A few years gone?

I just thought I would start writing again, I need that outlet. And I figured now would be the perfect time, it’s summer time!

But while I’ve been MIA, a lot has happened. Like months and months worth of posts. 🙂

Over time, I’ll share but for now, I’m single (thank goodness), I’m free and I’m loving life.

Here is a preview for a post to come! 🙂

Life in general.

While attending yet another funeral (6 in the past 6 years), I feel overwhelmed with how short life truly is.

I haven’t always embraced the carpe diem attitude. I’m more “Okay, and the plan is…. then it’s….. and then…..” type attitude. That’s me. I am a planner. But realistically, I need to be seizing the day, enjoying each beautiful and glorious moments that occur.

I really want to take a photo of something everyday. 365 days of photos. That would be truly magnificent to look back and say this picture was taken on 4/4/2014, in Sandy, Ut and recall those memories. I think I’m going to start, TODAY!

p.s. today’s my half birthday. Happy half-birthday to me!

Argh! It’s the weekend, thankfully!

This week was so terribly long! I can’t believe that not sleeping one night could throw off so many things. Like my patience. I’m a reader but I have this huge problem– I don’t stop reading until the book is done and with this series, until the series is done. I am on the last book at least!

I kicked off the weekend by going up to Park City to celebrate one of the babies that I used to baby sit for— I started babysitting the boys when the oldest was 4 months and he’ll be 12 this year! It’s crazy that the boys are getting so big! But I realized how I love Park City. It’s beautiful! I have a feeling that my escapes will be more frequent to PC.

And a little body pump update: I successfully did every single track! Including my best friend track–lunges. I hate them so much.

Now to go shopping with my make-up from last night, sweating and probably most definitely smelling of stinky girl.

Freak yes!

Freak yes! I can successfully say that since October 10 I have lost 16. Now thanks to those of giving me the courage, the desire, and the mental pictures to punch the lights out of and to lift weights too. You know who you are.

I wish I could say that I knew how much longer was left on this journey but I don’t know. It has left me excited, energized and ready to kill it today.

The sick teacher.

This teacher is super sick, AGAIN. Last week was that nasty cold and this week…. wait for it…. strep. 

It is not fair. TWO weeks in a row being sick. This is the first sick day that I’ve taken in the two weeks. 

Yesterday, I kicked major teacher butt! I introduced National Symbols. The KIDS LOVED IT! I loved it! We painted a flag. The kids followed EACH step of the directions (well, 18 out of 20 did). They alternated every other stripe and the flags look awesome. We will be adding the stars hopefully tomorrow. 

I gave my district math test two days ago. That also rocked! These kids are learning and growing so much this week! I can’t believe it. I actually miss them today. 😦

But then again, there is construction at my house and the cute tiler is back. 🙂 There is the silver lining.
