Autumn Has Arrived In Alberta

I can't believe that is the second week of September! It feels and looks like fall in our little town already - the trees are changing, the nights are cold, and the sun is setting early now. It isn't even official yet, but I guess no one told mother nature.

Marc is back to school, and I have been home. This is the beginning of my second week and I have felt really accomplished. Since we are trying to save money, I am mainly at home during the day. Cleaning and cooking have become apart of my daily routine and I'm getting really good at being a "house wife." I even rearranged our entire pantry today. 

I know that for most people, that would be a boring day. I, however, have really been enjoying being at home. The one thing that I've noticed is how relaxed I feel. I am making healthier choices when it comes to meals and snacks. I am making sure I drink lots of water, too. I think this all has helped my overall well-being and I feel great. I honestly didn't think I would be happy being at home, but it has given me lots of time to reflect on my life and what my next steps will look like. I am welcoming this time as an opportunity to really figure out what I want to do with my life and career, and am thankful that we are able to afford for me to be at home.
