2011 has been a year of changes for me. I realize we’re not very far in, but I’ve had a rollercoaster ride already! I didn’t set any resolutions and tried to set goals instead. Am I moving towards my goals? HMMM…good question. Professionally I would say yes. I got a promotion and going back to school for a few business courses so that I can be better at my job, and earn a professional childcare director certificate. I’ve increased enrollment at my center, but still have a way to go. So yes, I think things are on track professionally. (Especially if I learn to conquer my new version of word!)
Personally my goals are not quite within sight, but I’m confident I’ll get back on track! I want to do some things to my house, and I’m determined that even though I’ve said that for years, this is the year! I’d like to lose some weight, and It’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog. I had a blog written, but because I have a new computer with a new version of Word (that I’ve not a clue how to use) I lost the whole thing! I wish I knew how to get it back, but alas that’s a technical skill well above me! When I realized that the blog was lost I really wanted to bang my head against the computer and have a good old fashioned temper tantrum. Oh to be two again and have that be allowed! Oh well….onward and upward.
While I started great, I’ve slipped without a doubt! I did recently go to the Doctor and his scale had me down from the last visit, so that was again encouraging.
The biggest changes…
I’ve had to learn to get through my problems and my joys without my mom. I’ve been really proud of how I’ve handled that with few setbacks. Thankfully I have a wonderful sister who is willing to take mom’s place for my rants and my shots of glee. Even to the point of saying do you need money when I call to complain about something breaking down and what it’s going to cost! My answer (just like it was to mom) No, I don’t need money…just want to rant.
Soon the biggest change of all will be here. I’m expecting a grandchild, and if people are correct it’s a boy, and he should be here in the next week or so.
So as you see my rollercoaster of life has no plans on stopping soon. What about you? How is 2011 going for you? What has been the best thing or the worst thing?
