A New Year--New Beginnings!!

I am a little late in posting for New Years. I have been pretty sick AND had to keep working, so I didn't have much energy for anything else. Flu season has hit fast, early and HARD! We have been seeing in the 120s most days! INSANE. We are ALL getting VERY burned out!

Today was the first day since Christmas that I actually felt HUMAN again. It was mild out so I went for a walk, which was nice. My cough only bothered me a little while walking, so hopefully I will be able to REALLY start exercising again soon. The thick green stuff I've been coughing up is slowing down. I work tomorrow but will be off Tuesday and Wednesday, so here's hoping I can start doing my DVDs again! That is REAL exercise!

I know this isn't a pivotal event, but I guess every New Year is a pivotal point. My resolutions this year involve the usual--losing weight, improving my finances, exercising more, getting organized at home. I have also added finding a charity to donate to AND volunteer with. I'm considering both Animal Friends and The Wounded Warrior Project. Those are two things near and dear to my heart--animals and veterans. My father had PTSD before it was a recognized diagnosis and he committed suicide because of it. If I can prevent another veteran from doing that, I would feel like I truly made a difference.

Well, it is late and I have to work tomorrow again, so good night. I will try to be more regular with my posts!!
