About Me

I am a mom of two and after following a few other bloggers realized that I needed to better myself. So, here I am ready to take those steps necessary to be a better mom, wife, and person, with each of you following my progress. I want people to know that you can be the kind of mom you want and that anyone can do it!! I hope that you can learn, laugh, and grow with me.

Making the hard decisions.

First I would like to mention that I am currently writing this while waiting for my class to start tonight. That's how dedicated I am to this blog. Well, I started it in class but staying up late to get it finished!

Next I have to give just a little update on my goal of waking up early. Day one was a success but I am still having a hard time going to sleep. See the full post next Tuesday on how I did.

Now..on to the good stuff. Starting in just a few weeks I will be back to only one job (my favorite job) taking care of two of the most amazing blessings I have ever received!! After much consideration, praying, and crying we have decided that I will continue to be a stay at home mom. Believe me when I saw I cried...you can ask my co worker. Shocked yet? There were many factors that brought this decision up but the main one was the fact that I was hardly NEVER home. My children didn't know who I was any more. This was not the way that God intended for my children to be raised. For those that may be reading this that have to work I am not talking about you! We are in the situation where I did not HAVE to work but was just trying to supplement the income so that things were not tight. What I learned was that we needed to be tighter.

Sometimes you just have to weigh your options; we did and this was the result. My children were the ones that were being shuffled around from grandparents to sitter to who ever was available to watch them. I felt like they needed more stability. I'm not saying that my situation was so much worse then others. I am sure that there are people out there that do what I am doing everyday, we just can't be that family. Between my school and work and Mr. Wonderful going to school and working the kids were getting left behind.

So, we have a big change coming up in the next few weeks. I know that it will be rough at first but we will be a better family for being true to what we need and what God wants for our life.

God Bless

Hit and Miss

So the other day in my Last Chance post I should have mentioned that I may still be a little hit and miss for the next couple of weeks. There are days when I simply do not have the time no matter what I do. Yesterday I worked then went straight to school. Once home I had school work to complete then went straight to bed! The good news is that these are the days that are the most challenging for me but also bring the most change.

The one thing that I still struggle daily with but would like to get under control is the time that I get up every morning. To make this happen I will make myself go to bed each night by 11. No matter what I am doing at that time I must put it down and go to bed. There is , however, one exception to this rule: if my little monsters angels ones are still awake obviously they cannot be left unattended! Doing this to myself means that I MUST have some time management in my day. Since these two things go hand in hand I will be working on them for the next week. When I give you an update on Tuesday you will see just how dedicated I am to turning everything around.

On a side note, stay close this week. I have some very exciting news and updates!

Last chance!

Ok..as you have or haven't noticed I am horrible at keeping up with my blog. This is something that I have always wanted to do but given the chance I let it slide to the bottom of the list. I could give you all kinds of excuses like; I started a new job, and that school is overwhelming (even though I am making A's!) but that's still not good enough.

Luckily I am a firm believer in second, third, and fourth chances! Therefore I have given myself this third and final chance to get it right. If I cannot prioritize my time to give at least and hour a day to my blog then I will not continue to write.

So please bare with me one more time. I promise to make it worth your while. I have so many things going on and so many ideas up my sleeve.
