I see I'm getting to blogging one a week now. How times have changed. Happy to say I'm busier now and that I don't have time to blog. While there are many times during the week that something comes up that I would normally blog about has gotten pushed aside to do work. It's something I'm grateful for since I'm meeting my weekly goals that I've set for myself. Still stuck in a 30 day cycle, but I'm stretching myself as best as I can to get to a 6 month and then 1 year list of goals. My true goal is a 5 year plan, but since I've been formally writing my goals down again only 2-3 weeks now I'm not expecting miracles.
The Comic and I are still doing wonderfully. Our ability to talk through any situation that has come up between us has been our best quality. I did talk to her this week about cutting back our dining out since it's busting my budget. It was a big thing for me since bringing something up like this in my past always meant problems. However it went over well and we set about shopping together so we can cook together when we see each other. I knew ahead of time that it would be no problem, yet it caused all kinds of anxiety. It will take many times of this happening in a positive manner for me to have the faith that it will all work out.
My birthday last week turned out great and I really enjoyed my presents from the Comic who has helped me pick up my long lost hobby of modeling and painting. Once the New Year passes I'll pick up some paints to start painting the figures that she bought me.
The holidays are in full swing for us. We will be stopping at her mom's tomorrow to decorate the house. She helped me decorate my room last weekend and it looks great. All my presents are bought and wrapped. I'll mail out Eric's stuff Monday so I can avoid most of the holiday rush.
The funny thing on gift giving is that the Comic wanted this nice ring she had seen. I told her I would get it for her for Valentine's day. It arrived yesterday. I've bought a lot o jewelry over the years especially having worked in the jewelry industry. This is the second ring I've ever bought. The first was my ex's engagement ring. So holding this one brought up some feelings. Nothing bad though.
At present I'm happy to see my life improving faster than it has in a while. Having the Comic in my life has helped me want to achieve more which is something big for me. I've never been able to find many things to inspire me to shoot for higher goals on a consistent basis. It's been nice and a bit scary to be focused and wanting better for myself. It's been about 3 months and counting now. I've got traction under my feet and with that I can achieve a lot.
