I am known to ALWAYS be so so overly serious but my love muffin son has forced me to LOCATE my funnybone!

With his various activities, most days coming home SUPER late – we are stopping by a drive throough pick up window or sitting down for the last 30 minutes of a restaraunt before they close…..  crazy I know!

I have been celebrating my birthday since February even though most of you knew that it was last month but I am still getting well wishes…

( THANKS FOR ALL OF THE CALLS, EMAILS AND PRIVATE POSTS)

Nonetheless, Im still super happy and making sure that I stay on tract!!! I vowed to start celebrating my birthday for the whole 28 days since last year for my “late father’s sake”…. Now, all I want to do is laugh and seriously enjoy MY LIFE…

Well we are well into heading into the second week of March and I am STILL GOING STRONG! My mom, sister, nephew and son have been cheering me on since January and im very grateful that I am making a very concise decision to move on “with them in mind”….. No stopping ME now!

Before June 2013


I have indeed planned to visit all of these places before June 2013….. I will…I can and I must…

Solo me falta NYC =/

I have lived in so many states… that picking up and going is surely not an option for me. I like to think of myself maybe as a cavalier so to speak… Pick and go..Pick up and move in an INSTANT!

I have talked and shared LONG stories with people who have traveled…..relocated a few times as well as people who have NEVER lived outside of the same state, never traveled or even driven across the county borders of their municiplalities….. and I HAVE TO TELL YOU that the mind sets are conversations are totatlly different! I wish that EVERYONE would desire to shift their life just a little because the world is not only a big place but it is indeed HUGE / MASSIVE!

Explore it so that you can enjoy it…..BEFORE you die off this earth!

It’s Mental


Your mental health is very important. You will not have a healthy body  if you don’t also take care of your mind. People depend on you. It’s important  for you to take care of yourself so that you can do the important things in  life  —  whether it’s working, learning, taking care of your family,  volunteering, enjoying the outdoors, or whatever is important to you. ( etc…etc..etc..etc.. )

Good mental health helps you enjoy life and cope with problems. It  offers a feeling of well-being and inner strength. Just as you take care of  your body by eating right and exercising, you can do things to protect your  mental health. In fact, eating right and exercising can help support good  mental health. You don’t automatically have good mental health just because you don’t have mental health illness. You have to work to keep your mind healthy.

Remember to always make time  for you. It’s important to care for yourself. Think of this as an  order from your doctor, so you don’t feel guilty! No matter how busy you are,  you can try to set aside at least 15 minutes each day in your schedule to do  something for yourself, like taking a bubble bath, going for a walk, or calling  a friend.  Being a WOMAN means that we are ALL wearing multiple hats whether by CHOICE or not….. we are wearing them. So why not do our best in taking care / better care of ourselves.. It really indeed all starts mentally because if the mind goes, then so will everything else!

Please make it a point to live and be mentally healthy starting >>>>>>>>NOW!

Temporary Bad Example


Ummm… I cannot believe that today had me looking crazy and setting a BAD example for my son! UGGHHH was I horrible today…. I have a few instances that I could share on what transpired during my day but there are too many to list! However, let me share this one today which transpired as we were driving through an area that would be considered like a “mini country ” like setting….. Nothing but road and trees were in our midst!! LOL

ME – baby go ahead and toss your trash out of the window

HIM – mom no, that is littering

ME – but we are out in the country, i would never tell you to do that in a neighborhood

HIM – i threw it out mom but what if an animal eats our trash or gets sick

ME – baby they are vegetarians and eat grass and bushes

HIM – but what about the enviornment  mom

ME – ummm ok you are right and i am sorry love muffin

HIM – thank you mommy because i dont want to get arressted for littering or hurting animals either

ME – oh boy i have al gore to thank for this conversation i guess

HIM – well you made me watch bill clinton so much that i start reading about al gore and pollution

ME – im glad that i taught you well

HIM – you did mommy and im going to be a good man when i get older too

ME – you are so amazing and im grateful that God is showing me how to raise you

HIM – mommy stop holding my hand and watch the road since you are driving

UUGGHH!! My son #ROCKS!

Toodles!


Welp…. my baby is going to yet another camp for the summer and he is excited AND SO AM I!!! This is the first year that he has been to so many camps but it has been good for both of us…. Alone time for myself and he started feeling more independent….. The only thing he stated was …Mom just dont leave me at a camp for more than 2 weeks! LOL Which I would never do…. because I already know that we BOTH would miss one another way too much!

Sending my son to camp during the summer provides him with chances to expand  his skills, make friends and experience unusual opportunities.

I swear to goodness that I SO LOVE AND ENJOY being a parent to this little boy! He has his days of course but so do I!! LOL This has been a challenging 2012 for us both and we have managed to get through it.. thank you Lord…

 

Anyway……school starts in 3 weeks and we both will be having an extended vacation….. Fall baseball starting… Swim Team, Band and of course Soccer!
