chugging along...

Not too much going on around here...summer is in full swing and I am LOVING it! I literally have been outside from sun up to sun down everyday!
I have been trying to focus on living right now...I get caught up thinking about what is ABOUT to happen or what COULD happen or what SHOULD happen. Really, I need to just realize that I have a great husband, a wonderful dog, a nice house, and a great job that I love. I mean, come on, what else do I need?

I think sometimes Iget caught up in what I THINK people THINK I should be...I have a friend that always asks me "when are you going to get pregnant?" I have people in my family who say "you spent so much money getting a college degree why do you want to be a nanny?" This list could go on and on...Most of the time I just laugh it off, sometimes I feel bad for myself and think, yeah I should have a baby...yeah I should work full time and get a REAL job. I think though most of the time I just think to myself, why do these people care what I do???

I am lucky that I only have to work 20 hours a week...my husband takes career of me. I am lucky that when I want to go somewhere I don't have to find a baby sitter.
Life is great...why in the world do I let other people bring me down? My goal now is to remember that I am HAPPY because I like MY life!

On another NOTE, ha ha...I started my SEO class up at the college last week. It is very informative. The teacher is really good and funny! I am feeling better about the whole thing. Pretty soon I will be more confident with my SKILLS and I will be able to interview for more jobs!! Hopefully by September I will be ready and able to secure a job since the little kiddos will be in school...they are getting so big!

Oh, happy summer!!

not too much

This week has been so HOT! I love it! It got up to about 95 degrees every day and I soaked it all in!!! I do think that my new hanging basket suffered a bit though...it WAS big and luscious looking but now it is a little saggy looking! Hopefully it will perk back up when the temperatures get back down in the 80 degree range.

Not too much else going on around here. It has been nice sitting outside in the bright sunshine. I started reading these books by Diane Mott Davidson about a caterer named Goldy. They are like murder-mysteries. Not too thought provoking but better than staring at the TV all day. They are pretty funny and come with recipes from the catering events she does in the books. I thought that was interesting.

I also signed up for an SEO class at the college here in town. I think it will be very helpful. I stepped up my training and got a client...Pretty exciting stuff! The client is a friend of mine and I am using his website to practice. He is a VERY talented watchmaker (among other things). If you wanna check him out go to:


Anyway, so far so good with the new SEO skills...we shall see!
