What in the world?? | Work on it Wednesday

That's what I keep asking myself... 

So far today  I missed the exit dropping the kids off at GG's, forgot my computer at home, screwed up a simple digital signing and managed to forget my lunch at home... twice.

It's good and bad

I love the internet but it's a good and bad place.

The internet can be a really cool place.  I mean you can get on here and find other people who are like you and make you feel okay to be yourself.  But there is another side...

Good Riddance June

June sucked for me.

Deaths, robbery, broken hot water heater... I am so over it...

but apparently I was wrong.

I got robbed... again

Ok, so maybe not as dramatically as the movies but my property was stolen from me and I felt violated.

theft of personal property.
theft, stealing, robbery, pilfering, thieving;
burglary, housebreaking, breaking and entering;
informal filching, swiping, pinching;
formal peculation

Getting your car or house broken into is so very violating.

People in Your Life

I'm actually forcing myself to write this post because I've been putting off writing a post for a while.  I keep a reminder for everything in my phone and for the last few weeks I have been hitting dismiss all too enthusiastically when I should have been stopping to write (bout whatever felt right at the time).  I know there are people who have dedicated their blog to specific topics and that's great but this one is about whatever I feel like when I feel like it... kinda.

I got a little off topic just now... back to the point of this post: People in your life.

I have been blessed enough in life to be born into some pretty amazing families.  Not balling out of control, everyone gets a Ferrari when they turn 16, but the kind filled with love, support and great history.

I could have done better

A few days ago, I just got really disappointed in myself because I know I could have done better.

I've been trying to work on being more positive and finding the good in things but sometimes it is a real struggle.  I want to get into a mind set that I practice what I preach to my little beings which is: 1) be positive and find the good in the situation and; 2) don't take ever thing so serious.  The other thing that I know I need to work on is giving a better effort when I'm assigned a task... like my job.

Burnout Syndrome

I just read an article about a woman who took a "meternity" because she was jealous of her pregnant friends taking a maternity leave.  One glance at the title and I thought, "oh geez, this is bound to stir some controversy."  It did and will continue to do so however, I understand what the woman in the article was feeling; not totally because I have kids and had maternity leave twice but I get what she is saying.

Are you a bridesmaid or are you going to prom??

I am not the type of person you should go to if you want fashion advice.  I love looking at blogs about fashion and seeing the items that people match that don't seem like they'd go but absolutely do.  When I think about my fashion sense and ability I think t-shirts (usually black or gray) and tennis shoes or corporate.  I don't really have much of an in between unless you consider "I just grabbed the most comfortable things I could find" a middle ground.  My wardrobe is kind of a bunch of random clothes put together.

Work on it Wednesday: Am I too old for this??


The answer is no.

Starting over and doing something new is okay.  I try to limit the reckless things that I do but I feel like starting over is not reckless if it is done right.

But what is "right"??

I need to walk the walk

Walk in my beautiful pumps darling

I have spent a good portion of my life trying to make sure I do what my elders tell me to do and to make my family happy.  A few years ago, it occurred to me that they were the happy ones and I was the one who was miserable.

Work on it Wednesday: I'm working on it

I am proud of myself.  I am actually working on it.  Slightly inconsistent and definitely in need of more determination but I am working on it!

What is it?  Well, two things.  The first is my weight.  As you may have read in my last post (over a month ago, whoops!), I wanted to get some of this additional padding off of me.  The second is learning to edit videos.

How you may ask have I been working on these goals?

I need to quit playing myself

I 'm a pretty determined person.  Once, I've decided that I am going to do something I do it.  Not sure how that works but once my mind is made up I guess I decide there are no other options so I just get it done.  Well, the one thing that I have a tenancy to not follow through on one thing... eating right.  I'm not saying that I am not eating my veggies or anything, I just need to get some of this additional padding off my body #LoseSomeWeightGirl!

I mean check out this sexy extra chin I'm sporting

This is where I get all mom on you: Breast Pump Bags (part 2)

This is part two of "Breast Pump Bags" (you can read part one here).

So after carrying the beauty called Lizzy for about a week.  I decided to switch to the other bag, Kelly.

It is so funny to me how much one little bag can have an impact on my life.  Number one, bags make me happy.  I can't explain why, it's just one of those things.  Number 2, they are functional and we all need function in our lives.  Enough with my crazy thought process and on to my thoughts about the bag.

Quick recap of my needs in a bag as a working mom:
  • Must be able to carry pump, accessories, computer and possibly a lunch
  • Must sit well against my body
  • Easy to clean/wipe
  • Can be used after I'm done torturing myself for approximately a year and no longer use it specifically as a pump bag
  • Looks nice

Hello Kelly.  You sure are pretty

This is where I get all mom on you: Breast Pump Bags

Last night as I proceeded to search for a new bag (yes I am becoming a bag lady... but not that kind), it occurred to me that if there are any moms out there who are thinking about whether they should spend a few dollars on some "mommy conveniences", here are some of the ones that I bought or want to buy.

At this point in my life, I've been through kid one and now, I'm over the "make it work" stage and want things to work for me.  Maybe I'm getting old maybe I'm running out of space in my Yukon.  Either way, you get my unsolicited opinions (#ThanksForReading).

This is when I get all mom on you: Going back to work

This is going to be the chapter in my life when so many of my blog posts are going to be all mommy related.  That's your only warning.  If that's not your thing, cool.  If it is your thing, cool.  I appreciate this space and will be getting into the whole mommy whirlwind that my life has become recently.

I recently have gone back to work at my office job.  It's obvious that although I was not working at the kind of job that provides me with cash in the bank and a W-2 that I was extremely busy working.  It's called being a mom.
