Goodness, it’s really been quite a while since I sat down to write anything. I’m not sure why I haven’t spent time doing this, but I’m here now… waiting for the words to come. This feels more difficult than usual. I can’t even recall where I last left off.
I guess I could fill you in on the year so far.
January was uneventful, as the start of the year always seems to be. It was an unusually cold winter this year with tons or rain. The kids had many opportunities to jump in puddles and get extra muddy!
February, I applied for my US citizenship. Not something I planned on doing, but now is as good a time as ever to do it. Things are already moving quickly with the application and I have my biometrics appointment this coming week. Calvin started karate and absolutely loves it! He’s made some friends and it’s giving him extra lessons in focus and discipline, much needed for crazy four year olds!
And here we are at March. March so far has been busy! Calvin is registered for TK (Transitional Kindergarten) for this coming school year, Mia has had her language evaluation for her speech delay, Curtis has been moved to a new station and I am in the hiring process for CHP.
Oh… and on Tuesday I’ll be 30… I mean 21, with 9 years experience!
So how awkward was the video in my last blog post? I can’t even bare to watch it again, it’s so very cringeworthy! I don’t think I will be doing another of those any time soon.
I need to get back to blogging regularly. Everything has been kind of up in the air lately schedule wise, but we are finally settling into a new routine with Calvin starting preschool and an upcoming work schedule change for Curtis. I’m still really lost as to what to do with Mia on the mornings that Calvin is at school, but we are navigating through it together with lots of park time, running errands and snuggles!
I recently bought myself a book of 300 writing prompts, which I almost immediately regretted for the simple fact that by the end of day one, I had removed several pages due to the fact that I hate my hand writing. I cannot look at a page of my own handwriting for long before feeling the need to tear out the page, ball it up and throw it away. Is anyone else like that?
I’m not sure how other bloggers go about planning out their blogs ahead of time, it seems really difficult to me. I have more of a tendency to write from the top of my head whenever I fancy it, otherwise I feel like whatever I write is fake, or forced. I have far too much junk rolling around in my head lately, things that are too dark, too strange to share here. I’m not sure why I am in this particular predicament right now, but I’m hoping it’s just one of those stages in my life that will pass with time and effort to put forward a sunny disposition, or perhaps that in itself is faking it…
Anyway, I will be writing more often, and hopefully words of a positive nature. Now, go forth and be bold, be brave, be beautiful!
