I don’t know about you, but growing up in the 80′s netted some really cool trends. I had the big hair, the jelly bands, the jelly shoes, Hammer pants, black patent leather shoes, Michael Jackson gear, Madonna gloves, sunglasses that look like mini blinds and more. But nothing — and I mean NOTHING compares with that delicious Fiestada pizza that they used to serve at lunch –only on Wednesdays. Can I get an amen there?
Have you ever noticed that when mom gets sick the whole house falls apart? I really caught it yesterday when I woke up at 3 am with serious stomach pains. I thought I had eaten something that maybe didn’t agree with me, or that I had gotten food poisoning, but after a few hours and I started running a fever I realized that I was down with the stomach bug.
Isn’t it amazing how our whole houses fall apart when us moms get sick?
I am trying SO hard to lose weight and get healthy. For 2014, my goal is to really focus on ME and how I can get ME into shape again. For the last year, I have basically threw my own health and wellness to the side, but it is high time I take that back. It’s time I start feeling fabulous about ME again.
Here we are already into the second day of January and my one word for the year is on my mind. I have prayed and asked God what would He have me focus on this year and all I could feel being spoken to my heart was this one word –determination.
2013 was a great year for me. So many things happened to me that just really caused me to fall head over heels in love with writing and blogging. Here is a look back at my year.
I think this year has been the best year yet for our family at Christmas time. Our kids are older and I am finding that the older they get, the more I love blessing them with love and the things that they have asked for all year.
I am excited for what will be happening starting in December here on the blog. For some time I have just felt like I have lost myself and the focus on this blog. Hopefully I am going to be getting that back and my MOJO for writing is gonna return. I can’t wait to share with you all that will be happening.
Today I sit here at my computer and I just realize how hectic life has gotten for me. It is something that I never thought I would allow to happen, but it has. When life gets like this, all I can dream of doing is taking a step back.
Because of the hecticness of this lifestyle I am living, I crave for just drawing back and doing nothing — no social media, no computers, no television. Just me, my family, and the things I love to do like reading, crocheting, and cooking.
You may have noticed that I did not post anything over the last couple of days. The reason is that I was gone with my husband to check out Myrtle Beach Christian Retreat for our youth group. I had to take a moment from blogging this weekend to try coming up for air for once.
