Change is GOOD

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Getting back into the swing of things.

Getting stronger and stronger emotionally and physically day by day.

New challenge is to look smokin HOT come New Years.

When one door closes, a MILLION more seem to open. My eyes are open now to that fact. I am loving it. I have been invited to more parties than I can count - I attended my very first football game for the Oakland Raiders - LOVED it - tailgating, screaming like a crazed fan - the works! Going to another one this sunday vs Denver.

I'll also be attending an adult Halloween party this year - for the 1st time!! I have been invited in the "past" but a certain unmentionable "person" didn't ever wanna do that sort of thing. BUT - I'm GOIN! With Frank and my brother and SIL. I know I still need to blog about my new boy buddy - but believe me it'll take a LONG blog to do that. Just suffice it to say I'm very happy - feeling so much better.

Took off by myself on Sunday to go on a hike at a lake I hadn't been to in a very long time - did all 12 mi. LOVED every minute and damn, it felt GOOD!!

Anyhoot - here's a pic of the costume I'm gonna attempt to pull off - hopefully the muffin tops will be in hiding that day lol


It's called "sexy referee" - hopefully I can bring a lil bit of the "sexy" and not just plain horrifying to it.

Frank will be dressed as either a football or baseball player - he's debaiting. Men...and they say women can't make up their minds haha jk.

ANOTHER BIG CHANGE...
I CHOPPED my hair. Last night. Yes, you read right.
The "unmentionable" person would never let me cut it - so to me it kinda became a burdeon (if that makes sense) and I want to be a whole new improved me. It was theraputic in a strange sorta way. My hair was almost down to my tailbone. And though it's always been a trademark - I was ready to just start fresh. I didn't cry suprisingly when my girl who does my hair chopped it and all I could hear was "SNIP!!" She seriously asked my like a jillion times "are you sure??" before she did it. I'm really happy with it though. So healthy. TOTALLY different. MUCH needed change. Got some funky color too.

Here's a pic:


So..what's the verdict? Lemmie know what you guys think - and BE HONEST - I can take a lil constructive criticism lol...now mind you, I said a LIL constructive criticism haha.

It's a Terrific Tuesday and life is good! Embracing the new life I have. So very fortunate to have the two best children a mother could wish for. My glass is most definitely NOT half empty!!!!

Oh yeah...change is GOOD, indeed!!

Love you guys - thanks for ALL the sparkgoodies and words of encouragement - It really does make a HUGE diff when you know you have some wonderful ppl cheering you on!!

xoxo

    Wow, you are one of my favorite sparkfriends and I kept checking to see if you were back, then I went off the ranch for a while but gained so much weight back, that I knew I had to come back to the ranch with all of you and then I read your blog. FIRST, your haircut and YOU look great! I am glad you got some therapy and took some time off so you could find you again. Your amazing, go get your RN, go run off steam, go be yourself and don't let anyone take that away from you again!

    emoticon Love the haircut! Who knows, as the summer comes back next year, you can you shorter, if YOU want to.:) I love that you can be you nowdays. It's an awesome thing. I spent about 25 yrs of "walking on eggshells" not wanting to set him off. I agree, Life is Good, God is Good! Enjoy your new life! Your costume is really cute...and you'll look fabulous!!
