It's Spamama Time.....


I am off to the wine country and spa  for some R&R before the start of the New Year. It is time to get refocused on my goals for the upcoming 2012 year and what better way to do it then getting a facial and massage at a Napa Spa followed by a fabulous dinner with my hubby and lovely daughter at one of the top restaurants in the area. I am looking forward to spending some time with my man and LDG.....just the three of us.

 I love to have people around but sometimes it is fun just hanging out with your hard core crew. I have allot to think about with the start of 2012. LDG will be starting preschool this upcoming year so I need to figure out what I want to do with my 2 day a week free time. I want to start working again but I know that I do not want to work for a major corporation like I did in the past, not worth the stress and the time away from home.  I made some awesome money but in the end it was totally not worth the doctor bills.  I want to be my own boss and I want to do this on my own.  I have figured what it will be, now it is time to do the research and implement it. I need to believe in myself and not be scared to take a chance. I know that it will be hard and at times I will be doubting myself but it needs to be done I need to tell myself I have nothing to lose and the time to do it - Dammit!  My family has been through some minor shit this year on the work front and my mentality on what needs to be done has definitely changed. This must be my only focus besides raising my daughter. So to say the least........

I am looking forward to doing allot of this
A little bit of this.....this will be gone come the NY no wine for a few months.....fingers crossed
Definitely quite a bit of this - some awesome shopping outlets in the area
And finally this
I am very excited and ready to have my family around me for the next few days.

Cheers guys!

That sounds wonderful! Enjoy yourself!

And I'm looking at things from an opposite point of view work wise- I've always been in fields that make very little money (education and social work). I'm like, people actually make tons of money? Really? Wow.

It was kind of fun making that money but to tell you the truth down the line it was not worth the stress that I went through I damaged my body and my psyche....

Gosh I feel sick now - with jealousy. Napa for a post Christmas break? So.Not.Fair!!! We had the holiday of our lives over there a decade back and would be there in a flash if we could do it easily. How you will go without wine I do not know!

Have a wonderful, relaxing time! Of course my curiosity is piqued about your future career endeavors. You are a strong woman, I know you can do it!

I started teaching preschool when my youngest went to K. I make NO money but I love it. Sadly, we/I really need to make more money so I too am looking for a new path. Don't want to go back to school or anything. It's a tough job market out there. Starting your own business is a great idea.

Sounds amazing. Have a wonderful time.

Also, I hear your pain about working. I quit a job over the summer. I was making fantastic money but I was stressed, worn out, never saw my family. Wasn't worth it. I miss the money and some of the co-workers, but nothing else.
