Life is muy bueno !

Well it looks like I have a job.  It's with a home care agency.  I can still go to school and keep my hoarder lady and my house cleaning jobs.  I went to CPR and 1st aid class on Monday night.   I was going to get my TB test yesterday afternoon, and instead I fell asleep. Can you believe I fell asleep at around 4 pm and didn't wake up till 10??  Fell back asleep around 11pm and slept till after 5am.  My sleep is all crazy.  I don't think I have been getting good sleep, so I needed the extra sleep I guess. 

I was exhausted from taking my "listening" Spanish test.  I really hope I did better then I ever have.  I took my time ( I was the last one in the lab ) and I felt like I understood more then usual.  I have been practicing my oral presentation,so I hope that goes well.  I am finding that since the financial stress isn't hanging over my head, it's kind of fun.  Ok, fun probably isn't the right word.  I was still sweating like crazy during the test :)

I got on the scales yesterday morning and found that I was up again.  Due to waking up many times during the night I find that I am trying to eat myself back to sleep.  Stupid I know.  Any suggestions??  Walking has continued, so good for me.  I have been consistent in starting out my day with prayer and meditation.  That really helps. 

Hope everyone has a great day.  I am really grateful for the people in my real life that have supported me through this rough patch.  Namely, my BFF.  She really is my hero.  It's good to accountable to someone. 

Keep the mood and the food real.........................


  1. Here's what was suggested to me: The ABCs of gratitude, as in I am grateful for Apples. I am grateful for bicyles. I am grateful for Cxxxx, you get the picture....

    I am so happy that things are going well for you! Woo Hoo!

  2. ^^^ Roxie has a great idea^^^
    I wake up alot, and never get back to sleep till right before the alarm goes off.
    Glad things are going well for you!

  3. YIPPEE on the job!!!!

    The sleep, I'm a firm believer in our bodies sometimes just needing sleep. I'm glad you listened and didn't fight it!!!!

  4. I wake up a lot during the night but don't get out of bed unless it's to go to the bathroom. I like Roxie's idea. I just sucks, this non-sleeping thing that we women seem to fall prey to. :(

    So glad you got a job! Woohooooooo!!!!! Things are definitely looking up!

    Oh, and buena suerte on your espanol test!

  5. If I lie awake for more than half an hour I get up, make some herbal tea, have a no fat yogourt and read something incredibly boring. Knock me out pretty quick most times.


  6. Hi Dana! What great news on the job! You are doing so much, no wonder you needed all that sleep. I usually wake up to go potty, then I go right back to sleep. I do sleep better now when I make sure to get my walk in everyday.

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. It's always nice to see your sweet face :)

    Have a wonderful weekend!
