So - I work from home.  Which is both a blessing and a curse.  I am still able to act like a stay-at home Mom because I see my kids at random moments throughout the day.  I need a drink of water - quick visit with the boys.  The curse is that I am at home, so the boys don't always think of me as at "work."  I have meetings where I am constantly on mute so the other attendees can't hear my screaming/fighting children in the background.  I have become an even more amazing multi-tasking Mom.

The best part of working at home is moments like this morning.  I'm in my office (the dormer in my bedroom - LOL) and am working, cross-eyed on reports and hear unabandonded laughter ringing through the house.  My babe playing with Dad.  Absolutely the best part of my day so far!

Working - as a Mom, an employee and becoming a healthier person.

I hope to use this blog to document my journey - in all of these aspects of my life!

Mom:  doing ok - learning everyday.  Got some snuggle time with my babe this morning - love that time :)

Employee:  doing ok - again learning everyday.  Trying to be firm and "boss like" is not in my nature - trying to get better at that....

Healthier Me:  Down 11.5 pounds!  Yahoo!
Tried 2 new recipies today, that were awesome and totally MF acceptable!
1.  Choco chip muffin:  MF choco chip pancake mix in a coffee cup in the microwave, drizzled with syrup - FABULOUS!  much better than the actual pancake ;)
2.  Choco cake filled with PB (are you sensing a theme here - LOL) MF brownie mix and MF chocolate chip pancake mixed together.  Placed batter in muffin pan with natural PB in the middle - also FABULOUS!

what are you working at today?
