Above is a picture from a hike yesterday that I took with my two 13 year old nieces, it was so beautiful!! These two nieces are my goddaughters and I treasure my time with them. They are so special and thoughtful, and growing up so fast! After the hike I took them out to lunch, then thrift shopping (they had never gone to a thrift store), then to the nail shop where one niece got a manicure and one got a pedicure. I love to spoil them!
This week I got some great news – my job is not ending on June 29, they invited me to stay through the end of the year!! This is some welcome security and stability that I really needed. Although it’s Desktop Support and not Security which I would prefer, I am tolerating it well and finding some stimulation in the job. After that long stretch of unemployment and financial insecurity, what I feel like I really need now is some security in life.
So now I am getting ready to MOVE OUT OF THIS SHITHOLE APARTMENT!! I don’t know where I’m going which is a bit stressful because I gave my notice that I’d be out by the end of June, and I haven’t started packing either!!! But I am looking at some places Monday after work. I’m finding that some of the really nice places do not accept birds (How DARE they?!) so that’s freaking me out but I will just continue the search. Yesterday I got very stressed out and took some Xanax. It was either that or binge out on sugar.
So, I’m going to keep this short because I want to get a little packing in before I go to Mom and Dad’s. Mom had surgery on her hand this week and can’t drive so I offered to take them to church. Damn it why do I do these things?! I guess I have to go to church. Should be torture.
My mood is holding up well except when I get stressed out, then everything goes to shit. So I need to manage my stress. I am going to commit to doing a little bit of packing every day after work. I just HAVE to, so I don’t get too stressed out on the weekends. I don’t want to backpedal on my weight loss and start bingeing (how do you spell that?) on sugar. So a little discipline is in order. NOT my strongsuit.
Hope everyone out there in Blogland is good. WELCOME to my new followers and THANK YOU to my current followers for reading!! Love to all of you and Peach the Fuck Out!! 🙂
