So long 2016!

And so, here we are...in the final hours of 2016.  A year filled with turmoil,

I originally typed "A year filled with turmoil and disappointment" but that's not totally true.

Sure, we have had some disappointment..ok quite a lot...but it is so easy to focus on the negative and forget the positives!

Hubster lost his job.  That sucked.  But he was absolutely miserable there anyway, so it was a bit of a blessing.  He took another job and was laid off again.  That sucked.  And it was a blow to his already bruised ego.  He has worked hard to find another job, but he's "old" in the corporate world and has been passed over many times by "youngsters" who cost much less than a seasoned employee like him.  A little bit of good news is that he will be starting a non-corporate job next week.  It won't pay nearly as much as his previous jobs, but hopefully, it will be enough to pay the bills and I truly think he will love it...and that's the most important part, in my opinion.

We lost my sweet Granny in February.  She was 95.  She lived a long life and she was able to meet all of my boys, but I miss her voice so much.

I quit my highly stressful corporate job in May and have since started working my dream job as a supply teaching assistant at a local Montessori School.  I make less money per hour than my two sons do, but I'm happy.  I'm genuinely happy. I start full-time online college courses on January 10th with a goal of completing my ECE diploma.I'm excited and terrified at the same time, but I truly believe it is my destiny.

I am huge.  Bigger than ever.  And that's going to change.  Starting January 2nd, I am going back to Wheat Belly.  Enough is enough.  I feel like a hoompa loompa and I hate looking at myself in the mirror.  Nothing fits, I struggle to walk most days and I feel like a 90 year old.  Time to get healthy again.

I have a couple of dear friends who are very sick with cancer. Young moms who don't deserve to be fighting this evil disease.  I pray that 2017 finds them both cured and healthy again.

2016 was a stressful and eventful year, but I have learned a lot from the hurdles we have had to navigate.  It could have been much, much worse, for we have our health and we have each other.  That's most important.

2017 will be another year of change...hopefully all for the good!  We move to our new house in June, so the first six months will be spent preparing.  We've done quite a bit, but we have much more to do.  One day at a time.

If anyone is still out there reading my blog, I wish you peace, prosperity and happiness for 2017. Pin It
