it's been a minute

It's Been a Minute...

Well… I have to say. The last couple months have been a whirlwind. Here’s an update and I’m laying it all out there.  Of course we’ve dealt with quarantine, battled a little bit of the blues which was unfamiliar territory for me, put our house up for sale, moved into a new house and I have started a new job, which I’m super excited about. Life can get crazy right?! So here I am FINALLY back at it! It’s been a hot minute and I’ve missed my fellow mamas! I hope you’ll forgive me for being M.I.A under the circumstances but I pinky swear to not leave you hanging anymore. I plan to work a little bit of normalcy back into our life and fall back into what I hope to be more routine (but I mean who am I kidding, it feels like my state is never coming out of quarantine so it will most certainly be a new type of normal).

First off, can we talk about quarantine!? I hope all of you are doing ok. I know having little ones can be stressful and adding a pandemic into the mix just throws life all out of whack, am I right?! If i’m being an open book, I have to say this was one of the first times in my life I had dealt with a little bit of depression and that shit is rough! My emotions had me all over the place and I felt like I had control over absolutely NOTHING. Especially…. My food intake lol. Ok can we talk about the quarantine, 5, 10 or whatever number it’s supposed to be? The first 30 days i’m pretty sure I hit up the fridge about every 10 minutes looking for that magical food that would up my endorphins which I never really did find. However… not going to lie, chocolate did help! 

Then we had the move. I cannot stress (pun intended) how stressful moving is during a stay home order! My husband and I had discussed moving for years and then finally decided we were content where we were at and then one day, we accidentally stumbled upon our dream home in a market where interest rates were stupidly low. How can you pass that up! So… long story short we ended up selling our house, which let me tell you, doing showings during a worldwide pandemic is a tricky son of a gun but we did manage to utilize virtual tools to make it happen. I finagled packing around my boys sleeping schedule and we loaded up a box truck and every inch of our vehicles and here we are! We made it and we even managed to bring both boys, 2 dogs and our turtle along for the crazy ride! 

I also on a whim applied for a new job which I landed! I will be doing a post dedicated strictly to it but I will share that it’s an at home opportunity that is perfect for moms that doesn’t require phone work and you can even make your own schedule!

While there have been some exciting things happen in my life, there’s also been heartbreak. And it’s been so heartbreaking watching the chaos that has ensued in the world. I pray that things will calm down soon and that there will be some peace in the world. 

Any who, I just wanted to drop back in and let you guys know i’m hopping back on the blogging bandwagon and i’ll, fingers crossed, be back on a more routine schedule again. Now that i’m coming out of this funk of course. 2020 has got me tired but i’m optimistic things will turn around soon. I hope that the dinosaurs and aliens don’t make their debut in July. 

I hope you are all doing well. I hope you and your families are staying happy and healthy. And I hope that we can all heal and move forward in a positive light in the second half of the year.
