Hey all. Haven't written much these days. Dealing with ... stuff. I like to throw a quote or two your way though, as you see, to let you know I'm still alive.
How are you? How's your week going? We got freezing rain here last night which made for slightly slippery roads, but it's dissipated since and now it's just.. cold. I spent the evening with friends that are family and I feel a bit better; a bit more grounded. Content.
Is it just me, or is Christmas sneaking up on people? I haven't even begun to think about Christmas shopping. I have doubt about how much I'll be able to buy for presents; I'm still paying off Babu (which will be paid off in a couple weeks) and I've got to pay down a bit on the credit cards.. so.. I don't know. I'm trying to think of an alternative to buying, but.. what? I could bake.. but.. is that too.. predictable? Common? I have to buy for the parents, and my niece and soon-to-be-nephew (SO excited)..so I don't have much money outside of that. I seriously need to marry rich.. sigh.. money just doesn't grow on trees. Hmm.. I do like to entertain, so maybe I'll hold a big dinner? An idea. All I really want to do is spend time with people anyways.
My faith, after a brief hiatus, continuously increases albeit slowly. I still have problems with some things, but right now it just seems a bit.. easier again. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before rising. /crypticness
Cards. I was looking for Christmas cards last night and didn't see any I like. This is something I DO like to do, so I've gotta get on that. I mean, are we REALLY near the end of November already?! What just happened?
Applying for a second job is not going well; I'm not getting in anywhere. I'm only mildly frustrated. Give it time :P
I've succeeded in losing a few pounds. Not much! But a start. Eating (mostly) Gluten Free is helping. It's giving me encouragement to keep going.
Anyways folks, take it easy. Stay safe if the weather is bad; dress warm; prepare. Have a good rest of the week!
