Ah, life. Just when you think you can't take anything else, God let's me know that "oh, yes you can." He's right, but man, does it suck. Here's a short re-cap of what life is like right now:
Irritants (sounds better than saying negatives
need to get a full time job; am having no luck thus far
heat does not work properly in my car
engine light just went off in my car on my way to a meeting this morning
two nights ago, my 45 yr old brother in law was dropped in our lap as he was kicked out of his parents house in CA, and is living on my couch
clutter (be it papers or people) in my house
can't find comfortable winter boots (really? sounds so benign, but I'm on a roll now!
can't find sweaters that are long enough to cover my behind while not looking like Arnie's Tarp & Tent (thank you for that phrase MRS!)
working through those marital issues
have a contact to call on Monday morning for my car (thank you wHoly Fit!)
have heat in the house, if not the car
have my lovable, adorable, faithful dog who has been my protector these past two days (who knew he had a protective streak!)
have a computer in which to continue looking for a full time job (and to spark, of course)
had a very good meeting this morning
have 2 gift cards to buy a new bra and maybe a sweater to cover my hiney & hips
SUPER POSITIVES (yes, there is a distinction):
For the first time EVER during a crisis, I have stayed within my calorie range and logged my food every day!!!!!!!!
I completed 150 minutes of exercises in 3 days and am getting ready to don my workout clothes to do my dvd that's scheduled for today!!!!
I HAVE NOT TURNED TO FOOD TO GET THROUGH THIS NIGHTMARE!!!
Despite everything else, that right there is a victory for me!
I have today and this moment and that's all I choose to focus on.
Rock on, kids.
