We will, we will, rock you

January 9, 2014

I gotcha!  That title has nothing to do with this post, I was just jamming out to it and thought, I should blog.

Sorry I have been so MIA.  I know a few of you contacted me asking for a blog….and by a few I mean my one good friend, Share Bear.  It has been a very lazy and crazy last few weeks.  As I posted before, I got a promotion that started on monday.  Lets just say, it was best for me to walk away from my last position, leaving me with three weeks off!!  I had plans of doing daily meetings, driving out to see the girl I sponsor, watching my nieces, and blogging the hell out of this site but when I woke up on monday after the three weeks, all I had accomplished was gaining 7 pounds and spending an obscene amount of money on food.  I am now with the majority of America on my third day of my diet.  It was a hard slap in the face on monday afternoon when I gave in to the weight gain and unzipped my pants a little bit for the rest of the day.  Not gonna lie, it felt good.

I was able to finish all of my knitting projects, get some of the stuff above done and ring in the new year in Arizona with my boyfriend.  I also have been very busy embracing this great new life that God granted me.  I got a cute apartment in the city I love.  The landlord is a 70-some year old woman from Jersey who’s jewelery weighs more than she does.  She talks fast and I love it.

My first meeting with said landlord at her home:

Landlord: No parties or anything, it’s a quiet complex.

Me: Oh, no worries.  I don’t drink.

Landlord:  Let’s not get crazy (huge ring on hand weighs it down and it smacks the table…or she smacked the table) you can have a few cocktails with the girls but no parties.  You one of those alcoholics?

Me: ummm yea, I have been sober for 3 years

Landlord: You like Whitney Houston? (I nod, yes) Man, I love Whitney Houston.  Don’t you just wish you could just shake her? (makes choking symbol) and tell her to stop with all those drugs? Man, I love Whitney Houston.  (In walks  another 70-something women from Jersey and landlords points) She hates Whitney Houston.  I play the Body Guard all day in the other room and always listen to her CD’s in the car.  Man, I wish she was still here.  Anyways, the deposit is $800.

Do you love her too now?

Between the christmas presents I haven’t found a spot for, my unpacked suitcase from Arizona, boxes for the move and me adjusting to working from home catching bad guys, my mind is chaos but I love it.  I know the boxes will get packed, moved and unpacked somehow and I will adjust to this new job.  I am just pinching myself because it all doesn’t seem real that it’s all happening.  How does a girl like me get to live this life?  I know I had nothing to do with it.  I am just trying to stay out of God’s way and let it unfold to his liking.  I’ll let you know how it rolls out.
