When life brings you ups and downs, (and more importantly the downs) I always wish I could go back 10 years and tell my 20 year old self some things about the world. I could say love your body more but I’m actually healthy and thinner than I was back then so that wouldn’t work ha ha. Seriously though, if I could these are the things I would say:
1.) Save, save, save (even now that’s something that is so important.)
2.) Don’t use credit cards if you can help it.
3.) Don’t buy a house in 2007 (we bought just before the financial recession, huge mistake.)
4.) TRAVEL more! We are fortunate to have travelled throughout the UK, Europe and South Africa. But it’s much harder when you have kids.
We learn from our mistakes (boy do I know this) and you’ve just gotta take one day at a time. You’ve also gotta try and appreciate all you have, even little things.
So Thursday was the first day that I started taking less Lupron (now it’s 5 units.) I also began taking baby aspirin and the Vivelle patches at night. The picture of the patch is of my right hip. No major side effects yet (knock on wood) except bruises where the needle goes in and some weight gain.
I absolutely love pinterest. There are so many cool ideas there, beautiful houses, gardens, rooms, landscapes ect. I found so many great ideas for redoing our eldest’s bedroom. I love the city/hero themes they have. Caleb is not that impressed but I’ll try and convince him (yeah right!). I do want to look and try and find some fun kids projects that we can all do. One that I’ve wanted to do for ages is the rainbow Crayola canvas. Where you glue a box of Crayola colors in color order at the top of a canvas and melt them with a hairdryer so the colors rundown and make a beautiful collage of colors. That’s not really something the kids can do, but more for me to do for their rooms.
We're having a food/health consultant/chef stopping by today to talk about food and things to make. Hopefully it will be a positive experience
