It’s been hectic


Ok, so not so much.  I’ve been quiet recently but I won’t apologize.  It’s been for a good reason.  Between dealing with my son’s school antics, cleaning house, trying to find a job, getting ready for a week long trip to Florida and dealing with the new software at the day job, it’s been a bit hectic. 🙂

At work, we have that whole new software system thing and all the growing pains that go with it.  At one point, I thought I was going to be doing the education videos for the software but that, apparently, has since gone out the window.  Ah well, so much for that great possibility.

I’ve also been bugging my instructor half to death about getting started working.  About pushing ahead faster so I don’t have to get a regular job just so I can quit after 6 months to a year.  Pushing ahead faster so I can move to Florida already doing my VO thing…..that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen either.  So much for that idea.

In the meantime, I’m practicing and practicing and practicing but I can’t seem to move any faster myself.  Never ending laundry, endless dish washing, constant cleaning and I just can’t keep up.

I’m going to Florida for a week to see about getting a job, meeting some people, making some good impressions and getting closer to this move.  It needs to happen NOW, but I can’t very well move without a job.  I mean, I could, but it would be stupid.  I don’t want to mooch off of anyone while I try to settle my kiddo in a new school, find a new job and then find a new place to live.

Another note, TOTALLY off topic, because I just thought of it, I bought a nice mint plant yesterday at the grocery store.  I bruised some leaves and dropped them into my tea as I as making it.  Now my gallon of tea has a hint of mint in it!  Not enough to over power anything, just enough to be barely there, it’s good!

I bought myself a FitBit Charge 2.  I’ve been walking my butt off, unfortunately, it’s still there.  I’ve lost about 5 lbs, and as with any weight loss, it fluctuates a bit.  My Dad got one the next day, so it’s been kinda fun having a little friendly competition.

My son has me so incredibly frustrated I can’t see straight.  He’s being 12, doing the same things I did….and THAT’S what makes it so frustrating!

I treated myself and got a gel manicure a few weeks ago…now I remember why I quit doing it….other than it being expensive as hell.  I need a fill in the worst way but I’m not willing to pay that kind of money again.  Trying to save my money for the move and a down payment on a house.  I don’t want to ruin my nails, so I’m filing them down to a manageable length every week and trying to let them grow off.  Since the color is royal purple, they look odd against my pale hands.

I can’t even begin to count the applications I’ve filled out, resumes I’ve sent out or phone calls I’ve made, I just hope something comes of it soon, it’s time to go.

And there you have it.  All the boring, non-descript details of absolutely nothing.  🙂

Another day puts me another day closer to moving!

While it has been incredibly stressful, it has also been a learning experience.  I’ve learned things about myself I never wanted to know. 🙂  Isn’t that always the case though?  We lie to ourselves about those things for a reason, right?  When you have nothing left but to be honest about those things, and then DO something about them, it is a form of empowerment.  I SHALL PERSEVERE!
