I have started heading in the right direction after my post about finding some things to help define myself and make me happy.
I have been looking at taking a class online, although I have found that aid may be an issue since I already have a degree. If I can't get any aid I will probably just save up a little money and take a class at the community college. I am not trying to get a degree, just looking to learn something new and stimulate my brain a little.
I made a dream list, a real one with a few big dreams that I usually wouldn't even allow myself to think about. This is actually a huge step for me.
I joined a playgroup for John and I. This may not seem like something that would help me, but I am actually really looking forward to it. I don't really have many real life friends and it can be very isolating being a stay at home mom. Since I don't go to church or work, there aren't a ton of opportunities to meet other people who are also stay at home moms. I know that this is going to give me an opportunity to come out of my shell, and a chance for John to interact with other kids so he doesn't turn out like me :)
I also applied to join a book club. I haven't heard back yet, but this is something I have been wanting to do FOREVER. As everyone knows, I am a big reader, but I don't have many people to discuss my books with. I am so excited to meet some people and really have a chance to dig into some books that I might not otherwise read.
I promise that this blog isn't going to become all about my self-improvement, but right now I am just very excited to start this new chapter in my life. I am really hoping that it is going to make me happier and more content.
On another note, did anyone else see that Lilith Fair got cancelled in Phoenix. I am so glad I got my Lady Gaga tickets instead. If I had missed out on Gaga I would have been pissed. As it was, I was not thrilled at the line up...the Go Go's and Miranda Lambert, BLAH. I love Sarah so much, but I could care less about the other acts. Anyway, I read that the show was cancelled because the Go Go's, specifically Belinda Carlisle, didn't want to play in AZ after the new immigration law was passed.
I really have mixed feeling about this. I am against this new law completely, but I feel like I am being punished for something that I didn't have a say in and that I don't support. I just wish people would realize that not all Arizonians are into discrimination.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a good Monday.
