Post never posted... is posted today. I'm back, better late than never.

Can't believe it's Jan 4, 2013!! Thinking back to when I was in elementary school and we talked about the future... What would life be like in the 2000's? Those were the days of the Jeston's we all thought we would have flying cars and time machines by now. Where is my flying car? And how come we haven't figured out how to make time pause and stop for a moment. Moments turn into minutes, Minutes turn into Hours, Hours turn into Days and Months and Years. Treasure every moment you have with your family and loved ones. Make every moment matter this year.

Today is Sept. 6, 2017 but it's, "DAY 1 of the rest of my life."  It's the first day of Middle school for my youngest. I really can't believe how fast time has flown by.  Back in June as the school year was coming to an end I decided to "retire" from substitute teaching and PTA. I decided that come September I would focus on me.  Which is something I haven't done in a long time.  When I say "focus on me" it sounds selfish but it's not.  A quote I recently read and love it,  I'm going to keep reading it to help me not feel guilty about taking care of me.  "Taking care of yourself is not selfish, it's SELFLESS.  A better you is more capable to help serve others." --unknown

My new theme song to get me motivated is "Day One" by Matthew West.  Love this song and I'm adding it to my playlist for walking, the video is perfect for me.  Here is the link to the video,

Over the past 15 years of parenting children in elementary school my calendar has been over packed full of everything for them, many day ones.  I love my kids and wouldn't change the path I took the last 15 years but I'm ready for the real me to return.

So for today, my day one, my focus is drinking more water.  I started my water challenge again, trying to drink a gallon of water a day.  I also decided to start my blog again. When I logged in and saw a few posts in my drafts I decided what the heck lets start from there.  I read them and still feel the same, so I am still going to post them.  I also see everyone 1st day of school posts and thought of taking a picture of myself to remember my "Day 1"
