Feeling Groovy

Today I bit the bullet and went to the employment service. This is the same place that got me the job with the Fortune 500 company I used to work for. They had me do the paperwork, then take some computer tests to see if I am proficient in Word and Excel. If not they won't accept your application. I came through with flying colors. The lovely interviewer advised me to expect to be paid $4-$6 more an hour than I am currently being paid. I was elated. For the first time in many months I felt my self confidence surfacing. Remember the old Toyota commercial where the woman kicks up her feels and they say "Oh what a feeling". YES! My spirits soared at the thought of making a nice paycheck to meet all my needs and then some.
Perhaps for the first time in six years I might actually take a vacation. For our honeymoon we had ONE night away. I was having a shoulder problem and that night was with me pacing the floor in pain. Rob and I have taken some wonderful trips to New Hampshire where we stayed in a suite the size of a condo. I would like to go there again but more importantly, I want to take Rob to Ireland. Rob has NEVER flown. Picture me forcing alcohol and/or tranquilizers down his throat. He makes the frequent comment that he's not afraid to fly, but it's the crashing that worries him. I assure him, I was reluctant to take my first flight but my second flight was a lengthy ride to London. I love to fly. I love to travel. I love being able to do such things. It's been awhile but I am so ready to do it again.
Things are looking up. I know what I have to do and I have put the wheels in motion. There are many things in life that I cannot control. I accept that but I'm going to do all the things that I can to get things in order. I have a feeling that the best is yet to come. I don't know why I am so reluctant to face change because it usually has such positive results.
