Bittersweet day...

Today Gage turned 10 years old. I am so proud to be his Mother and now for 10 years, but I can't help but be saddened at how fast it has gone. :( Ryker turned 4 last Sunday and I am having a hard time adjusting to not having a baby. I am not liking it honestly.

This weekend has been nice. Yesterday we had the boys birthday party and it went great. It was amazing weather, couldn't have asked for better. Today was a bit cooler but ok. Fall is definitely here. We took the kiddos to jump zone as a surprise and of course gave me the nice adrenaline rush for the day by making me go down the ship with Ryker around 10 times. I swear I thought we were going to fly off. It was fun though. Steven, took some videos of the weekend, so hopefully I will have some to post soon.

This month is also a reminder of the birth and death of a dear friend who is no longer with us. Miss you Tommy. Love you!

This week has been so long, but so exciting. I was offered a job doing independent contracts for the state in intensive in home therapy. This job will allow me to set my own schedule and be able to stay home with Ryker some days and be able to pick the other two up from school. Basically I can work a lot less and make more money. So yes, I of course jumped on it and put my month's notice in at work. I will go ahead and start with a family next week and ease into it. I will work up to about 4 families. The kicker is since I am basically working for myself I will be able to start my private practice soon. One down side is I will have to pay my own taxes, but so worth it. My last day at Vista will be October 15th.

So excited!!

Over a week in...

Of Insanity that is. The first couple of days my calves were so sore. Not unusual for me as they are usually the weakest part of my body. The workouts are definitely tough and I can finally say that I have found something that gets my heart pumping like derby. I have never been one to want to run a marathon, mainly because I am a cheetah who is built for speed and well, marathons are not for those. Good news is this workout is exactly what I need and by the time I finish the program I will have felt better than if I ran 5 marathons!!

Guess who is jumping on the insanity bandwagon???? Yep, you guessed it. I should be getting my set up tomorrow and will start then as well. I was finding it rather difficult to find something at home that could get my heart racing like it does when I skate, so I figured what they heck. Speaking of skating I am glad to be getting in the groove again. Sometimes the best way to draw closer to something is to take a step back from it. The new home team thing is very interesting. The four teams all have names now. The Heartbreak Rollers (my team of coarse), Hardwood Hustlers (Green), Gatling Girls (pink), you know like the Gatling gun, and the Pistol Whips (Blue). Season starts in January. Hopefully by then my life won't be going in 12 different directions. I keep saying I need to drop somethings but they are all important to me. However, one of them is on a 3 year rotation and will be coming to an end in December. However, it wasn't much of a time commitment so I am not sparing a whole lot of time there, plus it's a church thing so I will just put my energy in through other ways. Speaking of energy, mine is drained and I am going to head off the bed early for a change.
