New Year, New Floors?

Sort of new floors.

Family recently discovered the other day, that the family room has wooden floors beneath the carpet.  So tonight they are cleaning up the floor from all the carpet ripping.

Yay new floors!

New Year, New Start?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I hope everyone's 2012 was at least passable (by that I mean a year that you had ups and downs that somehow managed to equal each other out).

So, over the last year, I've felt I've been hitting a proverbial wall. Career, romance, social..... you get the picture.

I've been wanting (and sort of needing) to find a Full-Time job. It's been a challenge. What ever I apply to, I never hear from or the pass me over for someone else (one of the perks of is you see what your status is) and I've been looking for about 3 years now. Mind you, it's been on again off again looking for work.....

I *really* just want something to land in my lap. But doesn't everyone? Right now, I really want to be able to work outdoors.  Yes, I *KNOW* that means working in REALLY cold and REALLY hot temperatures at time, but, I feel like that's where I should be right now. Working outdoors. I've applied to a couple Park Ranger positions, but with ALL the competition for those jobs, I realize it's a shot in the dark.  It is what it is.

I am hoping this year brings some romance into my life. Because, quite frankly, I need some. At this point, I do want to find "The One", but I am not holding my breath.

I am so ready to have my own place. So, so, so ready. My own place, quiet, no one else bothering me. SO MUCH ME TIME!!!!!  Family is annoying me. But that is to be expected????

This year, I want to be able to knit down my yarn stash and read 26 books. 1 book every two weeks is reasonable, I think.

Anyway, I'm rambling.
