New Year's Resolutions!

Well, another year has come and gone so fast I feel like I can't remember most of it. I remember my step-dad dying, moving into our new house, and my best friend moving, and the birth of my new nephew...and a few other first time things that will make me remember this year for the rest of my life-but what about the little things?? I can't seem to remember the little things....maybe that's why I take so many pictures! lol
So every year I make a resolution, and don't stick to it...this year, I am going to. To better myself for my son.
My resolutions this year are:
*Stop Cussing
*Control My Temper Better
*Lose Weight

The Losing weight thing is going to be hard...We can't afford for me to go on any program, and because most of my friends won't do it with me, I lose the desire, and eventually just quit and end up wasting the money. So my plan is to change my eating habits, and walk on the treadmill every least, but not limited to one mile. We'll see how that goes. I'm tired of taking pictures will all my friends and being the plump one. I look like a freakin' giant next to everyone.

I cuss entirely too much, and I don't really know how it got this bad. But it needs to look forward to me making up new words like "shafooey", and "fufroo froo".

My temper towards other people is somewhat ok, but towards Thomas, it's ridiculous. I take things out on him that I shouldn't, and it causes alot of uneeded stress for him, and myself.
He let's me stay home with Miles, he works 3 jobs to make us get by, and I should really chill out and be I feel like this one is the most important, and this is the one that I'm going to try my hardest to keep.

Usually Thomas and I don't go out for New Year's-even before Miles was born...we just never did. And now that Miles is here, the last thing I want to do is go to a party, and then leave while everyone is drinking and driving, and jeopordize my life. So once again, we're chillin' at the house. A couple of friends are coming over, and we're going to have a fire, and probably play rock band...woo hoo.

Everyone be safe.

Possible Job?

I've been taking this class-it's a 12 week class, one day a week for a couple of hours, and it's FREE (paid for by a grant from the State). It's to become a Lactation Peer Counselor. We have already finished 3 classes and have 9 more to go. But last night at class the teacher announced (to the 2 of us that showed, there are only 3 of us in the class) that a full time position for a peer counselor has opened up at the Health Department, and that we could go ahead and apply, even with out finishing the class- I AM SO EXCITED! I am going to apply for this job, and hopefully I'll get it.
It's funny, as we go through the different things that peer counselors do and say, I realize, that I am already a peer counselor to my friends, and I'm just not getting paid for it!
As soon as I started breast feeding, and felt that feeling of pure...well, I can't explain the feeling you get when you look down and see your child surviving off of you, the bond you feel, the feeling you get in your stomach when you look down at your child and they look up and make eye contact with you and smile as they are nursing..It's one of the best feelings in the world.-anyway, I got distracted there-sorry. But, I knew as soon as I started breast feeding, that I wanted to get involved in helping other mothers feel the same way, to educate them on the benefits, and myths of breast feeding. My goal in taking these classes was to have a job opportunity, and now I have one, and really really hope I get it!
I looked on line for the application (because our teacher told us it was there) but can't find I will call her later...but I just wanted to share the possible good news, and ask you to wish me luck!

Blah Blah BLOG

Well, I always have so much to say, as most of you know. My friend Joy started this blogging thing, and I signed up for it, and I just love reading it. It's like your/her own diary to the world! So, after reading a few of hers, I decided to start my own.
Let me go ahead and warn at your own risk!
