This is the YEAR!!!

Thursday, January 16, 2014

So far this year is going great! My last blog was a rant about how lousy everything was going, and I threatened to be doing more whining, grumpy blogs. Didn't do it. Instead, I looked at all the positives, and decided instead of feeling sorry for myself, to do something about the negatives instead.

Thanks to all who took the time to read and comment on the rant. emoticon It did help.

So far this 2014 I have managed to lose 5 pounds. AND get a job! Not full time yet, but working into it. I will be doing home health, which is something I enjoy. Very flexible, so I still have time for my mom. Mom is happy, then I can relax and be happy. I will be able to keep my part time jobs, which is great, because I really didn't want to give them up. Actually tried to quit one of them, because I didn't think it would work with my schedule, and they said no, they will work around my schedule! Very happy about everything.

I know that life is not going to be perfect, but I have a feeling this is the year that everything will come together. And if it doesn't, it is so good to know that I have friends here who will listen to my rants, not judge, and just make me feel better about life in general.

    Before I read this one I read your previous one. I hadn't realize all those things had happened to you and am happy that you have been able to get a job which, for these times, is the most important. Wishing you all the best and hope that 2014 continues to bless you with good things.

    Yay, Kathy! That is just fantastic. I know that it's hard when you're under that cloud to think that the sun is EVER coming out again...but isn't it awesome when it does? I am so glad things are untangling for you. And good job on not giving in to the funk (and I don't mean in a George Clinton kinda way)!

    As much as we'd like to, we can't all be positive all the time. The steps you have taken in the past couple weeks are so good. Remember, every day is a new day to start afresh. Don't beat yourself up if you slip, just jump on the wagon again.

    Stay positive and good job on the five pounds!
