Hey! This is my journal and I suppose I ought to introduce myself. I'm KC, I'm 30 (will be 31 in Jan) and I'm married to Kelly, 29 we have one DS, Preston who was born 3-20-02. We're also Mommy and Daddy to four furbabies - two cats Princess and Winston and two dogs Wagner and Sampson.
We recently moved from Colorado Springs to Gillette WY in order to give Preston a better upbringing. I work part time at nights as a waitress - and yeah - it sucks, but the money is great for part time work. We're hoping that in a few months to a year that I will not have to work at all and will be able to totally stay home.
I wanted to start a journal in order to help me stay motivated and on-track. I have been feeling overwhelmed and quite frankly sorry for myself - and it is time that changes! I subscribe to the flylady.net program and it's helping. I'm starting to change my mindset on a lot of things - but being a perfectionist I expect instant gratification. We are also TTC #2 - and again the instant gratification expectations make for some serious letdowns.
So I need to put my goals down for the next 3 months (Now through Christmas-time) because once they're on paper maybe I can follow through! :bonkself:
1. Keep my sink shiny - this is a flylady-ism. Check out her website www.flylady.net if you've never heard of her - she's excellent. :jumpingbeans:
2. Start going to the gym three times a week. I need to get registered for step-aerobics at the rec center. Their morning classes run right before Mom and Tot swim classes - so Preston can be in their day care while I get my butt kicked and then we'll have fun time together! :pinkelephant:
3. Save for Christmas so that it's not a big panic two weeks before. This includes having a garage sale so that I can get rid of some of our overwhelming clutter!
I would say that another goal would be to get pregnant, but I know that will happen when it's supposed to and not a moment sooner.
