My mornings are now filled with time with little Emily who is now 4. I am LOVING my new and improved work schedule and job. I LOVE waking up at 7 am when the sun is already up and being able to take my time getting ready. I love that I get to spend one on one time with Emily. I get myself ready and help her get ready and then take her to her sitter by 8 am in time for breakfast with her friends.
I actually have time to put on some makeup and fix my hair. I can take some time to actually look through my closet and accessories to choose something to wear. When I leave the house, everyone on my street have been long gone and already on the grind for a good 2 or 3 hours already. Traffic is sometimes still backed up to Kunia but it doesn't matter to me. I take Kunia road to get to the office.
For the last 5 months, the only traffic I hit is near Schofield. You have NO IDEA how amazing that feels. I used to sit in ridiculous traffic for a minimum of 2.5 hours A DAY!!! I enjoy my short commute to work so much that I sing in the car. Yes, I sing. I get on my Smule Sing app and find someone to sing with and record a song or two. On my way home from work I do the same thing. It helps me relax and take my mind off of the stressful things in life.
During my work day, I check my phone periodically. My phone is on silent because I don't like being interrupted when I'm focused on a project. It's really nice to detach myself from the outside world for those 8 hours I'm there. I can tell you one thing, my life is definitely not boring.
When I'm not in the office, I'm at home pushing my Tupperware sales and business. Working to build my team. I attend meetings and trainings during the week after my regular job. I go to church twice a week. And attend the Lions Club meetings twice a month. The cherry on top is staying up till 1 am to write my Amazon reviews for the hundreds of suppliers that send me products to test for them.
Well, my cup is overflowing and I'm about to drop the bundles of sticks I carry in my arms. Recently, I have decided to reject the offers to test products unless it's something that I know our household needs or uses regularly (like battery packs for cell phones as an example). It pains me to deny them a test and review because the products are getting better and better every day. But it's unfair for me to accept their offers when I can't come through on my end of the deal to write an honest review (though not required). It's just a matter of keeping my word.
Wow, it feels good to write again....I mean, really write. I forgot how therapeutic it is. The cool thing is I have all positive things to write about.
On that note...I'd like to send a special thank you to my family for always supporting me. My TupperTeam for helping raise me up and keep me up even when I feel like I should quit. My Mom for always being there when I need her and my husband for putting up with all the Tupperware in his face on the daily and my going to bed at 1 am because I gotta get stuff done. I hope to be in bed much earlier once I catch up on my review writing and the products stop coming.
Thanks for sticking with me...and thanks for visiting my blog and reading!
