A productive member of society....again? looks like my days of watching crappy TV, washing dishes and talking to cats may be coming to a close.  I got the call today that I passed all the background checks (and believe me, it was many) to now be working again.  I am not sure the start date yet, but I think I am excited.  Wait.  I KNOW I am excited.  I am getting kinda lonely talking to only the kittens all day even though I enjoy their company and the fact they don't talk back.  I think I will pass mentioning where I am being employed for now....just know friends, it is awesome.

I am still working toward my getting in shape goal.  I am now up to about 7 mins on the ellipitcal.  I know it isn't much but I will get there.  With my new found exercise, comes trying new things....or I should say things I haven't tried in a looooooong time.  I think the fact I am moving now gives me motivation to be a better me.  Last weekend I did a little dancing at the club for my friend Ruthie's birthday.  It was lots of fun!  Then Sunday, I actually got up and kinda went roller skating with a friend who is a derby fanatic and a friend who just wanted to give it a try.  I have to say, both of those friends are inspirational to me.  They are ok with my lack of skill, but keep nudging me to keep trying.  I kept the skates on for a while, rolled on the carpet, and held up the wall.  I was ok if I wasn't going to be super fantastic wonderful at it....I was braving my fear and going.  I only did 1/2 a lap on the track, but I loved every minute of it.  I really am proud of myself for trying.  I head to the doctor for a visit tomorrow and will let you know if her scale has anything good to say to me.  LOL

I am proud of you for all of these things! I am proud that you're trying new things, I am proud that you are feeling better about yourself and I am proud that you managed to get through the rigorous screening process. Can't wait to skate again, but then, I would skate every day if I could.
