With all the unemployed citizens you would think more people would be spending some time giving back.

So this blog is going to start out as more of a journal blog until i get the swing of things down.

So i am bored stiff because i have been jobless for 1.5months, while my house is constantly clean i need to do more and keep active. I feel like i am gaining weight/ losing muscle mass because i am not nearly as active as would be if i where working. My husband says i am just down on myself, so today i tried a lil TLC today. Now i am feeling like i can get some online work done.

So last night i decide while i am waiting/ searching for a new job and or new opportunities i would start volunteering. I  used to do volunteer work growing up my parents were always active in some project either  be it through the Lion’s Club or 4-H. After going off to college the volunteering became center around the university and there was always an event to get involved with so it was easy. Now that i have settled into a career i find that i have completely disconnected from something that filled my weekends and my since of pride that i was contributing member of my community. In the last five years i have done very little to no volunteer work, so times are changing. Last night i started to research volunteers wanted in my area and found the lung association is having a even in the Sacramento which is near by so i signed up to volunteers on march 24th for half the day. Next i found and ranch near my home that does horse riding for disabled kids, they need volunteers to walk along side the horse while the kid is riding. I feel like this may be two birds with one stone, volunteering and exercise. So there is a meeting this Saturday to become qualified to help.

I  am hoping that by posting this blog i will hold myself to actually doing it!
