So with the new year came some goals, as my January post stated, one of those goals was writing and maintaining this Blog. Well that didn’t happen!! But as with anything in life, I’m willing, able, and wanting to give it another shot.
It’s now October and it’s amazing how many things have changed since my first post, both professionally and personally. Professionally I took a giant leap and created Team Roycroft, with the addition of Anna Dunbar as my buyer’s agent. She has been amazing! Her positive attitude and eagerness to help our clients really solidified my choice in growing into a team. We have first hand knowledge of the ever changing market and which area’s were hit most by the government interventions and which markets have been the quickest to start to stabilize. We also moved into a larger office – it even has a window!!! It really is amazing how much having a window impacts how much paperwork I can now get done.
Personally, I now have an almost full grown man (he would hate it knowing that I just wrote that!) who is graduating from high school this year. This alone feels crazy to me, especially since my little guy is just starting out in grade 1. Then there’s my girls who are inspiring me as they are growing into independent young women who are taking on the world! My big guy, he’s started on our forever talked about renovations. I really don’t know why I tell clients if you are doing major reno’s it’s probably best to find some where you can stay while they are being done but thought that my family would be different and we could live in the house while it’s in pieces! We have really only done the prep work so far and I’m already going crazy. Finally, there’s me, since the big 40 happened this year I challenged myself to take better care of me and actually mean it. With that I’ve started boxing, yes my gloves might be pink but I assure you I know exactly how to use them, and I’m running again. I’m starting to feel like I did before I had babies!! I know that sounds crazy but it’s true.
Well with that I am re-committing to maintaining this Blog and I hope that you follow along with us on this crazy roller coaster of work life balance that I’m still trying to achieve
