Over the years its been through many changes. But as of late, I can’t seem to find my voice on here and I’m stuck. Should I delete all the posts and start fresh? I definitely don’t feel like the voice I use conveys who I am as a mom or small business owner. But maybe that’s a good thing and I’m sparing everyone.
I’m not sure what I’m even trying to say other than I’m stuck. Really, this blog is quite old. It was my very first blog and it started on BlogSpot. My oh my does was that so long ago now! I can still see the design in my head. Maybe that’s the answer, a complete overhaul in design…. Ack.
Being a parent and a dog owner and a business owner is exhausting! The easier things are around here, the happier I am in every department. Some solutions are easier than others such as buying a crockpot is cheaper than buying new flooring but it’s about that time and desperately overdue. What a strange comparison yet the situation I’m in.
Between the four kids and multiple pets that have been raised in this home over the years, I can honestly tell you that the carpet is trashed and I don’t even want to look at it anymore. So I narrowed down my choices to cork, laminate flooring or tile. Although I like the look of wood, I dismissed the idea long ago because it felt like it would be too much work and that’s the last thing I need – more work. [click to continue…]
I became a mom at a fairly young age. But, it was after giving birth to my last child, at the age of 25, that I started noticing I was squinting at the television. I remember having my eyes tested and joking with the doctor that my last pregnancy clearly affected my vision because I had been fine until then. He responded with, “indeed that is possible,” yet I thought I was just kidding. Who knew? Now you do too.
So, here I am at almost 39-years-old <gasp> and my vision feels worse than ever. I work on the computer full-time and I have a bad habit of taking my glasses off and on which often leads to a migraine. I’ve tried contacts and while I don’t so much mind them, overall, I’m wondering if lasik surgery, also known as laser eye surgery, just might be the answer. That was a lie, I hate wearing contact lenses, my eyes were constantly dry and I hate touching my eyeball. But I hate wearing glasses all the time too so it’s a tossup.
As an aside, as a kid my dad insisted I eat carrots because of my vision but that didn’t work considering I’m blind as a bat and he just had cataract surgery. But whatever, it’s just one of those obligatory things that parents feel the need to say, I understand that now. But I’m still angry about all those awful cooked carrots. [click to continue…]
