2012 was a very crazy year-especially the last quarter. There were some major challenges at work that were completely out of our control at store level. It was really rough for a long time. Stress levels were through the roof, and I even dreaded going to work sometimes! It got better after the first half of the year, though, thank God!
I trained all summer for the NYC Marathon, only to have it cancelled right after we checked into our hotel. Although we did make the best of the situation, it was still heartbreaking. We all worked really hard for that day, and it didn’t happen. Luckily, we will be attempting it again next year with our guaranteed entries into the race!
I am now single and living on my own in my own place. It’s a long story, and not appropriate to talk about on here, but I am happy. That is all I will say about that.
I’ve been waiting for everything to finalize to post this, but I’m tired of waiting. Lord only knows how backed up the courts must be for this whole process to have taken so long. It really doesn’t matter when the divorce is finalized, though, because I’ve already been on my own for almost 4 months. Everything in life happens for a reason. I don’t understand the half of why things happen. It’s frustrating. I do know, however, that God has a plan for me and it has to be good. I am not a patient person, and that is something I am working on. Progress, not perfection-thank God-is okay. I am more than blessed to have some really amazing people in my life that are there for me, and have been there for me through all of this. It’s been a rough road, but I am well on my way to recovery (at least I hope I am!)
My new place, however, is awesome! I am super excited to show all of you what I have done with it!
