Well...technically, its Saturday Day...but I have Cat Stevens on the mind. I mean, really, when do I NOT have Cat Stevens on the mind?
So--I am dying my hair...but I am happy to report that it is not because I am unhappy with my life or anything like that. I am dying it because the roots are coming in pretty dang strong...and it has been over a month now...so I am due a clean up in that area.
Life is pretty good right now. I am trying to market my company pretty hard. I have a few new potential clients (I say potential, because until I have tax return information in my hand, they are not clients). I am advertising in the Montclairion and will be dropping post cards out next week. I have actually gotten two clients just from being excited and posting on Facebook!
Money isn't flowing like wine, or anything, but at least we can pay our bills. I was driving on 95 on Friday to go to my niece's birthday party...and my tire burst. I was a little upset, because I had never even located my spare tire before....but when I finally figured out where it was, I was just about to hitch up my car when two guys asked if I needed help. My angels! YES! I proclaimed, they quickly got the spare tire on and that was that. I was on my way to the party again. I will be better prepared next time. I just bought new tires in 2008...so luckily they are under warranty...the car is in the shop now.
I have been much more at peace this month. It is quite nice actually. I am not temping or anything for pregnancy. I am working out four times a week...Patric is actually working out about that much too! We aren't using our credit cards this month either. I REALLY want to take control of our finances!!
2010 is going to be MY year...I just know it!

Now that 2009 is behind me---time to focus on good positive things for the year. I challenged Patric to a weight loss contest. I need to lose the weight I gained from the past two months...my clothes are getting tight and I don't like it! Trying to get pregnant ruins my work outs for two weeks out of the month, because I don't want to work out too hard and lose my chances of being pregnant.
That is going to end.
I can no longer live my life around getting pregnant. I have a beautiful son...seriously, he is freakin awesome. and one day I will get pregnant. But, I need something else to focus on...and Patric needs to lose a bit too, so a friendly challenge will do us some good!
Of course, if I get pregnant in the course of the challenge, then I am out and the challenge is over...but that will just be a bonus. We haven't decided what our prizes will be...but I would like to see what 140 looks like on me (maybe even 130) and I know Patric looks good at 180....he has a little more work than me to do, but I have only gotten as low as 146 (and that was AFTER my work out).
So back to 5-6 days a week working out for me...none of this 1 - 3 day crap that has been going on.
I am SO going to win this challenge.
Eat my dust Patric.
