I read The happiness Project last year and have thought about implementing ways to be happier. I am waiting on my turn at the library to re read it to refreshen my memory. I remember enough of it to note what I want to work on starting March 1st. I have decided that these are the things that would truly make me happier and that they would require the most work on my part since these seem the most difficult to implement.
Follow Flylady to keep a clean apt. I am the worlds messiest person I dont know if I am lazy or what but the mess drives me nuts. Home is supposed to be all comfty and cozy not a place you want to escape.
Follow Weight Watchers to lose weight. I recently hit an all time high with my weight and that woke me up to the fact that being fat is not good for my health. I can blame me meds or different things but ultimately I am the one who puts food in my mouth. I have accepted this is a life long journey and to take it one day and one pound at a time.
I will do these two for the month of March and I will see how much progress I can make. Every month I will add stuff to work on.
In the words of everyone else I am back. There is a loong story of what happened to me and that will be in a friends only post. I am glad my lj is still here. I was afraid they would have deleted it and my 6 years worth of entries. Am looking forward to hearing from everyone again.
I am just about fed up with winter. It seems an age ago that the sun shone brightly and everything was green and alive. Now it is just cold and dead. It drags on and on and on. One more month til spring. Must keep going. I can do it.
well I got 500 dollars in the second stimulus check thingie. The government owes me after what they put me through to work with them. I am still trying to decide what to do with it.
Job hunting in this economy is depressing..
However the 500 dollars cheered me up.
I am hoping the library at least gives me an interview. I could see doing that for a couple years then maybe I will go to library school (grad program) with all the other bookish nerds and spent my life in quiet solitude with the occasional idiot that needs help finding a book. Books cant violate the ADA. Which suits me just fine.
The dr has told me I have seasonal affective disorder. I am feeling it. I cant even begin to say how much I hate winter. I never ever got depressed in Africa but here in the US the never ending winter drags on and on. I got put on some new drugs but what I really crave is nice hot weather with blue skies and margertitias and a good book. Not this crappy ice storm shit that been going on. I am so tempted to go to a tanning bed just for some UV rays. April can not get here fast enough. I need to move to the tropics then I wont be sitting in some therapist office saying nothing is wrong per se I am just having UV withdrawals. They are predicting another storm. God help me.
