I don't do change.
I like my life. Its easy and smooth sailing (most of the time.)
2009 has brought CHANGE. I did mean to capitalize the entire word, its that big. I need a 12 step program to get myself through all its going to take.
These are the basic rules I am going to need to follow-
*admitting that one cannot control one's addiction or compulsion; I have no problem admitting that I don't do change, I am working on the contentment phase-CHECK
*recognizing a greater power that can give strength; God has always been in my life and He isn't going anywhere now-CHECK
examining past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member); I am going to need a sponsor, I am going to sign up the Lawyer's Wife. She always has good advice and mint tea-CHECK
making amends for these errors; this is going to take work,
learning to live a new life with a new code of behavior; I have years to work on this one
helping others that suffer from the same addictions or compulsions. Give me a few years and I will be your sponsor
So are you wondering what is changing?
First, One of my favorite product lines is being pulled from the Southeast. This is very rare,usually they will switch to a different distributor, not drop an entire region of the country!
I now have to experiment with new product lines, find new favorites and then convince my clients that they love this new line more than the old one. HUGE!
Second, my assistant of 4 years has decided that the new commute she has is too far.(She recently moved way out into the country) I knew it would happen sooner or later with an hour commute, but damn this week? I have had to place ads, sort applications, interviews applicants, and now train a new assistant. Thank heavens the new girl wants to do everything perfectly, so that the transition is easier for me. Bless her heart! I won't miss the old ones family drama. You would die if I shared half of her crap. She has 6 kids+ their spouses+ 10 grandchildren= a lot of phone calls and drama. BTW, she is only 43. Yeah, drama.
Last but not least. In March, I had a procedure attempted (read this) to not have any more babies. One of my tubes is blocked and the other is very narrowed. God had other plans for me.
I got an elliptical machine for Christmas. I thought that my waist should have been getting smaller from working out, but it started to spread and my chest started to ache. It had to be the arm workout.
I even had a period this month, it was short, but still there.
My tubes don't work.
All the signs were there, but it had to be ectopic. My doctor convinced me that there was no way.
I took a test and like lightning it said POSITIVE!
I laughed, Paint boy laughed. We knew it was a miracle, but probably ectopic.
I went to the doctor on Monday morning. No exam room, straight to the ultrasound room.
Let me tell you when your doctor's response is, "OH My!" you know you are in trouble. The nurse said,"Oh my goodness, how old are your boys?" That would be 12 and 6.
Well people, Hairgirl is knocked up!
10 weeks pregnant. Not a little pregnant, almost through her first trimester.
We saw the little legs and arms wiggling, the little heart beating. A true miracle.
A BIG CHANGE!
Now all of you start praying for a girl.
