Well, I made it through my first full week back at work. It felt good to see everyone again. It was exhausting by weeks end, but I did it! I am excited for this weekend, as we are getting wood floors installed on our main floor. It was a recommendation from my pulmonary doctor. We are also getting a air purifier, so this should help my breathing. Chris and the kids have been such a huge help to me. They have really done alot of deep cleaning over the past couple weeks. Goodwill is probably full of our household items. At least they will all go to people that need them. I look at it as less things to accumulate dust. All closets, cupboards and refrigerator have even been reorganized. Next on the agenda will be for hubby, or my Dad to Kilz and repaint our main bathroom, as the paint is peeling because there is alot of moisture build up. It is going to feel like a new house. lol. This last asthma attack has really affected my lungs this time. I am finding that alot of smells affect me. My lungs almost hurt. So, we will probably be changing to natural cleaning products. Maybe I should go into business selling them....just kidding. (Reminding myself that I am taking time for life's moments). Well, just want to say thank you again to all my friends that have been praying for me, and for all the kind words of encouragement. You rock! ;-)

Well, today was my first day back to work. I missed everyone, so it was nice to see all their smiling faces again. Still have alot of thoughts running through my mind. I dropped two of my college classes, and therefore only have 1 remaining this semester. I will then be taking a break from pursuing my RN degree. Even though I really wish to finish my schooling now, I really feel that God is telling me to slow down. Maybe by the winter semester I will be ready to get back to it. I struggle with the thought of having to slow down. There are so many things that I want to accomplish. I want to join a bible study again, do more volunteer work with the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, and FAAN. Have time to prepare meals ahead of time for my family, start running again and be able to help out at Kaidin's school. I want to be a more involved Mom. My babies are only little once. Ok..ok....so my 'babies' are now 3 teenagers and a 10 year old. Ugh, how time flies. Again....another reminder of how quickly time goes by, and how precious every moment is to me. How do I begin to fit all of this into my daily life?

Well, in the past few weeks, I have had the opportunity to be on bed rest and ponder my thoughts (thanks to my being in the hospital for an asthma attack). During this time of challenge, and I do thank the Lord for giving me that time....I have made some changes in my life, and some changes yet to come. One of them, which many family members and friends have been telling me for quite some time....is to "slow down". Well, I am finally taking your advice. I imagine you are proud of me! Therefore, those that know me, know that I have found something else to do with my time...lol. Blog! Yes, I enjoy reading blogs. I love being inspired by so many people. I love the thought that I have the opportunity to share ideas, thoughts, sites, blogs, tips, recipes and lots of other fun things with others. So...here I go. Come along with me on this journey and "Take time for life's moments".
