A diary of sorts...

I don't have a lot of readers. 

It's the truth. 

A fact of life. 

Why would I bother blogging? 


#1. I kinda like it. 
I am not really sure when it clicked in my head that blogging was no less enjoyable without readers. If I am honest I used to dislike checking stats and seeing that I had gotten less that 10 reads in a day, but now I am enjoying being creative without that undue pressure. I don't worry about how many times people read anything on here. I sure wish I'd come to this conclusion sooner. It would have been less pressure to write. I think that's ultimately why I stopped blogging all together for a while. Just burned myself out. Sad to think that because I started blogging in 2006 and even deleted all of my content in frustration at one point. *sigh* 

#2. Even if no one reads it I enjoy getting my thoughts out.
Truth be told I have needed an outlet for a little while. I find myself being a bit of a complainer and think that this blog is helping to reinforce some more positive approaches to my life. I am still unsure how much of my private life I will share, but that it more to my growing disdain for outlets like Facebook and the like. I'll get into all that later. It's WAY too heavy for this post. 

#3. Blogging affords me the opportunity to get creative.
Google images and meme generators are two of the FUNNEST resources the "interwebs" has blessed me with. I take ZERO credit for what I find of course, but how cool is it that I can always discover a new way to communicate a fun point with a picture or gif!

#4. Blogging has connected me to some people & advice that I absolutely adore!
I tend to be rather selective with the websites/blogs I invest myself in. Not because I have stringent standards or anything. I just don't have a whole lot of "sit down and read blogs" kinda time. I am always on the hunt for a blog I can get invested in. My current favorites are Nom Nom PaleoMy Train Of Thought. One is of course a lifestyle blog and the other is the blog of a friend/brother. Both are GREAT! You should check them out! 

YEP. I blog for simple reasons. It's been great. I don't really need readers. I am enjoying my "Diary of Sorts".

Anyway, that's this weeks post. Blessings to you! See you next Saturday.

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 …
