“I love my work, I love the people I work with, I do the best I can.” ~Mandy Patinkin

I consider myself really lucky every single day. Not only do I have three healthy kids, a wonderful husband and many good friends and some close extended family, but I also have the luxury of getting paid to do what I love.

That doesn’t mean I don’t work hard–I do. In fact, I probably work more hours than you’d expect. But I get to work from home, most of the time, and again–I get paid to do what I love, so it doesn’t (always) feel like work.

Anyway, since I’m so busy doing what I love (including my work and taking care of my family), it’s been awhile since I’ve updated here.

So, here’s what I’ve been up to lately.

In other news…

  • I’m very close to meeting an incredible goal. This is one more secret I’ll have to keep for now, but in the meantime, I’ll tell you one little bit of it: when I meet this goal, there will be a book that will explain it all. My hope is to help others reach such a goal. That’s all I can give you on that, for now, but keep an eye out for an announcement in the next couple of months with more details.
  • I’d like to offer kudos to one of my Patch.com colleagues, Creve Coeur Patch editor Gregg Palermo. Gregg will be co-hosting a candidate forum in his “patch” on Thursday. This is kind of a big deal, if you ask me, and I’m excited that Gregg and his Patch have such a great opportunity to play such an important role in his community.
  • Speaking of Patch, if you own a business in the St. Louis area, don’t forget to claim your business listing on the Patch site nearest you. It’s free!
  • Unrelated to my writing: my four year old daughter recently got glasses. I had her eyes checked  just because the rest of the family was having it done, and honestly didn’t expect to hear anything was wrong, considering that her pediatrician had given her flying colors on the in-office test she’d taken awhile back. When I learned she really needed glasses from our eye doc, I cried a little, because I wished I’d have known sooner. Still, I’m glad we found out this early. She is now doing great with them, and we even secured a backup pair so she won’t have to go without. But a tip for parents of little ones: the eye tests the pediatrician gives won’t tell you if your child needs glasses or not, only if they can see very basic things. My daughter has a pretty hefty prescription now, even though the pediatrician’s test found that  her eyesight was just fine. So, if you have any doubt at all (and believe me, I didn’t), get your child’s eyes checked by an optometrist. It can’t hurt.

That’s all I’ve got for now. All in all, life is good, work is good and the family is well. I can’t complain even a little bit. Here’s to taking it to the next level! I’ll be back soon with another update. 🙂
