Reminiscing and bagels

Friday, October 28, 2011

Been a bit since I posted. :)

Don't really have any progress to report. My weight is creeping up more and more. I'm on a bagel kick, and I know they say it's not the food, it's the total calories, but seriously...these things are bad for my waistline. A lot of dense empty calories--and most importantly they seem to actually make me hungrier when I eat you'd think I would just STOP eating them, wouldn't you?? :p

Work is in a state of flux--rumor has it there will be another round of layoffs on Nov 4. Can't wait. We are still short a person, supposed to have an answer about hiring another office person this week--but they pushed it back to next week. Hmmm. Coincidence? So I work long shifts which throw off my eating even more, and compensate by getting a stupid chocolate bar. Oy. I'm a person who thrives on stability and consistency, and not knowing what my hours are, if they're going to change, or even if my job will still BE here in a week's time, is killing me.

Oh, did I mention the class I signed up for at the gym cancelled. Again. I don't think I'll bother trying to get to it anymore, 3 strikes is a pretty good sign. :/

At least DH's job is going along nicely, and my cat is currently healthy and well-snuggled. :)

Something really hit me while I was reminiscing last night--all those people in my past--all the ones that mattered SO much at that time--most of them are long gone now (as in, I lost all contact with them). Really struck home that they don't matter in my life at ALL. Therefore, their opinions and such shouldn't matter anymore, either. What are the things that matter? Your family. My parents, even if we aren't that kitty, even if she isn't a person per se....if I had kids, they would matter. A small handful of people that I still keep as friends--you know, the ones that you don't see for 3 years and can start talking to them as though you just saw them last week? THOSE ones.

Hold on to the things that matter.

    Liked this one so much I had to come back and read it again. You're so right about worrying about the opinions of people whose opinions just shouldn't matter....

    But as I was re-reading it, it struck me that you left yourself off the list of things that matter.............
