Thank you, Dee.

I’m in.

I’m committed to just being who I am (within the bounds of basic courtesy).

Thanks as always Dee

I'm in and off to my Wilderness First Responder Certification course

All well and good, but it's 7 degrees F and below zero windchill,
so weather could be a bit better
but we don't choose these things . . .

Thanks Dee!

Thursday already, Christmas already seems like history as I took the decorations down at Saoutchik Towers last night.

My bathroom scales seem to vary a lot so I went to the chemist recently to weigh myself accurately. It is not a disaster but I have put on a few pounds/kilos which will have to go. Slow and steady will do.

LOL...I used to be extremely overweight....the scales became my nemesis.
So I vowed to never own a set again....instead I have skinny pants. If they fit I'm good, if not....move it baby move it.

Morning lovely people. ♥

Truth!

I can do anything I want to do with my life.

Or

I can drink.

But I can't do both.

In!
Who I want to be... That's a good question. Still just working on being ok with myself and who I am right now. I have vague ideas about who I want to be going forward, but it's hard to form a real image of the future me. I'll just stick to getting through the days doing the next right thing, for now.

I'll be super busy this weekend with my college class - I am working toward finally getting the undergrad degree I never quite finished - started in 1981. I think I need about 5-6 classes to finish - one at a time for now. The class I'm taking now is an online class, a whole semester crammed into 3 and a half weeks. Yikes! A challenging way to jump back in after all these years. I'm already behind - learning how to time manage work, home stuff, personal care, and school again. I'll figure it out.

Wow MLD, and hello love.
Good on you....try not to stress too much: I know you can do this.
Bet you ace the class.

PS Time management is my hardest thing....and I have so much new stuff in my life to fit in and work around....it is challenging.
