February is hardly here, and it already is so super rad.
1. As of 1-February both Duggs and I saw promotions!
His was long-in-the-making (he won’t go out a Terminal Lance afterall, woohoo!)… and I saw an hours increase in my part-time writing job. So rad. What awesome blessings, we are so happy and grateful and glad!
2. I’m thisclose to getting my student loans consolidated.
This is so hardcore awesome, really. Student loans are both amazing and terrible, great when you’re riding high on ’em and awful when it’s time to repay the man. Luckily, I think I may be able to get in at a nice interest rate and bundle ’em all together. This is the month it can finally happen!
3. The January workout goal was MET and SURPASSED!
I won’t disclose the embarrassingly meager requirements of said goal. But hey, a goal is a goal, and meeting a goal is awesome. Goal goal goal. Did I say GOAL enough?
We did it! Eff yeah!
I’ve even lost a couple lbs in the process, which makes me happy.
4. Some things are coming together with our move.
No, we don’t have any details… we have NO CLUE what day or date we’ll be moving on. But, some of our more personal arrangements and what not are coming together nicely, including a good phone call I got today. I’m feeling confident, more ready, more okay with it.
5. It just rocks. It’s just awesome!
Life is just good. I’m happy and blessed and cheerful, optimistic. Ole Stinky Duggs is in good spirits too. We’re happy folks, by nature. November and December were some stressful times, lots of blah (like so serious blah ick no bueno). And January, the new year, just breathed some nice fresh life into things. New goals, new perspective – I have kinda pulled around the bend a bit with my health (which greatly affects our daily lives)… New job, new med routine, new workout – and things are just falling into place nicely.
6. Valentine’s Day Brings out the ROMANCE.
Nothings says romantic like, “oh hey I got you one of those weird hologram bracelets.” At least it does in our house. The Duggs finally caved into my incorrigible insistence that those bracelets are magical and make you awesome.
So here’s to being stretchier than ever. Heh. Interpret that as you will in light of the looming holiday de St. Valentine.
So, Happy February everyone!
For all of my gals and pals enduring deployment, the turning of the cal page is ALWAYS a big ole deal – one more month down!
It’s Leap Year, which is fun and weird… and it means a spring and summer of campaigns (which has me fired fired fired up already). And to readers and friends in general: Have Fabulous Fecking February!
As always, thanks for reading! xoxo, hhr
