Countdown to RED RAIDER FOOTBALL

Thursday, January 31

What a start to 2008!

My mom gave me a daily calendar in my stocking based on "The Secret." All I know of "The Secret" is my daily calendar, but I think there is a book out there, too.

My reading today ends with. . "Begin right now to shout to the universe 'Life is easy! Life is so good! All good things come to me!" And they have!!!!!!!!!!!

January started out pretty hard for me. Paul had Patrick the first week and I was still on vacation from Tech, so I had plenty of time to be lonely. But that was also the week I got my gym membership. January 9 sucked because the divorce was final. January 10 sucked because it would have been our 4 year anniversary. But The Vice Chancellor kept shouting at the Universe. I guess my shouting paid off, because this week has been STELLAR. . . EXCEPTIONAL. . . WHAT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR. . .I got a promotion and a raise!!!! There really is something to be said about being truly validated by the people you work with and for. Not to mention the new 12-passenger van I ordered for my department came in today and we had a super secret surprise party for it unveiling.

And. . . as far as January's totals go. . . I hope I can continue on at this pace
20.71 hours
89.07 miles (I was at 50 miles in Dec)
10,033 calories
HELLO BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES!

I hope that you, my friends and loved ones, are shouting at the Universe, too. And praying to God. And believing in His Almighty Will.
