Big Changes Ahead!

Friday, November 18, 2011

prepare for some rambling...

A huge shout out to my spark people family. You are my support system and y'all have yet to fail me. I appreciate you to no end, and though I have thanked you individually I wanted to put it out there that I LOVE my sparkers and the ability you all have to take time to care for myself and each other. The kindness I receive from you and see spread throughout the SA team and Sp is a breath of freshness that offers me positive perspective every single day!!!

now for them changes....

Our house will be up for sale probably by the end of this month!!! The plan is to remain residing here while it is on the market, which is crazy because we have a lot of decluttering to do! The plan is to rent a tiny 2 bed 2 bath house with a little yard and a big tree (though we haven't found it yet lol) where as this house is 2,000 sq ft 4 bd 2.5 bath w a pool(no thank you). I am so excited for this move because this place really never felt like my home. The only thing that makes me sad is leaving Calissa's nursery because I put a lot into it! That's life.

BTW, if you ever need a nursery design consultant or seamstress, I am your sparkly! *shameless plug*

As far as fitness I worry how showing the house will dictate my ability to work out? This will only be answered with time. We are looking for homes near McAllistar Park so I have running trails and parks to take Calissa too! I appreciate that my lifestyle changes are being considered when it comes to the move.

As for the week ahead- I LOVE hosting, I LOVE cooking, and I LOVE cleaning. All the things that a sahm life is filled with come very natural to me so of course I just LOVE the busy holiday season that is quickly approaching. I am out to deep clean my home today and this weekend we will be painting the dining room, taking down the popcorn ceiling, and adding chair rails. I am very excited for this to finally get done!
I set up the meal plan and added a few more dishes of veggie sides this year.

With all that is going on I am feeling okay, positive, and excited. I am beginning to really appreciate the changes I am seeing in my body though the scale isn't moving, its okay. I am okay.

    That is a great place to live near and plenty of places to look at try, you could also try the trail off of Nacogdoches near Judson Rd it has a lot of hills and near the library and park, that is where I go with my toddler, she loves it. We start out at the trail, stop at the library and park for her to play and then go back to the trail some more. It is really nice. Maybe we can meet up one day and go walking.

Overall, It's nice to hear your spirit's up you may have a lot of work within the week/wks. to come but your a strong person and you can do it. You might be the first person I know who is enthusiastic and ready to bring on these next 3 holidays. Glad to hear your doing fine emoticon .
