My blood sugar is still high today at 130, but I did really well yesterday with my diet. I stayed on track all day, and as long as I can do this each day I should see better results soon. I am pretty much done with stressing out over this situation and have decided that most of the problem is that I am still not back to work yet.
It has been almost 8 weeks since I worked last and it is getting very stressful. As a retired law enforcement professional I have chosen to work in the field of security. I am very good at it as it is just a fraction of what I did as a cop and of course it only pays a fraction of what I earned back then. But still it is a place to go each day where I can supplement my retirement income and mix with people each day. Every two years I have to renew my security license with the State, and being that I work armed it takes a little longer to process the application. This year I was working in a temporary position outside of the employment of the security company I worked for during the time that I should have been going through the required training period to renew my license. My license expired during this time period and I had to start from square one. So here I am still waiting.
For many people this situation would bring about the opportunity to relax and enjoy the time off. For me it is just frustrating. If I were completely retired like I will be one day I don’t think that I would be as frustrated, but I still have another 12 years to work before I am at that point. For right now each paycheck that I earn goes towards paying down debt and even thought the only debt I have right now is my mortgage, it still is one of the tool I use to get me to my goal.
On the other hand I have gotten quite a bit done around the house, spent some good quality time in nature, did some reading and worked towards my minimalist goals. So I guess that overall I have made some progress in area’s of my life besides finances and I have been able to get things done that normally I wouldn’t have the time for. I know that if it were a little later in the season I would be working on my gardens, but there will be plenty of weekends coming up where I will have time for that.
