A New Year means some new changes (hopefully)

Welcome to my Blog.   I’m a 30 (almost 40) something Stay At Home Mom with a hardworking kind husband and two little girls that I love to death.  7 years ago I made the decision to leave my career to take on the role of SAHM.  It has been both the best and worst decision of my life.  I couldn’t imagine not being at home with my girls fulltime.  I hated my job (I was a researcher for a major North American stock market regulator), and didn’t really want to move forward with the career choices that were ahead of me.  I was in the fortunate position to be able to say “screw it” to the working world and stay home.   What I didn’t realize at the time that I made this decision was, how much of myself was wrapped up in my job,  my adventures before becoming a Mom, and living a downtown kind of life.

Since I have had my children I have lost myself, like a needle in a haystack, my old life has pretty much been impossible to find, and parts of that life I really miss.  I miss being able to look out for myself first and doing the things that I love to do.  I’m always the last person in my house (heck sometimes I even come after the friggin dog) and its time to change that.

I am looking forward to a journey of rediscovering the things that I love to do, and finding new interests.  Finally putting myself first for once, but still having a great time with the life that I’ve chosen.
