YOU GUYS! We finished the 30 for 30 challenge! Okay, some of you finished sooner and some of you still have a few more outfits to go, but YAY!
Now I have no idea what to wear tomorrow.
But in even better news, my tax return came yesterday JUST in time for this challenge to be over so I can go shopping!!!
I'm kidding. I'm not really going shopping. Well...I am, but just for that new camera. And I have to pick out a full size tripod and I need to figure out what kind of laptop I'm going to get. Hopefully I can find all of these things on Amazon so that I can just place one order and be done with it. If anyone would like to email me some links to check out for tripods and laptops, I'd appreciate your suggestions! My email is aworkingmomscloset at gmail.com.
Today WILL be a good day. I'm going to make it a good day. For my new readers who aren't as familiar with my life in the past few months (hi new friends!!!), I'll just quickly fill you in by saying that since around September, life has been a little rough. My husband and I divorced in December, and today would have been our 10 year anniversary. We're still very good friends and in fact, he wrote on my Facebook wall this morning to tell me not to let it make me sad and that he's grateful for more than 10 years of our friendship. I feel the same way.
And today also marks two months since my friend Jamie passed away from Leukemia. Some of you may have been wondering why I wear the orange bracelet every single day, and it's because I simply can't take it off yet. It's a Leukemia Awareness bracelet that I got at Jamie's memorial service. I'm just not ready to take it off.
Okay - WHEW! I'm telling you this because I really just want to be honest about who and what I am. Sometimes life is hard. Sometimes things get depressing. But our reaction to events and situations can determine how everything plays out and whether or not we're essentially happy.
So today, I choose to be happy. I choose to be grateful that I knew Jamie for the short time that I did, that I had the honor and priviledge of being touched by her amazing faith and that I was able to visit with her a few more times before she died. I continue to be blessed by her through reading the blog her father has started since her passing.
