Two thousand eleven...oh my.

Happy New Year to the friends I follow and the ones who follow me. I didn't like last year too much. With Timber leaving us, John's health in question, and my sadness regarding the above, was starting to take a toll on me.

This is a new year, a new beginning and many things learned.

We never got an answer on the cause of John's breathing problem, however, the best part of all the tests are that his lungs are strong and his heart is healthy. As healthy as it can be for a person with heart problems. With the possibility of allergies, he has decided to add to his exercise and diet. We know now that this cannot kill him, only slow him down.

My sadness was diminished with the new arrival, Austin. He is full of energy and was meant for us. When he saw us and we him, it was instant love. Even though he is a Catahoula Leopard mix and that breed is known to be tall, we decided it was destiny. The thing that made it so special was that John decided we needed a new spirit. It was he, who thought we could live without. What a Christmas gift Austin was. And that John saw my need and maybe even his and said yes to destiny.

Now the last subject is my job. Working part time, I know that I want to give them all I have. I started to feel responsible for things I knew were going wrong. That procedure was off and things could be better. I was bring work home, in my head that is, and often had dreams about it. This has to stop, and this is my new years resolution.

"Be a good worker and support person, don't expect that participation will make it better". "And be proud of the work I do".

There I said it. Now lets see how I do. Have a great year to everyone. Love to my family, thanks to my friends, your support was everything to me. To my Internet friends...I am back.

God Bless everyone
Carol

  3. So glad you are back.
    Yes, one of the hardest things I saw in my career was that I brought all the stress, worry, responsibility and all home with me at night like a ball and chain. It is not fair to do that as your family AND you suffers...but it takes a lot of determination to NOT do that too...bless you for trying and I am so glad you are back blogging!
