Thank Goodness!!

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Thank goodness the holiday season and all its excitement is over for another year. Two weeks into the New Year and I can see some changes in my clothes. Stuff that was tight or snug are fitting better and I am having to kick my belt in another notch. YAAAAAY!! I have let all the managers know that I will be glad to take any extra hours they have come open and they are taking me up on it. I did make it through the big lay-off after Christmas but we are still not out of the woods. Just gotta focus on what we need to do next. We will be sending off our tax papers to hubby's aunt who always prepares them for us. Nice having a CPA in the family. We will have to spend it carefully but we will manage. I am keeping my focus on getting my weight down and keeping my spirits high. I am thankful each day for the things we do have going for us and keeping focused on the road that lies before us. I see people every day that are more in need than we and it helps keep my focus. I hope everyone is fine and will try checking in more often but we still don't have a computer of our own so I get by when I can. Thanks for continuing to stop by my page it means a lot to me. Hang in there girls we can make this all work out!! emoticon WE ARE emoticon

New Year's attitude--Starts Now!!!

Monday, December 12, 2011

I spent the last year not logging in, not watching my weight what I ate. Thanks to a year of being so careless and not doing what I really want to do has gotten me back further than I had come. I learned that no matter whether it is for pay or volunteering somewhere I am and always have been a nurturer. When there were kids in the house I was content but when Kaelin decided to move back to her grandmother's I was stuck at home and was bouncing of the walls after just a few days. I managed to get a job where I could make a little cash for Christmas and at the same time fill some of my empty days. I hope to still be working after the holiday season but guess we will have to see. If not there are other large stores that are soon going to be looking for someone with experience. My New Years Attitude is just to be grateful for what we have and not worry about the stuff we can't swing right now. I remind myself every day to Love Lots, Laugh all I can and Live! I am overweight again but one of the managers said she loved me because I am always cheerful and do whatever they need done. She is young enough to be my daughter but she is my supervisor and I don't give them any mouth when they ask me to do something. I like the job and everything looks good. It might help that my son works there and has for 2 yrs. He got his great work ethic from me for sure, LOL. Gotta get started on hitting some friends pages and let everyone know that Nomi is Back!!!!

    Good for you, go girl. I know where your coming from, I did the same thing with my weight in the past year, so I am now starting a new beginning. Good luck to both your weight and your job. emoticon

IT'S ME!!!!!

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Well girls I am still kicking and working stuff out. Had problem after problem and things we planned around did not work out like they were supposed to. We are now in a different city and state but the lousy economy followed us here as in much of the country and hubby is having problems finding work up here. Things look bleak some days and I think about giving up and just saying "uncle" but then hubby reminds me that I just can't give into it. When he gets low then I'm the cheerleader, so to speak, LOL. We are so much stronger together than we ever would be apart. So today I am feeling lucky. I have landed a job at a big chain store in town and have my hubby to help pick me up when I falter. Still don't have a computer at home but we hope to have one before too long and I can get by to check on everyone and all that I have missed. I love all of you. emoticon

    Hello friend!

It is SO great to hear from you! I'm sorry things aren't working out quite how you wanted them too, but I am glad things are looking up. So many of us are living pay check to pay check these days... HUGS! When I start to get down I remind myself that I may be having a bad day, but it could definitely be worse. STAY STRONG! I look forward to seeing you around SP more!

    Congratulations on your new job! I've always admired you for your resilience and positive attitude. Things have been tougher for me also in all areas. That is why I am thankful for friends like you who spread your light to others. I've missed you also and am glad to hear that you and your family are hanging in there despite of difficult circumstances. You remain in my thoughts, and I hope things will get better for all of us soon. emoticon

Just checkin' in.

Thursday, June 09, 2011

No time to visit still have no computer and no internet at the new place but we are working as hard as we can to get this handled. I have been dragging behind that wagon for so long now that I feel bruised and battered but not trying to give into that depressive crap. Checked out an article that my friend leanna sent me and lordy girl you must be reading my mind. I am going to get on track and soon will be back here everyday. For everyone who has checked on me and prayed for me through this life changing time I thank you. You girls are my anchor. You keep me from just floating away. Love all of you. emoticon
