Full Disclosure

19 Nov

So, I actually DID write a post yesterday but it was all angry and sad so I decided not to post it. Because let’s face it, ain’t nobody got time to read that. I think that we all have are things that we have to work through and for me, at this particular life juncture, those things happen to be my current work situation and trying(TRYING!!) to go back to school to become a teacher. It’s tough. And that’s all I’m gonna say about it right now.

After I read what I wrote yesterday, I decided to put some of my anger into action. I ordered a study guide/ practice test/ program to help me get ready for the upcoming VCLA. THEN I signed myself up for TWO meetup.com groups. I am now a member of a book club and a social club. EEK! I’m excited! I’ll keep you posted on how those turn out.

I also worked out yesterday. I said that the beginning of the month that I wanted to do the “Turkey Challenge” and I did. I do. But I wanted to do it WITH MBM. Uh, that is not going so well. It’s tough with his work schedule (for example, he won’t get home tonight til waaaaaay late and will be too tired to attempt anything resembling exercise). I decided that I just hafta do it for myself. So I did the T.C. AND I went for a “run” with Slim. Slim thought he had won the dang lottery! He was all “this is SO great!” and couldn’t, WOULDN’T stop running. He is a great motivator and encourager.

Then I tried a new recipe for dinner and had it ready just after MBM got home so he didn’t starve to death. (He’s a tad dramatic.) I made chicken and asparagus stir fry. SO good.

So what started out as a crappy, angry, I-can’t-take-it-anymore kinda day, ended up being a fulfilling and satisfying evening.
