Been awhile since I blogged!

Life throws us so many curves sometimes we get caught up in it and we have to push some things aside. This was one I guess I pushed aside. I shouldn't have though because it really makes me feel good to share.
The last few months have been a huge adjustment for me. Both my daughter moved from out of state home. My youngest came first with my grandson and has been staying with my mom who lives across the street from me. She loves my moms house because she has a huge guest bathroom. My daughter is a Stylist and she can fit her barber chair in there so it lets her be able to pick up some extra cash doing stuff for family and friends. My mom is not capable of watching my grandson all the time so my husband and I made the choice that I would stay home and keep him for a few months and help her out til she got on her feet. Not even a month into her being home my oldest decided to come and visit with my granddaughter. They were gonna be here 2 weeks. Well after the first week she came and talked to my husband and myself and asked could she stay with us a couple of months that she wanted to move back. So it has been very hectic and a big adjustment from just my husband and I to all the kids added in lol. I love it but my schedule got thrown for a total loop. My oldest has Cystic Fibrosis which I have said before but she has had some pretty rough health issues since she has been back and that was a biggie for her staying. She was just not getting the care she needed where she lived. She is doing better and has moved in with her boyfriend and his family. (long story he was her first love reunited and he and his family have been friends for a long long time) Anyway,
I finally sat them all down a couple of weeks ago and said we are all getting on a schedule instead of this fly by the seat of our pants thing that has been going on the last couple of months and it has made all the difference. I have been able to get back to focusing on getting this weight back off and also have been helping my youngest who is now down 15 lbs the last couple of weeks. I am so glad they are all here. I love being able to spend time with my daughters and my grandbabies. I am very thankful to be back on track with my goals and living the life I want to live. I have never been more focused than I am right now.
So many changes over the last couple of years but all for the better. I couldn't be more blessed! Well off to get some things done! I will be back an updating much more often. I love being able to look back at where I have been and what has been going on. Each day is new and wonderful and I look forward to meeting each days challenges!
