I’m getting started with this NaBloPoMo challenge to blog every day in November 2012 a little late
- but better late than never, right?
Be sure to head over and link up if you want to join in.
The blog roll closes on 5 November so you still have a little time!
The last several months have been quiet on the blog, but definitely not in our life.
It has been a whirlwind of doctors visits, hospital stays, chasing a dog, and keeping up with a growing little monkey girl!
There have also been changes on the military side as Sarge has officially been selected as a Tech Sgt Select! He will officially sew on this rank in May 2013, though he is already basically functioning as a Tech Sgt (select) at work.
This has meant a change in work hours and duties. Instead of instructing on flights on a daily basis, he is now supervising Airmen on the ground and works days vs nights. It’s been an adjustment, as we really liked the way night shift worked for us.
Despite the changes this means for us, I am so proud of him and thankful to be married to such a hard working man!
Our little monkey girl, Allie, is sure growing fast! It’s hard to believe that she just turned 2 years old! She is so much fun and we love watching her grow.
Her favorite things are Buzz Lightyear, the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse gang, FaceTiming with Grammy & Papa, sneaking Oreo cookies and playing with her puppy!
She also loves to draw, climb in cupboards, slide and run outside, “read” books, dance, play in the bathtub, and she constantly is making sure she knows where everyone in the family is located.
She has spent an awful lot of this last year getting lab draws, visiting doctors, and staying at the hospital. We hope that we are closer to getting some answers. Be sure to click above on “Monkey’s Story” to stay updated on her health journey.
I’m finding that I need to make more time for myself to have a little “me” time during the week. It’s hard to carve out time, especially with Sarge’s new work schedule but I’m getting there.
I’m enjoying my new balloon wreath crafting that has turned into a fun little business on the side. I also am an Independent Scentsy Consultant and earlier this year was promoted to the title of “Star Scentsy Consultant”.
Being a wife and mother is definitely one of the most rewarding things I have ever done, and I wouldn’t change it for a minute… but I don’t want to lose myself in the process. So, that’s why I’m choosing to make an effort to have some “ME” time and get back to doing the things that I really enjoy doing like crafting, blogging, taking pictures, and maybe I’ll even find time to dive into some good books!
For now, today’s ME time has come to an end as I hear the laundry pile in the hall calling to me to come and wash it and my “to do” while Sarge is home list staring at me from the wall.
More blogging from me soon. I intend to keep up with this challenge!
