Forgive my absence

Hello Dear Readers - Please forgive my absence the last couple months, life has been crazy.

Since we last spoke I have really been trying to get myself in order.  I did booze free Januray, which has lead to me mostly not drinking anymore.  I joined a gym and it was the best decision I've made in a long time, I feel healthier than I have in years.  I also started cooking and experimenting a lot more.

So, the gym is basically my new home, I'm there 5-6 days a week and it's just a great atmosphere.  I didn't really join to lose weight, I just wanted to feel better, but since I joined on January 1 I've lost 26 pounds and I feel so good inside and out.

The gym isn't the only change I've made though, my cooking, which I always did, has gotten a lot healthier and I've started trying to cook new things.  I'm not trying to toot my own horn, but I am a freaking goddess in the kitchen.  I love it, I cook to relax now.

I have also accepted a position as a leader next year, so I'll be sticking around Spartanburg for another year, but I think it's a really good move for me both professionally and personally.  I'm excited for the next chapter, but I still have a few more months of this one.

One of the biggest reasons that I haven't been writing on this blog is that I've been doing a lot of fiction writing.  I'm pretty far into a novel that I've been working on since November, like 80 pages deep, and it's kind of consumed my life in the best possible way. I'm really hoping to have it finished by the summer and then I'm going to look into how to get things published (ahh, this is real life).

I've also been busy yelling at my computer about the current election cycle. I may write a post dedicated to my feelings about it, but for now I will leave you with this.

Dump Trump.

Thanks for reading, hopefully I'll be back soon.
