I went away for awhile, but now I'm back. I think life just got a little too crazy. Things are settling down into a nice routine. One of the biggest changes I made while I was gone, was to change jobs. I had worked in the school system for 7 years, working with children who had various needs, from physical, emotional, mental, and monetary needs. Children in poverty can quickly get left behind, but our school system was great and we tried to reach out to everyone who needed help. BUT, it was stressful. I loved the one-on-one work, but it left me depleted at the end of the day, and "working" at a different school system then the one my children went to, was hard. Hard keeping track of 3 different schools, finding myself volunteering more at my school then their schools, just stressful.
I now work as a receptionist in a real-estate office part time. The hours are great...I can put my kids on the bus and be at home before they get home, plus have an hour to myself each day. It makes a HUGE difference!!!! I haven't had that alone time. I need it to soothe my soul!!!
SO...now I'm back. I've made a worksheet of the things I want to accomplish each day. I had to take clean the bathrooms off the list, because they were never getting done, and in it's place I put, check in with spark people and exercise!
