My Week Off!

Well, the week off is drawing to a close and it didn't give me all the results I wanted!  However, it did give me some and I can't say I am disappointed. Although don't think I am bragging about being off of work I was sick more than half of the time. As seen in previous posts I did get my shed cleaned out and switched around which got me started on the rest of the house cleanout which will continue now through the next two weeks. Then if all goes well we start remodeling soon after that.  I was able to organize not only my freelance writing but my freelance.  This alone will be a great big help starting next week when I am doing everything like I plan. I have a schedule and I want to stick to it as much as possible.

My week starts on Sundays because my work week at my main job starts on Sundays.  Makes it easier when setting up a weekly schedule to get what I need finished.  I am trying my best to turn myself back around which means a couple of things. I had resolutions and I am updating them a little bit! So here is the updated list.


  • I am going to control my financial stability more by keeping myself on a schedule not only with my home business but my freelancing.  This means having the time during the day for the recycled crafts, working on the computer and my store.
  • I am going to focus more on my blog and work on affiliates and self-promotion.
  • My home is my castle so I am going to enforce the get it together rule I am sick of it being a mess and really what mom wants to spend their days off cleaning 24/7
  • Taking care of myself...This is something that all moms forget to do.  I don't care if its 30 minutes a day it's going to let's focus on me time.
  • I am going to work in my garden more as I stopped for a while and it is something I really do enjoy and we get free groceries out of the deal.
  • Working on controlling my anxiety and depression more. Yes, I suffer from Anxiety Depression and Bipolar disorder. I am always fighting it and I always will but you know what I can deal with it. I have quite a few good reasons to such as in my kids, husband, granddaughter and my golden Buddy. (Check Out the Always Keep Fighting Campaign from Supernaturals Jared Padalecki featured here on Supernatural WIKI!)
  • My weight is the last. I will admit I like to eat. I can cook as well and combine that with my depression and anxiety I am one hot mess. I have started a new regimen and hopefully things will work out I am excited but not so excited because with my issues I just hit 265 and I can't live like this any more. I should be around 130-145. The battle is on.

So what more can I say I had 6 days of either Good, ehh or ugly.  I hated being under the weather thats for sure. But now its getting better and I know a positive outlook is the first step!

Much Love All!

Me in my dorkiness I can't wait till I can wear my fitted clothes again!

Self Motivation!


Yesterday, I was full of self-motivation. I cleaned out the shed, started doing the cleaning in the house and not only did I do 1 but 2 blog posts. However, I am sore today and went to bed and woke up with a splitting headache bordering on a migraine. What can I say I am a contradiction to myself. Well, I decided to work through the pain and took 2 Aleve. Grabbed a few drinks and started my day. The above picture is my desk. I am slowly working on a little schedule I made myself today. Remeber though even the best-laid plans can be changed. I am okay with that if it happens but until then, this mama will be getting stuff done.

Have you ever felt that no matter how many times you try to do something your plans could be changed in the matter of minutes or even seconds?  Today is day two of six days off and I keep repeating to myself it's before noon you got this.  I take a big breath, pull up my big girl panties and continue on.

What do you do to keep yourself motivated and going when life interrupts your plans for work and home. I would love to hear any suggestions you might have below.

New Years Resolutions?

Hello Everyone!

Well, How are your New Years going so far? Sadly to say for me I am a little disappointed up till today. Not because it been a bad new year. The year has been pretty good so far! But until this week things I wanted to start just had to be put on the back burner because of life. But here I am and life has gotten better and I started accomplishing some goals. 

The biggest goal was to get the shed sorted and get the boxes that needed to be priced in the house and everything that shows up on my online blog store that was already posted and priced organized. I accomplished that and I am so happy.
So everyone understands that storage shed was full top to bottom this morning. So checking it off made my day.

So if any of you are like me please remember that no matter what plans we make they can be changed. We just have to learn how to roll with it and work around the crazy.  My next part of my resolution was to create less garbage in our home so let's see what I can do about that!

Also my homemade and recycled crafts will be picking up this week and be added to the store as I am organizing the house and getting stuff done. I will also be doing more with the blog more often as well so keep an eye out for the new and upcoming things that I am super excited about! However, for now, its a surprise as it is in the planning stages but I am hoping you will all like it!

Well, my dears that's all for now!!
Blessings to you all,

Angie

A Chilly Start To The New Year!

Baby, It's Cold Outside! No Seriously Get A Coat!

Or as my daughter, Megan said: "This is Florida where are the sun and warmth!"

I hope everyone is staying warm and toasty! For me, I am glad I have a large collection of joggers, sweaters and socks. I mean I am looking out the window next to my desk and work table and there is an overcast, the street lights are on, and its a dreary day!  

This afternoon when I ventured outside I looked to the new area where my garden is to go this year and as long as this weather holds my garden will not be planted.  That makes me sad because I have so many plans this year for my garden. This Florida girl is dreaming of warmer weather and not having to wear socks.

So I have seen a few memes that had me laughing! One, in particular, is the new year new me. I am all for anyone who wants to better themselves. I also think well why not start it at the start of the new year. I also think if you have that friend that wants to lose those 50 pounds instead of mocking the fact the friend chose to start at the beginning of the year you should applaud them and offer to be a work out buddy and go with them.  

I myself have a ton of goals for this new year that we are in and I am happy to say so far so good. I started working on the stuff I needed to yesterday today I am working on the computer and blog.  I will also be working on my granddaughter's mermaid tail today. Now that I figured out how to make it that is...

Well, everyone, I hope you have a great rest of the day and you are staying warm.

Blessings To You All,

Angie
