My 2010 New Year's Resolutions included the standards. Of course you have the loose weight, spend money wisely, make it so you can spend it, and to show your family how much you love and appreciate them. I could go on all day about my family and all it's many facets and I will do that in a later post. Suffice it to say for now that I have learned some hard lessons so far in the 21st Century. It's been a tough 10 years. The bottom line is that Family really does come first!
I'm not doing as well as I had hoped in any of the Resolutions. I have GAINED weight, have alot less money than I did on January 1, 2010, and have been working so much my family barely hears from me. So, today is the first day of the rest of my life. Today I am going in to "work" at the coolest job on earth! I woke up this morning to a hug from the best man on earth! And as my feet hit the floor, I was greeted by the cutest puppy on earth! I revel in unconditional love from family and friends. I enjoy overall good health (despite the lack of care and sometimes deliberate sabotage to my metal and physical well being). With all that going for me, who could or should ask for more? I realized when Romeo kissed me as he left for work this morning just how lucky I really am and had an epiphany, which manifested itself in creating this blog. Bearing in mind all the good things life has to offer (and I will in my new found positive outlook) I am heading into the day with a good attitude and a plan.
My friend and fellow crafter, Amber, covers every other weekend for me at The Pink House. Check out the website and keep an eye out for more posts on this huge part of my life. http://www.charlestonscrapbooking.com/ Memo is teaching a class on Saturday, at great sacrifice with her current life situation. The store will be in good hands and I will spend the weekend with Ramon, starting at 6pm today. He thanked goodness it was Friday this morning because he has a Mon-Fri job. I am going to work on what has to be done first in order to ensure the success of the store until closing time. I have several huge challenges that shall be overcome. My awesome psychologist has always reinforced that I can accomplish much more with a clear mind, free of the anxiety which can keep the solutions hidden in the fog. Today those demons be gone!
This is my first personal blog, so I am sure it is not the norm. Nothing I do ever is. Eye am what Eye am. Strong enough to leap tall buildings with a single bound! Enough story boarding, let's kill something! 3 cartoon references should get me off the couch and on my way.
