I have been babystepping back to the sweet sparking spot. Still not there yet though. Drinking water, eating freggies, need to move more and curb junk food.
My new job still hasn't begun. I hoped to be working this week. I will be getting some training late in the week NEXT week. Argh! I guess I just have to roll with it. I continue to draw unemployment and I really wish I could quit. Part of being on unemployment is having to report job search activities so I have to continue to DO job search activities even though I feel I already HAVE a job. But until I am actually working, I am going to keep doing all of this. I really don't enjoy making all these applications, but it is what it is. I have taken the attitude that I don't have to be a perfect fit for the jobs I'm applying for; if I believe I could do it, I apply. I only have a low expectation of hearing back from them but occasionally they do contact me! I have an interview with a school in China on Sunday night at 9:00 (they are in Beijing). Again, I don't really think this will materialize, but I am keeping my options open. My husband really wants to get work abroad so we keep making applications. It will be such a relief to be working again. Not just for my pocketbook but for my mind as well.
We are still planning to vacation this summer to Seattle. Not sure how extensive this vacation will be, but it's still planned. I hope to be able to bank a lot of money when my job starts and take the kids to Europe next year. My daughter will be 16 then, and the time of family vacations will be drawing to a close. My daughter really likes to go to foreign lands and meet people from other places. I think vacations ought to be good motivation for weightloss. What is wrong with me?
