My 4th first weigh in?

Saturday, January 11, 2014

Fall down 7 times, get up 8.

My last blog entries were in April 2012. I talked about getting fired and going to back school, my son's plans to marry, and my friend challenging me.
I have now completed school, insofar as, I earned two certificates. 1) Administrative Professional and 2) Office Assistant. As I shy from massive responsibility and stress by nature, while applying for jobs, I will lean toward the Office Assistant aspect: an office position that relies on admin skills, but no executive duties.
That said, I have started a part time job at the same company that fired me - doing what I did for them for the 1st 7 years I worked for them - delivery driver. I told my boss that I would be looking for full time work everyday after I got off work from this part time position, he said he expected me to fulfill my potential and would be glad to have me for as long as I was able to help them out.
My son DID marry. He and my DIL have bought a home too far away from me (drivable, but not conveniently so), and just let me know that I am going to be a Gramma in June!...to a Grand-Daughter! Yippee!
As for the friend's challenge- While in school, doing homework and stressing about bills and life in general - I pretty much dropped off the social face of the planet and produced a lot of cortisol inducing fat! I weight more than I ever have, including pregnancy. Much treadmilling to do!
My niece has joined Spark People and has put a few updates on Facebook, reminding me that this valuable resource is here for me.
I needed the nudge! Here we go again! emoticon
