Despite the fact that I work 7 days a week. Talk about frustrating.
I do have some more thought-provoking posts in my head, which I will try to write this weekend.
I almost hesitate to push "publish" with this one... so boring... sorry...
