HI HI HI!! I’ve been trying to think about how I can be a little more consistent about blogging. I used it to it more often when I started back in 2012, but life happens and sometimes i feel like it’s a waste of my time sitting in front of the computer to write. However, there have been many times when I’ve felt like writing or having a little “therapy session” by writing something I’ve been thinking about, something we’ve done or seen, but by the time I might have some time to write, the feeling or urge to do so is completely gone. So, as I sit and wait for my Pedicure, I’m trying out this new method. Typing away on my phone with the expectation that I will just copy and paste on my blog. Has this ever happened to you? Wanting to blog, but having that something that prevents you from wanting or being able to do it more often? Anyway, there’s been a few new things going on in our life.
- I survived my very first week of being COMPLETELY alone for 7 day’s while Francis was away in Guatemala visiting family. Now THAT was weird. I am very independent, but sleeping alone at home has not happened in the 16 years that we have been married 😬.
- After dying my hair for the first time EVER, I have decided to NEVER do it again! It totally changed the texture of my hair, gave me horrible flakiness and dried my hair terribly. It’s finally going back to normal… sigh. My grays are coming back and I’ve never been happier. I think that as long as I continue to make an effort to look put together they won’t make me look frumpy or older than I am 😁. I have to learn to grow old gracefully, I guess.
- We are MOVING!! After a little over 11 years of living in a two bedroom house, we will be doensizing to a 500 SQ feet apartment. It will certainly be a challenge (not for the faint of heart) but, we know that reasons for doing so are well worth it. I will be sharing a little more about the whole process in case someone has ever played around with the idea of downsizing and or simplifying life in general.
