Relax & Recharge!

fcb9d620299c9c634d6fc9314702aa02.jpgHappy Sunday y’all! I hope you are having a wonderful and peaceful weekend! I think it is possible that today is my first day in the house that I am not busy or battling with a nasty migraine. We have been living in our new/old house for one month now, but our first two weekends were spent driving 2 hours back to our old home to finish up some loose ends. Let me just say that after working the typical  five-day/40 hour work week and having to basically work a 6th day was hell and way too much for my already exhausted and beaten down body.

I always do my best to keep in touch with the positives in my life, which is why I do my best to avoid the news. But let’s be honest avoiding the news is like avoiding the ocean in the middle of an island, it is pretty much impossible. It breaks my heart with all the hate that is breeding not only here in the United States where I live, but it has taken hold world-wide. It seems like hate spreads worse that a wildfire in a rain forest! I do believe the hate here in the states is continuously being ignited by one individual, which is really imagesjust SAD! I might be incorrect, but there has been a mass shooting in the United States at least monthly and sometimes more. What good does it really do to start killing people you do not agree with? I do not know what causes a person to break off from reality enough to start killing innocent people and I doubt I ever will know or understand this.

For the most part I keep all my opinions regarding politics to myself because that is something that is a HOT topic with most people. Some just can’t accept the let’s agree to disagree stance, but continue to fight their beliefs to the bitter end! I had to learn there are some people I can be very open with, but then there are those others I need to walk on pins and needles with because the argument isn’t worth it!

relax-recharge-and-reflect-sometimes-its-ok-to-do-nothing-20756600For so many years I always made Sunday be my “Relaxation Day!”, but in the recent months I decided to make Saturday be my actual relax/recharge day! I guess I thought after working 5 days, I need one day to just do nothing and it has been working rather well. But the funny thing is, I split my household work up over 3 days this weekend, which made things much easier on me! I think changing up what our “norm” are can be a good thing so we do not get totally burnt out from it all! 

I hope your weekend has been great and I hope you are feeling well! Hopefully you used the weekend to take care of yourself and prepare yourself for a new week! It doesn’t matter that I actually like my job, the weekend still went by WAY too fast and I really could use just one more day! Please never forget that no matter how hectic my life might become, I am always sending you LOTS of  ❤love and comfort!

It is catch up time!

whirlwindThe past few weeks have been like a whirlwind with so many changes and I feel like I am constantly on the go. Packing up the home my husband and I lived in for 8 years was extremely overwhelming, but we managed to get it done. It is crazy how much 2 people can accumulate over the years! We already have 4 rather large boxes packed up ready to be donated to either Goodwill or Crisis Ministry. I feel like it is far better to donate to others in need than keep items we do not use and never just throw things away!

I am sorry if I have not responded to your comments or had a chance to read your playing catch upfabulous posts, it might take me some time, but I am going to be playing catch up for a few days. Please bear with me through this transition and I will be back to normal, well as normal as I can get soon! I do miss y’all and I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. 

I will give  y’all a brief run-down of how things are going for me and my husband. I did start my new job and it is great! I am working full-time again which I have not done in a long time, but I am doing well. The people I work with now are absolutely incredible! We have been living in our new place for one week now and I know how to get to 3 places, work, the grocery store and the pharmacy! Pretty amazing, right?! We are still in the dontprocess of getting things organized, but we have plenty of time for all that so there is no use rushing anything! With working full-time again, I am still going to do my best to continue creating blog posts, but they definitely will not be daily. Again, please do not give up on me because I am going to be returning to doing what I really enjoy, which is my blog and communicating with y’all!

I hope y’all have a nice evening and you are feeling well! Always remember that no matter what I might be going through in life,❤ I will always be sending y’all LOTS of love ❤and comfort!

Monday to shineGood morning y’all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and you are ready to tackle a new week! Monday morning is all about forgetting all that might not have gone well last week and just try again this week! My weekend was spent finishing up packing, sounds like a blast doesn’t it!?

Y’all know that I think it is best to start off each week with a little motivational quote. I do believe being able to start a new week off with positivity makes for a great week! I hope y’all enjoy this quote and find a lot of meaning to it!be-afraid-

I really appreciate y’all visiting my site today. I am going to still try to respond to your comments, but our BIG moving day is tomorrow. There is a chance I will not have internet access immediately, but it will all come together! Please always remember I…

My last day at work!

GoodmorningwishesonFridayimages-compressedGood morning y’all! I hope you have had a wonderful week and you are looking forward to the weekend! I have been looking forward to today for weeks now!

Today is my last day with my current employer before my husband and I start a new journey in our life together. We will be moving to a new beautiful city next week, where I will also be starting work with a new company! There is going to be a lot of much desired changes in the next week. Change is both exciting and a little terrifying, but I do believe it will betoday well worth all of it.

Moving is bittersweet because my husband and I started our loving ❤ journey together where we currently live. However, where we are moving to also holds so many great and fabulous memories. I am very confident saying that with the strength of our love ❤ for each other, we can make anywhere we live a happy place to call home! ❤It is going to be a true honor and privilege to start this new chapter of our life in the home his amazing grandparent’s raised their children. 

not moving farNow with all this said, I am probably going to be away from my blog for a short time in order to get the move completed and start my new job. I do promise to return with fun updates as soon as I am able! Please stay tune to hear about our exciting new chapter! Never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!

Motivational Monday!

Monday to shineGood morning y’all! I hope you had a nice weekend! As y’all already know, where I live dealt with Hurricane Florence’s aftermath. Thankfully, my husband and I do not live too close to the coast, so we just had LOTS of rain and strong winds. Things definitely could have been much worse than they were for those living inland. 

Considering my weekend was spent safely in my house worrying about the insane weather, I definitely need a little motivation to start my week off on a positive note. I think starting the week off with positivity makes for a far better week. I hope you enjoy this quote and I am really looking forward to reading your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can! difficulties

I hope you have a fantastic day and a lovely week! I actually have several reasons why this is going to be a GREAT week! Friday is my last day at my current job before my husband and I move away from the city we started our journey together! I will be starting a new job on September 28th and I think it is going to be a fabulous job and really perfect for me! Moving and starting a new job is both exciting and nerve-wrecking, but everything happens for a reason and change can be a wonderful thing! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ and comfort!
