So I have not blogged since my Twilight Challenge Team's 100 day countdown to Breaking Dawn. Such a long time, and I know that I need to do this more often. I was losing faster when blogging.
I am finally employed full time AND part time, and we are currently looking for a cheaper apartment. Hoping January brings us a new (and much less expensive) place to live.
It is hard to believe that Christmas is less than a week away. It has not seemed like Christmas since I moved west--I am wondering if the warmer winters are having that effect on me! I have our tree up, it is small, but cute. I got mom's package yesterday, with all the presents (and homemade peanut butter cookies) from the family. At least we will have a few presents under the tree!
I am grateful that I did not have to move back to Indiana. I am thankful for finally finding full time work, even though it will take us a move and a few months to be fully caught up with bills. If we can move in with a friend it will save us a nice $500 a month. Rent out here is exorbitant. We are looking for just ourselves though. Hoping that something comes up soon!
I have missed being on here, and last week I worked about a total of 60 hours. Going from about 15 hours a week to 60 something was overwhelming! I have tomorrow off paid though from my new job, so I can get caught up on some sleep and get some stuff done for the weekend. For the record, working retail during the holidays kinda stinks.
So, hoping after this week i will be able to catch back up with everyone and my work load will slow down to about 50 hours a week. Catching back up on here is the main thing. I am still figuring out how to work in fitness minutes, as I pretty much drop into bed at night right now. Since I work retail, and have worked the shipment and replenishment (ie--moving and carrying boxes all around the store and constantly twisting and turning to fill the shelves with product) I am and have been getting my heart rate up, but not sure just how much. I have arm muscles again--small but they are there! woot!
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season, and wish the best to everyone!
