I know I am getting better, but I still have a long way to go! This whole counting calories and exercising and tracking recipes is really going well. I have lost a few pounds, but, more importantly, I feel so much better! Plus, I am still very excited about my cookbook idea!
Work is also going much better. I feel less distracted and less irritated about the work itself and the people. Well, there is really only one person that has irritated me, but I'm dealing with it better than before. Every job I have had, it seems, there is someone that challenges my patience. I've been at this job just over a year now and I am finally coming to terms with the fact that I am in a much lower level position than my last job. Lessons in humility are never easy. Financially, it has been a real struggle, too. I know I have not fully let go of the resentment and anger I have had for my last boss, but my blood doesn't boil when I think about that place anymore. And I have visited my friends there a couple of times. That's healthy, I think. I have not come face to face with my old boss yet. That will probably take another year.


  1. I noticed your comment on Serendipitous that you had just begun have I!!! It took me a couple of weeks of pulling out my hair and a jillion questions posted on Blogger Help Forum, but finally I got it like I want it. To keep my recipes and photos from being on my general blog, I have an icon for each that pulls those up when clicked; a small slideshow that I can change out and when it's clicked it takes you to the Picasa Web album so you can view a larger slideshow. I'm having great fun with it and I'm sure you will as well. Good Luck to you!

  2. Thanks, Tillie. I want to set up some links like you are talking about, too. But I am doing a little at a time for now. I'm still working on getting some photos and illustrations up. I am having fun so far, though!
