New Year's Resolutions

I don't do them. I don't believe in them. Besides, Ninety-Two Percent of New Year's Resolutions Won't Be Kept. "Forty-five percent fail by the end of January".

Why set yourself up for almost guaranteed failure?

While I don't do New Year's Resolutions, I do work on things I feel I need to work on throughout the year.

Beginning in July of 2008 I began working on my temper. It's one of those things that needed lots of work, but I am proud to say that since beginning working on it none of the new friends I made in the last year has ever seen my temper, though I have seen theirs many times. I consider my work a success.

Beginning in February of last year I began working on weight loss and I continue to do so. Since I have gone down 5 sizes since then I consider my work a success, but I continue to work on it every day. Another weigh in today. I lost 15.4 pounds since my last doctor visit in mid October. Not bad considering Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays! That brings my total weight loss since February to 75.4 pounds!

Throughout the last year I have been working on getting a job. This is a 7 day a week, every hour of my waking day job. I have had a few interviews, but I have yet to have a job offer. This is something that I will continue to work on until I find that elusive job.

NYE party was a bust. I ended up going home early not feeling well and watching Dick Clark and the local Chicago show with Janet Davies. Drunk again. She doesn't disappoint. Lol!

I got the refrigerator yesterday. It cost me a whole lot more than initially planned. I had to rent a u-haul truck. A friend helped me out with that. Thank you so much!!! And thank you so much to my neighbor dudes who took out the old one and brought in the new one. They rock! And thank you to the scavenger dude who picked up my old refrigerator from the curb this morning at 10am. Now my house doesn't look so trailer trash. Lol!

I had some drama this weekend but it finally resolved itself. It was rough though for awhile. In a good place now though. :)

Da Bears are playing today. Go Bears!

Kids are home. Going to a Bears game watching party today. Daughter is back to school tomorrow. Son goes back next Monday. I hope to get a lot done while he is home.

Phone interview tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer that I can turn it into an in person interview. Thanks!
