- I am going back to school! I was stupid out of high school and only took a few college courses and then got a job and quit school. But I am going back now and really enjoying it. I am only taking 2 classes right now just until I get back in the groove of going. I am taking a basic math course (my WORST subject) and English Comp 101. I know they are basic classes, but you have to start somewhere, right? I am doing so much better in the math class than I thought I would. I am thoroughly enjoying English. I love reading and English is was one of my best classes/subjects in hs.
- I am finally going to get my divorce this year. It may take the whole flipping year to get it done, but it is going to happen this year. I kind of drug my feet at the end of 2010 about doing the paperwork. Not because I wanted to get back together with him, but just of the situation I guess. I knew it needed to be done, but I guess I wasn't ready yet. But guess what baby?! I am ready now!!! My dad a.k.a. my attorney, is getting the paperwork finalized so we can send it off to J to be signed. The reason I say it may take all year is because I know J and he will not willingly sign the papers. He is going to be an ass and drag this thing out, but it is what I expected out of him. The bottom line is that it's moving in the right direction and I am moving on with MY life.
- I have miraculously found my backbone. Who knew where it has been hiding for the past 30 years? I do, it's been under my fat butt and arms and legs and everything else that is fat on me. I have not lost at much weight as I have wanted to, but you know what? It's ok, I have not gained any and that my friends is a very good thing. Since I have class every night except Friday, I am trying to walk when I get home around 8:30. And since I take Moose with me I am totally counting it as a cardio and upper body work out since I have to wrestle him on his retractable leash! Good Lord he is strong and can tangle himself around a garbage can before you can blink an eye!! Ok, back to my backbone. I have one again. I have always been the nice, polite girl who really let people walk all over me my whole life. However, now I am the nice, polite woman who is not going to take crap off of anyone anymore. I, for one, am proud to be from the South and am so grateful that I was raised to say yes ma'am and no sir and thank you. That being said, I am done letting people walk all over me. I am going to stand my ground and speak up. Of course I'll do it politely with a smile on my face :)
- I am going to be a better friend. Sometimes I think we get comfortable in our relationships and take them for granted. I know I am guilty of this. This year I am putting more of an effort into being a good friend and putting myself out there. I am also going to be a better blogger.
So this is where I am right now. Getting happier and healthier in 2011!
