It has been, a while…


It’s not like I have a lot of viewers or people banging on my e-mail door asking for a post. But I will go ahead and give myself an ultimatum because that is what I do. If you don’t put yourself in the corner occasionally, you become a naughty public menus. 

Okay. Where am I? I am in a coffee house with my laptop. First time ever blogging from a “trendy” spot. I am so cool. Well, not really but some people think I am. Am I suppose to be blogging? No. I am suppose to be working. Yes peeps, I have a job among my other duties as a mother raising my daughters which is the best job ever and is my main job still. There came a point where I knew, if I was to reach my goals, I needed to find another form on income. We are truly blessed and not hurting, but need to rethink the need verses want mentality that this generation has encountered. Both of my parents were born at or the end of the great depression. So, the thinking of my grand-parents was to not waste anything nor get rid of anything. I have a reminder of this downstairs in my garage and sun-room. It isn’t until now that I have been really okay with letting go of so many wonderful “collectibles”. E-bay is a great reminder why you should not hold onto Barbies with lopped of hair and beautician in training make up via Crayola. You should see my collection. Yikes. Vintage 1970’s with joints that move. Scary! Anyway. Next topic. 

So, like I was saying and got off topic like I usually do, I found a job doing insurance work from home. It pays well and is definitely challenging my brain. So, after waking at crack of dawn to prep the day with my sweet girls, once they are down for a nap or quiet alone time- I am working on E-mails and spreadsheets. Then, back to focusing on my girls development, and then the day is almost done, hubby home and back to working. Laundry and dishes get a smidge behind some days. But I try to keep it up and not leave to much for the hubs. It is a huge adjustment to keep up with it all and my brain is doing a huge reset after not working (using the other part of my brain very often) in corporate America since 2009. 

I am still back and forth about some avenues i’d like to take. We humans always fear failure or making a bad decision that could domino effect your entire world. It’s much easier to uproot when you are single. When you have small children and a career around your belt, you have a lot more anxiety because you have other mouths to feed other than your own. And diapers. Many diapers. I found that the things that I do have control with like organization and decorating help me feel accomplished in other areas I cannot fulfill yet. I hope to post what kind of organization, baking and decorating I have done. 

Thank you for reading my post. Enjoy the updated image of my two rain drop and dew drop playing.  

Have a happy, always blessed outlook life. And look at the clouds today. Or tomorrow. And find a fluffy sheep, prancing in a meadow. Or a turtle jumping over a dog. Whatever the clouds do, you find it. 

Right now I see a walrus skip roping. No, I am not on meds. You’d see it too…maybe.
