Evening everyone! :0)
BEWARE..this is a little vent :0) Well, it turned out to not be so little! LOL
We homeschool so that's our first priority. Our son is a great student and is doing very well. :0)
My son is a HUGE help around the homestead. He's a really great kid and is very willing to help out with any projects that we are into. He's really interested in horses and may have the opportunity the summer to work at a Ranch just a few miles from the house. He's so excited!
I clean house for several friends and neighbors for extra income. It's been great! It's really flexible. BUT.....I'll be cutting back on the house cleaning. Actually taking off half of the houses that I currently do. The house cleaning jobs have been a blessing! We have been able to pay off several bills but I feel like it's served it's purpose.
I just feel like I need to be here at home more. I miss keeping the house neat and tidy...MY house is the worst when it comes time to clean!!! I enjoy cooking and baking and keeping things in order and that's not been what's going on. I know we eat healthier when I'm here more and can prepare proper meals. I've stretched myself out too far and my family and I are the ones paying for it.
Dear Hubby works weird hours so I try to handle all the outside yard work so that when he is off we can work on other projects or even get away for a bit. I enjoy yard work and keeping the flower beds. I especially like mowing grass...I know I'm nuts! LOL It's just that it's so peaceful...just me, the mower, and my thoughts.
I'm a person who doesn't like to "quit" anything. It makes me feel like I've failed so this next step of acutally telling folks that I can't clean for them anymore will be hard for me.
I just have to remember that I'm doing what is best for MY family and myself.
I've started working out again at the gym at the fire station. It feels good to be back at it. KellyGa's an inspiration to me! Going to stick with it! :0) I want to loose about 40 pounds...20 of which I gained back after going on a cruise! Back on the teadmill for me :0)
Thanks to everyone for letting me bend their ears. Just needed to "hear" myself think.
Love to everyone especially on this Valentine's Day! :0* Hug and Kiss
