Working life….where I was these last couple years….

  • Up at 1 or 2 am to start work at 3 or 4 am.
  • Get to work and kill myself for 12-15 hours a day
  • Eat breakfast on the way to the first client…drive time at least an hour and half
  • Eat lunch in the car on the way and snack in between clients
  • Sweat through my clothes and get to the point where the 3 pm slump happens…I’m tired.
  • I wrap up my last clients up around 5 or 6 pm
  • Call my husband when I am on my way home
  • Get home, take a shower and eat dinner
  • Say goodnight to my kids and go to bed at 10 or 11 pm, if I didn’t have homework
  • Start all over again the next day…

I never did get to where I wanted to be, but I learned that you have to love what you do in order to be happy. God had other plans for me.

And now…Retired Life….

  • Up at 1 or 2 pm maybe 12 noon on a good day
  • Wash up and proceed to open the curtains for sunshine
  • Wash the dishes
  • Eat breakfast
  • If scheduled work on my blog for at least 5 hours
  • Eat my lunch through blogging hours
  • On Tuesdays, 5$ movie days we will see a movie if interested
  • If I am not feeling pain from arthritis, pain in my back or it isn’t humid outside, I will walk 3 miles with my husband around the lake for my Physical Therapy
  • Prepare my dinner (Our teens are now self-sufficient so they prepare their own meals now)
  • Watch some sporting event or movie with the hubby or have date night
  • Me and hubby take our dog Sage for his walk around 11 pm or 12 am
  • Watch a television series while falling a sleep around 2 or 3 am.

My favorite quote by Maya Angelou

So, as you can see, a big difference in my life this past 8 months since I retired. I love the freedom of coming and going as I please and having a great support system in my family. I knew I had to make a change because I wasn’t happy making others dreams come true.

That’s all I got for you until tomorrow …stay tuned for Day 16 and don’t forget to:

31 Day Challenge Day 10

Text_Over_Photo1564574980833[1]

   First Celebrity crush….really has changed over the years with all the new actors making their way to television and radio. I didn’t have any celebrity crushes as a child…I know that sounds weird but for some reason no one person gave me that spark. I got older and then that is when I started watching movies and I got my list.

And here it is…..

IMG_20190804_020222[1]

Oohh…lala…My list starts from left to right with Johnny Depp, I fell in love with him in Pirates in the Caribbean.  Next up, Terrence Howard, I fell for his spunk in Best Man.  Mr. Ray Liotta an Irishmen, Italian and gangster in of my favorite movies GoodFellas, he was gorgeous.  Last but not least, Superman himself, Dean Cain, I loved him as Clark/Superman and also in the movie Out of Time with Denzel Washington.

As much as I loved all these guys then, right now I’ve got my eye on only one crush

Robert Downey Jr.

Fell for him while he was doing Iron-man and then he kept going with the Avengers.  

  Next up is Celebrity girl crushes…

Jillian Michaels – I idolize her for her strength and courage.  She represents a women who has proven through it all that women can overcome how they feel about themselves and how the world judges them based on their looks and sexuality.  

Michelle Rodriguez I have admired her since the Fast and Furious.  She is a bad ass on screen and a soft feminine energy off-screen with a caring spirit.

Both ladies are beautiful and sexy in their own unique way.

Sorry, I didn’t have any singer celebrity crushes……the 90’s were a very confusing time..lol.

Well that’s all I got for now….

31 Day Challenge-Day 9

Text_Over_Photo1564574926257[1]

     Hey Hey, so this is Day 9 and one of my favorite topics is here!! Piercings and Tattoos are one of the most beautiful ways of expressing who you are and what is important to you.  So lets get started….so I have only 2 piercings….

39535983_2159235847452305_8980527443408322560_o

     I only have two piercings, one in each year.  These are very significant because I got these when I was 40 years old.  I couldn’t get my ears pierced at a younger age before 18 years old so I kind of got used to not having it so I didn’t get it done.  My mom and I were at a jewelry counter last year and we were looking at earrings and she said “Why don’t you get your ears pierced?” So I did it, it hurt for like 60 secs each ear but I am glad I did it!! My mom was so proud of me. I love wearing all kinds of earrings now especially hoops…it goes with personality.

Right now , I have 5 piercings to date. Each one of my tattoos has a significant meaning behind them.  Most of my tattoos have my kids names on them.  The Phoenix is representative of the University I attended and got my college degree.  The butterfly and long tiger represents my freedom to live life and being able to go after what I wanted.  I am waiting to get my 6th and final tattoo…..

31 Day Challenge-Day 8

   Okay, so today marks the 8th day of my challenge and I had to dig deep to find photos of my younger self.  Luckily, my dad had some and I was able to retrieve them…so here it goes.

   So, this is me when I was a baby in 1977 up to 1 years old. My parents had Polaroid cameras and a video camera.  Ain’t I cute? Of course, I could never figure out the expression on my face.  I am not smiling at all except in my baby picture.

   This was Christmas Day 1979, I got my first Tea Party set.  I think it was a present for my birthday too since it was on the 31st of December. I loved that Tea Party set.

    Teen years, very awkward stage for me…probably for everyone, though.  I had long hair, was very skinny and loved scrunchies!!

  Graduation Day 1996!! I had my whole family there, it was such a great day for me.  I was so glad school was over.  I didn’t go to college right after to become a teacher which is what I wanted to be but I did attend college later on in life while working a full-time job in 2015 and graduated with a degree in Business Management at 35 years old. 

   And me now….in the present. That’s all I got for you.  Hope you enjoyed going down memory lane with me, don’t forget:
