Sunday drive in upstate NY


Yesterday was Easter and for the first time Mike and I decided to go out for dinner and just hang by ourselves. The boys were with their father on their way down to Florida. I’m so happy for them! First vacation he has ever taken them on. Anyway, I caught what Matt is just getting over. Feels like the flu or something viral as the doc called it. Horrible. So that just summed up my day but we made the most of it.

We laid low, ate dinner at Lanzi’s on the Lake. Sacandaga Lake to be exact. It was a relaxing time and great food.

I didn’t get any pics from the scenery or what we ate because I wasn’t feeling too hot but I did get some pics of the sunset that I was able to get on our drive home.

I hope you all had a great holiday in spite of all the craziness that is taking place in this world that we live in.

Keep it simple and it’ll stay real.

Staying motivated on days like this


It’s Friday and it’s been a long week. The kids are ready for a vacation and so are we.

I haven’t slept the past few nights because my mind has been going nonstop. I have taxes left to do besides our own. I’ve been subbing everyday and it snowed again last night lol.  Yes snow in upstate NY one more time.

It’s time to regroup and get with the program.  The key is to get back on track.  Stay focused and gave a purpose in life. Am I saying this for you or me? Today it’s a little bit of both.

Keep moving. If I can so can you.

I love Googling quotes and finding ones like this.   It’s simple and yet couldn’t be more true.  Love and appreciate the little things in life like your beating heart. Once you recognize this gift, everything else will come a little bit easier.

Waiting….


It seems like a good portion of our lives we are always waiting. Waiting at my doctors appointment(like I am now), waiting to hear if I got the job interview I am hoping for, waiting to see if we are getting anymore snow lol, just waiting.  Muggy sitting on the couch, waiting lol. 

Thank God for the internet! Lol

Happy Valentines Day!! ❤️❤️❤️

How to accomplish your goals and defeat self sabotage.


 Day after day you think to yourself, I can’t get out of this rut and I’m not going anywhere in life. My job is a dead end and I’m always broke.  The relationships I have with others make me depressed and angry.  I feel like I am empty and running on fumes.  

This doesn’t have to be.  The choice is yours to start making a change.  End the cycle by taking the first step. Be realistic and don’t overwhelm yourself by setting a goal that needs time to develop.  

Any goal you want to reach needs a plan. Whether it’s big or small you have to start somewhere. 

I know when my brain starts brewing up an idea or a goal to accomplish, if i don’t start the process with a small step, it’ll never happen. 

First of all whatever goal you want to accomplish use the resources around you to see how others accomplished their goals.  When I wanted to organize my bathroom, I Googled “How to organize your bathroom.”  It’s really that simple. Now on a larger scale I wanted to become a teachers assistant in NY, what did I do? I Googled, “How to become a teachers assistant in NY.”

You have to start somewhere and if you’re anything like me, you’re going to need some help with starting off in the right direction.  If you don’t know, then just ask. 

I can give you so my instances in my life that I needed direction on how to accomplish a goal but the list is never ending. What I want to express to you is that anything is possible but start small so you don’t sabotage yourself or idea by stressing out over it. 

1. Start small. Get a piece of paper and pen, and write down what it is you want to accomplish. Having it written down your more apt to staying on track rather than keeping the thought in your head that will probably be forgotten or pushed aside. 

2. Research on “how to.” If there are others writing about it because they’ve done it, then that’s the type of references you want to follow.  Everyone is different but if you take bits and pieces of how people accomplished their goals, then your bound to come up with a plan that’ll work for you. 

3. Set your wheels in motion. Follow the steps and review your goals each day.  Repetition works great for me and it could help you. 

Every goal needs a plan. Write the goal down that you want to accomplish. Make a plan and start the process small.  

Good luck and if you need a pep talk, I’m your cheerleader!!
