My husband has been traveling a lot lately. When he's gone I'm a single (married), working mother of 3 small, active little girls. Time is in short supply (which is why I haven't posted a blog in awhile!). There never seems to be enough hours in the day to get done what needs to get done.
Everyone have different lives. Do you have support from other people or do you not want people to know that you are trying to lead a heathier lifestyle? It is ok if you fall off track, people are there to help you get back on, if you let them. BE OPEN and ready to attack your fears, get out of the mud.
On New Year's Day, while waiting for 2013 to arrive, I watched the movie "We Bought A Zoo" with my daughter and husband. The movie is an inspiring story about Benjamin Mee.

It's that time of year again...Halloween! Little goblins will soon be visiting my door asking for treats. And I can't wait!
You see, Halloween brings back the joy of childhood for me. Thinking I was really the costumed creature I was made up to be. (Although I think I'll forget about the year I was a grape. Long story and poor choice by our classroom teacher for a themed class costume of fruit! Thanks Aunty!). And let's not forget, the candy! I still remember the house that gave out full size candy bars! Halloween was always full of a little bit of candy, mystery and mischief.
