Big news

Hi girls!  I am so glad to see some posts out here.  I have missed you all and I have missed posting too.  

I have been very busy the last few weeks.  As I have mentioned, my life has been ever changing over the last 15 months or so.  I have felt like someone took my 52 cards and threw them up in the air.  I have been watching and waiting as they slowly fall to the table.  And I am happy to annouce that I think they are all falling right into place.

I accepted a new job this week.  It is truly very close to being a dream job for me.  I am so incredibly excited.  I gave notice at my current job today and start my new gig on 5/11.  I had to decide if doing something that made me happy was worth taking a pretty big cut in pay and working even more hours.  Guess what?!?!?  It is.  I may have to make some drastic changes in my life (like selling my house FSBO in this awful market), but I already feel so much better!  Please let me know if you know anyone in the market for a great house, awesome neighborhood and convenient location!

The finances are working themselves out.  I still feel like I am on a really good path, but my progress will be drastically slowing here in a few weeks due to the pay cut.  But again, it is worth it!  I cannot wait to do something that has me excited to get out of bed every morning.  My current job may pay a lot more (20%), but I am not passionate about it - at all!  This new company is stable and has a product that I truly believe in. 

On the weight front I am down about 40 lbs.  I was down even more before the easter bunny paid us a visit - dang bunny!  But the good news is that I am back on track.  As for the mother's day walk....I'm not sure if I am going to make it.  My goal is to be there, but I am going to have to fly out of town for my first day of work/orientation that afternoon.  I want to make sure that I get some good time in with little Mo and my mom and grandma.  I will let you know next week.  If I do make it I will be walking, so you will not be alone Tea!

Well, I need to head for bed.  I have had a crazy week at work and I had an emergency root canal this morning.  My tooth was killing me last fall and they couldn't find anything wrong.  It got better, but for the last few weeks I have been having killer headaches and I got a big bump on my gums, but my tooth felt fine.  I wrote it off as allergies/sinus stuff after talking to my doc, but went to the dentist earlier this week just in case.  It was absessed and I couldn't get away from work until today.  Needless to say it was really bad - they had to send me to a specialist and even he thought it was pretty nasty.  I am hoping to feel better tomorrow and be able to return some calls - sorry I have been so hard to reach.

Good luck girls and keep up the good work!
