I'm in Ohio. I normally get up at about 8am CST especially when I don't have to be at work until 10am. This morning, though, I got up with Eric. So, that would be 5am CST. I was tempted to go back to sleep, but it is much easier to sleep when he sleeps. So, I got up and did some homework. I found clothes in my mess of a suitcase to wear to my seminar today. I had time to kill; so, I bought a few albums for my iPod. Since I don't have to call Mom for a ride (my car is going to get new tires today) until 7:30am, I thought it might be a good time to blog some. I always wish that I had more time to do this. Life seems to catch up on me, and next thing you know, I'm behind the 8 ball. I don't even play pool. (lol)
So, I got to thinking.... 2009! Wow. Really? It seems like ten years ago I was a world away. The funny thing is that it seems I have come full circle on some things. Most of you know that Eric and I dated before. Well, ten years ago, that's what I was doing. I was working as a waitress, going to Sinclair and dating Eric. I hadn't joined the Navy yet, and I had just gotten my first tattoo the month before. I didn't have a driver's license, and I had this cute 1 bedroom apartment across the street from Cleveland Elementary. Life seemed so much simpler then. Though, I'm happier now then I have ever been. I am very lucky, and I know that. I have a good job, a great man and a life. I'm not in Iraq, and I'm not on the verge of losing my job. So, it can't be that bad, right? School is going well, and I should have my Associate's (FINALLY!!!) by the end of this year.
I don't normally make resolutions. It really is a great way to set yourself up to fail, but I do want to live better this year. I want to get healthy, and I want to be proud of who I am and what I do. (Not that I'm not proud currently...) I'm just cleaning out the cobwebs so to speak.
So, that's it for now. I'm going to start getting dressed. I desperately need coffee already, and I'm wondering if I should take socks to knit to the seminar in case we get a long lunch.
