I’m not sure if I should be welcoming you or myself back here lol!
It’s been a while since I published anything on the blog. In fact, I left it on Currently post in March and I’m jumping back in again with a currently post.
It’s been a while since I’ve sat down to write anything.
It’s been a crazy three months, extremely eye opening as well as difficult to process.
If you haven’t seen the last couple of posts I added to my social media accounts, you’re probably sitting and wondering what the hell I’m talking about.
No stress – here’s a quick run down.
In April, some things happened, which I won’t go into detail with, which caused (forced) me to take a good hard look at myself. After setting up an appointment with a psychologist to figure out what was going on, she was able to give us a diagnosis – chronic depression.
It didn’t hit home immediately because who wants to admit to anyone, let alone themselves, that there’s a problem with them. After the initial diagnosis was made and I was ready to brush it off as no big deal, the Doc suggested booking myself as an in-patient at the psychiatric clinic for a while so that we would work down to the root of my depression and start finding a path to healing. I’ll share a little more about my experience a little later this month.
Last month we moved to a new home and guys, I love it here. We all do.
As I mentioned in one of my older social media posts, this house is like a breath of fresh air because it’s unfamiliar. The previous one was laid out exactly the same way as my in-laws was when they lived there because it was kind of the only way to lay the furniture out. So while it was home, it didn’t feel ‘new’ when we moved there.
Being in a completely other setting, I can arrange all our things differently. It’s a bit of an adventure, figuring out where what will be and what looks good where (as you might understand from that, I’m not entirely done unpacking yet. I’m getting there.. Like art, it’s a work in process.)
Just before we moved, Hubby Byren went to Munich, Germany, on a business trip and boy, was I jealous because it’s Germany! First France, now Germany – two countries on my bucket list! Waaaah!
He’ll be doing a lot more traveling with his new company, with another trip coming up this month to Germany again, but this time to Meiningen. While I’ve adapted to being alone with the kids now, it’s still pretty sucky when he’s gone.
We celebrated Gremlin’s fourth birthday in June. Four??? When did that happen?? Just kidding! I know he’s growing up, just like the other two. I mean, Monster is turning seven this month. I can’t believe I’ve been a mama for so long already. Guys, when the nights are long, that time-frame also feels a lot longer!
Gremlin’s current worry is the fact that his teeth aren’t falling out and no Tooth-Fairy is visiting, while Monster’s two top teeth are wobbling like crazy, and his permanent bottom teeth are almost completely out. Again, seven!!! Cay is being Cay; goofy, fiery and chatty. She has a vocabulary of 13 words already and every day there’s something new with her: a sound, a dance move or her love for walking into a room and scaring you.
Currently, life is good. As everything, there are good days and there are the bad. The only difference is knowing how to balance the bad ones out to make them a little easier to manage.
How have you been? What’s been happening in your life?
