Gloomy weather in middle Georgia. January is slow, sluggish and disturbing. What did we do in January before Martin Luther King Day?

A trip once-a-month is just right for me.


Six years ago today…

I embarked on the best journey of my life because it was more than a journey, it was a move. I moved by myself in my Aztek to Macon, Georgia, which was a place I had lived before from the end of May 1996 to the end of March 2003. Those years were spent mainly as a single parent, changing jobs and residences in Macon but finally settling in south Macon, overcoming yet another divorce and landing at a library job which I held down for almost four years.
Now, here I was again, this time happily married and especially happy to be leaving the small town of Warsaw, Virginia where I had spent over six years trying to adjust to a place that was the hardest place I had ever lived and had felt isolated, even from my son.
Didn’t have any trouble driving away that day. Do not remember much except that my husband helped me pack the Aztek better and was able to take more of my possessions. He also left that day for one of his work trips.
I remember pulling up to the hotel before the sun went down that evening and I think I may have spent the night in North Carolina.
Never for a second have I regretted what I did that day and now I have a house that I love in the heart of downtown Macon which allows my husband and I to walk to many downtown activities. That day was life-changing! Happy anniversary to me! Macon is the only place I’ve ever returned to.

Watching a train wreck

It is interesting when people you know are making a drastic mistake and you fear for them but your warnings have fallen on deaf ears.  I suppose it gives one determination to be one’s authentic self and not follow a negative path.

This past week and a half has been the hardest time I’ve had since early January. I am doing my best to do everything I can without overstressing and it has been very difficult due to a weird unfortunate occurence and being without any family at this time. I am in a difficult position at work also. I pray that all people will be healed of physical and mental illnesses and that love will abound.

Still sick

I haven’t worked any this month. I don’t think I will tomorrow either.

However, I can’t say that I haven’t accomplished anything. I got a file cabinet that I need for my online class that I am behind on, I bought one new book, got it autographed along with two others and conversed with the author. I almost sat at a table right next to one famous author but I was intimidated.  I should not have been.

I am ready to make good things happen!
