If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know I’m in between homes at the moment living at my mom’s place while I wait for the lease to expire at the other place. I’ll probably wait a few more months afterwards to save some money then I’m going to move into a place of my own. And when I move I want to get a few new furry friends to join the pack.…
So for today’s post, I’m going to be talking about three things that I really struggle with on a daily basis. I got this idea from Natalie from Notts in Cotton who did a similar post over on her blog.…View Post
January was flipping freezing in Minnesota. We had multiple days to bring with that were colder than Antarctic, and one of my tires popped which only resulted in me having to replace all four tires for my car. Which was just freaking perfect! And we weren’t the only state to have freezing weather but I wasn’t in those states so I can only talk from experience. Plus this meant the dogs couldn’t really go for walks outside as it was too cold for the poor things. Which made things really interesting considering Winnie will not go to the bathroom unless it’s on a walk.
Halfway through November, I was particularly forced to move out of my townhouse by my roommate. We couldn’t be in the same room without getting into an argument. And there’s was no trust or respect between us anymore. I strongly believe she stole my wallet and she believed I was making all her life choices for her though I wasn’t. Or that I was trying to screw her over, again I wasn’t. The things I did only affected me and literally had little to no impact on her but whatever it’s over. Rather than living in a toxic environment, I moved back home. I still pay rent for the townhouse… but I don’t live there. And for the few month, I was extremely down about moving back home. I felt like my independence was ripped away from me and heartbroken that I lost my best friend who I did everything with. But at the start of the New Year, I decided to look on the positive so these are all the reasons why moving home isn’t always terrible.…View Post
Year after year I see people come up with a “Word of the Year” and every year I can never think of one to make for the year. Mainly as my years never end how I imagine it would. Hell, every time I make a plan for myself, life has some type of way destroying it and pushing my life in some other direction. Or it seems like I’m going through a storm of some type in my life. On Christmas Eve, we went to our church and our pastor spoke on being resilient through everything God puts you through. As he put it, “If you are with God, you’re going to be put through hell and back so you need to be resilient to make it through.” And this word has stuck with me, so much so that I’m going to be making it the Word of the Year for 2018.
