Happy Monday! I am finally back to do a long overdue Self Love Monday post. Did you miss it? I promise I am going to explain. Just bare with me and give me a chance to explain. There has been some things going on in my life that made me step away from the blog for awhile. I was still dealing with figuring out this whole thing with my health. A few weeks ago I was stung or bitten by a bug. I still don’t know what the heck bit me. I suspect it was a bee. You can find out all the details about how it happened here. To be honest the whole incident had me put my life on pause for a bit. I was actually scared to go outside for at least a week. Unless I was going to the car I really didn’t want anything to do with the outdoors. I enjoyed my morning walks I really did. But now it was kind of tainted. I then just basically put everything else on pause. It took me about two weeks to just go outside to the mailbox. I feel like such a punk writing this but hey it’s my truth. I am now back to going outside. I haven’t gone back to my morning walks yet but I am hoping to get back there soon. I am going to get an Epipen before I do. I am told that whatever stung me caused me to have an allergic reaction. So I definitely want to make sure I have what I need. While I am not doing my morning walks the incident did spark The Husband and I walking together on the weekends and sometimes during the week. We are spending more time together which I am enjoying.
Another thing I have been doing is focusing more on my marriage. The Husband and I have been working on some things. Number one thing being communication. This recently inspired a post about how your spouse isn’t a mind reader. You can read that here. It was my first post in weeks. When times get tough in certain areas sometimes you have to step back and focus on those things rather than trying to focus on it and other things. So I needed to put my marriage first because it needed my attention. It was not easy but I think we are finally making strides to a better us.
We are also focusing on getting my oldest ready for college. I can’t believe I am actually typing those words. She is getting ready for college. She actually leaves this Saturday. I hope she has an amazing first year.
Other than that life has kept me from posting as much as I wanted or needed to . My schedule at work changed drastically. With the change I struggled to post and come up with ideas. But school is back in and I am trying to develop a plan to where it won’t be hard when the kids aren’t in school. I have always struggled with time management but I definitely plan on getting better at it. Basically I am just celebrating the fact that I survived the summer cause this one was a hectic one.
However life has slowed down and I am finally getting back on track. Summer was a doozy. How was your summer? Are you ready for school to open back up?
