A lot has happened since my last post.  So many changes, for the better.  So many things in fact that I am just overcome with excitement.  I took a new position at work, which I love.  I'm on support staff now, which means I'm aid to the new director.  I love it and I love her.  Cheryl has given me such a great opportunity and I am so excited about working with her.  She is helping me with my director certification as well so maybe some day I can run my own facility, or just stay where I am and continue working with her, an option to which I'm not opposed.

As you know, I've been working really hard to lose weight and this weekend I hit the 30 lb. loss mark.  I'm so excited about this.  I never saw myself as fat until I look back at my pics and see it.  I was pretty chunky.  I'm very proud of this achievement.  I want to stay healthy and skinny.  I still have 7 lbs. before I reach my goal but I'm happy with how far I've come.  I have been a bit lazy these couple weeks but I'm still being careful with calorie intake.  I do NOT want those 30 lbs. back.

Finally, we have adopted kittens.  For a week, we had kittens trapped in our attic and we couldn't get them out.  Two kittens (we named them Atticus and Shadow) finally made their way out and into our pantry and we couldn't get rid of them.  They are the sweetest, cutest, little kittens.  However, it is like having babies again.  These kittens are still unweaned and we have no idea where momma is so we are taking care of them the best we can.  We have to bottle feed them, keep them warm, teach them to use the litter box, and give them lots of love.  This is a big deal for us because we are not pet people and we swore we would not have anymore babies after Nathanael.  Well now we are pet people and pretty much have babies too.  I love these little guys and I hope we can keep them healthy and safe for a long time.

Changes are good, they have definitely made me rethink my life.  I feel like a different person now with a new job, new kittens, and a skinnier self.  I love the road I'm on and I know it will lead me to great things.
