I Can Improve #4

An entire week without stress or worry and filled with relaxation!


I was asked if I am looking forward to being back in routine after the holiday break. My answer was no, because I enjoyed the time to read and relax. And that is true – I read an entire book in one day the other day. That’s amazing to me – it rarely happens!

I realized, though, I am looking forward to being back in routine – but I think I see it differently than others do. I enjoyed every moment of my holiday break. I enjoyed being lazy, of working on projects at home, of traveling, seeing family and a couple of friends, of having pajama days and tossed-together meals.

But I also enjoy my routine – it’s filled with my nephew, daughter, sister, and brother in law. It’s filled with the work I love to do. And it’s filled with communication with my friends and family afar. I did very little (for me) communicating via social media, and much has happened in my time away. I look forward to catching up and seeing all the wonderful things that have transpired in the last 3 weeks!

I Can Improve #4:
Find a way to balance the in-the-moment with the social media, because MY social media accounts are filled with personal friends and family, not just the friends I met online.

Three Happy Thoughts #17

Poor Nacho was sick today, and wanted to be held and rocked most of the day.

1) I got to hold and rock my very active nephew for most of the day.
2) I finally got a piece of a puzzle at work to cooperate (had to get tech support to help with back end support on a site we use).
3) I received a box from my Bela!

Three Happy Thoughts #16

Mondays are no longer my enemy, since III love my jobs so much!

1) I made a delicious creamy butternut squash roasted poblano soup, Mexi-style rice with a bit of butternut squash, and crisped up some of my frozen Carnitas from last week. My lunches this week are going to rock! The perfect bite above.
2) Received fantastic feedback from a client.
3) Found out I am closer to trying to expand my business than expected!

Three Happy Thoughts #5

You know you look like death warmed slightly over when both your daughter and sister-who are prone to saying only positive things to you make comments ask if you are okay. Daughter: “You look terrible! You are really pale and your hair is oily!” Sister, upon first seeing me (said with utter astonishment: “Are you alright?!?”


I laughed at both of them, by the way. I do feel like utter crapola. Which brings me to my 3 Happy Thoughts.

1) Nephew, referred to as Nacho Muchacho more often than not, was a complete angel today. Very gentle all day, brought his toys to me so he could sit in my lap, no temper displays, very quiet, and very little interest in roaming around although I opened the gates and was willing to follow him while he explored. Lots of neck nuzzles. Slept really well.

2) Meal prep is super simple through most of the week. Sis cooks ahead for Nacho Muchacho, and I cook on Mondays for myself. A few seconds or minutes in the microwave, meals are ready! This I can handle even when dizzy and exhausted.

3) I can work from my bed or couch when need be. I am about to do some more of that now. My job rarely gets put off a full day when I am not feeling well, because I love my clients and my work. So I rest for a few hours, work in my more lucid moments, and am usually able to accomplish whatever is needed. If I worked in an office, I would have to call out, lose pay, and lose time on project completion!

I love my job. I love my life. I love my people. I am a lucky girl!
