The Busy Weekend Life

This work week has been a ROUGH one.  I honestly don't know how I made it through.. but here I am about to clock out of work (thank you Summer work hours) and enjoy this weekend.  It's pretty jam packed but after this work week, it will be great to have the distraction and other things to look forward to.  This will also not let me look at my work email and open up the work laptop over the weekend so WIN.

Tonight, headed to brother's house for a game night which will be so much fun.  Haven't seen a few of the guests in a long time and looking forward to catching up and enjoying good company.  Then Saturday Sophia's summer session swim class starts up again which is bright and early. Then I unfortunately cracked the edge of my screen of my phone so going to repair shop tomorrow to see how much the damage is going to be.  Hoping it's under $125, because if so, my phone insurance will cover it and I won't have to pay for deductible.  If it is over, then I need to pay deductible of $50 which is still nothing compared to if I didn't have insurance.  Phew.  Then we have a soccer game viewing party later in the day.

Then Sunday going over to a mama tribe play date.  Can't wait to hang out with Nikki and the girls to play.  I'm so looking forward to Sunday to catch up and JUST BE MYSELF.  Love that Nikki doesn't judge. LOL.  I may even show up in PJ's Nikki, you've been warned.

Then Sunday night we will be back home to watch the final game for the Copa America!!!  We are big soccer fans so it will be a great way to wind down the weekend.

What are your plans for the weekend?

This Space

I remembered years ago when I decided to start "a blog".  I had no IDEA what I was doing. But all I knew was that I was looking for an outlet that allowed me to connect with people who were in the same boat I was - the newlywed boat.  And once I found that space, I immersed myself into it like no other.  I put all I had in it.... because it made me happy and feel relevant in this world.  Now, here we are years later and I've ignored this blog of mine.  Over the past couple of months, I made changes about who I told about my space here.  Friends and family no longer see my posts automatically posted to my FB page.  I started worrying about what other people thought of my writing.  I let them get into my head and stopped writing as much.  I stopped writing about things I wanted to write about.  Then I just stopped writing.  I miss it so much.  I have SO MUCH to talk about.  But I am still hesitant to put it out there because of those non-bloggers who just don't understand the kind of therapy this is.

When I gave birth to baby giggles, my life turned upside down.  First, because she came two months early.  Then I had to sit every day in the hospital as I watched over my first born fight to become the healthy almost two year old she is now.  During this time, my freelance contract was up with work and literally didn't have a job lined up.  It was what it was.  I just prayed that something would work out in our favor.  Needless to say my stress level was through the roof.

Then slowly, very slowly everything started to come together.  I became a mother who took things day by day.  I deal with my anxiety as best as I could.  I was offered a full time job and took it.  I just try to make it through.  But then I think about the support I had before my life changed to parenthood and how supportive this space and my blogger friends were.  Seriously, we should call ourselves Bloggers aka Therapists.  Because we help each other during the good times and during the bad times.

So as I start getting out the slump I have been in for the past 1 1/2 years... I want to bring this space back to discuss life with you.  To discuss new and exciting things.  To discuss the things that annoy me.  To discuss the things that make me sad, angry and frustrated.

For those who have stuck around, thank you.
I look forward to writing about stupid corny thing and also about great things... because that's what life is about.
