Making Progress

It has been a while since I have written anything here. So much has happened. I will give a brief update.

Most of my time over the last few months have been focused on getting my non-profit, Defense Against Diabetes, up and running. I’m one document away from having 501(c)(3) status. I have a website up and running, although it could use some help, lol. One of the biggest hurdles I was facing was the expense of the training that the CDC required to be a recognized diabetes prevention program.

Well, I was in southern California last week to complete the Lifestyle Coach training I needed. Now that training is complete, I will be having an informational session next week, and hope to begin classes in August. I am so excited and nervous.

The other big event in my life is my oldest son going to college. It just hit me that he will be leaving in a couple of weeks! 😳 I was excited shopping for stuff for his dorm room but had to show some restraint since he is having a party next weekend. Some days it is hard to believe that I have a child old enough to be in college and that I played a part in him getting there. I’m a proud mother to say the least. Now to figolut how to entertain my 8 year old.

As far as school goes, I have not been keeping up with my homework as I should but am still doing well. I was recently invited to joining Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society. Of course I accepted. 😁 I often feel I’m not smart enough to be in graduate school or to be a nurse practitioner, but I guess I am doing something right.

These past few months have been full of ups and downs, but I chose to only write about the positive things at this time.
