Dog Days

Happy Thursday!

I just felt like some random thought purging...

First of all, is anyone else sick of the heat? It is really making me depressed! Normally the winter makes me tired and down, but this heat is about to do me in. OVER IT. I am more than ready for football Saturdays, grilling out, sweaters and scarfs and hot cider. Bring on the FALL! Not to mention, I am planning a certain toddler's 2nd Birthday Party and I am hoping we all won't drown in our own sweat while cutting cake. Speaking of which, he's really into Dinosaurs, so I am thinking a Dinosaur theme would be easy and fun. His GiGi (my Mom) is supposed to be helping me drag this whole idea together, so stay tuned for evidence of the outcome. We should be doing it the first weekend in October! I'm thinking I will do a blog soon called "Birthday on a Budget". I'm always impressed with my ability to party-plan with little to no funds. Maybe it will help someone reading with their next event!

I wish my recent blog posts weren't so painfully boring and "wordy". I normally brighten them up with recent photos, but I have eliminated home internet to cut costs, so I have no way to upload photos without a laptop. I have managed to get a few from my phone, so I will post some soon from there.

School started here today, that doesn't mean much except that all the usual activities in "regular" life are starting back up! Ambassador program, Brunswick Jr. Womens Club, and United Way meetings and events are back in full swing. My small group resumes meeting this weekend, and I'm also looking forward to getting involved in some more things with my church. It's busy for me, but I really enjoy being involved in our community and doing anything to better myself! I really miss running and races, so the next thing on my list will be getting back in the gym and registering for a few.

In Mommy world, Grayson is a little comedian. He is so much fun and says the most hilarious things. this morning he said "Mommy is pwetty". I could have died. He is also potty-training, so he congratulates me and anyone else who uses the bathroom in our house "(insert name) went peepee potty! YAYYYY!". He says "I finished" and puts his plate in the sink after his meals. He swims a little with swimmies on. (I think he's better at it when he's at his Daddy's house...) He loves to call people on the phone and talk. He still goes to bed at 7:30ish and sleeps 12 hours a night. I am really blessed to be his mom. I wish I had more time with him...

Back on the Train

OK. I have NO excuses! I must make this blog a priority.

Whew! I have been running around like a headless chicken the last few months, no doubt about it. I've now been with my company for 4.5 months and am getting pretty well adjusted, I would say. I still love everything about my job including my boss(es), flexibility, opportunities, atmosphere and benefits, and am very thankful for it. I am looking forward to hopefully spending a week in Savannah in the fall to get licensed! Forward career progress is always good, and satisfies my need to learn and advance in what I'm passionate in.

Grayson and I moved a couple of weeks ago over to the mainland and we are very happy so far! The initial moving process was a tad stressful and we had some unexpected financial setbacks, but now that we are settled in- it's much easier to handle. It's nice to be away from the hustle and bustle a bit and enjoy some calm. The new property has a pool and a lake and I really enjoy it. I still work on the island and am dedicated to my church there, but beyond that I am pretty out of the way of the tourism, which I love. I have lots of new pictures to share at some point, but I eliminated the cost of having internet at home, so standby for those. Grayson is so hysterical. His personality is nothing but comedy and enthusiasm. This stage is so fun, because he is SO awesome- but it's bittersweet. I miss the baby in him, and it gets harder and harder to be away from him. Luckily, he has a GREAT father and Jay and I maintain a very healthy co-parenting relationship. Grayson has two loving homes for sure. I can't believe that Christmas is truly right around the corner and it's almost time to play Santa again!

I truly hope to start back blogging about more than just news! My thoughts (deep and shallow), ideas, and even stories...Until then...

Stay tuned...

Quick Catch-Up!

Hello everyone.

My last post was about my new job, and I haven't blogged since then! This is completely because I have been a crazy person being a full-time working single mom! I am loving my job and my boss. I couldn't have been more blessed in that regard. However, a day for me goes like this... 6:30 wake up, get me and G ready, 8:00 leave to take him to daycare, 8:30 be at work, 12:00 lunch break (I usually go home and do chores or run errands!), 5:00 go pick up G, 5:30 home, fix dinner and feed G, 6:00 bathtime/playtime, 7:00 bedtime, then it's mommy time... and blogging usually isn't high up on my agenda. I also just became a member of the Brunswick Junior Womens Club, and a Chamber Ambassador for the Chamber of Commerce, plus I still try to be as involved as I can at my church.That said, I felt like I was overdue for some picture sharing, at least!

Most recently, we had a great Easter and Mothers Day. Grayson is wonderful... he is talking and being so funny. He is now 34 inches and 32 pounds!  He loves the beach.
