So much has changed here. Actually everything has really.
It all started when I was working for one of the larger reputable blogger programs as a Community Coordinator, that is until about a month ago. The program took added a new manager who in the end made my position unnecessary. Initially I was very upset because I had devoted over three years into this program and I felt a little betrayed. During that month without work as you can imagine things were chaos because we are a large family and really need the income from both of us to survive, especially because Austin is much more expensive than Louisville was.
During the month without work I went through a lot of soul searching because the thought of leaving the kids at home while I work outside of the home scares me. Thats when I realized that maybe its time that the kids help a little more around the house and become more independent so that I can find something outside of the home that will support us. Eventually I started liking the idea of working outside of the home because this means I will get out of the house more (a LOT more) and one thing I really despised about working from home was that I never got to have any adult interaction. The idea of working full-time has really set in and I would like to think I have embraced it fully.
Since I won’t be home as muchI will have little to no time to blog though. Right? Well I guess that only time will tell. I have felt for a while that things have gone “stale” here mostly because I have felt that I needed to keep up with the other bloggers. I feel like now I will only blog whenever I genuinely have something to say and not because I feel that I need to have content put up on my site. Less is more right?
I had to find a new doctor whenever we relocated, luckily for me she has been fabulous. I have had so many tests done in just a month or so, some of those tests were ones that I was avoiding because I was scared of the results. It turns out I had little reason to be worried because those tests came back fine. I did however get diagnosed with PCOS and pre-diabetes. The doctor put me on Metformin and suggested that I see the nutritionist asap.
I have been on the Metformin for just over a week now, and its has been rough because this medicine is totally messing up my stomach. But Im fighting and trying to get my health problems under control. Bonus: I have lost 8 pounds! Part of that is probably the medicine and part is probably that I am being more active. I have been going to the pool almost daily and having fun with the family. It turns out that getting away from my computer isn’t a bad thing. I had some serious FOMO (fear of missing out) but it really does feel nice to unplug and just enjoy the beauty of outside, and geez Austin has so much to enjoy.
Lets not forget that the boys start high school this year and Jayde will be in 8th grade. Those two things alone make me feel a little sick to my stomach… I CANNOT be the mom of kids this age.
Any who, I hope you’ll stick around to see what other crazy changes the future has in store for us. I do plan on documenting my journey with PCOS here whenever I get a free moment and have something decent to contribute here.
