So, Gage is off to bed and I have a few minutes to myself to continue this update. I guess the reason I'm coming back to this blog is that I am starting to come out of the fog that I've been in ever since I got pregnant and I am feeling inspired to go out and be part of the world again. Pregnancy was kind of hard for me, due to my extreme fatigue, and I have to admit, the first couple of months after Gage was born was not the easiest. I had so many expectations on how I thought things would be, and none of it really went the way I planned. I hated feeling out of control, with the inability to gain control, so I kind of wasn't the happiest woman on the block. Everything is better now, though, and I'm really enjoying being at home with Gage, and working on finishing my schooling. I've been spending some time online lately getting inspired by all these women out there who manage to cram much more in their day than I do. It's time for me to join these ranks. So...in order to be accountable I am going to list the things that I am working on now. I'm journeying back to a closer relationship with God. I'm working out again, and plan to run a 5 mile race in July (perfect way to celebrate 1 year of motherhood). I'm going to finish my schooling to the best of my ability. I will become a better consumer...reusing things I have, trying to shop responsibly, and making things if possible. I will be a better steward in my home and will provide healthy meals for my family. I will look at the blessings in my life much more than the negatives. I'm not sure if anyone is ever going to read this blog other than me, but that's okay, because at least I'm putting myself out there.
Another purpose for this blog is to point out some interesting stuff I find along the way, such as recipes, fitness, home management, finance...anything at all really.
