I haven’t blogged in a very, very, VERY long time… But I don’t think anyone reads it so I don’t think anyone missed me. Why haven’t I gotten around to sharing my life with the world? Well… I’ve been trying to find a balance in life between being a mom, a wife, working, the housekeeper, weight loss, finding a house and all of the other million things that come up everyday that need my attention. So those are my excuses… want to know the real reason… I’m effing lazy. All of that takes a lot out of me and I just didn’t bother to make the time. Nice huh? Well at least I’m honest.
Mommy. I love it! I couldn’t be happier. Mr. Parker is doing wonderfully. He is 8 months old now!! I, like every other parent in the world asks everyday “How do I stop you from growing up so fast?!” He is crawling, has two teeth and thinks I’m the funniest person in the entire world. (I know that in the very near future he is going to realize that I’m far more of an embarrassment than a comic. I still have high hopes that he’ll let me walk him to the bus stop as long as I promise not to kiss him. or wear my pj’s.)
Me and the Hubby. I don’t think I have ever been more in love with him. He is such a good person to everyone in his life. He loves me and P to the end of the world. He works too hard and plays too little to make sure that we are taken care of. “I love you!”
Work. Work is good. The mommy guilt is getting better. (did you hear that ladies… IT GETS BETTER!) I love my time at home and thank the universe that it has worked out so I only have to work part-time. But now, I do look forward to going to work. I enjoy what I do and who I work with.
Housekeeper. Um… Ya… It has gotten better, I will say that. I try not to get overwhelmed as much or care if there are dirty dishes in the sink when we go to bed. I have found that if I set a day for me to “detail” the house and just work on the maintenance stuff every other day… it’s a working progress. Lets go with that.
Weight loss. I’m down 25lbs. (“woo hoo!!”) The “lightest” I’ve been in 4 years. I say lightest, ’cause smallest doesn’t apply. Growing a human has forever changed my body and I’m annoyingly jealous of those freaks of nature that show ABSOFREAKINGLUTLY NO EVIDENCE of it. This will forever be a journey of mine and I know that. I have made strides in the right direction though.
Buying a house… Yes, we are buying a house. The Hubby and I are currently renters and want more than anything to NOT be. We have an offer in on a short sale property and are just waiting for Bank Of America to… get off their effing bums and look at our paperwork… oops, I mean, get back to us. ::FINGERS CROSSED::
Finding a balance is something I know everyone strives toward and something I know that I’ll be working on for the. rest. of. my. life. ::sigh::
