Cheap Ways to Add Extra Living Space to Your Home

If you listen to the news, we are no longer in a recession. However, the average family still isn’t able to buy a larger house as their families expand. It could be that we have gone into debt during those dry years and it could also be that the cost of living has increased beyond the limits…

There's still a girl in here. Somewhere....

Prior to having my son, I was a bit of a party animal. Okay, let's be honest, I was pretty wild, party animal doesn't even BEGIN to describe it. I had a group of girlfriends and we partied hard and often. And I loved it.

Then I got pregnant. Immediately, I knew that my life was not going to cut it. Because while all of my friends were content to party thier lives away forever, I secretlly always wanted a family and to be a mommy. And while my boyfriend did not want a family life, and did not stay in the picture, I still knew the kind of mom I wanted to be, and it was not the kind who left her child with a sitter every weekend so that she could party.

So I dropped all of my friends and became that girl who never left her house. I stopped dressing up, and some days decided it wasn't even worth the effort to do my hair. I became that thing I never thought I'd be....A mom. I always swore to myself that even when I had kids I'd still be cute. I would not chop off my hair. I would never wear "mom jeans." I would still do my makeup, and wear heels, and dress cute. I would never consider a shower as optional. These were things that just would never happen to me.....I laugh at that now.

The first few months of my sons life I think I can count on one hand the number of times I did my hair and make up. And I wore "mom jeans" until he was 4 months old. I'm am JUST NOW fitting into my old clothes, and they still don't even fit the same.

But, I know that girl is in there somewhere. I recently started dating someone that brought out a little of that girl I used to be. We went out over the weekend, and 2 drinks in I was drunk. And taking care of my son the next day was torture. And it reminded me of life about 2 years ago. And I realized this was not a road I wanted to go down. So we are no longer dating. And I will not be going out again. Not because I think going out is horrible, or getting a babysitter once in a while is an awful thing. But because I want someone who can embrace the mom I have become, and who does not want the old me back. I like mommy life, and I don't miss my old life. So if I  am going to date someone, he needs to be okay with dating the new, mommy version of myself. After that, maybe that party girl can come out and visit once in a while. Maybe not though...
