Quite a bit has happened since I said goodbye a few weeks ago. I’d love for you to grab a cup of coffee, settle in and catch up.
I finally got a job in my chosen field. It is still technically with my current employer but a different department. I love it so far. I feel so much more like myself. I have more energy. I get done at 4:30 instead of 5. I am slowly getting more and more responsibility. It sounds like eventually I will be doing everything (currently some tasks are taken care of by another department).
And with that being said… I am getting a new car in June/July. I told myself no new car until I got a job. I could get it now but the summer model will have 10 airbags (instead of 8) for the same price. Why not wait?
My new car, the 2013 Malibu Eco. I want it in this color or black.
I have also decided to join a gym. I want to start running and lifting weights again. I am going to check out LA Fitness. It is fairly close to the house/park and ride. It is also the least expensive; Lifetime is the other close gym. I also started playing my playstation move game The Fight. It’s not marketed as a workout game but my god! I was sweating, breathing heavy and my arms are like rubber now. I only did the intro moves, three fights and two training tasks. Wowzers. I also want to get the UFC trainer game for another workout idea.
I have read one of my books (a Dean Kontz novel) and one kindle book (the Help). Yes, I gave in and bought a kindle. I got a $50 amazon gift card and couldn’t resist. I am currently reading some magazines and then I will go back to another book, then a kindle book etc.
I have done a few sketches and set up my painting. Soon I will actually do more on the painting. I bought new brushes to help motivate me. I also have done some new things in town but nothing on my list so I guess you can say I have half worked on these goals.
I have not done anything with the backyard. I got a book of low water plants that I need to look at. The backyard seems like a huge undertaking. I have broken it down into smaller goals but still some of those are large projects. The first is to put in a drip system which is probably going to be the most work which might be why I am pushing it off. :
