It has been almost a month since my last post. Because we had gotten so behind in the money department our internet service was cut off. We don’t have it back up yet but probably in the next week or so.
Life is otherwise going well. My new job is stimulating, exciting and HARD. Kind of like my man. LOL
I love working in the courthouse. Not only is it cool to be in the courthouse, but by virtue of my job I’m right in the center of all the activity and all the stories, and all the people. I am enjoying it right now, and trying like crazy to avoid any horror stories of criminal trials but I know that soon that will not be an option. I have only been in the official position I was hired into, for about a week. I really enjoy it, and the people I am working with. I am very sorely missed up in the Probate department too so that is sweet to know.
I am doing some wonderful, special things for myself. This weekend I am getting my teeth whitened! And I’m having another skin consultation, and probably will schedule the first few weeks of whatever skin treatment I decide to go with. Probably microdermabrasion or peels or something. This is to work on reducing the appearance of the acne scars. After that I am going to see a local, very well known and respected cosmetic surgeon about getting neck liposuction or a chin or face lift. 😀
In the meantime, my BIL and SIL found a treadmill for me, and I’m looking for an exercise bike and mini trampoline for my fitness regimen. I decided that with everything else I have going on, going to a gym is not something I want to try to fit into my day. With the treadmill I can do walking or running for 30 to 45 minutes before I get ready for work every day. When I come home from work I’m going to do 30 additional minutes of cardio every other day, and the alternate days some flexibility or strength training.
My ultimate plan is to get to feeling as good about myself (my appearance, etc.) as possible. Because a lot of the things that bother me can be worked on. Thus the plan.
I made a list of all the things I want to do or set into motion as a regular thing and I’m going through it trying to make those things happen.
I got a fabulous new haircut too, and I would love to show you a pic but I am not really feeling like uploading pictures at this time. It’s SHORT! and it’s all newfangly and shorter in the back than the front. It’s really quite mod and sexy. Hubby loves it and I have gotten tons of compliments from everyone.
Long story short — feeling tons smarter, more valuable, and prettier. Also feeling tons more tired and when it’s been a long hard day, I am not quite being the nicest mom in the world. This is something I need to work on.
I am off meds as of last month. So far I have not seen the need to go back on. My doc was going to take me off them soon anyway if I continued to progress because now the doc and my therapist think maybe I’m not so much bipolar as someone who is affected by my environment to an extreme degree. I have been doing so much better since I went back to work that they feel that this alone should help me get back into a more steady mindset. So far, it has done just that.
And a few more paychecks coming in should improve our financial situation drastically. We are well pleased.
Lola is really doing well in daycare, so I think everyone is benefitting from this arrangement.
I love my babies and my man. They are my world and I’m so glad that everyone seems to be doing well in this situation.
This was supposed to be a quick update but turned out longer than I thought.
I have to go…I have limited time online and I need to check on all my buddies.
