Remember me?

Hi Friends!

I sure was gone a long time, wasn't I? Right before my last post, I had a lovely birthday weekend with my dear friends, Sandra and Monica. We went down to Pismo Beach and it was awesome! When I find the photo card, I will share.

Right after my last post I started the worst job of my life! I only lasted there for a month, but it was so stressful and horrible! I ended up walking out which is something I've never done.

That was in mid November and then my full-time job became job hunting! Luckily, I've landed on my feet and I just started working in the Clubhouse of an active retirement community. I started Friday night and I already love it! It is the complete opposite of the very bad, no good, terrible job and it has restored my belief in humanity and good business practices. Whew! I needed that! So, I will be working at my old job on weekday mornings and then on the weekends I will be working three 8-hour shifts at the Clubhouse. And be able to pay my bills and mortgage! Yay!!!!

Some other big news: I am going to back to school in January! I am finally going to get my degree in the thing I have loved since junior high- Interior Design! I don't even care anymore about what my inner critic says- I am just doing this because I love it so much that I don't even care if I'm not good at it! LOL! Who knows? Maybe I am and maybe I'm not, but I'm going to get my AA for it no matter what. Just because I can't wait any longer! I already have the general ed taken care of so now I get to just jump into the fun stuff.

So, life is good. I am blessed and I know it. I wish for all of us a lovely holiday season and a super 2009!

Hi Bettsi,

I was wondering where you went too! Sounds like you have been very busy and crazy! Glad to see you are back and so excited for you to start your new life. You should call it "School of Dreams". 2009 is going to be a good year for everyone I believe!

Hi Bettsi, I have been absent of late as well. I am so pleased you have found a job you like and that you will be going back to school and most importantly that you are doing it for YOU!
