Update on life

Its been over eight months since I last updated this blog. A lot has happened during the past eight months. On the personal front, I am now almost nine months pregnant with your second child, a little girl named Cat. Our daughter Grace is two and a half and although she can be a challenge at times, she is a very happy and bright little girl who wants to go to school really bad and can't wait for her baby sister to be born. My husband is almost done with his certificate in computers and will soon start work on his bachelor's degree.

On the school front, I am finally ABD and only have to finish my dissertation, which is currently on hold till after the birth of the baby and the death my doctoral adviser. I will definitely finish but I will need to reconfigure my committee and request an extension for more time to finish. I am confident that I will finish and eventually land a job in my field.

Getting healthy..physically speaking

The first area of my life that I am working on in the getting healthy department is physically. My goal is to do 30 minutes of exercise a day, even if its just walking for 30 minutes. Since New Years Day, I have done 30 minutes everyday. The real test will be tomorrow when I start back to work after having 4 days off. I will keep you posted on the progress.

New Year

Instead of making New Year's resolutions that I never keep, I have decided to do something a little bit different. While talking to a customer at work yesterday, the customer told me about how her friend picks a word or phrase to live by for that entire year such as peace, friendship, excitement, etc.. So I have decided to use "healthy" as my word to live by for 2010. I will update everyone on my progress as I go throughout this year. Happy New Year.
