If you’ve been following my blog, you know I’ve been in a constant state of change. It should come as no surprise that, once again, my life is changing. It’s been a rough first quarter of 2016 but it can only go up from here. Here’s the skinny on what’s been going on lately…
Let’s see….where to begin. Ah…my oldest boy, who went to bootcamp, is now home due to a concussion. He wasn’t able to physically complete the program, which meant he wouldn’t have graduated if he stayed. He’s since been in a bus accident and suffered another concussion while playing basketball. That kid is always keeping things interesting!
We recently moved into a bigger place and I now have an actual office space! I’m so excited about that! I’m just waiting for Comcast to install my internet so I can officially set up shop. The move has been difficult because we’re both working full-time. We only have evenings and weekends to organize and put away and that’s been driving me crazy. Between the kids, the pets, the husband, and the boxes, there’s not a clear path anywhere!
My work has drastically changed in the past month and I’ve been working 12 hour days. It’s been rough because it’s not something I’m used to but I’m loving every minute of it. Now, if my office would magically get finished, that would be so great. 😉
My Filofax is also about to change…as soon as my ink arrives. I don’t understand Amazon. I have a prime account that I pay for, handsomely, and my “free two day shipping” on an order I placed yesterday is scheduled for delivery on March 8. Really? Where in the hell is that considered 2 days?! Anyway, rant over. Once my ink arrives, and I have some time on a weekend, I’m going to update my daily schedule to include all the new, fun clients I have and work I need to do. I think I’m more excited about updating that than anything else. Yeah, yeah, I’m a dork…I know.
Lastly, my weight has changed. I’ve gained a little bit of weight since starting the move and the new work. I’ve found myself slipping back into old habits again, like eating at my desk, eating whatever is quick, and no working out. I even forgot to put my FitBit on today! I haven’t been logging my food like I should and that’s not like me. I’ve got so much going on but that’s no excuse. I can’t wait until my house is finished and I don’t have to run here, there, and everywhere to get things done.
The weight that I have gained, I’ll take off. That’s not going to be an issue. I refuse to go back to where I started. If that means I don’t work 12 hour days anymore, so be it. My health will come first! Change is difficult for me because I’m a creature of habit; I like schedules and routines. When something gets in the way, I often don’t know what to do or how to handle it. But, that’s something I’m constantly working on.
What changes have you gone through lately?
