2013 is gonna be great!!!!!

Sunday, February 24, 2013

I'm so excited these days! I just get this vibe that 2013 is gonna be a wonderful year for me and my husband!!!!

First off....
I got a new job this week!
For those that don't know......I work 2 1/2 jobs...... 2 part time jobs that equal about 55-60 hours a week and then another little side job that is pretty much whenever I can fit it in. The problem, of course, is that I'm NEVER home. One of my part time jobs was added in October. It was a retail temporary holiday slot that ended up extending after the holidays (but at somewhat reduced hours). So I would work from 8-2:30 at an office and then a few days I would zip over to the store to work and not get home until about 9:30 pm. Plus Saturday shifts. Leaving me only one day off a week. Well, that just doesn't work too well when you're trying to catch up on sleep, get groceries, prep food, clean, do laundry etc.
Oh yeah.....and I have a (very patient) husband who never sees me.
Now I've done lots of whining about the situation over the last few months but hadn't done anything. Well, all of a sudden I opened my resume, updated it and started searching! It just felt like the right time! And I found, what I hope will be, a perfect job. At least, it's 8-5 and it pays what I was looking for!
So, all of a sudden I see a light at the end of my working endlessly tunnel! I'm so happy! I can't wait to be able to cook and sew and sleep and read and spend time with my husband!!!
My house can be clean and tidy and I can fill up my new pantry that I had built several weeks ago.....but haven't had any time to work on!

In other exciting news.......
I found chocolate pudding cups made with almond milk at my Sprouts grocery store last night and I was SOOOOOOOO excited! I'm going to try one today! I hope it is yummy!!!

And hubby has had great news too! Finally, one of the positions he has been waiting for has opened up and he is one of only three guys interviewing for it! If he gets it that will help our financial situation a LOT.

Plus -in 2013 my car loan will be paid off emoticon so we won't have any car loans! AND the short sale on my rental house should be completed! Oh my! What a year and it's only February!!!!

Well, it's Sunday...so I'd better go work on that list of chores that have saved up all week!

    Congrats on your new job! So exciting! Nice that you will have more time now. It would be very hard for me to get everything done if I only had one day off too.
    Hope hubby gets good news on his job too. What a GREAT year and it has just begun! And you get to celebrate with a almond milk pudding cup!
