Did you miss me? I sure have missed this blog and that is why I am going to try and start posting again....my goal is 3 times a week, once about my family, once about my crafty business with Close to my Heart and the third time about the efforts I have been taking to take charge of my health again! Let me revisit with a short recap of all of these areas so you can get ready for a more in depth dive into my "real" life!
Family is in a transition stage right now. Leah is done with undergrad at U of A and has moved back home. She is applying for internships at the UN and local law offices as she prepares to apply for law school next fall. Ian is starting his Junior year at Pinnacle High School next Tuesday and is already knee deep in marching band. I am also a member of the Booster board for band this year, so that is something new for me. I am also still working a Mayo Clinic and now work 3 10 hour days at the out patient clinic in Scottsdale. Love having a 4 day weekend each week! I am also a super user for our new EMR that we will be implementing in October, so am working a lot of over time leading up to the launch. Bryan is prepping for his 12th year a s program director for the Ultrasound program at Gateway Community College next week. Quick, but I will update you more as the weeks go on...
Close to my Heart is still a big part of my life. Seems as of late I am not getting to spend too much time in my craft room, but partially because summer happened and my room is piled high! I did rent a storage space to provide a place for me to purge, donate and list for sale a lot of my older items and then start anew. And boy will it be fun. Our new catalog that goes live to customers on September 1st is so awesome..cant wait to show it to you all!
Today, in the health department, it is a big day. I am finishing my first 30 Day Healthy Living Challenge with Arbonne! I have to say it was a success... Proud to say I have lost 11 1/2 lbs and 13 3/4 inches!!! Pretty awesome for 30 days right!!! The great products introduced to me through my friend Lisa Ponce and the support you get through a personalized Facebook group helped to keep me motivated throughout the whole program. Leah did the program with me almost the whole way through too and has noticed weight loss and much less bloating. While I will take a break while I work on the reintroduction program, I know I will revisit this program again soon!
Well in a nutshell, that is what's happening "in real time". My plan is to delve deeper into each of these lives once a week, so wish me luck and see ya on Monday or Tuesday!!!
Happy Birthday to You
