UPDATE already!!

LOL! I have had a blog entry saved for a good week now. I keep trying to finish it :)

So will just continue on with a new one.

Not too much is going on. I go back to work in just 5 short days. BOOOOO! I just can't believe how quickly the time has gone. It has been 4 months since I went out on disability and I have to say I have loved every minute of it! I can only wish I was able to stay home for good. Unfortunately, life isn't always that simple! BUT I am fortunate to have a good paying job and one that is very rewarding. It can be very challenging both physically, emotionally and mentally, but at the end of the night (or morning) if I know I have helped someone, I have done my job, right?

The kids are getting excited about Halloween!! The weatherman says it will be nice and mild so I am happy about that! Miss Ali has a Halloween parade at school. Can't wait! We are most likely going to my hometown to T&T! Jason has to work so it will just be me with the kiddies. We will be walking the town with my sister, my mom, my aunt and my cousin (and her son) so it will be tons of fun! Here they are in their costumes...

Charlotte is doing wonderfully. Growing like a weed! She is starting to be more cognizant of her little world! She LOVES her big sis' and brother. She just smiles so big when she sees them. I LOVE IT! It really just brightens my day! Chase still has his moments with her but we are working on that!

Weight-loss is very slow but steady. Hopefully, once I get back to work I can get a workout schedule going. I was suppose to get a gym membership this weekend but hubby worked nights the whole weekend sooo, I wasn't able to make it. I still intend to m ake my goal that I proposed oh so many months ago. I just need a little bit more time!

Recently, I have come to notice that I am a lot more negative then I use to be. Maybe I am setting myself up for disappointment by creating too many goals that can't be reached in the time frame I am allowing!? I need to start creating goals that are more realistic and giving myself the time I need to achieve them. Good things come to those who wait! That will be my motto from now on! I think I try to rush things and then I get discourage and then they all trickle down. SO, I am going to try to make it a point to be more positive about things. I need a mind makeover! And this is where I begin. Everyday, either it be here or on paper, I am going to write at least one positive thing about my day. Then, I am going to take something that I consider to be a negative and find the positive in it.

It is getting late, so I guess I am going to head to bed. I have been trying to stay up a little later at night to prime myself for the long nights I have ahead of me at work.

A gentle reminder:

Don't forget in an effort to conserve energy, most of the United States will be setting our clocks back to standard time this Sunday (instead of the last Sunday in October). I almost changed mine then remembered that this year was the start of the new schedule. ALSO, PLEASE do not forget to change and test the batteries in your smoke detectors!

Have a great week!

love the kids in costumes. so adorable. :)

good for you for seeing that you need to make a change and focus more on the positive. it can be easy to get caught up in the negativity. i grew up with a LOT of that so it takes a conscious effort to stay upbeat sometimes.

hugs. :)
