I finally feel like I have found a sense of balance in my life. When I wasn't working at all about a year ago, I started becoming lazy. The problem I had was there wasn't any urgency to get out of bed, so I just felt like I could stay there forever. Then from March through July we were very busy at work and I was very stressed out. I felt like I didn't have time for anything or anybody. When I am stressed out, nothing gets done at home, I don't work out, and I don't talk a lot. For the past six weeks, Keely has been here and I have been working part-time. This is my balance. I love it because I have to get up in the morning because Keely wakes me up. I have started getting some work from home and I still have to work in a "professional" environment and be around people 3 days a week. I even started working out again because I can actually get on a schedule to spend time in the gym a few days a week. But unfortunately, it all ends Labor Day weekend when Keely goes to her new home and I go back to working full time. I am excited for Keely because she is going to have a wonderful home, but it will be sad to see her leave.
I finally got to have my photo shoot with Keely today. I couldn't take pictures last Thursday because our air conditioning decided to go out. So I spent the day figuring out when the people would arrive to fix it and making sure the dogs had cold air and water.
I have been spending a lot of time sketching out ideas lately and this is why you see so many pictures of Keely in costumes. I am going to start my own greeting card line! I am not mentioning what they are about (well, obviously you can get an idea), but I don't want anyone to steal my ideas, so I am not even posting the best images.
Keely is now 6 1/2 weeks old and growing at a rapid pace. She is going outside to potty and all she wants to do is play, play, play! Her little personality is shining through and she is a very happy girl just like her momma.
