I know I’ve neglected you for nearly a month. Life got in the way and even though I wanted to write, the mojo just wasn’t there. Will you forgive me? Of course you will. The service I use for hosting you is paid in full for the next several months so until I shut you down (don’t panic…not happening any time soon) you’ll still be around.
Life got crazy my friends. I’ve been navigating the waters of UNLV (if I was on campus the day it got flooded I’d be speaking literally), dealing with a lot of emotional crap, and realizing that sometimes blood isn’t thicker than water.
To clarify, my husband and I gave my dad the boot to some extent. He chose to leave on his own but we also wanted him out. Long story short, things got ugly and we got fed up with being disrespected in our own home, often only towards me.
But, things began looking up for us following his departure. We decided to not dwell on the past and instead chose to look forward. Good things happened.
One of those good things turned out to be me getting a new car. Okay, it’s new to me since it’s a 2003 but hey, it’s big news in this household. After nearly 2 years of being a one car household, we bit the bullet and decided to take a a risk. A huge risk.
On the day my dad left we found ourselves strangely energized, motivated, and ready to take on the world. Struggles be damned. We were going to kick ass and take names, if you’ll excuse the cliche.
The car meant change. It meant opportunity. It meant freedom and independence for me once again. We acknowledged that it will be a bit challenging for us financially for a few months but we also realized how much this change was needed for the benefit and sanity of this household.
Life is still crazy but with good things on the horizon and plans for the future, we’re both confident we’ll come out ahead.
On another note, school is going well thankfully. On October 1, I will be starting a class hosted by MomComm called Content Brew, a one week class designed to help bloggers create content for blogs and social media and how to plan out content for at least one month, hopefully more. I am also looking forward to attending Bloggy Boot Camp Las Vegas on October 13.
There’s much more ahead including our 2-year wedding anniversary, my 32nd birthday, and of course the holidays. The remaining months of 2012 are going to be great. I am 150% confident it will be.
And hopefully I won’t be going 3+ weeks to post next time. Thanks for sticking around!
