M.I.A.

I’m Back, Kinda.

Wow. It’s been forever since I’ve been here. I really missed this place. But my life has been insane. Like, so damned insane I gave permission to have me committed if I tried to take on any other projects.  There was a brief moment when I really felt I had no choice but to permanently give up on this blog. But, it’s not for nothing that I’m the most determined (some might say stubborn) person I’ve ever met so I completely disregarded that as an option. So my poor blog sat for months, alone in the dark, waiting for things to die down so I could get back to it. Well, things have died down, sort of…for now.

Where Have I Been?

What was it that was making me lose my mind? Well, mostly school. For some unknown reason I thought it would be a good idea to work and take a full college course load (math, economics and accounting), opting to do all my schoolwork exclusively while my son slept so that it didn’t jeopardize our time together. However, I did end up jeopardizing my GPA which is a personal wound I am still trying to heal. And then there was that optional, ten-week, two-hour photography course I signed up for “for fun” at our local middle school. Oh, and let’s not forget this happened…

Add to that all the other day to day responsibilities and I literally thought I was going to lose my mind. But that still didn’t stop me from trying to find time to complete blog projects. Determination, right? But sadly the blog eventually fell to the bottom of the priority list.

I literally would not have made it through all this without my husband’s support. Although I hold him slightly responsible because, with the hormones and all that, I am not in good condition to be making these kinds of decisions, obviously. And his opinion on the matter was non-existent while I was signing on for all this. He swears he tried to talk me out of it, but these are lies. I’m sure of it. Ok, maybe there is a tiny bit of validity to these rumors about stubbornness but don’t quote me on that.

What I’ll Be Up To

Well, the Spring semester is over.  And against my better judgement, I enrolled in an accelerated summer course which, thankfully, turned out to be a piece of cake and has also since ended. Now I find that I have a ton of free time (by ton I mean barely any), a ton of ideas that piled up over my hibernation period and a ton of reasons to start ticking these projects off my list. And that all means blogging again. I’m so excited!

Because I am due in three very short weeks, my posts will be a little inconsistent as I navigate recovering from giving birth, mothering two very young children, being a wife and returning to work. But I’m really excited to have the opportunity to post at all.

Some things to keep your eye out for:

  • Repainted hand-me-down nursery furniture
  • Numerous DIY nursery décor projects
  • China cabinet a face lift
  • DIY abstract art
  • Updated secretary desk (curb side find)
  • My weight loss journey reboot

See you soon!
