Let's have some coffee & catch up.....

I can't believe we are only a couple of days away from 2019 and everyone keeps asking if I'm ready. Ready for what???? The only thing I am ready for is all the blessing coming my way this next year.
Enough about the new year lets catch up on the last few months since I fell off the writing wagon once again.

October ended with a nice week long visit from my bestie. I wrote a whole post about it, I even had pictures!  And I accidentally deleted it and was so upset that I didn't re-post it. Nothing bothers me more than writing a whole long post only to lose it. I actually did it twice in October, which is why its taken me so long to decide to sit down and write again.
I also thought I had made a friend, a neighbor who I hung out with a couple of times. She's the come over we'll have coffee type. It seemed like we bonded over some issues we had in common. Then she started asking me to watch her kid for a few hours and I did. But then she started asking every Saturday night. Now I am the first to admit I don't have much of a social life but weekends are the only days I get to spend a few hours with Mikey due to our schedules. And lets not forget I work on weekends! I have to be up at 4 am. I am down to do you a favor once in a while but don't take advantage of my kindness. This misconception people have of us work from home people pisses me off. Just because I work from home doesn't mean I lay around all day. I work! My job isn't physically demanding but its draining mentally. And on slow days I probably do more that the average person. I clean my house,do laundry,  prep and or cook lunch and/ or dinner. And she's never once offered to pay me. Which was not the issue by the way but she didn't even offer.  I am so over trying to make new friends at my age, it just seems like everyone is about what you can do for them. Bitch please, I ain't got time for those games.

November also ended with a huge surprise. On Thanksgiving I called my mom after dinner. Dinner was again this year just me and Mikey his family is still tripping with there un-vitation. You don't invite someone you really want to have over the day before. This year his response was the best "absolutely not!" So I made a small dinner for two with all the fixings. I am learning though I did not make a whole bird, this year I made a stuffed turkey breast. I even baked a couple of mini pumpkin and apple pies." Anyhow during our conversation my mom asked me what I had cooked, so I told her and she says oh that sounds good! Save me a plate I will come over tomorrow." I laughed and said "yeah okay mom, I will be waiting" Mind you she lives in Texas currently. So continued on saying "I am serious I will be there tomorrow, I am on my way"  This time she sounded serious and I began crying like a baby. I was happy. She didn't stay with me but I got to spend a few days with her and she even went to dinner with me and Mikey. I couldn't have asked for a better way to end the year.

December was emotionally difficult and I had to make some tough choices for my own sanity. It's a process and I learning to let go a little bit at a time.
Anyway we decided to have a small Christmas, we only exchanged pj's and one gift each. We decided our goal of moving into a house next year is more important than going nuts on the holidays. Again we had dinner for two, his family went out of town. We got our un-vitation a few days before, and only because Mikey's brother had a medical emergency and we had to see them at the hospital.
Enough of that non-sense I am over that! A few days ago I got the news that my new temp position is not permanent!! There aren't enough words to describe how grateful I am!! I love my new position, no more dealing with crazy customers! Thank you Jesus!
For new years eve its going to be the usual just the two of us drinks and a charcuterie board. Dinner has not been decided yet, I am trying to talk Mikey into having my famous street tacos!

As far as new years resolutions those are being finalized and posted tomorrow ;)
