Dusting off the Cobwebs

It's been awhile since my fingers have pressed these keys.  I couldn't think of anything to write and it wasn't for lack of available topics.  I just couldn't...talk.

I have just returned from my favorite place in the whole world.  A place that if we weren't tied to our jobs and a house that is worth half what we paid, I would move there in a minute.  When I am there everything in my mind is clear.  I am a better self.  I am confident in my body even with the extra pounds that have been hanging on.  I am a better mother, a better wife, a better me... There my head is clear the air is like magic.  My mind is quiet, my heart beats slowly and my soul is calm.

It's not paradise, it's not a perfect place as I am not a perfect person but when I'm there it still feels like home.  Even though I had to leave and come home, the calm lingers with me still and brings me comfort and excitement to return again soon.  I am reminded what's important in life and to treasure your friends and your family.

{So with a clear head I am here again and ready to write once again...}

I think I'll start with some bullets of my most recent thoughts or leftovers as Danifred would call them!
  • My hair is as long as it was in high school.  I've been growing it out for over a year now and I'm now not sure if I should chop it all off again and start over or just let it go.  
  • Muffin continues to make improvements in his speech and development but it's slow and steady.  Only when I am around other children his age am I reminded just how far behind I know he is.  I'm haunted by the results of out county school system when they denied him services, "He scores low but not low enough..."  I pray this kid catches up.
  • Our living room/family room is being painted next Monday and I am ECSTATIC.  This is so overdo I can't even begin to tell you how run down the house is looking and how great it is going to look again.  I chose a nice neutral gray to contrast the maple cabinets and the red couch;)  Yippee!  I need something new to look at everyday:)
  • My current goals in life are:
    •  Remember to do thinks my hubby asks.  I have a terrible memory.
    • Be more patient with my boys, yell less.
    • Get back on the workout/weight loss train, even though I am happier now with my appearance and confident in my own skin than I have been in a long time, I still want to fit into a certain pair of jeans that are buried in my closet.
    • Find a way to live in a new place and make a better life for my family.

I'm here...

I've been so busy working and shooting and editing and mothering I haven't had anything to blog about that anyone would even think is remotely interesting.  I'm sorry.  I'll get a post up soon.  Heading to the petting zoo with Muffin today.

Hope you are all well out there in blog land.
