Welp, I took a little break from sparkpeople because I was in a little bit of a dark place. Work got me down and just in to a place that I didn't want to be. I was heartbroken because with my schedule, I could no longer be with my children full time and watch them grow and when I was home, I was so busy cleaning and trying to play catch up that I still didn't have time to spend with them and then I was just plain exhausted! I have NEVER missed a single event at school or during the extra curricular activities and I have missed so much during the past 6 months that it was taking a toll on me.
So last Friday, September the 12th, I quit my job. It took a toll on my depression and I just couldn't handle it mentally anymore. I was constantly being belittled and yelled at by my higher ups.
This past week has been AMAZING! I have gotten to rest, clean my house, take my kids to their activities (which is super busy!), got to see my daughter dance her very first performance with the competition dance team that she on, take them to school, get them off the bus at the end of the day....I love it! I love being a mom to my 5 children!
I now plan to get back in to shape...I keep saying Im going to do it, I keep starting and quitting but now, I can! I can do it!
This week will be equally as busy...Monday night-Chloe dance, Eli soccer practice, Tuesday-Chloe dance, Thursday-Noah and Eli tae kwon do... and starting next week, my Noah will be in Boy Scouts on Tuesday nights.
Oh and my Chloe did win her pageant that I wrote about in the last blog...She is the 2014 Little Miss Greensville-Emporia Peanut Festival queen and 1st runner up in talent!
