New Year and Resolution type things

Hello blog,

It's been a while.

Yes, it's taken me 16 days to get around to the "use the blog" resolution, but I'm sitting on my bed doing my best to get through an entire box of kleenex in one day, so it's as good a time as any.

What's on tap for this year?

A JOB. I have my license back and have been flinging my resume at any job that includes women's health, hoping one will stick. I have been asked back for round 2 of interviews for one (the only one that has actually asked me for a first interview), and that's scheduled for Wednesday.

I've been SAHM dressing for the past 13, almost 14, years. Meaning jeans and t shirts. Yoga pants. Velour sweats. FLANNEL PJ PANTS. Having to go out into the world to get a job means I have had to examine my clothing choices. And examining some of my clothing choices leads me to realize that I have been wearing the same things for at least 5 years, and usually 10 years. But SAHM = no income and no need to be fancy.

And really, this job will have me working in the functional equivalent of my pjs. #1 reason to be a nurse right there. Scrubs are awesome.

But the rest of the time? I need a new look. Like Bernadette on Big Bang Theory. She's adorable. I need a fashion adviser. That's my plan, and another resolution. So far I have 4.

1. Get a job.
2. Be more deliberate in my friendships - meaning take the time to connect and DO THINGS with my friends instead of just chatting on facebook.
3. Use the blog more.
4. Make a wardrobe that I actually like and will wear instead of spending all my time in loungewear. As I type this I'm wearing pink flannel pants and a Piggly Wiggly t shirt. I have a way to go.
