Like.. OMG!!!

Hey there! So I am kinda refocused and ready to talk about what has been going down the past few weeks.
First of all, Sportsmans Warehouse is closing it's doors. In reality, the owner had no business opening up his two new stores in Las Vegas. Jeff worked at the one that opened in November. He will be out of work by early May. It was a huge blow at first. And lets be clear, it was a hoot being middle class for a few months. We will be golden though. He has already had a few offers at other places and we have his business to fall back on. Granted it may not be as much money as he is making now but we are survivors.

Second, I turned 39 on the 26th of March. to say that my birthday was fabulous would be an understatement. Last year was well, very bad. This year was full of love and happiness. A part of that was Zappos.com and and part of it was my brother and his family in town. I will get to that in a second. Lets talk about Zappos. My department decorated my desk, hired the Zappetts to sing to me, took me out for sushi, and just made me feel really loved. Here is video.



I got some amazing gifts. But the best gift of all was that my brother, Julia and baby Jordan were in town from New York.

It was the first time I got to hold the baby. It was everything I could have asked for and more. The girls loved their little cousin and he loved them. We had some professional pics made up and we had a really groovy time. Here are some of the pictures from the week.

Thank you for your patience.

Deja Vu?

My cholesterol is 248. You should know that it is high and the range is 125-200. High Cholesterol runs in my family. It has nothing to do with my weight because my brother is a Freakin Vegan and weighs a buck o’ nine or something like that and he has high cholesterol. But I am doing something about my weight. I know, we have heard this all before but now I really care about it. I will be 40 years old in 1 year and 20 days. I don’t want to struggle with this anymore. It makes me sad. It puts me in a great depression. So I am truly starting a lifestyle change. Not just with my health but with other things as well.
I have a list of things I want to master in this next year.
1. Be healthy
2. Be more organized with my budget and bills
3. Be more involved with my kids emotionally and physically
4. Organize my kitchen and pantry
5. Figure out a laundry system that works for a family of four with way too many clothes
6. Walk at least 60 minutes a week. I hope to do more.
7. Relax and “let it go”
8. Understand that if people in my life do not accept me for who I am , they have the problem, NOT ME
9. Communication with my Honey Bunny
10. Let him do the things he wants like hunting because he truly loves it and not take it as personal hit that he doesn’t want to be with me. It is not about me.
11. It is not always about me.
12. Embrace the learning opportunities my employer is offering me.
