Signed up

April 29, 2010

Finally yesterday morning before work I was able to sit down and sign up for my online travel agent classes. I am now just waiting to hear back from them and get started. I am so excited. I hope to one day be able to help any of you out there that might need help planning a trip or something.  I have been told that if I work at it for 2 hours a day for 5 days that I could be done in 2-3 months.  I think that is a reasonable time frame, especially since the first part of the lessons is going to be basic review for me. I am hoping that will go quicker.  But I am not going to rush through things. I am going to take my time .

How is everyone out there? I have not heard from any one lately..any one still interested in reading my blog.

I am hoping now that I have this travel stuff started I will be able to get more blogging done and be able to encourage those of you that have older children with SB to maybe look into this field. There is alot of things that are a challenge in this industry just another thing in life that we have to adapt to.

Thanks for reading and hope you all are enjoying this wonderful spring/summer like weather.


New Adventures

April 26, 2010

Well here I am blogging for the 2nd time this week.  I am starting on my new adventure this week..that adventure will be taking online classes for travel agency training. I am very excited to finally have the money saved up and to be able to do this.

I hope that one day that I will be able to help families and individuals with disabilities take a vacation of their dreams. Since I am also disabled I feel that I am able to look at places through differently then someone who is not disabled.

Also another plug for my boyfriends websites you will find a great amount of them on my website here. He just as of yesterday posted one for Patio planting. I bet some of you don’t have the yards or time to plant large gardens, did you know that you can plant tomatoes in a 5 gallon tub on your front or back porch and grow you own tomatoes? They are so good for you. Check out his new site. He recieves commission for each item that you purchase. Ok how is that for a plug for his site…LOL

Hope everyone is safe and sound from the storms we had this weekend. Lets get back to talking again and letting everyone know how your doing. ..especially me. I want to know that people are still interested in my blog. I find it difficult sometimes to write about what is it is like to live with a disability because I don’t think much about it.

My boyfriends mom is elderly and coming to the realization that she can’t do thing for herself and is really struggling with that.  I told him to use me as an example to her when she gets discouraged, to tell her that I don’t let things get me down when I can’t do it myself.  Is it hard when I can’t do something for myself? Heck yeah ! Do I let it get me down nope, that is why this new travel class adventure is going to be good for me..ok how is that for bring it back around to my topic of the day..ok better get back to reading and working before I have to leave for my office job this afternoon.

Blessings to all today

No Excuse

April 24, 2010

I am not going to make excuses for not being around. I am very healthy feeling really good. Don’t know why I am not blogging. Guess life is good and I am just out of things to blog about. My boyfriend  was asking me the other day had I blogged lately and I sadly had to tell him no and I was feeling rather guilty for not blogging. He encouraged me to try and blog this weekend. So this is for him and for all my readers that are out there that have stuck with me.

I am currently in process of going to start some online classes to open my own travel agency at home. I am excited about this and scared at the same time.

Hope everyone else is doing well.  I started the blog two days ago and I am just now getting back to it.

Working part time is really keeping me busy.  I am learning so many new things that I never thought I would be able to handle.

What has everyone been up too? Hope your kids and your families are staying healthy.
