Wow. It is already the last day in August. I can't believe how fast this year seems to be going. It feels slow day in and day out but over the long haul it is flying. I hope the next little bit goes fast. I am excited to finish work and move to LA. I need to get a job but other than that I think things are going well. Hopefully that will go well also. I am almost finished with the resume. It was really dusty since II have been working for the same company for 14 years. I am also out of the habit of looking for work. I am planning on sending some resumes out tonight after I get home. It will be weird since there will be no preconceived ideas about me being fat. I usually just ignore that sort of thing but I won't even have to do that this time. Here's too finding the perfect job!
My husband goes back to LA this morning after his dentist appointment. It was a short visit. I will miss having him around. It will be 3 weeks at least before he comes back to close on the house, maybe 4 weeks. In the mean time I have plenty to keep me busy. I am getting close to having all the purging for the move finished. I worked on my resume last night. I found a couple or ten jobs to look more closely at. That is my next priority. Once that is done we could buy something in LA. I wish I could take a little time off but that is not to be. Having only one income for 19 months means I need to get crackin' on the work front. I will hopefully have something lined up for the first of October. I had better get going. I have 7 more days at work here and I do not expect it to be calm or quiet.
My husband gets back from LA today. He has an appointment tomorrow morning at the dentist. He will be going back immediately after, new job and all. I am really looking forward to seeing him even if it is just a few hours. I talk to him on the phone but I have missed him this week. I am very comfortable being alone but it is nice to have him around in person. Everything is going well with his new job. Now I just need to find one. That will be a priority this week. My last day is a week from Wednesday so I would be available for interviews. If I can get that taken care of we could buy something in LA and not have to do an apartment first. That would be really nice because we wouldn't have to move a second time. Well I am going to get off here and get ready for my hubby to arrive.
My party was a lot of fun. It is the tradition of my friends at work to write a poem for someone leaving. My friend Erika is quiet the poet when she does them. It was dead on and really appreciated. I will always remember and treasure it. I went way, way, way over on all my calories, fats, carbs, just about everything but protein. It was the only thing that was in correct range. I know I would though. I got up this morning and did my exercises. I am moving a little slow so I only did 40 minutes on the Life Cycle. I have some errands to run and I may go for a walk or ride some more later to make up the difference. All in all it was a great night and I enjoyed everyone who came. I may not miss ABQ all that much once I am gone but I have some amazing friends here and I will miss them. At least with email, Facebook, and all the other tech ways to keep up with people I will be able to keep my firends here more easily than ever before. I am going to really behave this week to make up for last night. I am back on track just like I planned.
Hello Friday. I thought you would never get here. Tonight is my going away party and I am going to be off the wagon so to speak. I am going to try to make some smart choices but my favorite bread pudding is coming so I know it will be over on fat, carbs and calories. Knowing that going in makes it an educated recoverable choice. That is the main difference between the old me and the now me. It isn't the end of anything just a fun event in my life that I will enjoy and carry on from. It is a pretty liberating thought actually!!
