Friends....it 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
