Transitioning

57359532 He’s finally here! July 30, 2009 7:58p weighing in at 7 lbs, 7 oz, my little Isaac made his entrance into the world. A full mop of brown hair and dimples on his cheeks and chin. Already a week old, he’s been a good baby. He’s a strong boy. And my first son, Owen, is so excited to be a big brother now. He just beams when he gets to talk about Baby Isaac. I think this is going to be the beginning of something incredible.

I’m so happy to finally be transitioning my life now. I’m away from my incredibly stressful job and it feels phenomenal. Now I just need to find a new job. Granted I will probably go back for a short time to that dreaded office, but I’ve never had a stronger drive to change my life right now. I need to go back to alternative healing. I can’t work for the healthcare system anymore. I just don’t agree with it. The things I’ve experienced and witnessed really bother me. And being treated as a pee-on instead of being respected is the final kicker for me. A lot of my coworkers feel the same, too. One’s already left and who knows how many will be gone when I return from leave. Ohhh how I dread that day.

But back to positive things. Happy things.
My projects are coming along nicely. My writing is beginning to flow freely again, something I am very thankful for. And I’m researching on the whole submitting and publishing. If anyone has any direction to some good inspirational writing sites, I’d love to check them out.

Company is coming next week. Slightly overwhelming as there will be 9 people in a small 2 bedroom home with one bathroom. But it’ll fly quick and I’ve already planned some escape routes/plans/errands so I think we’re good. 😉

I’m keeping close track of my mood swings and making sure to really pay attention this time around to PPD. I know I had it with Owen. And it was brutal, because I was entirely in denial. This time around. A lot of focus to prevent it from getting as bad as it did. Only one meltdown so far. So far, so good.

Now, first thing is first. Content is my number one priority for this site. It’s okay that I don’t have many readers or at least ones that comment. I have a hard time finding time to set aside to go and read and comment on blogs. But I’ll somehow factor that in to the ol’ schedule.. maybe an hour every weekend. Really, it’d just be nice to find some mamas to get to know and follow. That support group I’ve always hoped for but never really knew how to find.. Someday, right? 🙂

Okay, okay. Now I’m just getting completely off topic. Off to the batcave!

… I think I’ve officially lost it. 😉

Did I mention I’m excited to start my yoga again? Okay, okay.. I’m out of here. I swear!

Namaste & Be Well.

  1. Congrats on the new arrival. I remember that from your letter so I came looking for the post! 2 boys – that’s the way to do it. I’m happy with it, anyway.

    I always like hearing about why people chose certain names for their kids.. How did you pick Owen and Isaac?
