Trying to be optimistic

For me and others that I know 2010 hasn't been that great of a year. I hope that the new year will bring new opportunities. Goodness knows I'm trying with the blogs and selling make-up. I realized I need to take charge of my destiny. Sitting around and waiting for someone to realize that I'm a great person didn't work last year. Going to make an effort to come out of my shell and get people to notice me. I'm ready to change. I'm ready to evolve. So, at this time next year I hope to be at a place where I'm finally satisfied with my life.

Christmas is almost here!

Well, I'm ready for Christmas. Done with all the Christmas shopping. Hoping that the snow that's going to arrive this weekend doesn't keep us for traveling to grandma's house for the holiday. Excited for the new year to arrive. Hoping that I get some good gifts this year. I would like a netbook most of all. I already got a great Christmas gift. Duran Duran finally released and new album and it's fabulous. My favorite song off the record is The Man Who Stole a Leopard.
Looking forward to a tour next year. No matter where I am I will see them in concert.

Weight Watchers

I have decided to try Weight Watchers again at the beginning of the year because of this Yes, fruits and veggies are free. So, instead of going for a cookie that's worth 2 points and skipping the banana. I will go for the banana. And since I plan on eating fruits and vegetables for breakfast and lunch the points system will be much more easier for me to follow. I'm excited about this. I think I can really do it this time. Finally get the weight off and it will stay off.

I haven't been exercising as much lately. I've been taking a break, but I will be back to it January 3, 2011. I'm ready for the new year. I'm ready to finally get control of my life.

Ready for the new year

So at this time of year I'm tired of the year we are living in now and ready to begin a new. Of course a lot of the things I said I was going to do this year (lose weight and get a full-time job) didn't happen. I always start out with good intentions. To be honest the job thing wasn't my fault. I applied for many jobs and got very few interviews. This is the first time in my career I can't get hired in social services. Something I just don't understand. Now, DH wants me to get my master's degree. He thinks that will make me more marketable. Frankly, I think I will have the same problem and we'll have less money because it's so expensive to go to school. I know what I want to do. I'm scared of failure. I'm scared I won't be a success. I'm just scared about the future. I love blogging, sharing things on the internet through social media. I had lunch with an old friend a couple of days ago. She suggested I try the blogging, social media thing for about 6 months. If it doesn't work out then go back to school.

DH is another story. He wants to move to Canada now because he thinks the US is going in the wrong direction. The GOP don't want to work with Obama. Some of the Democrats don't want to work with Obama. So, nothing will get done and the country will go to hell in a hand basket. This is what my DH is thinking. He thought the same thing after Bush won in 2004. The country is in trouble lets move to England. I don't want to go. I want to stay here and try to make things better in my own way. So, my entire life is up in the air. I just wish for once I could have a stable life. A life where I know what I want to do and where I'm going to live.

The battle of bulge or what I like to call the battle of the century with my weight. I know what I have to do. It's doing it that's the problem. With all the stress in my life eating fruit and vegetables aren't going to cut it. But we are going on a trip next year and I want to look good. So, I'm going to have to do more yoga or something to calm my stress levels down and get more willpower to stick to the diet I know works for me. I had a bit of success with it earlier this year.

2011 what do you have in store for me. I can't wait to find out!
