Contemplating my Future

Hi all! It's been ages since I've posted. I am trying to get used to being home all day. I've been plenty busy trying to get my unemployment in place. I've put in dozens of resumes, but no response yet. I am really trying to figure out what I want to do. Winter in Central Pennsylvania can be pretty gloomy. With everything so brown and leafless, you can almost see the cold. Today the sun was shining so I thought this is a good day to get back into the blogosphere.

This is the view from my back deck. I think we have the best piece of property in the whole town.

I've been keeping busy, baking and attempting to finish the baby blanket I've been working on for a year. My crocheting skills are lacking but I am determined to finish it!

I don't have a lot of pictures of myself because I'm still trying to work out that schedule. I do make sure I dress everyday and not get lazy and fall into the sweat suit trap. That is way too easy to do when you are not going out every day.

I am doing well with my spirits although not so well with my weight. Despite exercising and walking, being home is packing on the pounds. I am going to a Wii party with K tonight. We try to do this at least once a week to have some "fun" exercise.

I did indulge in a "job hunting" haircut.

Andrew gave up his "Flock of Seagulls" haircut for a job hunting cut too...

Of course, I still think he is lovely with his haircut...but I am his mother.

All in all, things have been pretty boring. Which is why I really did not post anything for a while.

The snow is so pretty but I get bored with it after a day or so, hats, gloves and sensible shoes are so limiting.
You look very elegant and pretty and well done on continuing to dress with style and effort. x
