Is it Monday yet?

My honey is away on a trip for the weekend leaving me to tend to the needs of our small children. Now, I feel I’ve become pretty comfortable with having to deal with temper tantrums, spilled messes, the constant drone of crying.. Been there, done that. Got it. Good. Move on.

This morning has been the disaster of all mornings. Being awake for only 2 hours has led to the events of but not limiting to; broken eggs in the fridge and on kitchen floor, spilled milk, unsuccessful potty training event leading to disgusting diaper all over floor, complete emotional meltdown of oldest (almost 3), writing on floor, meltdown over toys, crying baby, fussy baby, currently hiccuping baby, tired toddler.

Ahhhh, life and it’s many blessings every time he’s away for the weekend. ha ha ha!
;)

I’m going to try another attempt at yoga with my toddler once little fussy baby is finally asleep. We’ll see how that goes.

COMING SOON: Project Mellow Mama

Hello Hello! My newest project for this blog is coming very, very soon. I’m just finishing out the kinks and typos and getting it ready to unveil. I’m really excited about this one. As not only is it going to help me, but it’ll greatly help other moms. So stay posted. This is going to be fun. I just need to make some labels to help promote as well as get all the goodies together for a big giveaway. I also have a Halloween giveaway I need to get ready as well. Good things planned. Be sure to check back soon or subscribe to my feeds. :)

Namaste,

I’m so happy, so happy as can be-hee

74011531 My life has just gotten wonderful. I am on a high perched cloud in a gorgeous blue sky taking in the breeze of inspiration and happiness. I am so excited!

I landed a new job. Nearly full time, still with benefits. And it’s with children! I get to go to 1st grade everyday and help instill confidence and basic learning skills. I get to go to recess everyday! And music class.. Oh! I’m just elated! Sure, some days won’t be easy, but that’s the foundation of a job! The perks far outweigh the old job by far.. not to mention including the factor of less stress. I would far rather deal with a misbehaving 1st grade student than an overtired, over-medicated grown up. My job duties will now range from helping teach basic math and reading and art instead of being yelled at by a confused patient or an overbooked doctor.

Yet I am slightly sad. An era of my life is done; a long awaited change has finally come. And in its place a rewarding career that gives me extra time to focus on my children, my other talents, and my life. No more late nights. Dinner will be ready when it should be. No more stressed out, sleepless nights. Already this school system has shown appreciative gratitude at my joining their team. I feel welcomed and blessed. I know I’m going to be great with those students. And the staff I interviewed with also saw that so I feel great! I feel so happy and joyful. Let this new life begin! 2 weeks until I start. And lots to do to get organized. But now, my attitude is lighter, happier. The countdown is no longer dreadful. Which is the ultimate reason that I know I made the right choice.

Off to begin the workings of a cleaned, organized house.
I have my oldest at daycare today and my baby has now settled down to nap. Who knew chores could be so wonderful with such a big smile on your face?!

My list for this afternoon:
1. finish kitchen.
2. laundry
3. organize clothes in basement & bring up work clothes for organizing into bedroom closet.
4. cook dinner.
5. work on writing.

This is the best day of a new beginning. :)

Namaste,

nearly one month..

57359532
I am completely in awe that my little baby is nearly a month old. 2 days away. It makes me feel slightly frazzled because I am not looking forward to returning to work whatsoever. That place makes me an insomniac.

So the search begins soon for a new position. I’ve done a little bit of research, but haven’t had much motivation to really dive deep into the job search because I also want to enjoy my time with my little man. And properly adjust to Mom of 2 before I start adding in extra stress. But I’m excited. For a new start. A new beginning.

Ideally, it’d be nice to work at home, but the leads I’m receiving and the research being conducted has turned up very little legitimate jobs that don’t scream scam to me. I mean, seriously, why would I pay someone to hire me? So silly.

I’ve got some great new recipes I need to post. One for a fabulous fruit pizza. And the other for some delicious cupcakes, with a good story behind both. And I’m almost finished with updating the domain. I’m excited. For all sorts of good things.

I just need to keep dreaming about piles of cash. Because opportunity is going to be knocking. Keep positive, mama. Keep positive.

Namaste & Be Well.

A possibly unsent letter..

88052762
Dear Past Self,

At home, I am Mom. And I love that I am Mom, but…

I have another identity, too. I’m just not sure who or where she is. But I’m positive she exists because I once was her.

Needless to say, I miss you, Past Self… I do. And it’s not that the things I miss most are part of the ‘single’ aspect of the past. No, I’m definitely happy with children and my man. My little family.

No, I miss having time for my projects…
and yoga/exercising…
and writing…

I really miss a lot of that. I crave to fill, to satisfy that creative itch’s impulse. I so desperately want to give in, and yet there’s this other life that demands more attention, more nurturing, more everything. And though to many that, in itself, would be fulfilling; I need more.

What do I have to do to get you back?

Question:
Are there other mothers out there that are struggling like I am?
How do you make time for the things that make you happy?
What can be suggested to other struggling moms?

Quite the adventure..

74011531

Well. The first group of our company has departed as of this morning, leaving two relatives left. The house is far quieter now, and quite enjoyable really.. Though the amount of housework that needs to be done is a little intimidating. Why is it that I clean this house from top to bottom, only to do it again immediately after the house is empty? Hmmmn.. Perhaps I shall go on strike. For a couple hours until I can’t handle the mess anymore. ;)

I’m starting to research laptops. Any suggestions as to what your favorite brand or model is would be deliciously appreciated. We have a desktop computer, but it’s just time now to toss a laptop into the mix as well. Ideally, it’d be nice to have two, but it’s not really necessary.. I would just love to have my honey and I have our own seperately so that I don’t strangle him if something happens to any writings I will have saved on the laptop, but it’s useless to prepare for something that may not necessarily happen so.. for now, shopping and researching. What I’m finding so far is the astonishing battery power life and how vast a spectrum it has for so many different models. I mean, 2.5 hour battery life is not acceptable for me.. that’s barely a movie on a road trip.. Anywho, more on that later.

I’m also having troubles uploading my PDFs. This week sure isn’t starting off that wonderful..

And actually speaking of further problems, I’m having issues transferring this wordpress to my domain now. Anyone have any clue on how to do this? I thought I had it down and the whole process backfired, so I’m back at square one. *sigh* I want to upload my posts. Just the posts.. how do I do that?!

Later this week I’ll introduce my new format for this blog.. well, perhaps a deadline is not the grandest idea, since if I can’t transfer what I want to transfer I’m going to be pretty frustrated.. I hate the idea of starting all over again.. there has to be an easier way.. There has to be..

Shine on,
