on friday, i had to go and do a typing test for a job possibility. i not only passed the typing test with flying colours, i got offered the job on the spot and i start on monday. it has been a whirlwind of activity ever since. this one will go longer than the last one. if i was told correctly, it will go until march 2012, when my daughter will be turning 7 years old. that will be the longest time i am employed since before i met my husband. i know that he would have not wanted me to sit around if i felt like working. once my daughter started grade 1, this is what i wanted to do. she is for it, since mommy will be doing something that i like and i will get to meet new people,too. the weekends are spent with her these days. my daughter is doing great! she enjoys making things and learning how things work.today, we spent a bit of time at the library. last week, she went there with her class in the morning hours. she really enjoyed it. at the moment, i have on a paul mccartney concert dvd and my birds are singing away happily to it. despite all of that which has been happening in my life, i have stayed on track and i am actually down two pounds since just before halloween. that is encouraging for me. before, i used to get down to the weight i started sparkpeople with and pretty much stay there, no matter what exercise i did or what foods i ate. this time, i have a better, more positive attitude that i will reach my goal weight and i will be able to keep it. i have much more energy,too, these days. i make it a point to take time every day just for me. that has helped me so much. people around me have told me that it is so relaxing for them to spend time with me these days. i am not running around nonstop. i still have hectic times in my life. i am just managing them better now, that's all. also, i have so much support that i can and will succeed. have a great weekend,everyone!
