... and you know, it feels good. Had 3 high cal days, so I'm working hard to keep that down today and tomorrow. It's also looking like I'll make my calorie burn goal for the first time in forever. I am a little over 400 calories away from it and I still have this evening and tomorrow to exercise, so that ain't nothin'!!
I am feeling reinvigorated about life right now. The sense of being on hold for most of 2009 was a lesson in patience and fortitude. Bit and pieces come up and ask for attention from time to time, but they are doable... so they get looked at and then filed away (sometimes in File 13)...
I am working hard on the physical fitness aspect right now since my first drill is on the 19-21st and I have no clue what to expect. I know that I will be in-processing, which for those of you non-military types, means getting all the paperwork squared away... sort of like starting a new job and filling out the W-2s, just put the process on steroids!
My daughter tried to bring the drama llama in to chew on the furniture this week again. She managed to get herself suspended from her job after she slept through a shift and called in for numerous others... so the first scheduled shift she has, she calls in. We tried to explain to how real life works, but she is 18 and still thinks that the world is all hugs and puppies... or whatever. So she has no money and then has the gall to ask for gas money. We said no. Her godmother, who she's been living with, is now tapped out. So soon enough Madie will probably be living in another city with her "fiancee's" family. I just fear that he's trying to isolate her. Unfortunately I can't do anything. I have just had to step back and let it be. I have to compartmentalize it and not let it affect my daily life.
In the meantime, Mark and I are getting ready to celebrate our 23rd anniversary on Sunday!! We actually have a night in a hotel and a nice dinner planned! I can't wait!
My darling son is just a wonderful guy. He's kinda getting through his own issues... but they are more typical.
So that's life right now.
