Everything has been going ok at the homestead lately. This week, I have my 13 yr old niece visiting during school vacation. I love having her here. She’s been doing great at school. I hear she even made honors! 


Thursday, I'm taking her to the Boston Museum of Science. We're both very excited about the trip and looking forward the having a day of adventures together. It's going to be great.

My aunt has been really helpful keeping track of NoMoreRack and their sales every day while I’m at work. I'm in the process of seeing what it will take to switch everything over to wordpress. I think I'll be happier there because it looks like there will be more options to make my site ROCK. (fingers crossed!)

It’s easy to get distracted when writing posts and sometimes showing the direction that I’m trying to take the blog in is unclear. I’m hoping that with a new word press layout I can make it easier for people to navigate through my site and connect with me in more areas. I'm also considering posting more Vlogs because they're fun, people seem to like them, and it will help me develop my blogging skills. I'd really like to start talking more about why I blog and about my personal goals for this year.

One of my goals and resolutions for this year was to:

Take care of myself better. I need to remember to wash my face twice a day, exercise 20 minutes a day, and put lotion on at least once a day. As stupid as those might sound, they are really important to me right now because they will each help me with my long term goals of feeling better and being healthier.

I’ve been trying to stick to all of it but as anyone could tell you it’s easier said than done.  I’ve lost around 10lbs but can’t seem to continue to lose. I am 145 right now with a goal of 120. (Perfect for my height) I’ve stopped drinking soda altogether, and have replaced a lot of the unhealthy favorites for better choices. I’ve also really tried to stick with actually eating something for breakfast and also just sticking with serving sizes for my meals.

This week is school vacation so I haven’t been getting up as early as I usually do to get ready to get lil man up for school. It’s been nice sleeping in a little. (I usually get up around 3 to wake up before driving to his house)

I still have to work my other job at the nursing home though, but am happy that I’m allowed to bring my niece with me as well! She helped some of the residents with bingo yesterday. It was really neat to let her see what I do for work. Yesterday she told me: “Auntie, your job is really boring.” HAHAHA

So that’s basically what has been going on lately and my goals for the future and blog. My blog is called KreativeKaring because I want to find Kreative ways to show you some of the things I Kare about as well as learn about the things YOU Kare about.  So I would love if you joined me on my journey to be a better person, save money, and reduce stress, by doing for others, yourself, and by thinking ahead! You’ll see!
