This week was the first week of summer vacation at work. As in the kids are at home but I’m still at work, so no chance for us to go Vail tubing or visiting amusement parks just yet. Though of course, I’ll still need to find ways for the kids to be amused while I work my shifts. Perhaps I can get a day off later down the line and we can spend it somewhere nice.
If I hadn’t been so busy, I might have taken them on a trip to a place like Florida, as I am literally in awe of this place, after going through this Florida Review Guide. I happen to come across it by chance as one of my colleagues just returned from a trip to this scenic beauty and was explaining how amazing it was, which prompted me to look online wanting to know more about it. I would have reserved a lovely spot for a relaxing stay looking for holiday cottages online. But all of my plans have been in vain. I’m sorry if the kids are bored, but I can’t help myself. All I can do is set aside some time for them.
Another thing I was worried about this week was finding time to workout. I really struggle with sticking to my workout routine in the summer. However this first week so far I got up every day except Thursday. I also did really well with eating. I did eat the lunch provided for the kids at my job. But it was only like once or twice. But since I have an early shift I am able to put some hours in between my next meal. I have been doing really well with staying under my calories.
This week I learned that just because I feel I’m ready for something doesn’t mean God is ready for you to have it. I found out a coworker got a “promotion ” at work. I didn’t realize that I even wanted To be considered for the position until he got it. Then it was like why do I want it. Was it just because he got it? Was I jealous? To be honest I think it was a little of both. Up until then I never thought about wanting a promotion. It would be nice but it could mean a lot of things. Longer hours is one of them and it is a great deal of responsibility. Then something happened that reminded me that everything also falls on you if something goes wrong. That’s when I realized I’m okay where I’m at right now. Plus when it is time for me to get a promotion it will come to me like everything else.
I got some reading done this week. I actually like the book I’m reading so far. There are a few things I don’t like but I’m going to keep reading so I can share everything with you all. I’m still doing great with my self care. This is the longest I have been consistent in a long time. My skin is loving it. I was sent some facial cleansing products to review. I’ve been trying them for about two weeks. So look out for a full review on that as well. I’ve also been showing my hair some love by co-washing and washing it every other week. I’m hoping to see some results soon. I’m really trying to get my hair to grow. Might try some vitamins as well.
Last week went pretty well. I can’t wait to see what this week has in store for me.
