Trouble Shooting My Life

     Sometimes I look at my life like it's a program on a computer...you know sometimes it is running slow and sometimes it just up and crashes on you so you have to reboot it. An IT term for this is trouble shooting. So I have decided to take some time to trouble shoot my life...funny I know but I think it will be easier for me to decipher what I want to change and what I need to work on a little harder. There are some big decisions coming up in the future and I would like to get my life on track now so those decisions won't be so "Big" or so difficult.
     I look forward to Sunday every week. It is usually a day for me to unwind, go to church, and lay around the house or run errands, that is of course if I am not working. I have been able to go to church 3 Sundays in a row, and it has been very interesting listening to the sermon and examining myself and figuring out how everything that is being preached pertains to my life, my situation. It is so scary that I get lost in everything that is happening around me that I forget that this life I have been given is just a gift, and that all the things that occur are just apart of the journey to the next chapter.
     Let's talk about change for a second; I am not a fan of change and I spend ALOT of my time worrying about the littlest changes that I shouldn't even bat an eyelash over (sometimes I can't help it). I just need to learn to accept that change is good, and that I don't have control over what happens in my life, because it is not my life really. There are so many things going on in my head throughout the day that I tend to forget the reason I am really here...and I think that goes for most people. So, with all of this swishing around in my mind, I have decided to live my life a little different...here comes change.

  1. I need to start thinking more positive...I have this huge tendency to become slightly negative at times...no comment from the peanut gallery please
  2. Be less judgmental... I need to just worry about my own issues Lord knows I have enough
  3. Pray More
  4. Make sure that the people I love know that they are loved! I know that sounds so simple but I get so caught up in life that I tend to over look these simplicities.
  5. Eat better and exercise. Yeah, Yeah we all say this but I really need to make this come to life.
  6. Worry less about the little things! I need to just let things run it's course before I start having anxiety attacks over them
Let's just start with 5 and see how they go! Wish me luck; any sort of support would be accepted! Well I will definitely update about my progress, I am hoping that when they say "the first step is acknowledging the problem!" it's true!! I hope everyone has a great week and I will be blogging again soon! Thanks for letting me get on my "discovering myself" soap box!!!

The Stress is Catching Up

Alright to sum it up I have been closing pretty much every night (with a day off here and there) for the last month! It has gotten to the point where Liam only sees me for a few hours every day, so when he does spend that time with me he wants me to hold him. I worked really late last night and had a very difficult time falling asleep...Liam woke up at 5 am!!! He was screaming and screaming; of course he has about three teeth coming in at one time, but he usually sleeps until 8! He just wanted to be with me so we played on Mommy and Daddy's bed for about two hours and then put him back down to sleep. He slept for 37 mins and then woke up again...ugh! I made him his sippy cup of milk and put him back down and he slept until 9am! The joys of being a mommy! Lets just say I am looking forward to a day off to relax and play with Liam so his separation anxiety isn't so strong! Again I will say that being a working mom when all you want to do is spend all day everyday at home with your little one is very hard.

Have a great Thursday!!

That is my vent for the day!!!!!

Working Mommy

All of those working mommies out there will know where I am coming from, but I am having a difficult time with my situation! I am being super selfish and want only to spend my time with my little LiLi man!!! I have been closing ALOT lately so it has been even more difficult leaving him during his nap time and coming home and he is already in bed! But there is another problem I am having, I am so exhausted from the late nights at work, that the time I do have with my stinker all I want to do is sit down and relax!! I can not wait until the day that I can spend tons of time with Liam and still have the strength to get the house work and cooking done!!!

Well that is my vent, so I took some pictures of Liam playing in his room today and would love to share with you all!!

We had a great time with family at the outlets yesterday after church! I was able to stop into my favorite store, Kirklands, to pick up some new curtains for my bedroom...what do you think?


I am having a great time redecorating our apartment!! And I am making sure that all of it will be able to move with us! 

So Liam's two front teeth have finally cut through!! We are now able to say he has 3 teeth!! So exciting, it hasn't been fun the last couple of nights but it is nice that he is able to eat a few more things.

We have many more projects to accomplish and I will for sure keep you all updated on our progress...we have our washer/dryer stand that we are almost done creating and then next is our coffee ottoman table! ( kid friendly) Doing all of these DIY projects with Eric is really strengthening our relationship, and testing our patience lol!!

You all have a wonderful Monday!!

Long Time No Post

I wish I could be one of those bloggers that can blog everyday, but unfortunately I am having a difficulty budgeting my time between working 40+ hours a week and being a mommy. I will say that one of my goals is to get this under control so I can start to blog every day or at least a couple times a week. I am not going to sit here and type everything that has occurred between now and January 1st because it will take all day, but to sum it all up we couldn't be happier with the way our little man is growing up!!

Here is a pic of us at the zoo
for Liam's 1st Birthday!
Time sure does fly by; yesterday marked Liam's 14th month with us! He is officially a toddler and sure does act like it. He is at the stage now where he is testing our patience and seeing how much he can get away with. He has developed this whine when he wants something...he is so dramatic! But there are those moments that I just want to squeeze him because he is so sweet. When he wants you to read him a book he will bring the book to you, then turn around and back up into your lap and sit down and wait for you to read to him. Out of the blue he will turn to you and give you a hug or kiss. These are the things that melt a mommy's heart and I wouldn't change one thing in my life that led me to this beautiful little boy!! I hope all of you have a Terrific Thursday and I will be blogging again soon!

The Last Day of 2011

Good morning everyone! I can't believe that the year will be over tonight! This is crazy! 2011 just seems like a huge blur to me. Eric says it is because I was pregnant for most of it! HAHA! Well I do have to say that we have so much to be thankful for! Of course for our wonderful baby boy, Liam! We couldn't have asked for a better child, whom rarely cries or whines and is ALWAYS smiling! Every where we go we always get the comment, "He is the best baby I have ever seen!" That of course makes a momma proud! I am thankful for my little family...which I am hoping in the future will be expanding! I am thankful that both Eric and I have good jobs that do what they are supposed to do, pay the bills and provide for the family. We are thankful for our families, that go above and beyond for us, watch Liam, and shower him with love and gifts! I pray that 2012 can be just as great or even greater!

May everyone have a safe and FUN last day of 2011! And my God bless 2012 for all of us! Happy New Year my blogger friends may new and exciting things come your way!
