So I have been struggling up and down on my weight for the last couple months trying to get over this plateau. I never could cross the 25lbs weight loss goal UNTIL TODAY!! WOO HOO!
CHECK IT OUT! (Don’t mind the long overdue pedicure! HA)
I am so damn proud of myself this week it’s crazy!!
I not only hit a HUGE weight loss goal for myself but I also landed an interview with a company I have been consulting with for over 12 damn years! I have applied numerous times to no avail. Either they wanted me to move to Texas or someone within the company got the position. I feel REALLY good about this opportunity as I have never landed the interview before. As my Dad says “razzle dazzle them with your charm, you will get it!” Fingers crossed as my interview is MONDAY!
Also, most of you know my parents lost everything and almost their lives in Hurricane Isaac. Since the storm my mother has been living in Texas with my sister and her family getting wonderful care while my father tries to rebuild their lives together. My father finally got a first floor apartment a week ago (being that my mom can’t walk due to dementia, first floor apt was required and was quite a wait!). I have been spending almost every day since cleaning out their flooded home, organizing what was salvaged, buying furniture, and just trying to put a woman’s touch to their new home the way I know my Mom would. Now that we are all ready with accommodations for my Mother, she is coming home for good on Saturday! It has truly SUCKED without her here. Even though my Mom is ill with dementia, she is still my Mother who I love dearly. I may have to decorate her house for her now, put the little added touches to a place only a mother could teach a daughter, but all in all it is worth every minute doing so to finally get her home with her husband. I can’t wait to see her in her new home and in the arms daily with my father again!
It’s been one AMAZING week so far for me!
Can’t wait to see what Santa has in store! HAHA
