It has been a very long time since I have posted anything to this blog. For whatever reason, I went through a really bad period of writer’s block. To be honest there wasn’t too much that was newsworthy going on in my life. It snowed, I ate, it snowed some more, I cooked everything I pinned, I ate everything I pinned….because winter.
While I was snowed in, I discovered the joy of Pintrest and every day I was cooking something new and then when the weather FINALLY broke, I noticed that old dryer of mine shrunk ALL of my clothes!!!!! Yeah, a winter of decadence sent me into a setback. The first thing I had to figure out is how I got there. First, I picked up the horrible habit of nighttime eating and because of the weather, I just stopped working out completely. So I’m back, I am easing back into running and I am able to get to about 1.5 miles at a time. It’s not the previous distance I started, but anything is better than nothing. I have also said good day to my favorite food, all fried everything and I gauge my hunger before I eat to stop over eating.
I’m in a really happy place in my life right now. I am in a space where there is solidarity, support, and love. The goons are doing so well and The Girl is so excited that school is over and she is getting settled into her camp schedule. The Boy…..The Boy is still busy. He has cut down on his meltdowns and I can probably attribute that to…….J returning from his job overseas. For those wondering, J and I are still hanging on in there. Recently we made the decision to cohabitate (fancy way of saying shacking up) to save money and I can’t front, he lives in the better school district. When I bought my house I was under the fantasy that my daughter would be able to remain in her school as a transfer student as she has in the past. This year, her school is closed to transfers leaving me the school in my area which leaves something to be desired. Living together is a huge step, but we had an open discussion where we disclosed all of our “live alone behaviors” and discussed how the finances and all of that will be handled. The best part from all of this is I will get a little extra income by renting my house out. There has been a huge shift in our relationship from the previous two years and I am pleased where we are headed. One of the great things to come out of our relationship is our blog that we have been working on, which has left little time for this one which brings me to my next point.
When I started My Life Uncensored almost five years ago, I was in a janky marriage with very few outlets in my life to express myself. The years saw me through more janky relationships, financial troubles, a move out of my hometown, new love, a new house, and a fruitful career. There has been so much growth in the last five years that if you would have told me back then that I would be where I am now I couldn’t have even imagined it. This blog has been a place for me to vent and share through the dark and light places in my life and I am grateful for every page view, share, shoutout, and hateful comment. It is with a heavy heart that I announce this will be the last time I post here. I have enjoyed sharing my journey with you all, but it’s time to move to the next chapter. I will definitely continue writing over at Wine and Kush and I can always be found on Twitter, IG and sometimes Facebook!
