Thinking Back…

Man, I can’t believe how fast this year went. This time last year, I wasn’t even sure if I would have a job and now I’m managing the pages and running the house all on my own. 🙂 I’m selling more books, got another in the works, and I am honestly still shocked my reviews are popular enough to keep getting more books sent to me. 😉

I’ve come pretty far this year; even when naysayers said I would never make it. Every moth gets a little better.

I look forward to even better things in the coming year! 😀

Eww, Monday.

I am currently disobeying the most sacred of office rules: Don’t come to work when you have a cold.

It’s not a BAD cold. The worst day was yesterday and I was still able to clean the house and do all the laundry. I can breathe through my nose, I am filled with medications, and I am swabbing everything I touch with alcohol. If I still feel awful tomorrow, I will keep my contagion home with me.

In the (hopefully) soon to be concluded saga of refinancing the mortgage on my effing house, I sign the papers today after work! 😀 YAY!! I’ve been at this for almost a year. Once these are signed, the estate will be clear, too. Two birds with one stone. Finally, the only legal matter I will have to deal with will be the separation papers; which is basically a “sign then leave office” sort of thing. Easy peasy.

A happy birthday to my friend MisfitLibrarian! I am almost concerned about what shenanigans she will get into today.

Happy Friday!

I indeed live and much better, thankfully. The self help books about ending relationships have been very helpful. It’s still a shock because I haven’t been single in 14 years. o_O But there’s significantly less screaming and more writing in my life now. 🙂

I’m also healing really well from the accident. Better than I expected! I still get a twinge when I turn my head but whiplash takes a bit to heal. That, sadly I know from experience.

Happily, I’m reading my little heart out, crocheting, and editing faster than I would have dreamed! I’m back in the library, even though we’re not open because the first floor is still being repaired, and it’s nice to get up and get out of the house every day. We’re doing as much community outreach as we can without a library to do it from. It’s a surreal experience.

I have to take this chance to give a shout-out to all my friends who’ve stuck with me while I have been going through all this mess. You guys are awesome! I don’t know what I would have done without you. *hugs you all*

2013 goals

I had to think a lot about what I wanted from this year. Instead of resolutions, I have goals I would like to meet:

1: To recover from my divorce and be a happier and better person.

2: To write 4 pages every day.

3: Update the blog more often.

4: I’m trying the 100 Books in a Year challenge again.

 

There’s no way I’m gonna let the bad things that have happened to me get me down. I have to remember it’s not my fault, these things happen, and to move on with my head high.

Here’s to a good 2013. It better be good; I think I’m owed. T_T

 

 

Obligatory End Of The Year Post

I have to say, this year sucked ass. Two of the people in my life who professed to care about me the  most lied to me and betrayed me; abandoning me and spreading very interesting lies behind my back. I’ve tried to be all zen and understanding about it but no. I can’t stand them and I can’t stand myself.

In my best moments I realize I am better off with these people out of my life because toxic relationships aren’t good for anyone. I have better friends who throughout all of this have been there for me. I pray every day to keep them and welcome new love into my life.

So, it is in that spirit that I give a resounding fuck you to 2012. Tonight I will try and focus on what I can do to make 2013 a better year for myself and for my daughter.

Buckle up, kids. Let’s do this shit.

Holiday Spruce Up Crave Box and News

This was a cute little box but I an’t use the dishwasher stuff. I don’t own a dishwasher. XD One day when I can afford to redo the kitchen, I will absolutely get one.

Now… On to why I haven’t been posting. Long story shot, I’m getting divorced and I’m dealing with the emotional fallout from that. You’d be surprised how such an emotional roller coaster it is so I haven’t been writing. So, in the last year or so, I’ve lost my Ma, my library, and my marriage. I’d like some freaking kudos for not being blackout drunk right now much less producing any creative work. But I’m getting there…
