What One Hour of Zumba Can Do.

I woke up very blue but now I feel like an entire rainbow. I was looking a little gray around dinner time, but that has changed. Despite how tired I was and how miserable I felt this morning, I went to Zumba with Jennifer. I know that the slightest thing can change our mood. Once that music starts playing, I just want to dance. Instantly I felt better. I love it. And Ginny the instructor is so awesome!

I have been posting my latest projects in some scrapbooking groups on facebook and everyone loves my work. In fact I had to email 5 people directions on the one project because it was such a hit. It has totally built up my self confidence when it comes to paper crafting. I am finding that everyone has paper they just do not know what to do with it. Hopefully I can help them with ideas as I branch out and try new things myself. Erika just purchased CuttleBug die cuts for the store off of one of the groups for a really cheap rate.. The groups are a great idea!

So, you may be wondering what my new thing for today was. Well, I totally went way out of my box today. Ernie, a member at the gym has been on me for weeks about how I would make more money cleaning somewhere other than the gym. However, I was taking into consideration my kids, free gym membership and helping out a best friend. Today Jennifer and I followed Ernie about a mile from the gym. His brother works for a synagogue where they are looking for a new cleaner. What do I have to lose, right? After talking with the secretary and the Rabbi I realized that this could totally work. Not to mention that when I walked in the place there was a flag with a rainbow on it answering my question of whether or not this is where I should really be. It turns out that I can work whenever I want, And the pay is $3.25 more an hour than I am making now. I can still work at the gym too!! YAY!!!!! I was hired on the spot. And, I do not have to do the intense cleaning like I do at the gym. I will start in the beginning of June.  I am so blessed to have to only work two days a week and be able to spend the rest of it with the kids. And, I will now be able to spend more time on the weekends with my kids thanks to the girls at my store. Things are looking up!!

I have been looking into H&M online. They have the cheapest bathing suits! And I am getting a bikini! I totally deserve it. Shawn calls me his Smoopy Poo with the wash board abs. While I'd like to believe that was true, he is just being nice. But I am working on it!! Yes, we watched Monsters Inc the other night, hence the nick name....LOL! He is so sweet.

Well, I am taking my good mood to bed with me. Makenna's last day of school is tomorrow. I cannot believe it! I am so proud of her. I cannot wait for her adventure to kindergarten. I know she is totally excited about it. Good night friends!

Blue Day

So I woke up this morning with Chloe meowing to go outside for the third day in a row. I am a little tired. Spring has definitely sprung. She always acts this way when the weather warms up. However, I am not the only person who lives here so why she has to only wake me up, I have no clue.

It is a blue day for me. I am frustrated, tired, sad and will just have to accept this for now. I hope it passes quickly. Zumba will help. Hopefully it will wake me up a bit and get me smiling. For the next hour, I am going to try to concentrate on the things I am thankful for. There are many. I m a very blessed person.

Happy Birthday to the best mom ever. I love you so much. I am excited about the zoo this weekend with my kids, my mom and my aunt! Happy Wednesday everyone.
