When I joined SP back in July of 2012, I was so determined to be in a different place by now, yet here I am starting over. The past few months have been a crazy whirlwind here at home. I'll try to give you the abbreviated version.
In August, my youngest sister and her fiance moved in with my other sister, my hubby and I. My two sisters didn't get along very much and more often than I would have liked, I found myself playing referee. The one sister met and 'fell in love' with a guy online from Illinois and made plans to move there. Two weeks before Christmas, I drove her to the airport in Orlando. I was a little depressed for a bit, but thankfully have now come out of it. Right before she left, however, a young lesbian couple that lived in the apartment across from us with one of the girl's father ended up homeless because the father was a drug addict and alcoholic and had a raging temper. So, kindhearted person that I am, I took them in. They left to go back to PA where they are from 2 weeks ago. So, the holidays were a tad stressful for me. And did I mention that in the middle of it all, I ended up with pneumonia right around Thanksgiving, got better, then got the flu right after New Year's? However, now things are getting back on track and I feel this is as good a time as any to start this journey again...and this time, my little sis will be doing it with me. So, now I not only have the support of SP, I have an actual buddy here at home to do it with me, too. And I am in such a better, stronger place. This is going to be my year! I'm determined and won't have it any other way :)
