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!
