My Next Venture
Well, I've straightened out my job problems. I have three part time jobs and so my income is sufficient for now. One problem solved. I started school and got through the first semester of full time and can now go part time, probably one or maybe two classes at the time. This way I can actually enjoy it as it won't be so stressful. Two problems solved. Though it still needs some more work, my house is totally functional and I can continue to make progress on it, especially since I now have a decent income. Three problems solved.
My next venture is to work on my body. I need to loose some of the weight I have gained from being depressed over all the other problems I had. Before I start worrying too much about the weight though, I have to quit smoking because I will probably gain weight anyway as I quit. However, by quitting smoking, I will have the energy to do the "work" necessary to loose the weight. So the two really need to go hand and hand. This will be a really big thing for me because I have smoked for forty years. Yes, you read that right, forty years. It is more a part of my life than anything else there is. I can give you way more reasons for me to continue smoking than I can give you for me to quit. But I won't. I really feel like I am at a turning point in life that I can actually do it and be successful.
So, I made an appointment for this afternoon to go and get a prescription for Chantix. I did this a couple of years ago and it worked great. I quit for about six weeks and then I let life get me down and gradually started back. I am very excited about this. I have been waiting for my income tax check to come so I could afford the doctor's appointment and the Chantix. My check came Friday, so this is the first thing on my list to do with this money.
