Happy New Year…

Standard

So New years has come again…. and of course I have not updated my blog in quite some time… it’s not that I don’t think of it; it’s just that I get distracted too easily…

Working at Jenny is going okay although I was hoping to be promoted again by now… I live in Marysville now with my neurotic dachshund named Moses… (I doubt I would have named him that… but honestly another name hasn’t crossed my mind… he seems to recognize his name any ways… but then again he an answers to ‘tard, pain-in-the-ass, and many more much more vulgar names that I really shouldn’t call a dog that was rescued from abuse…

I’m trying to train him as well… it’s gonna be long and hard… I am thinking that I will start him in obedience school when I get the chance… I can tell he wants to be a good dog… he just doesn’t know how in all situations… So long as I am around he is generally behaved…

As for resolutions and whatnot, I have a few…

First; I want to get fit again… better than last year…. I want to be able to pass a PFT by the end of the year… in that case if I go for the military again I can do it… According to my old recruiters I just need a few waivers and to be more fit to show some initiative and prevent repeat injuries. I do want to go… but I don;Ft know if I can give up my family/friends here long enough to do it… and now I have a dog to worry about too…

Along those same lines I want to start doing Yoga… SDI SSgt. Mosqueda was so passionate about it and how good it is for you that I’m gonna believe her. She taught me so much… about the world and myself… If only I could have just listened to her and trusted her… everything she told us was right… I wasn’t in any damn special circumstances… I should have known that… I mean sure my injuries cause some special circumstances… but not anything else beyond that. I’ve sent her letters to thank her… but who knows if she got them. She changed my life.

And more on with the body…. I want to get back down to 120 or less… I need to do something because I really let myself go in CA… I was so depressed… I just don’t know how I let him control my life for that long…

I’m also working on my knitting more… I got this knitting book called ‘Domiknitrix’ and it basically inspired me to get more serious about it and fix all my errors as they go… I can honestly say that it’s good… my knitting is steadily improving and I am very happy for it…

John (aka “Atli”) and I are still seeing each other… It’s kinda nice being in the same region for the most part now… because it takes less planning to get together… he’s still quiet as hell but I guess he will always be that way… There is just something about him and the way he is that makes certain seemingly small moments monumental… a long phone call while I was browsing in a craft store… resting his head on my shoulder for just a moment, when he has a toothy smile (not often enough) just sitting quietly together… not saying anything… and Swedish pancakes… always! lol

Life isn’t so bad… but I did see some interesting stuff on the freeway today… Boulders that had fallen onto the road that were bigger than I am tall… it was crazy… they just flattened the guard rail… I have never seen anything like it… and to see from where they fell so high up… I mean wow… Nature is one mighty force… and the flooding in Arlington is all the way to I-5… I’ve only seen it on TV and stuff… seeing it in real life less then 10 feet away and rising up and coming after you in something else….kinda scary…. I can say I have new respect for floods… they are something that scares me.

Back at Jenny Craig again….

Standard

So I haven’t been updating line I should have been lately….

That job I started was deplorable; they broke every labor law I can think of… so I left after the first day… Screw them.. I have too much self-respect for that…. (it’s a long story but I am over it already)

As soon as I notified the company that it wasn’t going to work out I go t calls for two interviews… (Seriously within two hours) One was a casual meet and greet thing up in Lynnwood, WA for Jenny Craig and the other was for Comcast in Puyallup… Still haven’t heard about the Comcast Job; and it is technically a better job; but we’ll see if that pulls through.

I did get hired back on with Jenny Craig however… so no I am not unemployed… which is wonderful… because I am sick of being a bum… so that works out for me quite well…

I finished that green blanket I was knitting for Roberta.. it is not a nice as I would have liked but I would have liked it to be a little better… oh well, next time… it is still nice… now I have started a scarf for Atli… I am happy about that.. and I finally have a Ravelry account… so I can post my projects on there which is awesome…

Roberta- We still need to meet up for coffee sometime.. but I am working out of Lynnwood so we will have to figure something out that works with both of our schedules… My Boss said that I should have most Fridays off… so maybe then??? I miss you!
