Wow I should really change the Christmas theme I have going on right now.  Oops.

Christmas was good. I was trying to make sure my mom had a perfect Christmas that she could remember fondly, as well as my sister and dad. I want us to have good memories.  And it went really well until my brother sent a picture mail to my mom on Christmas day of him flipping her off. Kind of went downhill from there.

New years passed relatively uneventfully. Spent the evening at Justin's parents' house with his family and some friends.  Nice and quiet way to usher in 2009, which I've decided is going to be a) a fantastic year and b) a year of purposeful change.  Working on AA and NA and general treatment work with the kids at work, I've become very familiar with the idea that you can control only those things which are controlable and that you need to let go of the things you can not. So that's what I'm doing.

In the meantime, I'm absolutely loving my job. I've been there over a month now, and I wake up every day smiling. Even Tom has noted "I don't think I've ever seen you smile for no reason at all and you've been doing it a lot lately."  I'm working on myself a lot more, too.  I've actually committed myself to a 12 week workout program which I've been doing for about a week now.  I'm already noticing some results.  And I'm doing it for me, which is so much better.  Even my hair is growing back - no really!  I've also started dipping my toe back into church.

Also, some big news.  Tom has graciously accepted my proposal and agreed to marry me.  It won't be anytime soon, we're planning for after his graduation in 2011.  But uh, yeah...I guess I'm getting married.
