Laundry: I have told the household that Saturday is the optimal day for me to do my laundry, but my cousin's daughter (the one with the baby) started laundry before I got a chance to do mine. I think from this point forward, even though it will cost money, I will be going to the laundromat to do mine. If a schedule cannot be adhered to, then I will simply take myself out of the equation. So I gathered up all my laundry and went to the laundry mat. I can use the time to read, blog and do what I want for a few hours.
Food: Generally, my cousin will have a plate for me when I get home. However, I have put so much weight on that it is really unhealthy. So, going forward, I will plan my own meals. There is fridge in the gararage and I can store my food there. There are some item that will be commonly shared, such as milk, coffee, bread, eggs, but other items, time for me to plan my own menus.
Exercise: I have been so lazy in this area, which attributes to my weight gain. I have a gym membership, I just have not used it like I should and I am wasting money. Honestly, I just need to get up early in the morning and go. Just do it. When I went, I felt much better. about myself.
Social Life: I really don't have one, but I did find a Book Club to join. And maybe I will find other groups to meet. I just need to get out there and don't be scared. There are some free things to do, and I should take advantage of it.
The one thing that I have been doing great on my own is my walk with God. I have been keeping up with my devotionals and being in the word. It has made my life much better. Much calmer. I can feel it in my everday life the changes occuring in my life. And I love it. It has even helped my relationship with my daughter, for which I am eternally grateful. Honestly, I think that this year, 2014 was the year that God brought chaos into my life and taught me to count on Him to guide me through it. And with this realization, 2015 looks to be a much better year. I look forward to it. And I thank God for His eternal love, mercy and grace.
