And We Survived

Wow, I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post. So sorry to those who follow me, and have been curious as to my whereabouts :)

I've been super busy with my freelance work. Between that and Lil Man starting pre-school, there hasn't been much free time to post. Actually there hasn't been a lot of free time lately for much of anything.

But I'm hoping that we going to find our 'groove' soon with pre-school and family schedules.

I was very emotional on his first day of pre-school. I think he shed a few tears, but honestly I think I shed the majority of them. After leaving him in his room, I made a quick exit to the restroom to bawl my eyes out and compose myself before walking out of the building. I clung to my phone like a life source in case they called me. But with each 15 minute increments that passed, I felt myself starting to relax. Before the 2.5 hours was over, I realized that the time really went by quick.

We are on our 2nd full week of school now and so far so good. He seems to be picking up the routine quickly. He also seems like he enjoys it. And I am finding lots of uses for my time during preschool. I'm also finding that 2.5 hours isn't a lot of time to get everything on my 'to do' list accomplished. But I'm really glad that Hubby and I made the decision to start pre-school at 2. I think it's been great for everyone.

He is truly growing up too fast!

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
