Back to the ol’ grind…

Well folks, tomorrow I’ll wake up, hit the gym, take Gannon to speech, send Carver to school, and kiss Craig on his way out the door because I won’t see him until I’m headed out the door to work tomorrow night – the Friedmans are back in action.

This time off has been so wonderful. At first, I thought I’d go crazy, honestly it’s the longest we’ve spent together with nothing to do and no where to go. (If you’re just tuning in, we all came down with COVID and had to quarantine together read more on that here:

But I fell in love with afternoon baths and nap time snuggles. Craig and I are in such a good place, we just so enjoyed each other’s company. No stress, no pressure, just time to recover and rest. It was amazing.

I appreciated the time I had to deep clean, restore, and reorganize our home, or “let the rooms breathe” as they say. This is by far the most well rested I’ve felt in my life.

I need more of the last two weeks.

While I’m ready to go back to work, my priorities and goals have shifted tremendously. How can I spend more time at home? How can I invest in my relationships more? How fast can we get out of debt so work isn’t mandatory? What can I do at home to make an income?

I fell for little moments like this:

So that’s what my 2021 looks like: building wealth by paying off debt, building my online platform to sustain an income, and a few other things so I’m able to work towards my goal of working when I want to, not because I have to.

In some ways, I think this mysterious case of COVID (still not sure where we ALL got it from) came into our lives at this time for a reason: a spark has been ignited inside of me, I think I finally see a glimpse of my purpose and I think that purpose is at home.

Thanks for listening to me ramble friends, have a great day!

    So glad you had a realignment by your time at home and that you are all recovered now! You will never regret spending more time with your family!! The days of the boys being little fly by…Gannon is almost 2, how can that be?
