What have you been up to?

Well hey there!  I feel like I haven’t blogged here in weeks.  Oh wait.  I haven’t!  I decided to pop on over here and update everyone on my life.  Because I know you’ve been waiting on this.

I hope this finds you all doing well and enjoying your life and being happy.  Life is way too short to be anything but happy in my opinion.  We get shit thrown at us from all sides and it’s up to us how we deal with all that.  I slip and fall, but I get right back up and keep plodding forward.  It’s the only thing we can do, right?  I mean, the other option is not acceptable, so I just keep putting one foot in front of the other and remind myself to breathe every now and then.  When I get super stressed or upset, I tend to forget to take a breath and I like to remind myself  to breathe.

Life is quite interesting right now, lots of things going on.  Some good, some bad, and some great.  My shoulder is healing up quite nicely and instead of having the shoulder blade sitting an inch and a half away from my spine in resting position, it is now a quarter of an inch away at resting position.  This is good!  I’m also able to do one arm bent rows with 5 pounds, so it’s a start to get me back to lifting like I want to lift.   I am still working out almost every day Monday through Friday.  I rarely miss a day.  And when I do it’s because of a doctor’s or physical therapy appointment.

Things at work are quite strange now.  One person left and the other is staying due to them creating a position and deleting another position for her.  I can deal with this one so I’m not super upset anymore.  When it first happened, I was upset and then I started looking for the positives and I have found them.  I’m good with this.

Financially, I’m still struggling.  But I’m trying and I’m improving at it.  I’m cutting back some more, not over spending and doing what I need to do to fix all the shit I’ve created.  It’s stressful and overwhelming some days, but I just keep breathing and keep moving forward.  I’ll get there.  I have faith that I will be okay and that my Higher Power will guide me in all of this.

I’m also done with school.  I now am a college graduate.  I won’t be traveling to walk in the ceremony in January but I know have an Associate’s in Applied Science degree in Public Administration.   I’m still debating on whether to go back for my Bachelors or just leave it at the AAS.  I don’t know how I feel about going back into school for another 2 years or however long.

I’m sitting here enjoying my hazelnut coffee and watching the VH-1 top 20 countdown.  I love music videos.  Then again, I just love music.  The guys at work, however, do not like the music I listen to when I’m working out.  They think it’s too angry and mean.  I listen to Godsmack, Disturbed, Eminem, Chevelle and Three Days Grace type music when I work out.  I want something fast and furious to motivate me to move fast to finish those brutal workouts he gives me.  Oh well, can’t please everyone can we?

Take care of you!

Until next time…
