I'm still working on this budgeting business and cleaning up my credit so that when we get ready to start house hunting we have no surprises. The fact that my student loans are so high and I'm not even done yet bums me out sometimes but then I realize it has to get done somehow so I'm just working through it.
I also want to try to change this wardrobe up a bit. I'm a classics and jeans kinda girl but very New York in that most things in my closet are black or grey and I think we're going to play with more colors and prints now, we'll see how that goes. I'm playing more and more in make up so that might help with all that ::you care::.
More and more friends are encouraging me to start dating and honestly after being with the same person for 7 years, I'm just not ready to jump back out there just yet. With all the news of men hurting babies lately I'm good on meeting new people right now, I'm just not there but who knows what the New Year will bring with it. If GOOD potential (more on this in a future post) shows up I'm not saying I'll duck it but I'm not out there hunting yet.
Raising Chunks solo has me kinda beat but I'm really loving it. It might sound selfish but being able to up and do things we like without running it past someone in a mood or teaching him new things in my own way without comments from a peanut gallery has been fun. Chunks really is a great kid and seeing how much he's taking in and his own little personality come out is great. We used to do Mommy & Me days and that kinda died down a little but we're changing that and heading back out to explore the town.
I would hope that in 2012 all the major drama with the Wasband will die down some I really don't want to be fighting and feeling like an idiot all year when I think "THIS IS WHAT I CHOSE???" It really is heartbreaking. If we can come to an at least friendly place that would be golden but a part of me wishes he would just disappear (juvenile I know) but positive thoughts and vibes and MUCH prayer. Wishing for the best here.
With the job, studying, and being Mommy and Daughter I've started to feel a little burnt out and If Mommy ain't happy... SO I've decided to just take a me day, I'll drop Chunks off to school and spend the day in a plush hotel suite SOLO! and just pamper myself a bit. Sleep is #1 but then a massage, a nice lunch/dinner (maybe with the girls), and then soak in a deep tub and RECHARGE! Just writing this is making me excited it's so necessary and it might become routine.
Mommy's A Business
Deep inside, past the science geek that I am on an everyday I really have CEO dreams. I've started the motions on one of the projects but because I needed a crash course in reality it took a pause but hopefully in the next few months it will be off the ground. Fingers Crossed.
I used to be really into Community Service and I'm seriously considering rejoining certain groups and even starting some of my own to help raise awareness of some of things that matter to me, especially Brooklyn based and doing what I can to help when I can. Chunks has to learn somehow, right.
Well that's all I've put together for now. Even with the divorce situation going on I have to say 2011 wasn't so bad and I'm really looking forward to 2012 and the new and better coming our way! To all of you who have stuck with me and my wayward blogging this year and all it's ups and downs I'm wishing you nothing but the best, happy, forward moving New Year with Dream Come True moments all year long.
HAPPY NEW YEAR LOVES!
