It's been awhile...again.

So, I think it's safe to say we can add "Most inconsistent blogger" to my list of talents.
Don't worry, I am probably just as frustrated with myself as you are. It has been about 6 whole months since I last posted to this blog. Ugh. I suck. I know. However, it has been a very crazy 6 months. That's a lie, it hasn't been that crazy. No crazier than normal for a mother of 3 human babies and 3 fur babies living in a small apartment and living with ADHD. The past 2 weeks however, have been super eventful. 
I spent my Mother's Day in the ER with my own mother. She suffers from chronic kidney infections. She only has one kidney after losing one to kidney disease. She also has type 2 diabetes. I took her into the ER after going to visit her for Mother's Day and finding her in a really bad state. She got some new antibiotics and some fluids and is doing MUCH better. Four days later I had to take DP in to have a major surgery and he has been out of work since then (about a week and a half ago). He has needed lots of care from me, which has added a lot on my plate. I'm happy I am able to help him, but I'm not gonna lie, it's been super stressful. Not only am I having to take care of the kids all by myself at just about every moment, but I am also taking care of him and doing all the household chores with no dishwasher or washer and dryer. It's been terrible. Thankfully, we have some good friends who have brought meals and helped out here and there.
We are also looking to move into a rental house soon and get out of this apartment. That would help my sanity out immensely! We have a particular house in mind and as usual, I am over obsessing about it. I am spending most of my quiet seconds daydreaming about living in it. It isn't anything fancy. It's a small one story house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. But, it has APPLIANCES AND A YARD! Two things this family has been without for far too long! I am daydreaming about a clean and organized house and lots and lots of cookouts! That is happiness to me. Hopefully this little daydream becomes a reality soon.
I also haven't been cooking as much since we have been living in the apartment. The kitchen is small and I hate hand washing dishes. So, I haven't been able to post recipes and tutorials. I was also without a laptop for a few months making it harder to type out posts. Maybe one day soon my life will slow down and I will have the necessary tools to be able to run this blog how I want. I have also cut my hair off recently. And you know what they say about women and haircuts. A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life. I predict that within 6 months my life will be simpler and happier. And I'm a witch...so...predictions are a thing of mine. 😉
