Let’s Get This Year Started

Happy New Year!!! Gotta get that one out of the way before it gets too late to say it!

On to the good stuff.

I hate to admit it, but I’m really behind on my blog posts… (So embarrassing.) The good news however, I have lots of material! And now that I’m only working 2 jobs, I’ve got the time (finally).

You read that right. Since last April I was working 3 gigs to save up some necessary funds for a Philippines trip this year. (Sadly I’m not going anymore, but more on that later!) Between job 1, 2, and 3, I was working probably close to 60 hours a week. Hey, like they say, there is no rest for the wicked. Thankfully, with D’s support and a new promotion in November 2016, I was able to cut the cord on one job and focus on taking time for myself. Because let’s be real, if you’re working 60 hours a week there is no time for “self-care”. It literally becomes a cycle of eat, sleep, work, and repeat.

Even though it had its perks — like seeing my savings account get nice and plump in those 8 months — I highly doubt I’ll do that again.

Now that I’ve got time and I’m well rested from the holiday break, I can’t wait to catch you up on all the stories and fun stuff that I’ve been up to — such as D and I traveling cross-country in a 12 year old Honda Civic, our trip to Disney World and Miami, and how we found out my year-long digestive issues were caused by gallstones. Lots I tell ya, lots!

So let’s get this year started!

‘Til the next time.
