It’s Tuesday and I can’t believe we only have one more week left in this month. Literally flown by!!!
I’ve spent the majority of my day posting items on Ebay. Do any of you sell on Ebay? If so, does it take you forever? I feel like it takes me so long to create a single listing. Regardless, I love doing it. After I post an item and start seeing how many views it has I want to start finding other things to list. Now, hours later I have about 8 things listed. I promise before the day is up there will be more 🙂
Part of my sudden urge to make a little money comes from the guilt I have from our most recent vet bill. When we moved into the new house my husband suggested getting a couple of outdoor cats to take care of any pests issues we might come across. We have acreage so plenty of room for them to roam. I had cats growing up but wouldn’t really consider myself a cat person. I love animals I just didn’t really want the shedding in the house so I went along with this idea. I went to the shelter and picked out a boy and girl (siblings).

The kids named them Bo & Arrow (I know minus the ‘w’). Well wouldn’t you know I would pick out a deaf cat? Nothing wrong with this unless you plan on keeping her outside. So, from the very beginning I have found myself bringing the cats into the garage every night (which means im also changing a litter box 🙄). This not so much a cat person is in loooove. So much in love that I accidently leave the house door open every single day. Anyway long story short, we had an event one evening and weren’t home to put them in the garage at the usual time. Arrow (white kitty that can’t hear) was nowhere to be found when we got home. I searched until 2:am. No luck. She showed up at the door around 11:00 the following evening with her little mouth ripped open. I took her to the vet the next morning and we still have no clue what she got into. The most popular guess was barbed wire 😦 So you know what happened next right? Cha Ching, Cha Ching $$$$.
My husbands way of thinking is they are cats, they are outside, let them be. So now these cats that he wanted to just let be are a lot more than he/we anticipated. She still has several follow up vet visits (including another surgery). Now you get my sudden urge to put some of this money back. He doesn’t know the actual dollar amount already spent at the vet, and he doesn’t need to. I’d like to stay married to him for at least a little while longer 😉
This baby ….

Deciding to blog again wasn’t an easy decision. Even as I typed yesterdays post I still had my doubts and honestly, I wasn’t even sure I would hit publish once I finished. Can I just say I’M SO GLAD I DID 🙂 You all sure know how to make somebody feel good!!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the sweet messages. I can’t tell you how much it means to me. We all have trying times and we all go through things that nearly break us, but how lucky am I to have so much support?! I’m so, so grateful !!
The truth is, there will always be someone out there in this cyber world that wakes up each day with a hateful agenda. The difference this time around is i’m prepared 🙂
Thank you again for all the love.
I know, its been a while!! I’m just going to dive right in and be completely honest with you. I got my feelings hurt. I knew that we lived in a cruel world and I knew putting myself out there I was going to be taking that chance, but I thought I could handle it. My favorite part of the blog world was connecting with people. I loved and lived for your comments and messages. I loved waking up everyday to someone asking me a question or hearing that you tried something that I shared and it worked for you. Loved it! The more you shared the more followers I received. That’s a good thing. The more people I could connect with, the more exciting it was for me. Unfortunately, people take this whole freedom to say whatever I want world we live in to a level I don’t understand. People feel like it’s ok to judge and/or say hurtful things when really nobody asked. Why is that? If you post something on Facebook that I think is hideous, I am not going to tell you. Why would I? If you like it that’s all that matters. Did you post a picture of you and your husband and caption it with, “Tell me if you like this shirt or not?” No, you didn’t. Therefore, it’s not my place to tell you that you could do better 😉 If you have a lot of freckles who am I to have a problem with that? Well, apparently some people do. God gave me lots and lots of them and there isn’t anything I can do about it, right? So telling me I would be pretty IF I didn’t have so many is one of those things that you are more than welcome to keep to yourself. Told you I was going to dive right in 😉 So you get the picture… I got my feelings hurt. I was going through several rough patches at the time this started. I was buying a new house and going through the packing up process, I didn’t have one of my best friends in the whole wide world to vent to, and I was having some health issues. It was just bad timing so I took it pretty hard. That wasn’t the only thing said. I found myself blocking a few people a week. Yes, I’m serious!! Look, I loved getting the feedback. I loved just hearing hello. But, when someone sends me a message telling me I must suck at being a parent to my kids because I’m so consumed with buying clothes or fixing my hair, it hurts. Even though I know thats ridiculous and not true, it still made me sick to my stomach.
I did what I do best and questioned what I was doing and why a million times. I eventually just stopped and felt at peace. We moved, the kids started a new school, and things started feeling a lot better. The problem is, I loved having the blog and being able to connect with you all. I genuinely liked it! So I missed it. I’ve thought about starting it back up a dozen times but just let it fizzle out. Until now.
I want to reconnect. I don’t really have a plan. I don’t know how I want to do this or what I want to talk about, I just know that I want to start talking to you all (well most of you all) again. I have prayed enough now to know that I can take it. I know that people have all kinds of things going on in their lives and for some unfortunately they feel better when they can bring others down. To those people, I am praying for you. I am praying for you every single day, multiple times a day. The only way you can hurt me is by making me feel sorry for you and the sad, lonely, life you must be living.
The moral of the story is be nice. Just be nice. Be nice. BE NICE !
Have a great Friday!!!!
