The pity party is OVER!

Yes, it's true. I hate to admit it but the last couple weeks I have been throwing an exclusive, only-for-me-in-my-head pity party. See, Jeff started a new job a few weeks ago which we were all ecstatic about. However, that means he takes the only working vehicle we have and leaves me at home with nothing. I've been without wheels before and it really wasn't bad. But that was in the fall of the year when you could still go outside and not freeze.

I had grand ideas of bundling Eli up and taking him outside for walks everyday in the stroller. After all, he loves stroller rides. I found out quickly that, yes, he loves stroller rides but not when it's freezing cold outside! The last day I took him out he cried the last stretch of the way home because he was cold. I felt horrible!

So a few days ago I had a heart-to-heart conversation with myself. I know you're probably thinking "is that even possible?" Well, for me it is and it has been life changing. I realized that I need a schedule. I can't operate everyday on a "fly by the seat of my pants" whim. I wish I could.....but I can't. My mom is probably saying "finally, she's taking my advice!"

I also realized how much I need other people in my life. I need women to have coffee with, playdates at my house, Eli needs to play with other kids his own age. I can't do the everyday stuff on my own all the time. This week I have already had 2 playdates at my house and they were wonderful!!! If you ever want to come over and play, please let me know!!!

I know I've been away from my blog for awhile again but blogging is now part of my new schedule....so you should be seeing much more from me on a regular basis. And the next "party" I have, will not be a pity party!!!!
