The past few weeks have been INSANE. We have been going a million miles a minute. I finally am able to catch my breath!
Some of you may know I was the Executive Director of Dewees Rentals right here on Dewees Island. Well, a few months ago, I was talking to my boss, and she was throwing around the idea of selling the rental business. I was surprisingly ok with it. I wasn’t worried, because my Rodan+Fields side job would generate enough money that I could really be a stay at home mom! I mean, that would free up my time, A LOT, to focus on Turner and Stew (and me, in theory).
Well, after lots of talking, crunching numbers, praying, and more talking, I decided that I would take over the business! This all happened in the past 3 weeks. I’m really excited about it. The best part is, I can still do it from home! Stew was the one who really helped me make the decision. He’s a contractor which makes getting things repaired much easier! He said he’d go out there and do any maintenance he could! So, needless to say, he’s been out there every weekend for the past month. The dust has finally started to settle and things are getting back to normal.
I had a breakfast meeting this morning, but Stew was off (finally). So, when I got home, we were able to enjoy some family time! It’s been far too long since the three of us spent a full day together. It was amazing. We didn’t do much, but the lack of doing was refreshing! It was stormy which is the best when you have nowhere to be!
After the rain slowed down, and Turner woke up from his nap, we went for an early dinner at a pizzeria around the corner. It was delicious! I talked to the owner and told him how much I loved his pizza. Turned out he was the owner of a pizza place in the tiny town I’m from in NJ! No wonder I loved it. Turner was a big fan too.
We came home from dinner, grabbed the dog, and went for a walk. Felt good to get back into our little routine.
As I read Turner The Kissing Hand before bed tonight, I was so overwhelmed with love for this little
ok giant person. It feels like yesterday that he was this pudgy blob that couldn’t communicate. Now he’s such a smart little boy! He talks so much and is such a little creature of habit. It’s amazing watching someone develop and learn right before your eyes! I thank God for him every.single.day and want to make the best life for him!
