"Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for", a few years offline. Thanks LL
Seriously, I can't believe I was able to log onto this blog. My last post was in 2013 and it was about Santa. I'm sure it was so hilarious that I had to stop writing. I started this blog when Olivia was born, '09'. It was a way to deal with the medical stresses from the hemangioma. Then when we moved to MD, I talked about my new environment. The lack of friends I was making. Along with the people I didn't like, (I mean who didn't like me). That was a tough time for us. So, we decided to have a second child, our Mila! Eventually, my prayers (and my mom's) were answered. Back to sunny, happy, and expensive CA we went. We moved back to San Diego in 2015, three days before Olivia started kinder. Nothing like introducing your child to her new home state. Then tossing her into a full Spanish immersion school. Take that kid!
Fast foward to last night. Who am I kidding, more like the last two years. I keep thinking "I need to do something with myself". Yes, I run and I'm sure I can bore you with that later. Yes, I'm a mom. It's the most important job you'll ever have, in case you haven't been told so many times. I get to clean, cook, and pack lunches everyday. Wash laundry, help with non English homework, yell all the time, care for the sickies, come up with fast answers when told "mom, my finger hurts when I move it this way". So, don't move that way, I'am amazing. As I look over my wrinkles in the mirror, starting to appear (yes, just starting) I think, is this it?
So, I'm officially bringing it back. All of it! Even this blog.
Some ideas running through my head.
I will set new running goals. Because people love when I overshare about miles and complain when I'm slow. Maybe, i'll try a new fitness venture, and brag about it.
I will adventure into the wild and make friends (just kidding). At least talk to the ones I have.
I will become "awesome mom" and make a shirt about it. Focus on raising kind/polite children who can one day make a difference. HAHA too late, have you met Olivia?
Make a craft when I get a Micheal's coupon, of course.
Sell jewelry for Stella & Dot. Otherwise I have to use it all the time. So, my husband doesn't think I wasted money again.
Start posting cute clothes I want to buy and pretend I have somewhere to wear them.
Be a positive Patty and finally read "40 days to a Joy-Filled Life". Bought a month ago. Couldn't get past page 3, "think this not that".
Looking forward to this fresh start. As my husband of 15 years says "get it done"!
