Charting my course

Monday, July 07, 2014

I had a great honeymoon week off with my new husband, my new best friend. We had a sort of staycation honeymoon, opting not to go out of town just yet. I stayed busy, stayed productive, relaxed, caught up on sleep, explored different areas with my hubby, smiled, laughed, gave thanks to God, went church, went to discipleship meeting, went to my new gym, ate good, ate real good, finally had my lobster emoticon emoticon , saw two movies, gave thanks to God!

I am planning my work and working my plan. I said after I got the wedding over with, it was not going to be business as usual. I am putting Dave Ramsey principles into effect. I am naming every dollar, seeking additional avenues of income. It is not going to easy, this I know, but the rewards are going to be great. I am part of a team now, a united couple, together learning and growing in God's grace and sharing HIs word with those who don't know. I am charting my course with the help and grace of God. emoticon

    Good for you for being intentional in charting your course! Our church went through the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University and it was AWESOME; really gave people hope and realistic goals to work toward. Sounds like your "honeymoon staycation" was relaxing and a great time of bonding. What a wonderful way to start your life together as a team!

July Bang!

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

As always I look forward to production shutdown and this time is no different expect I threw a wedding into the mix. Five days now have past since my wedding and I am in wedded bliss. I also am taking this time to discover who I am, where I want to go career wise and how to make my home healthier, happier and cozier. emoticon emoticon

I hit the ground running...so far I had two phone interviews, talked with a couple school recruiters, in the process of becoming a Home Depot expert with all my honey-do projects and just trying to settle into a regular rhythm that works for the both of us. I attended a seminar last night on weight loss and concluded my last diabetic education class this morning. Wow. I am not playing. I caught up on my sleep, didn't realize how sleep deprived I was and now it is get down to business. So I shall. emoticon This weight will not be an albatross around my neck, it will not an excuse to for me to binge and I am not going to fall into old habits by accepting what life has to dish out. I am going to make it happen. Boom! emoticon emoticon

Wow, I am married now!!!!!

Monday, June 30, 2014

Finally, jumped the broom, was declared man and wife and I let out a big hallelujah! Glory be to God, all praises unto to Him. Louis and I are very much married and very much in love. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am just getting around to the land of the living, was running on pure exhaustion for the last two weeks, not sleeping well, handling last minute details. Thankfully and prayerfully, I was able to pull it all together down to the wire and help create a small, simple wedding for both of us to remember. emoticon emoticon emoticon

It was good to see my family for a quick moment and meet new family members. I saw some old and made some new friends. I entertained here in our home and now I have a wedding band on my finger. I tried to keep it simple, cut cost when and where I could and still have something nice to reflect back on. I thank God each and every day for HIs bountiful blessings and I look forward to making and sharing memories with my sweet Lou!

Entering In....

Friday, June 20, 2014

Getting down to the wire, in a festive frenzy for my June 28th nuptials. I am being tested of my patience at this time in my life that is really shooting my stress level through the roof. My job takes my energy, robs me of my peace and just plain doesn't care. I don't mean chicken soup and hugs kinda of caring, it just doesn't nurture or foster any hope for me right now. I am flatlined when it comes to creativity and feeling good about a day's work done. It is an ends to a mean, it pays the mortgage and buys the Science Diet dog food.

God never panics. That is what my sweetie texted me today from the message he heard in church last night. God is sovereign, He is in charge and He orders my steps.

    Right now you are laser focused on a day just a few days from now, a day that has nothing to do with your employer. But you'll get there and it will be wonderful, and one day it will be years behind you. Enjoy every minute of it!

100 Straight Days...

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Wow, I have logged into Sparkpeople for 100 straight days now. emoticon emoticon emoticon Light bulb moment now. If I can just log onto this website daily-no matter what, what else could I achieve if I put my mind to it? 100 straight days of no fried foods...100 straight days of walking cardio...100 straight days of bible study...100 straight days of furthering my higher education. The list can go on and on. I can no longer use my upcoming wedding as an excuse, my sick dog, distance from my family, my changing church atmosphere, this that and the other. If it is up to me, then it is up to me. I have to make this work. I have to do the work. If I expect great things to happen, I have to be prepared to do the work to achieve them. Yes, truly a light bulb moment in this hectic life of mine. emoticon emoticon
