This past week has been great! I've started running with Cooper in the mornings, I opened my shop back up after being on vacation for a couple of days and I'm currently on a mini-vacay with Mr. Pribs.
Why did I start running? I loathe running. Well, it was sort of a "deal" made between Mr. Pribs and myself. If he started running on a weekly basis, then so would I. After going running that first time earlier this week, I saw how much Cooper loved it and how tired he was afterwards...which only made me want to continue. I haven't run since Tuesday, but yesterday and today combined I've walked 10.5 miles...which for me is a A LOT.
My shop is doing GREAT this week. People are planning partiiiesss and baby showerrrsss. It's great. It's keeping me busy, but not to the point of insanity. I made a pact with myself after the craziness that was last October and decided that i determine my schedule. I do not allow the poor planning of other people affect my work/personal life balance. I am going to disappoint some people, but it's okay to say "no". I'm so excited to take the money I'm making from my business and put it towards saving for a house. It's so rewarding seeing that savings account grow and know that I'm contributing.
So, we've been living in a hotel for the past 3 days. Mr. Pribs has training for the Army and was going to be staying in a hotel regardless, so I decided to pack up my things and come along for the ride. SO thankful that I'm self-employed and have the freedom to do this. I choose to work for myself for times like these. 5 days away from my husband? No thanks!
so we have a couple of days left here - i'm getting a ton of work done that otherwise i probably wouldn't do at home (too many distractions). i'm excited to come back home on Monday night and get back into my routine for life.
