It's December, and it's trying to snow.

So. The job is going well. I really like the people - my office mate is super nice, and my boss(es) are very personable, interesting, and easy to get along with. It's good to be employed again - though I'll be a bit more happy once I really get into working on things. I know, I know - it takes time. Don't worry, I'll be patient!!

Not feeling all that well today. Started this past Thursday I think, and it's building into a nasty cold thing...hopefully NOT any kind of a flu!! I didn't get a flu shot - never have in the past, and I went through a rather vicious flu back in June, so hopefully this is just a small 24-thingy....even though it's been more than 24 hours.

I've been able to keep up to date with my family since the funeral - that's one thing that's been a good outcome. Brother S and I have really started to firm up a friendship. It's really nice. And keeping track of my nephews via blogs and such has been way cool. I'm proud of S. and K. - they're really doing well for having not had the easiest of times over the past few years. And C. is gonna be a dad again! That'll be the SECOND grand-nephew/niece for me!! I feel old. But it's cool.

Oh! And I'm getting another tattoo!! In about 2 weeks I'll be getting a small tattoo on my left wrist - a ginkgo leaf - in remembrance of my dad. I'll post a picture!

So...not too much else...I'll be starting up Voice Over lessons sometime after the New Year - been told I have a lot of potential, and it'd be a super way to make extra money....which ties into:

OH! #2 - I've made a vow. I am going to be debt free (barring unforeseen circumstances, and not counting mortgages) by my 50th birthday. That's not TOO far away, so I've got a definite challenge, but I think with focus and determination I can do this. Hence the 2nd way to make income. I'll keep ya up to date.
