Autumn is already bringing about a lot of changes for me, and I'm excited about most of them, so I wanted to share with you guys.
1. My parents sold their house and are moving out in the next two weeks.
This is good because the house has been on the market for a while and it's really an anchor tying them back here when they're trying to move on.
They are also renovating the new house, which I love as it is already so I CAN'T WAIT to see the finished product.
2. Only 10 more pounds to lose until I no longer have to be on this health plan.
I plan to stay healthy and hopefully lose 20 more pounds after this next 10, but it'll be nice not to pay an extra $100 a month.
3. My brother and I found a new church... I think.
I don't usually like to make commitments like this until I know the people better, but this church is like an answer to prayer. It's 80% college students and college graduates, everyone is really nice and inclusive, and it's small and informal. Perfect for Gabe and I, who are both a bit antisocial and daunted by large groups of people.
Gabe also got a new place to stay out of it, which I am relieved about.
4. My sister got the lead of Sandy in the school production of Grease!
They usually don't give parts to new students (something about paying their dues), but she was so good they couldn't not give her the part.
Not a "change," per se, but I am so proud of her. My siblings were afraid they wouldn't fit in at their new school, but as far as I can tell, they're killing it. In a good way.
5. I was invited to my first Halloween party yesterday.
I am way more excited about this than I have any right to be, but it's a costume party and I'm so much more self confident and I think I'm going to go as Poison Ivy and I'm so happy about that. I don't think I'd pull of Ivy now, but given a month to prepare, I think I can work off those 10 pesky pounds and kill 2 birds with one stone.
I'm still terrified about CTNX, and am running on little to no energy by the end of the day, but I'm trying to stay positive. The future is interesting, if not bright. I'm looking forward to it.
How about you lovely watchers? Any plans for Halloween yet? Any cool changes in your lives? I'd love to hear about them!
