OK, I know you all haven’t heard from me in a while and I know there is no such thing as a good excuse, but there are a ton of great reasons why I have been away.
Let’s start at the beginning, like way back in November when I shared the last post here. It happened all of a sudden, and yet kind of gradually at the same time. As the weather got colder and the days became shorter I found it harder to wake up in the morning. I have discovered that I have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and by discovered, I mean I have self diagnosed myself because I hate going to the doctor. Because I have trouble getting up in the morning I had less time for work and everything else I needed to do and blogging takes the backseat when things get tough.
In the midst of all this there are a lot of other changes that I have made to my life that have just made blogging seem like a waste of time since I wasn’t getting much out of it. In the end blogging was just like journaling for me, so instead of having a blog and paying for the upkeep, I started keeping a journal.
I have also started working out more and eating healthier which takes time to prepare. My husband and I have started trying for baby number 2, and while that doesn’t take time away from blogging, it is another major change I have made in my life. Along with all this, I have decided that it’s time I start following my cleaning schedule and so that has taken some time away.
We are also on our second round of potty training, which is draining! Not to mention the fact that she decided that she doesn’t need naps anymore at just 2 1/2.
The last and most recent change I have made is adding essential oils to my life. I have only been using them for a short time, but so far I have noticed a huge difference in my energy and how I sleep at night. I am hopeful that this will be the solution to some of my issues and that I can start waking up in the mornings. Along with adding essential oils to my life I am thinking about selling them. I haven’t made the decision yet, but if I do decide to start selling them I will make a blog dedicated to essential oils instead of posting them on this site.
I haven’t decided if I want to keep this site up or not, but I don’t think I will be updating it as often as I was before if I do keep it up. As I said, this site just wasn’t going in the direction I was hoping. I will let you all know when I make my decision. Until then, thanks for reading!
