It is what it is!

When I climbed into bed last night I thought about getting up to write but was exhausted, so I slept well and here I am tonight.

I was thinking about this saying today, "It is what it is." It seems to have two meanings to me today. In one sense you should be content with what you have if you take it for what it is and enjoy every day. In another, don't read into things. Really, it is what it is. Don't make something out of nothing.

Sometimes I've found that I really need to remember this before I open my mouth. Nothing good can come from when you don't think before you speak. That's my two cents for today.

We had Karoline's 6 month appointment today. She weighed 15 lbs 9 oz, 50th percentile; length: 25 1/2", 25th percentile; head: 43 cm, 75th percentile. She is one smart girl! She handled her shots so well, I was really proud of her. She only cried while she was getting the shots, as soon as she was picked up she was fine and even gave the nurse a smile. Our poor nurse, she said that some parents blame her for causing their child pain. Some people!

This afternoon I had fun spending time with Karoline, we played and read books. She held up pretty well for having shots and even took an hour long nap. We got to FaceTime with my mom, such a neat way to be able to feel connected. Sometimes it's a double edged sward though. Often times it's great to be able to see each other, but pushing "hang up" is painful. Thank goodness we only live 2 1/2 hours away, any longer and it would be very difficult.

I am pretty excited about being an Independent Consultant for Pampered Chef! I'm doing really well and already have two shows booked for December and January! I feel like this is a way for me to use my degree. With a background in communications I am able to really do quite a bit with promoting my personal business. I know I could even be doing more. However, I'm still only doing "business" while Karoline is asleep. She comes first and that is how it will always be. But, I know that I will get into a routine and I'll be able to do more if I wish to.

I've decided I would like a new wardrobe and a new look. I need to make sure I feel pleased when I look in the mirror or look back on pictures. A couple new tops would help. My shirts all are very warn out looking. I also want to get a new brand of make up when it goes on sale next time!

Last words of wisdom, "Say what you mean, and mean what you say." I supposed I better learn this now versus later on in life. Instead of trying to get people to know what you are thinking, tell them. This goes for everyone in your life. Don't beat around the bush, be open to rejection if your approach isn't well received. At least then you know you were straight forward.

There are very few things that I wish I could do over again. About the only thing I can think of is my choice for college. I wonder what it would have been like to have gone to a college with a performing arts program. I really didn't even think of that as an option. I know that if anything in my life would have been different I might not be where I am today. When I was younger I always thought I had to do something received by the masses with my life to feel complete and accomplished. I feel more complete looking into this sweet then I ever have. She's makes my life just right.
