I don't get a chance to write here often, so there are a lot of updates to write about.
The first is my stalled weight loss. I have been stable at 142 when I want to drop to 125. I started going to the gym again (where I'm now an employee) and cut down on the soy ice cream. Basically, I'm trying to go with those healthy habits I know I need in order to get into the best condition possible. I'm going at it again! Woohoo!!!
Then there's the whole house saga. Basically, my husband and I were house hunting and facing some challenges. With me being uncomfortable with the financial solution he wanted to pursue and me not budging on it and instead offering alternative solutions that I would be more content with, he decided that I suddenly didn't want a house, which is not true. He held it against me and it was simmering under the surface, making me miserable even though he wasn't talking about it. You know how it is when your partner has something going on in his or her head and it creates this atmosphere, well, it was an atmosphere you could cut with a knife.
I finally couldn't take it. My nana had to have emergency heart surgery, I've been adjusting to work, my husband has a new shift and it's been hard for me to get used to it (why did he think it was okay to accept this promotion, meaning a new shift, when it would mean not sleeping together? I guess it means more to me than to him and I need to accept that), and just all these things piling up. I was at the dining room table and started crying like a baby. When I could express myself I told him exactly why I was crying. Like a deer in the headlights he asked me what he could do for me. Well, duh, stop your garbage with the house and just be more creative and supportive! Stop always going against me!
So, my home/married life has been kind of unstable. I've been weathering it like a trooper and haven't given into any bipolar episodes. I can't stop knocking on wood (not literally), and can't thank my lucky stars enough for the stability I'm experiencing in spite of the issues at home and in my family.
My nana had some tests on Friday and I'm supposed to see her today. I don't know how the tests went. I feel like she's going to pull through just fine, though she's frail right now. It's time for me to see them even more often than I already do. I live about half an hour away and see then once a week for about 2 hours. I should go over there maybe twice a week, I don't know. I'm going to clean there today. This is probably the first time they've let me clean. They're too proud to accept help. My grandfather will be 80 in the middle of this month, and nana is 78, almost 79. They're getting up there and I want to have the time with them that I can.
I also joined this century and got a Smartphone. This phone is like an iPhone but is Android based; it's a Samsung I do believe. I'm getting used to it. My old phone was a flip Nokia and it was from the Stone Ages. Almost right after I got the new one the old one died and refused to come on at all. I guess it was good timing.
The woman who sold us the phones and the package had a skirt pretty much up to where her backside met her legs. I'm not sure how that was presenting a professional image, unless that "professional" meant professional in a different kind of work.
She lied about X, Y, and Z. We later complained to corporate customer service, however they didn't help out too much. Basically we are stuck. NEVER go with Sprint! It seemed like a good deal but isn't really, unless you like companies where the associates lie to you and corporate won't back up anything. We talked to the store manager and he kept making excuses for his associate. Uh, no, take responsibility and do something for your customers already. So, like most companies, once they get you to sign that's the end of your rights I suppose. Needless to say we won't be going with them after our contract is up.
That's about all I can think of for right now. I'll write more when I get the chance.
