So...it's 2012. Whoop-dee-do. Actually, I do have high hopes for this year but so far I am severely unimpressed. Frank is still not working (we're at a month since his last short job) and I am getting to that point where I am getting to be "not nice" to him. I don't like getting that way but my frustration level is at its breaking point.
Nick turned 20 yesterday. I meant to blog about it but I was sort of a wreck about it. I am no longer the mother of a teenager. He is out of his teen years. I have been a parent for 20 years. That is a very long time. I don't feel old enough to have a 20 year old and I certainly don't want to think that I LOOK like the mother of a 20 year old. It was very upsetting.
Since last Thursday I have been to the doctor twice and I have an appointment for a mammogram on Monday. Apparently I am trying to be healthy in the new year.
I have organized a "Biggest Loser" challenge in my office. We start that on Monday. I think it's going to be fun but I am finding it hard to get psyched up about it when I'm at home when all that is going on here basically sucks right now. It's hard to find time to exercise when you have a depressed husband moping on the couch staring at you. It's worse than the creepy guy at the gym!
I have decided that it's time to change churches. I've had issues for a while and I am finding that they aren't getting any better and so if I want to go to church and actually focus on worshiping God, then I need to be in a place where I respect the leaders. It wasn't an easy decision and it was rough to tell my small group leader that I was leaving but I am hopeful that this is the year that we find a church home that fits our family and where we feel welcomed.
So here we are; 2012. My hope is that things get better all around for all of us. Anyone have any big goals for this year?
