What a year this has been (2012)
This year I got divorced after 24 years which is the best thing for both of us, we were bad roommates at best.
I have an empty nest all my four children are gone and out on their own in different states :( that is such a tough adjustment for me. I did get to see my twin girls off and on during the year so that was a good part of the year. One of the girls is now in Afghanistan, thank God they allow communication so I don't have to continually worry day and night.
I moved from my beloved Washington State to California, to be with my current love. I just wish I could move him and his family up to Washington. Because SACRAMENTO is not a fun place to be, if it is I have yet to EXPERIENCE it.
So the whole year of 2012 I spent roughly 3 weeks working, I have been continually been looking for work this year and it is so difficult to keep my chin up, it is not for lack of experience, I have almost 4 years of college and 30+ years of experience. Is it because I am creeping up on 50?
So what am I going to do this year coming up?
Got an appt with a college and going to check into their 3 programs (Health Information Technology, Business Administration, Network Security)
Work harder on losing weight, physical appearance and being fit seems to carry more "weight" than they let you know. I also need to take better care of my heart and health, I have been having chest/breast pains and other unexplained pains. Seeing the doctor tomorrow about that.
Once I get a job and some real income coming in, then I want to explore California with my boyfriend and his family and my daughters when they come and visit me. I really want to like this place, but so far all I have seen is panhandling (they will come up to your window), rude drivers who get out of their car and yell at you, snobbish people who are too busy to say hello or acknowledge you.
But thank you all for your support in 2012 and during my darkest times, I hope 2013 I will have lots of positive news to share with you and hopefully my diet "ticker" will start sliding downwards LOL
