It’s been beautiful weather the past few days so that reminds me of why I moved south years ago. It’s January and we had 76 degrees today. I finished up the projects I’ve been working on and close another chapter of small business consulting. I went over final training and hand the torch to the staff still there. It’s always tough to leave those I’ve become friends with through my work. Hopefully, I’ll get to enjoy a little of the sunshine we’re having now that I’ll have some free time. I’m thinking I may even go to the beach next week 🙂
My extended family is in town as they do every year at this time. Today is my father’s birthday which we still celebrate though he’s been gone for a few years now. It’s a great time of year for family to visit from Michigan. It’s cold up there right now so the sunshine came at a perfect time. The women definitely got some warm and sunny days to bask in this week. I’ll get to see my grandbaby and show her off too 🙂 It’s always a fun weekend when spending time with my family.
This week, I spent quite a bit of time on investigation paperwork and reports. Porn Valley is leveling out so I am concentrating on getting schoolwork done in between putting reports together. I am really doing what I do best right now and am learning so much more to help me go so much further with my work. I hope next week to get 2 more websites up and running. There is still so much to do to complete my empire lol.
Today, I gave Ze a bath and haircut. She was looking pretty scruffy and fleas were taking over. It’s been a terrible year for bugs in Florida. It’s been a very mild winter so they seem to be taking over. I hate bugs and spiders especially. So far, I’ve had 2 big ole wood spiders in my new house. I’m sure the neighbors heard my screams as I sprayed and swatted at them lol. Luckily my landlords include pest control. I have a new roommate moving in next week so I want those buggers all gone!!
Life is settling in rather well these days. I went to the MLK parade on Monday which was inspiring. It was so nice to see all the kids there celebrating having big dreams. I took Ze so we both got a ton of exercise. I think we walked about 4 miles that day. I’ve been doing aerobics and dance lately so I’ve lost about 20 lbs. and am back to my old self like before I had my heart attack. Getting to drop some heart meds by keeping myself very healthy is one of my goals. I’ve already gotten rid of one so I’m on the right track 🙂
I can’t believe we’re almost at the end of January. My horoscope said next week is going to be a good one for me. As 2012 officially gets underway, it promises to be an exciting year for me!!
