Life changes ....
It's more for me to get my internal shit out anyway.
My last post was my birthday ....
I can't even begin to tell you the number of changes that have taken place since!
I'd say the biggest change is that Jack & I called it quits in November after 5+ years.
It was my decision more than it was his. The distance had finally taken it's toll on me and
I wanted something else for my life.
It was/is heartbreaking ..... but also the right thing to do.
I've also managed to lose about 45lbs since July.
I feel fantastic and don't look half bad either ... lol
For 46, i'll take it! lol
Sadly, i've had 5 deaths in my family since October with the latest being last Sunday.
It feels like I have a black cloud hanging over my head.
Maybe it's karma.
I just know that I have never wished for winter to be done as much as I want this one to be done.
My oldest brother was almost killed in January.
He took out a utility pole at 2am on a VERY snowy, shitty night.
He was drunk.
Yes, he was arrested and yes, he will deserve whatever the Judge gives him.
It's my SIL and my nieces and nephew I feel bad for.
Speaking of my nieces and nephew .... my Q graduated as an Automotive Tech from college in December. I am soooooo unbelievably proud of her! She's working in a dealership and loving life!
My nephew graduates this month and already has a few job prospects lined up.
Again, I am an extremely proud Aunt!
There's been a whole lot more too .... trips to warm, exotic locations, attempting to date again (that's an entire post in itself!) ..... so much more!
I won't get into it all now .... i'm tired of typing.
Hopefully i'll be posting again more .... the dating alone might make me do it!
I do have a question to ask .... since when is it acceptable to let your freak flag fly high and proud on a first date???? Not that it's that big a deal ... I just wish someone had told me the new rules.
This getting old is pure shit!
