what's new with me right now

As you may know(or not), I went through some personal struggles near the end of last year.  Struggles meaning I was feeling sad a lot, not happy with anything I was doing, didn't feel important, felt a little lonely(Mike had been traveling quite a bit and I had been as well), wasn't working out consistently, didn't feel I had any hobbies, etc.(As you can tell, I was horrible really pleasant to be around...just ask Mike)

So, I headed to Nebraska for a couple weeks while Mike was away for work and that trip really kick started my "turn" out of my funk.  I was getting re-focused at work, getting quality family time, getting quality friend time, was shedding some tears with said family and friends, etc.  All this leads to what's new with me today and some changes/new endeavors I've made:

1) My Mom came to visit for Christmas week and it motivated me to re-teach myself how to crochet.  I'm happy to report I picked it back up and am currently working on a scarf.  I like it so much that I took my project to the car dealership while they were conducting my oil change and tire rotation.

2) I started another blog.  You can read about why I started it by going to the blog.  www.HealthfulPursuitofanLEOWife.com.  You can find Healthful Pursuit of an LEO Wife on facebook, twitter, & pinterest too.  Check it out!

3) I'm going to start volunteering for an after school reading program for the United Way of Santa Fe County.  I'm super pumped for that too - I start Monday.

There you have it ~ a few small changes and additions to my life.
