Letter To My Future Self....

In celebration of her 300th follower, Kristin is having a blogfest today.  It requires you to write a letter to your future self.  If you didn't sign up, hop on over and get to it.  Here's mine.

Dear Heather of the Future:

Four weeks ago, I did something that I hope I will not regret.  I walked away from my full time job.  In case you don't remember, it was making me into a person I no longer recognized.  My fun, carefree self had disappeared.  She's back now, and I could not be happier.  Tugboat is thrilled that I/we are home together every single day.  He's also happy to see me smile again.  I did this so you could enjoy the rest of your life.  So that you could see that there is still hope outside of the toxic cubicle walls you were trapped inside of.  So that you could learn how great life really is.

I hope you are enjoying the healthy body I am working so hard to create for you, and I'm so sorry that it wasn't ready sooner.  Remember, if it's man-made, it's probably bad for you...

I can't know for sure how it's going to turn out, but I'm still working hard to make you a mommy.  It's been a long road but we are going to give it a few more tries.  Hopefully, you're reading this with a doe-eyed Tug Jr. in your lap. 

I'm trying very hard to write these stories in my head.  I can't promise you that they'll ever amount to anything, but I can promise you that I'm trying.  I also hope you are enjoying that degree and the sense of accomplishment it provides.  I bet you never thought you'd major in English did you?

Well, I have to run! I never thought that being unemployed would be keeping me so BUSY!..

Hope you're enjoying life, chica.  I sure am!

That's two O's in Goose, boys....

My blog subject today has absolutely no relevance, but since yesterday (or one of the last few days) was the 25th anniversary of the release of TOP GUN, I had to do something in honor of the occasion.  It is and always will be my favorite movie. 

Finally!  Blogger works!  I've tried several times to blog over the last week and every time I wasn't able to.   Thanks for sticking around.  I'm adjusting still to my new housewifery.  Yes, I'm pretty sure that's not a word.  No, I don't care.

To be honest, part of the issue is that I was stuck in a cubicle for the last 6 years, and I just haven't really been on the computer much.  I haven't been thinking of writing much -- I've been trying to rearrange and figure out how we will survive on one income.  So far, so good.  Just less shiny for me.

Overall, I am happy.  Happier than I think I have ever been in my whole life.  I see my husband more and I can finally figure out what I want to do with my life.  I do have a couple of great stories bouncing around in my head, but I can't find the words yet.  I hope when things settle, they will come.

So, what's going on with you, my peeps?  I'm starting to catch up with reading and commenting, but have I missed anything fabulous?  Listening to any new music? Seen any good movies?  Which reminds me, I saw Fast Five this weekend.  If you like this type of movie, it's really a good one.  Don't forget there are hot boys in it.  OH, and stay for the credits.

Maverick out.

A New Life...

Yes, I have a new life. It's a lot like my old one, except in this life, I am now unemployed.  Don't cry for me, Argentina.  The truth is I chose to be unemployed.  I came back from my trip, got sick, but finally went back to work. After just a few short days of complete asshattery, I decided I was done.  I told the folks at the ol' toxic waste dump exactly what they could do with their "job".  Ok, so I didn't work at a dump.  It was actually a nice office, but for the size of my company just the most unprofessional and unorganized place you could imagine.   Of course, after the high of quitting died, the panic of no job arose.  We ran some numbers and lo and behold, we can survive just fine off of Tugboat's income.  "Stay home" he said.  So I am.  I am officially a housewife.  Yippee!!  I'm finally freeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Except this nasty double ear infection that I picked up during my travels is keeping me from truly enjoying my new found freedom.  It's hard to be free when all you can do is sleep.  I can't wait for the fog to lift so I can get back to writing, blogging, and doing all the things around my house that I've always wanted to do!!  I may end up taking up something part time to have some fun money later on.  Maybe a bookstore...

So, I'd like to thank y'all for sticking around.  I'll be catching up with your blogs shortly...I've definitely missed you!  Have a great weekend!
