My life as a woman, wife and mother.

It’s been forever!

Well, obviously I haven’t blogged in a long time. August to be exact. Things have changed around here and I don’t have the time to expend on blogging. On September 1st I was hired full-time at the library. I was so happy to finally have a full-time job with benefits again! That means I have a lot less time just hanging out a home. Hence, less time to blog.

I’m still going to Crossfit about 4 mornings a week. I love it there! I’m a the Vice President of the Board this year. I’m still new to being a board member, so I’m learning as I go along. We are going to be having our version of the Crossfit Open Games at the end of the month. I’m going to participate this year! Eak! I don’t know why I’m freaked out, but I am. Those workouts can be brutal!

January was a month of no added sugar. A few ladies from the gym and I did that challenge. I survived the whole month with no chocolate! The new challenge for February is to get in my water. My goal is 10 cups a day, but I get a bit more than that. A few other ladies said they too need to work on fluid intake.

The family is doing well. Hubby was laid off work for a bit in December and January. He’s been back now for a couple of weeks and I definitely like the extra money. L is in 9th grade and doing well in school and band. She’s applied for a job, but hasn’t heard yet. I did have her call about a week after she put in her application just to make a good impression. C is in 6th grade and is coming along really well on the clarinet. Her grades are mostly good, but she struggles with math. She always has and it’s more apparent this year. I work with her, but the tests are her downfall.

I started the year will a goal to lose the few pounds I’ve been carrying around for over a year. I’ve made a little progress in January and hope for some more in February.

I’m happy to get a bit of an update on here. I’ll try to pop in once in a while. 🙂
