A little bummed..

Today has been a little crappy. I had been hoping to enter into a dental assisting program in August but just found out the program is completely full with a mile long waiting list. The student advisor said I should still apply and get on the list and I may get in during the February intake. So why didn't I find this out earlier? The course calendar said that registration for the program didn't begin until three months prior to the program start date (which has not yet passed). The program is already full because these are the people that have been on the waitlist for last February's intake. OMG!!!! So... I'm feeling very discouraged. I'm so sick of waiting... I just want to get on with life!

Oh, and my 83 year old Grandma got into a car accident last night. Nothing serious (thank god!!) but it was her fault and now dealing with all of that is pretty stressful. In all honesty, she probably shouldn't be driving anyways...

So.. food-wise I didn't do so hot. Too much snacky type stuff, not enough healthy meal type stuff. But tomorrow is a new day.. I'll start it out with a workout at the Y, get my pedicure and make sure I eat better.

Holly, I honestly and truly believe in that adage, "When one door closes, another one opens." Call me silly, but it seems to work that way when I keep my mind open to opportunities. Something positive will come of this!

Hope all works out well with Grandma. Fortunately, mine surrendered her car keys willingly. :)

Now, get out there and get back with the plan! (And I'm not jealous at all about the pedicure. Not one bit! *G*)

All the best to you as you try to find something for yourself. Believe me, I know what it's like!

Just keep taking care of yourself and I agree with Cammy about doors opening...

i'm so sorry about your grandma ...i hope things work out :)

as for the course..i completely understand being bummed!! long story, but i really do understand. Please please put yourself on the list..when your name comes up (and you really never know when it might) you can always say no if the time isn't right, but then again..you can always say yes!!

ok..and btw..that settles it..i'm going for a pedi tomorrow!!!!

Ew, bummer about the DA program, but I agree with Cammy: Keep your radar up and on for the next clue what opportunity awaits your willing self!

I'll also be holding good thoughts about your grandmother, too. Those are touchy issues.

Here's to a new week, new focus and new victories!

I just happened onto your blog via Cammy's (I think) and have to agree with her on this..when one door closes, another opens. I totally believe that things happen for a reason.

Glad to hear that Grandma is ok but can see where it is stressful. It would be really hard to consider whether or not it's time to take the keys.

Sending good thoughts your way.
