I'm still alive :o) Life is great

Wednesday, April 07, 2010

It's been a little while since I have written a blog. Sorry but I have a feeling that this one is going to be all over the place and a little long. So much has gone on since I last wrote. I've had a really hard time focusing on my goals. I am going to try to revamp them and get some new rewards. Not that I am making excuses for myself but first I got sick for a little over a month. That really derailed my exercise, I really need to overcome the all or nothing attitude. I also start a financial class and we are really trying to focus on our financial health. Things are going good there, but I just really have a hard time really focusing in on more than one thing. On top of that my rewards kinda went out the window as we really want to get all our debts paid so we can live a more peaceful life :o) It's a long hard process just like the one with weight/food/fitness etc. As long as we move in the right direction and keep our eye on the prize we are in good shape. I just need to remember what I truly want in life and what makes me happy.

I'm really trying to brainstorm to see what I can do about my job situation. I'm the only one that can change it. I am very thankful that I have a good paying job in this economy, but I'm just so unhappy with the work I do. I want to be able to help people and not be stuck in a cube all day long. La La La La La Although spinning in the chair is sometimes fun. Ha Ha Ha I like to be creative with things too, and my job really doesn't allow for that. Money isn't everything I know, but we still do have bills to pay. With that being said I need to make sure that if I end up finding something somewhere else it needs to pay close to what I am making now. Someday if we keep looking forward we will have the financial freedom to do more of what I love :o) Such as the volunteer work, I just love doing all that, it's so wonderful to be able to help someone, and to be able to do that more often would be wonderful.

My half marathon didn't end up happening due to me being sick and unable to run for over a month :o( but I did get to run the 5k with my son and husband :o) So it all worked out. My son is 9 and he did good. I was proud of him that he finished his first race. More to come for sure. I Will run a half marathon in 2010. :o)

I also got to go to the spark rally and meet several other sparkers. It was a pleasure to meet all of you!!!!! I look forward to spending more time getting to know more of you. If anyone ever want to try to meet up and get moving send me a message, maybe we can do a group hike sometime or something. I want to try to start running again, but like to walk/hike too. I'm also up to trying new active adventures.

Next weekend we will be going to Vegas for my daughter to compete in Nationals for Hip Hop. She just turned 11 on Monday, how time flies. I love watching her passion when she dances.

Trever and I are working an event in Cleveland in July for four days. We have decided to leave a little early and fly to New York to celebrate our five year anniversary a little early. I haven't been since I was a little kid and he has never been. I can't wait for that trip, I get to spend some wonderful time with my hubby. Then we get to see our incredible three day family (the people that we met through crewing the event in Phoenix) They have such great values and are awesome people. This event that we help out with is also a great experience everyone is so wounderful.

Last but certainly not least I have also gotten to know a fellow spark friend much better and look forward to spending more time with her and her family. Kryanprincess (Kris) I am so glad to have gotten to meet you and your family, you are a wonderful and inspiring woman. Thanks for being a great friend!!!

Well I have babble enough for now. I hope to be on-line here more sorry I haven't posted and replied to everyone as much lately. You are all in my thoughts ;o) Hugz ~Amy~

    U are so SWEET!!! I've really enjoyed my time with you and ur family! You and Trev are awesome parents and have taught your kids very well! emoticon It's hard to focus on more than one thing especially when it takes so much energy to focus on it. Between a healthier you and a healthier wallet, well I think those are two very big things! You will find your balance, and you are on a right track in so many ways, It will just take us longer to get there! But hey! We will help each other and work on getting there together! WE CAN DO THIS!!! emoticon emoticon

    Hi Amy,
    I'm sorry you could not run the half marathon. But there are surely plenty more emoticon How neat that you and your family did a 5k together!

    I decided I need to recuperate for one more week, and then I'll be back in shape and will be ready for hiking in addition to what I'm already doing. I'd be glad to join a group of hikers. I'm also getting faster emoticon

    Glad to see you back!!!

    I'm so bummed I missed the rally and an opportunity to meet you!
    We'll be sure to meet soon.
    Another meet-up that passed us by was at your 5k...I ran that 1/2 there. Wish I would have seen you guy.

    Good job to your son! That's amazing!
    I'm trying to get my older kids to run with me and that hasn't happened yet. SO, I couldn't imagine them running 3.1 miles. WOW!!!

    Sounds like a wonderful trip planned for your anniversary! HAVE FUN!!!

    And good for you on working on your finances...it sure takes a lot of work like working on our health!
    Glad to see you back!
