My Weekend In Review # 10 - Can you say B O R I N G?

There hasn't been a whole lot going on around our house lately.  I did start a new job about a month ago and it is quite tiring... I started working at a Long Term Care facility in the next town.  Long Term Care meaning a nursing home... it's not something that I viewed myself as doing as a nurse. Even though I'm not sure why at this moment. I have always enjoyed clinic work and getting to know my patients.  This is a way of getting to know my patients and learning to be a part of their life... which makes me happy.  I did miss getting to talk to patients and to use my medical knowledge.

But I'm straying off topic.... since I started this new job and am having to get up earlier than I used to... I'm not getting as much rest as I need to.  Which makes for not very exciting weekends sadly enough.  Though this weekend we did get to enjoy some time with friends and some board games... which is always fun.

This weekend was much nicer and warmer than it has been around NWA... so that was nice.  Yet the cold weather is going to start back up again soon.... sadly enough.  I don't mind cold.. but negative temperatures makes me not a happy person at 6 AM trying to get to work.

Hope you had a fun weekend... and remember even though it's Monday...

It's Been Awhile...

Well it's been a while... I decided to take some time off of blogging for awhile. The littles and my new job are currently keeping me all but running 24/7.  It's about all I can do to keep my eyes open.  I do hope each and everyone one of you had a wonderful Christmas time and enjoyed some happy moments with your families.  

We enjoyed our first Christmas as a family of five (hairy mutt included).... and it was awesome.  Though we may not have had a ton of gifts under the tree we sure did enjoy getting to watch CWB enjoy the Christmas time and our traditions.  

I seriously cannot believe it's 2014 already... who's with me on that one? Seriously crazy! 

And now that it's a new year... and all that let's set crazy resolutions and fail. I tried starting my New Years resolution early... meaning in December.  I have steadily been researching/reading/looking up ideas on what to cook that is healthier for my family and for me.  So begins the Eating Clean!!! 

Eating Clean... I am sure you have all heard of it.  But I decided it's time to start being able to read the ingredients list on a package of food and know what the heck it means. There are some scary things out there... and I have realized the more good food I eat the better I feel.  Junk food, Dr. Pepper, and alcohol are all but out of my diet now... and it did take me a long time to adjust my body to not "needing" these things on a daily basis.  Very few alcoholic drinks are consumed :)  and I try very hard to not eat out (dinner time is the hardest).  I can admit that even though it is a long daunting task of fixing food every week for all meals, it is helping me.... and I am feeling much better about myself.

So here's to hoping that eating clean and starting work outs will bring a change in me that I can share with you.  Here's also to hoping that you are having a great 2014 already and that things are looking even better on the horizon. 

Happy (late) New Year from mumsitmommy!!! Stay warm my friends!
