7 days without my cellphone!

I broke my phone guys.
I tripped trying to catch Allee as she ran away from me.
It's bad enough that when she runs from me I can't get her to come back, but adding insult to injury by way of a $200 phone repair is just cruel!
Thanks Universe! *sarcasm implied*
Anyway, I didn't realize how disconnected I would feel from people without my phone. 5 of my closest friends are typically contacted daily via text & snaps.
 3 of these friends don't even live in the state. Not being able to talk to them is awful. I miss them even more. My local friends hear from me when I see them at church, but now that is just once a week (if they come at all). If I am lucky it's twice. With everyone being sick however it's been 0. The contact with fellow moms is so important to me. I thrive on it. Now I feel like I am isolated. This of course doesn't include the friends that I am fortunate enough to see through the week. The NERDS luckily come over on Tuesdays for The Flash which helps. Granted, the show has taken a 3 week break, but we did have Nerd Night recently!
I suppose what I miss is the things that my friends and I talk about. We keep each other accountable to reading our Bibles and we are able to reach out to each other for prayer and advice. Now that my phone is out of commission I don't have that option.
I hope you don't think I am whining. I mean, honestly it doesn't matter I guess. I just look forward to being connected through the daily routine I have grown accustomed to.
Yes, not having a phone is strangely liberating because I don't feel the need for the internet all that much, but the cost is a bit higher than I prefer when it comes to feeling connected to my dear friends. Not having my camera at hand stinks too. There have been so many "Kodak Moments" that I have missed this week.
LOL. I digress.
Hoping you are blessed today.


  1. Isn't it amazing how much our social life is tied into those phones? It's hard to imagine that we could leave our home and not hear from anyone or that we had to pay through the nose to talk to people who didn't live close to us, etc.

    Sometimes, I secretly wish I could get rid of mine...

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 
I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.
I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area …
