My favorite hobby

I've been seriously dedicated to my new hobby blog & I honestly really have enjoyed writing about it. It's one of those things if you love it than you can find the time to do it. They say whatever you spend your time doing when you should be doing other tasks is what your career should be & as a stay at home mom I guess my blog is kinda a hobby/career. Without anymore chat, the link is posted below so feel free to check it out & let me know what you think! Thanks! :)

My life would suck without you.

These are the perfect lyrics when I think of my son, he is amazing & when I look at him all I can think of is how utterly lucky I am that he is in my life.  It has been 16 months since he came into my life & I'm thankful each day for him, I am just as smitten with him as the day I gave birth to him & hope that never changes.  

In other news I have been actually doing something about my physical fitness lately, I've been walking 2-3 miles each day in an effort to kick start my metabolism & weight loss. I have about 20 pounds to lose for my happiness and about 30 according to my heigh standards. I really haven't kicked the soda habit, other than my 46 day detox from lint.

This brings me to my next topic: Making new friends, In addition to my new habits I have made new friends which is absolutely amazing! I look forward to talking & walking every night because I actually have someone to have a conversation with. My older friends in the neighborhood, of whom I couldn't be myself with have taken a back seat to my new friendships & it's kinda nice.

I love doing favors for friends, but not so much when the person is abusing the fact that you're friendly.  A couple of weeks ago a neighbor texted me to ask if I was busy on Friday night because his wife had been wanting to see a new movie for Mother's Day.  So silly, I thought he meant like give her a day off & allow "us" to go, well he wanted me to watch their 2 year old little girl while they went.  This man makes a 6 figure salary & they have the largest house in the neighborhood, however I did not get paid for watching her that night. Well last week they came over and wanted to know if I would be willing to watch her permanently since the (pregnant) wife could be going back to work over the summer. I've had time to think about it & they invited me over to dinner last Saturday so I went over & while I was there they asked me if I could watch her Thursday(today) from 12-5 for the mum to go on a job interview.  I am not expecting any payment, but a few dollars here & there wouldn't be such a horrible thing since it's 5 hours of my afternoon after all. I have already emailed them saying I would watch the little girl throughout the summer until the new baby arrived but due to my possibility of moving & returning to school I don't think it would be fair for me to stay signed on after September(when the new baby arrives). I also gave a price of $150 & to that they replied " we will keep that in mind if she"the mom" gets the job", I hate to say it but its kind of a condition with the price as much lower & I feel like it wouldn't be worth it. 

Anyway this was a definite all over post, but I felt like I needed to put it somewhere. Thanks for reading...
