It's been a while. I am still working on me! Are you workign on you?

Hey guys!
I want to really start working better on my blog.  I am hoping to find some really cool things to share!
Today was a struggle bus as I had a chat with Sullivan's teacher.  We are getting ready for kindergarten.  It is not for the faint of heart! I want him to be successful, but he does have part of me and part of Martin in him, which is molding him into a really balanced half creative/wild, half stubborn and quiet little person!!! anyways, I had a Dr.  appointment myself today and shared my struggles, and my NP today shared with me this amazing podcast to listen to.  I really like it so far, but wanted to share, especially to my fellow boy moms!!!!
I am going to try it out, and I am starting with this episode, but so far so good! (Said the man falling from the 10 story building at floor 5 !! (:   ).
Here it is!

ANYWAYS! Have a great day!!
Share your joy!!

momlife...the hustle is real.

I realize I haven't posted in a while.  So much is going on, that I don't even journal anymore. Sometimes it feels like I am so busy, I miss things. Big things that are big to me. I am tired today, I just got home from an evening shift and then had to go get party things for my FOUR YEAR OLD's Dinosaur/Starwars Party. Yes, I said that right. Both. Why can't you have both at 4? LOL.
I am sitting here eating my Jenny Craig meal that makes me shudder. I want a steak.   I am making progress, but as with any diet, it is NO FUN.  This one is easy, because the food is ready for you, no thought required... Need that in my life in several situations right now.
Well, planning our 10th wedding anniversary coming up, Father's Day, Vacation, My kiddo's bday, work, end of the year school stuff, swimming lessons, a boarder in our home (again), and just Mom life, is HARD! :) Worth it, but hard!
small update...Goodnight!

Well, its Wednesday, I have today and 2 more days during this work week, and then Saturday and Sunday to relax, revitalize, cleanse our home and my life before hitting the reset button.



I am super excited about starting my new job.  I am hopeful that the Lord has provided this opportunity to allow me to make a difference in someone's life.  I pray for new opportunities to serve for his Glory, and allow my talents to be used to glorify him. I know this is going to be a game changer for us, and although it was an emotional decision, I am glad to have closed the door on my last job, and am ready for this new adventure.
Make it a good day!

Treasures untold...

So, mom had a box of "leftovers" from Mama's house that no one wanted. Of course, I did. I just opened it to see what was in the box. So many beautiful treasures in the box! One by one, as I pulled them out, they reminded me of my smiling, care-free, don't care who's watching Mama Bonnie. I will enjoy all of your treasures, and display them proudly in my home.
Love,
Nikki
