Just been busy. Wrapping up the end of the year. I guess I'll have to go over all of my goals for 2010 some time soon. I know there are some I met and some I didn't, some that have been put on hold or altered in some way. Maybe tomorrow or Friday. I've got Friday off for the new year's holiday.
My other excuse for not posting here is that I've started a new blog. This one is closed to everyone for now but I may eventually open it to selected readers. Right now it is sort of a personal log. Let me explain....
I have spent the past few days feeling rather pathetic. I know I'm overweight and out of shape. my blood pressure is up and I need to do something different with my life and health- I've known this for a while. So, for Christmas, I asked, and V got me, an elliptical machine (AKA the torture device). I was appalled at how out of shape I was and how hard it was for me to do even a few minutes. So, I have begun, in earnest to make some changes in my life, weight and health. Hence the new blog to use as a record that I can go back to and see where I've been. I will eventually need some cheerleaders (otherwise known as people to keep me accountable). I've already found one. C, a therapist who works for us occasionally when she is on break from her university teaching position, is also wanting to make some changes in her life. So, last night we had a workout challenge. We're hoping to keep it up even when she goes back to her real job.
So, this week I've been working, doing the usual household tasks and embarrassing myself with my 'out-of-shapeness'.
On a brighter note- the seed catalogues have been coming in fast and furious. Too... many... choices... not... enough...time.....
And, after talking to my immediate supervisor, I have to write a proposal about wanting to go to 90%. I have to detail how I see this working and the impact it will have on patient care. I've got the option to do half a day every week or a full day every other week. While time every week would be nice, I'm leaning to the every other week option simply because of travel time to and from work. With the bus trips, I spend probably an hour and a half commuting every day. And, I'm thinking that with a full day off, I would be more likely to be able to get larger projects accomplished. Still, I would LOVE to go to 80% but I know that financially that would never work with as tenuous as V's work situation is. Freelancing is definitely NOT that profitable- at least not when he's just establishing himself out there... And, we have to remember that J16 will be a senior in high school next year and is beginning to look at colleges. sigh.... I'm going to be working until I drop.
Again, I'll try to post a goal update later this week, and I need to start thinking about my goals for 2011.
