The New Me

i know there’s something i’m to do

i just don’t know with what or who

i’ve come so far in these two years

but now do what with these last fears

i’m learning more and more each day

i’m learning that i’ve much to say

i look inside, inside myself

to find a way for you to help

to understand the way i think

i lean on you, so i don’t sink

you come to me, your arms out wide

you come to me, your at my side

the words you say are always true

though sometimes they are far and few

you say to do it on my own

always in a gentle tone

wanting nothing but the best

making sure i pass each test

so even though i’ve come to love

everything that you speak of

i think the last thing i seek out

is only found within my doubt

i have to know, i have to see

that when you’re gone, i am just me

i see my path, i know the way

this coming year is my new day

my journey does go on from here

i’ll find the peace that’s very near

so now to bring this to an end

with all my love, my treasured friend

i know that if we’re far or near

if we speak or if there’s tears

that I am better because of you

it’s you i see the new me through

Taking Control – No Looking Back !!

I’m not gonna lie – this is how I’ve felt over the past year or so.  I start to get in shape – my motivation wanes – and I revert to the sign above – Go ahead….you’re already fat.

I’m refusing to let this mentality control my life!!  I return from San Francisco on Sunday, January 3rd and my healthy lifestyle begins – no sabotage or making excuses!

I have all the knowledge to be successful –  healthy diet, stay active and keep a positive mental attitude.

2010 goals

*See me complete my first year of college & begin my second

*See me utilize the organizational knowledge (I’m studying) to decrease my anxiety and be more productive

*See me celebrate my oldest son’s marriage

*See me transform my body to a healthy weight

*See me (God willing) sell my house

*See me spend more quality time with my friends

*See me accumulate a substantial emergency savings

*See me remain focused on financial responsibility

*See me continue to meet new families and love, love, love being their Nanny

Blades of Glory!

Wusthof knives from my boyfriend Greg 🙂

Love them!  You all know how hard it is to prepare food with dull knives.

I’m so happy to get these!!

A landlord I am not!

This past summer I bought a condo and opted to rent out my one bedroom house.  Not fully realizing all the planning and contingencies that needed to be thought through as a landlord – I now face a non-paying renter.

Easy decision – I plan to have a realtor over to the house next week and will be putting the house up for sale.   Now I just need a quick “as is” sale.  Keep your fingers crossed!

Great way to display books !!

Perfect way to display my books in the small area I have.  Love this – floating shelves – very creative!

I fell in love....
