On a Personal Note
     Not only did I post 14 blog posts, make 100+ new friends, & sign up for a couple new networking sites.  I also had quite a bit going on in my personal life.  

My 6 year old has surgery to get his tonsils removed.  His recovery wasn't as severe as it sometimes can be.  Thank Goodness!!  However, he was still out of school for 5 days & refused to take his pain medications.  It was all worth it though, he is truly like a different kids.  In a positive way...

My husband celebrated his 34th birthday this month, as well.  We took the kids out to eat at one of their favorite restaurants... Chili's.  It was nice to go out & spend time as a family.  With him being a truck driver, it really doesn't happen enough here lately.

I plan on sharing more about this one but I am currently planning a cute little book series for kids.  I'm not going to go into too much detail about it right now but I am happy to report that I have successfully come up with the words for the first one.  Now I'm working on the second book & looking for someone to illustrate them for me.  (Which our roommate may end up doing for me)  I am super excited because this is something I've been wanting to do for a few months now.

I also excepted a position as a Virtual Assistant.  The business is still in a slow stage right now but I am excited to be a part of something that has such potential to grow.  It's also a position that I've been wanting for a while now.  Perfect for me to do from home.  

We can't forget Halloween!  I will probably put a post together later in which I share photos from taking the kids Trick-or-Treating but I will say:  Logan (10) was a Black Ninja, Seth (6) was Spiderman, Emma (4) was a witch, & Charleigh (2) was a Bunny Rabbit.  It's not really one of my favorite holidays personally but the kids love it.  And that makes it all worth while.
If you don't already follow me, feel free to do so:  I would love to be friends.  You can find me in many different places... All the links are provided up & to your right.  Hope to see you there!
