It’s been over a year (!!!) since my last published post on here, and I think that calls for some explaining.
if not for you, then for me as this is kind of totally how I will keep track of memories one day. Notice how I didn’t call it a diary? Well that’s because it isn’t an accurate term for what I do here.
Except right now!
When we last spoke, or typed… read? Whatever.
I was giving baby girl’s room a makeover. I’m happy to say that it is mostly done! Phew! Not a complete screw up 😅 high five from me to me…
it’s adorable and I’m obsessed with where it’s at, even though it’s never clean long enough to see it in its glory. She wants to wallow in her bed and take everything apart the second it sparkles. But of course she does, it’s adorable!
Where i fumbled…
at that time, for personal reasons, I applied to some jobs and got one! It’s great for so many reasons. I still have it, if you couldn’t tell.
but I was also running & operating The Bounce Haus, our (my) white bounce house rental business.
and taking care of the baby, who was a few months shy of 2, and to top that off, my first day on the job was the first day of summer.
Writing that out now has me ready to cry. But that could just be some sleepy tears rolling back because I’m on my phone and haven’t slept all night.
How it’s been going…
Not great, but still great. Overwhelming, but until yesterday I tolerated that feeling under the guise of “ya, that’s motherhood”. Exhausting, which I’ve excused with drinking too much wine and not working out enough. Depressing because my life motto for the last 6 years has been “I just wanna blog 💁♀️”, but never finding the time or energy for it.
this is another one of those times when it’s crazy to write it out.
So, overall, not great.
I did wind down the bounce house business. That was easy to cut loose. I’ve started working out more and cutting down on wine. I’ve drafted no less than 10 blog posts, but haven’t been able to complete one.
Im worn out, stressed out, feel like a terrible mom more often than not, and have turned this into a pity party.
but wait! There’s more….
Where we’re going
“We” as in you & me, virtually.
I’m going to start small again. Not overwhelmingly but colloquially, like this. To get me back a piece of something I love so much, and hopefully inspire and educate some people at the same time.
A little teaser of what’s been giving me life away from the internet and what you can expect legitimate updates on:
- Our deck & backyard (chickens…!)
- my current home stitch
- the bounce house business ins-and-outs
- lingering DIYs that haven’t been shared
- redesigning my website
- building out other platforms
- My wine-mom research lol it’s FASCINATING to me and we need an advocate ok?! Also I’m doing Sober September. It’s a thing I made up in my head but I’m betting someone else thinks the same thing. Either way I’m off alcohol for September. Cheers 🥂 I mean— whatever
- Halloween 🎃
I hope that felt as good for you as it did for me!
Something about typing into the internet abyss just makes me feel at home. ❤️❤️❤️
