I have proven once again that my brain is not in a place to be doing “one post a day” lol I will be out driving, going here and there and suddenly remember I was going to try to make a post each day. Then when I return home – poof, gone from my brain once again.
This week I did start a 1 mile a day thing with some friends on Facebook. Monday was day one, yesterday being day two, I forgot to go to the gym because Hubby had the day off and I was hanging out with him LOL We did walk around the mall and Walmart and I did get a mile in, but I did not sweat like I did Monday. Making new habits since we moved has been so very hard. I will admit that.
Honestly, it has all been hard lately. I have found my self heart-achingly lonely some days. I have worked from home since May 2013. Going on six years now. I have always had family around. Either kids that lived with us or kids that were stopping by at some point in the day/week for something. Now, not so much. The only person I had for the longest time to talk to was my husband. Then he went to work, but work was second shift for the longest time. All shifts were from 2-11. Lately, they have been better, and only 2 shifts a week have been the 2-11 shift and I am happy about that. But now, with my parents here, even though he is home it’s not alone time 🙂 And even with them here, it not the same. My parents don’t have the same interests I do. Hell, even my gorgeous sweet husband has very dissimilar interest than I do, good thing we have other things in common lol With my children and sister they at least understood the things that interest me, like technology and some crafts and nutrition. So while my house is not scary and empty each night, I still feel very alone here. I don’t “go to work” to make new friends. I have fairly secluded in my new role, so I talk with my one co-worker and that is not often. I have to find a way to get out and meet people with my interests and that means I need to put myself out there and get uncomfortable.
I was searching online for some quilting shops to see if there were any classes I might join. THAT really does not matter until I get my house, because all of my material and my sewing machine are in storage. I have some crochet that I started, got one and a half rows done and set that down and have not picked it up since. I have a counted cross stitch kit I started August 11th…have not picked it up since that day either. I seriously have zero regrets about this move…but I am finding that my personality is making the transition hard. We went out to dinner Friday night with one of John’s co-workers and his wife and I dominated that conversation lol First adult conversation I’ve had with people our own age in MONTHS. The library was offering camera classes, but they wanted you to go through the Beginner class before you took the one that started last Saturday. I don’t know…something will come along. I did reach out to the designer that has been helping us with the house stuff. I told her I was going to send her a friend request once we finished all the house building business lol I just want a clean line between her helping with stuff as a friend vs stuff she should be billing the builder for. She said she would like that. And Tammy the cabinet gal was talking about Zumba classes while we were there, so maybe that is something we can all go and do. Maybe I will meet my friends as a result of building my house LOL
OK well that is all I have in my brain for now. OH! I am going to start myself a 90 plan on February 4th. That is 90 days prior to our family vacation! Also 91 days before my 30 year wedding anniversary 🙂 We are all going to Disney and Universal Studio’s that week and being comfortable in my skin will be amazing. We are renting a home over in Kissimmee for a week with a pool…so that will be fun and I’ll be ready!
I am also in horrid pain. So far today I have taken 8 200mg Ibuprofen tablets. My neck hurts so bad I can hardly lift my arm. I had been getting a massage once a month in Michigan. Since we have been here (7 months) not a single one. Between the stress of loneliness and the stress of buliding a house and living with your parents….I’m busted. I can’t look left if I wanted to. I do have an appointment at 3:00 with a new masseuse to hopefully get me out of some of this pain. I think I am going to go take the last 40 minutes of my lunch and lay down for a bit.
Have a Great Day!!!!!
