So 2020 is blending the days together, right? I completely forgot about the date until I started seeing Spark messages. I've maintained a weight loss for eight years. That gave me pause. I never thought I would ever say that.
I didn't lose an enormous amount of weight like some but I have left the yoyo days behind for eight years. I say this as I'm waiting for my margarita pizza to be delivered.
Besides the struggles 2020 has brought, I have struggled through the past four months going through a divorce I do not want and refinancing our house in my name.
After three failed attempts by the bank to get this right, I finally closed on the house this week. It was very surreal, signing all of those papers by myself.
I recently purchased a passion planner, a pretty planner book. My daughter talked me into buying it and I must admit, I'm enjoying it.
Each month, there is a spot to write something good that happened. I have not done that yet, until after the closing. Before I went to bed after the closing, there were tears and then I opened the book and wrote "I bought a house".
My life is unrecognizable right now. The movie Under The Tuscan Sun came to mind the day after I closed. When Frances said "I wake up in the middle of the night thinking, ‘You idiot, you’re the stupidest woman in the world. You bought a house for a life you don’t even have.’”
To which Martini talked about train tracks that were built before a train existed that could make the steep trip.
Some day 2020 will be a memory so we all need to stay strong, take care of ourselves and each other so that we can get out there again one day to kick up our heels and hug our loved ones.
As Frances also said in Under The Tuscan Sun, "Unthinkably good things can happen, even late in the game.”
My pizza is here so thank you for all of your encouragement and cheering. I wish you all a beautiful Thanksgiving and a wonderful weekend!
