Have you ever heard the phrase, “When it rains, it pours?” I always saw that on the salt container when I was a kid, and had no idea what it meant. Until I became an adult, and now it’s one of my favorite adages.
I try to balance getting too personal and boring for you, my readers, and being too impersonal. This is going to lead to the personal side of things. But I do think it’s important that we get to know each other. 2016 has been a heck of a year so far. I’ve been sick, my husband and daughter have been sick, and even last week, my husband had to take Spiny Norman to an exotic pet vet because he was sick! Now that we’re all feeling better (knock on wood), we switch our focus to helping husband find a job after being laid off from his job of ten years. That, and SPRING IS ON IT’S WAY! I’ve tried to spend almost every hour possible outside this weekend as my neck of the woods has been experiencing 60 degree weather!!! I haven’t felt it since, maybe October??? Unsure, but it’s been a while.
Another part of life that’s taken me until now to figure out is that everyone has the same 24 hour day, and there is no adding more time. So you’d better figure out how to fit in what’s important, and how to filter out what isn’t. Not to say that this blog isn’t important to me, but it’s more important to me to put the time into my posts and not waste your time with a five minute post of “content” that you can find done better elsewhere. We are both better than that, and from me, you are used to 10 minutes of content that you can find better elsewhere…
So basically this whole spiel is just explaining to you why I’ve had no content for a while. In being sick, I pretty much ran through all of the extra posts I had for cases of not enough time to produce more. I have some exciting plans in the works though – including some really fun makeup tutorials and reviews, some more around the house projects with some healthy cleaning materials, and now that I’ve finally run through my supply of LUSH products, some homemade, healthy bath & body products.
Here’s me, feeling too icky to actually DO any of the projects I need to do, and losing heart to do them after hearing my daughter ask why I’m always sick or resting (thanks for the broken heart and bad mommy complex, little one). See – for you, I persevere.
And as a teaser, here are just a small few of my many projects in flight to share with you all. Feeling teased? Great, I’ve done my job!
Until later this week, my little darlings!!!
