Yeah for Me!

Some good news!

1) Got my acceptance letter in to the Master's Program for Marriage & Family Therapy. I plan to start taking classes this summer. Why do this program when I already have a Master's degree? Well, I won't do the whole program, as I said I already have a Master's Degree, but I will do the requirements to get the Certificate in Marriage & Family Therapy and then get a licensure in it as well (LMFT). So, I'll have more letters after my last name then, which is not why I am doing it. I am doing it because I will become a more well-rounded therapist and gain more experience and gain additional graduate credits which I will need for a different licensure exam I will take this fall -- the additional graduate credits are required post-licensure.

2) I am participating in a 5-week walking program through the local hospital, which encourages us to walk 10,000 steps a day (you would be surprised how little we really move if we don't make the effort to exercise.) And yesterday I walked a grand total of 21,000 steps -- just in one day. More than double what I needed. Although by the end of the day I was feeling it. I walked several different times with several different people. This quarter we've been walking with the kids as a form of stress management for them. So, it's been good for me.
