2020 is Not Cancelled.

So far 2020 has been interesting. If you’re watching the news it’s been the worst year ever, we should just give up, and stay in our houses forever until the government says we can come out… Anyway, I’m not here to be political or argumentative at all, so why am I here? 2020 is Not…

Something New?

Yesterday I turned down a job offer. One of the best offers I’ve had recently. It had everything I wanted: Monday through Friday, weekends and Holidays off, set working hours, and the pay was not far off from my current pay.  After working almost 12 years of weekends, holidays, rotating schedules, and missing out on…

School is OUT!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted but I promise it’s for good reason. We are on day 40(ish) of ‘Social Distancing’ and in Iowa we aren’t on ‘Lockdown’. School is out for the rest of the year (19-20), gyms and salons are still closed, and only essentials are working. So many are bummed about…

No Longer A Family of Three!

It’s been almost 9 months since my last blog post! Instead of blogging week by week I wanted to focus on my family, my pregnancy, and just RELAX! Definitely was the best decision. We had a lot going on so there was very little relaxation, but enough to get me through. In the last nine…
