Okay, the holidays really jacked up my self-appointed weekly posting schedule. And then some other stuff happened, and life got really distracting for about a month. But, here I am now, freshly landed in a new year.
THANK GOD. I don't think I have ever been more ready for a fresh start in my life.
This year, I have a long list of things I want to accomplish. That's okay though, cause it's only January 18, and a couple biggies have already been smacked out of the park.
I finally committed myself to a clean break from my job and asked for a layoff of indeterminate length. I have a love-hate relationship with construction. Mentally, I want to love it. Physically, my body is solidly on the hating side. Arms folded and glaring. Since embarking on this career change 4 years ago, I've developed chronic sinusitis, hair-trigger allergies, migraines, spinal alignment problems, athlete's foot, and tennis elbow. Never had any of these issues before. Maybe the real mystery (now that I'm reading back that list) is why I kept on doing this for so long. Well. I had my reasons. But it's time to let go, and move on to figuring out what's next. The first career choice on my list is to be a real mom, and make breakfast for Miss G before school, something my work schedule has prevented me from doing for years. I cannot wait to make muffins from scratch tomorrow.
