Stuck in time & I am an END GIRL!!!

My blog freezes... I'm not techy enough to know why or how to fix the problem. Other than that, everything is good. No news is good news. All of the back to back family activities ended painlessly. We had a group family picture session for my husbands side of the family... and NSV... I was an END GIRL! For those of you who have not been subjected to large family portraits, they put the smaller people on the ends. Granted it was a matter of perspective that I was smaller, and I'm aware that I'm still a chubber- but I left the session feeling amazing about not having to be hidden in the middle.

Progress with the dream job is slow, but still moving forward. Why are large corporations like this? They call me, and then are in no hurry. I'm not in a rush per se, but I am the kind of person who likes to jump in and get the ball moving. Anyway, I've been a lot less conservative in my work attire since I've lost weight. I want to have fun with clothes and shopping! But, I think I need to go back to very conservative. I'm having a difficult time finding a suit cut that I like. Actually and surprisingly, I've found slacks that I like quite easily, but blazers have been more of a challenge. Probably because of the time of the year, too. Anyway, any tips would be appreciated.

Weight is... steady. I am so so so grateful. And it is very convenient to be the same size on the top and bottom. Who gets that? I do! Size 12 makes me happy. Not obese, I can eat and drink, but maintain a weight that doesn't look sloppy. Well, I guess I can still pull off sloppy, but I can also fix up ok if I want to...

My grandma went home to hospice at my parents house. Still trying to figure out when I'll be in Maryland. I'm horrible, but I'm trying to coordinate interviews before she passes away. Hopefully I won't regret that. My boss told me to get out of my head and go with my heart. You all know what a challenge that is for me. But, I also feel like I'll know when the time is right. If I have to make a choice, I think I want to see her while she's still alive. I'm her oldest grandchild, and she and I spent so much time together. This is tearing me up inside.

I'm going to end here, and see if my blog is unfrozen and if I can catch up on some blog reading. Have a great weekend- I plan on it. I'm going to lay out in my yellow polka dot bikini and drink cold moscato while I supervise the lawn work. Tell me it doesn't get any better than that? I whine alot, but I've got it pretty good.
