Every Holiday Needs A Little Fun In The Sun!

9 Jul

I did get a little play time this holiday weekend. You know when you have this:

this:

and this:

with two other family members that love to read, relax, and blog.. it’s going to be a good time!

We did get to catch up and talk about what was going on with each of us but sometimes a stay at home mom could use some peace and quiet in the pool with people who understand her 😉

Hope everyone else had a fantastic relaxing weekend as well!

 

Love Always,

Daily Life: Monday oh Monday

18 Jul

Today was my first day back to work since my kidney madness and it flew by so fast!!! The girls have been wonderful and P is more playful than I have ever seen her (probably because she can now walk to wherever her little heart pleases). I also managed to get started on a maroon scarf while the girls were napping. But halfway through nap time my fingers were getting sore so I took a break and did some online shopping!! I haven’t done this since forever!!! When I decided to become a stay at home mom I gave up all my rights to window shop and spend hours browsing online for things I might not ever get. Thanks to amazing budgeting and my craft plans working out wonderfully I now have a little to spend each paycheck on ME! On me? YES ON ME!!!

So today I sat on Kohl’s website for about an hour. I haven’t gone shopping for me in quite sometime and it usually ends up being at Plato’s Closet or a thrift store so this was way too much fun. Here’s somethings I’ve picked out that I might just buy next paycheck:

It is what it is..

So today I have come to the realization that it won’t be long until my dream life is partially over. As much fun as it has been and as much as I love it, I am probably not going to be a stay at home mom for much longer. It’s something that B and I have been talking about lately and I knew it was going to happen eventually but I think it’s probably going to be sooner than later. It’s going to be a sad change to my life but that’s just how the world turns. So hopefully I will get some seriously awesome mommy time before I start part-time job searching!

Love Always,

J

Can anyone hear me?

27 Oct

Today was not at all how I planned it to be. I had made my lists and put them in order of importance and checked off one thing at a time. I was doing great and was feeling great until about 11:00. It’s funny how just a few things back to back can just throw off your day completely and before you know it it’s 4:00 and you haven’t gotten near what you had planned done. For those stay at home mom’s out there, today was one of those days where I wish I could have screamed, “JUST BECAUSE I AM A STAY AT HOME MOM DOESN’T MEAN I DON’T HAVE THINGS TO DO ALL DAY!” Although even if I had screamed, no one would have heard me or cared. Thank goodness for my mother-in-law who reminded me that B would be home any minute and that she was there to help if I needed her. Another thank goodness for my husband who came home and said, “Okay, what do you want me to do.” and did it. We got everything manageable done and the rest I’ll just have to push through this week.

Ready to get passed this hump of frustration so I can move on to the better things in life! Maybe I’ll go take a shower to collect my thoughts and feel refreshed 🙂
