So I am going to learn Spanish!!! I ordered Rosetta Stone and I am ready to learn….this may be step one to redefining myself. Nathan takes Spanish in preschool and seems to be very into it…now I can teach him too!! I can’t wait to get started.

Last night, even though I felt like crap, I went to the gym. When I got to the parking lot, I turned around! It was packed. So when I got home, I walked around the neighborhood - it was nice to get our and also to listen to some music on my iPod.

I am going to walk again tonight! I have to…I cannot have one of those saggy mommy butts. I’ll cry.

I need to figure out why people find it necessary to just blurt out their opinion, knowing that what they are saying has something to do with the person they are speaking with…like they are saying this just to cause friction and to go against what the other person believes (and the other person is being polite and not giving her opinion so as not to rock the boat…)

Hello World!

OK – I figured since I have nothing else to do, (insert sarcasm here) I am going to start a blog. I am going to try and use this as my electronic journal. I love to physically write in a journal…I hope I can successfully jump on the technology bandwagon and continue with this blog…we shall see!!

My life consists of a loving husband who is busier than he can handle, two of the most beautiful boys, a full-time job as a marketing communications and research manager and another full-time job trying to attain the title of Super Mom!

I keep stating the same thing over and over again, and I am hoping that this blog will help me find the answer – what is my calling? I hear myself repeating, “I need to find myself”. I don’t know if I just keep saying this because it sounds good but I do feel like there is another justification for me to be here…that I should be trying to find out what (career???) would make me more “useful”, or should I say “content”?

I want to learn to speak Spanish, but then again – maybe the language of choice should be Mandarin Chinese because it was chosen above French as the language to teach at Planet Kids. Please note: Planet Kids is my sons’ preschool…LOL.

I want to be the stay at home mom so I CAN run at 8 am instead of drive past the “lucky” runners and walkers on Lyons Road as I head off to work. But am I really going to run at 8 am? That is not a valid enough reason to leave my decent-paying full-time job that allows for our family’s health insurance…that is a give in.

I want to get to the gym at least 2x a week…my issue is that it would have to be at night after the boys go to bed which is after 8:30pm. That is a drag within itself, so there really is no motivation. I guess I could go during lunch but that may be gross too…
Is this just a ranting, raving complaint session? I hope that it isn’t – I hope this blog brings me to “the light” ha-ha. We shall see…
