Remember Yourself

Happy Saturday!  I hope everyone is having a great day.  We’re spending our day staying warm inside watching movies.  I’ll have to get motivated to go out for a few errands later, but for now, we’re enjoying family time.

Just a reminder to everyone, for as much as we should be helping out others in their times of need and/or distress, don’t forget to also do things for you.  Having too much stress in your own life isn’t healthy and your health is important too.

I myself have made two life decisions this week and somehow after making those decisions things feel less stressful and overall I have a feeling of peace.  The first decision I made was to start TaeKwonDo again.  I had to stop in April because the kids’ baseball took up nearly every day.  I was going to start this week but forgot we had several commitments already.  Rather than stress about fitting it all in, I called the instructor and told him I’d be starting the beginning of December.  The second decision is something that I’m not going to do for several months, so at this time I’m not going to share.  However, just making the decision seems to have taken a great burden off my shoulders and has left me feeling at peace.

Have a great rest of the weekend and remember to Relax just like Purrdy!

Packing a Shoebox for Operation Christmas Child

The boys and I spent some time shopping last weekend and this past Sunday we packed up our shoebox for Operation Christmas Child.  This is our first year participating in this event and the boys thought it was fun.  I did something different for this blog entry, I did a Vlog.  This is the first time I have tried this, so I hope you enjoy.

Just click play below.

The boys mentioned Bigbrotherlittlebro in the video, which is their youtube page. 🙂
