New Beginnings

After over a year and a half of living on very little income, things are slowly starting to change. My husband was able to land a second part time job and he starts training for it this week. He works in the medical field and found the exact job he currently does at a local hospital and they are more than willing to work around his current job. The hours stink as he will be on call but we are thankful for the additional income. It will not solve all our financial issues but it will help a ton towards getting us back on track.

Our son has a new beginning also in a few weeks as he will be starting preschool for the first time. Last week we went and met his teacher and he was able to play in his classroom for awhile. He was so excited that he didn't want to leave and he asks us daily to go to school. I pray he continues to like it once school actually starts.

My new beginning is that I have a new resolve to lose the pregnancy weight. I tried for awhile and nothing happened, then we had a ton of family in and out which meant a lot of eating out. Family is now gone and I've got a great menu planned for this week so that we avoid last minute runs to McDonald's. I have a goal date in mind for when I would like the weight off and I've set small goals along the way so that I can stay on track.

I've also revived my Tupperware business since I took time off after having a baby. I spent a good chunk of the weekend working on goals and familiarizing myself with some great new products coming out in the next few months. For me, Tupperware has been a great way to earn some extra money and get some much needed girl time in too.

So, it is new beginnings all around for our family and I'm excited to see what God has in store for us in this next chapter of our lives.
