Hey you guys. I am back. Yes, back for real this time. This year was one crazy year. We have two months left and I cannot wait to start a new year with hopefully better days ahead. Let me just get right in. Yall know what to do. Grab your coffee, tea, WINE, vodka, or whatever it is makes you feel good and lets chat. I have my wine already, I'm set.
Okay, so since my last post I have had a lot of new changes. This year did not go as expected in the slightest. Lots of good and bad came with this year, but mostly the bad. When I say bad I just mean extremely stressful. Nothing super extreme or crazy, just lots of inconveniences and losing faith which was my biggest mistake. In February I found out I was pregnant and we welcomed baby girl on September 27th 2021. Her name is Jazzy and she is a beautiful edition to our family. Her big brother Jurvail loves her dearly and so do me and her dad. She was the silver lining and she is what we needed. When I found out I was pregnant, that is when I started to realize that living in New Orleans may not be the best thing for us. Crime was starting to get out of control, police officers were at a bare minimum, the job market sucked, and also I have no family in New Orleans. I knew that with a new baby and a 6 year old, not having family around to help would be extremely challenging for me. So we quickly made the decision to move back to Texas so we could be closer to the people that would be able to help us out. In April we moved back and from April until September it was just a huge mess. Financial issues was the main thing and also not having a functioning car. I was starting to lose my cool and I definitely lost faith in the Most High. I regret that the most because thankfully, he came through every single time we had a financial burden that we were not sure we were going to get out of. All praise to him. Once September rolled around, things got better. I went on bed rest and started my maternity leave early, Jeremy found a spot at my company working from home making good money and things started to look up from there. Lets just say it was a wild ride.
Now that I am back and feeling much better than I was while pregnant, I knew it was time to get my blog back up and running. A few updates with me: I am in a Medical Billing and Coding Program set to graduate next year in October and I am super excited about it. That is going to be the breakthrough we need financially and I will actually have a career. I put a pause on my Creative Writing Degree until I am in a financially stable place in life. That is a want and it is not a need at this time. That does not mean I've stopped writing, though. I am working on a Memoir as well as a fiction novel. My fiction novel is doing pretty well and I have about ten thousand words in the manuscript at this time. I can't wait until it's finished and I can start promoting the book release! It will be my first novel and my first HUGE HUGE HUGE life accomplishment. So, stay tuned for that.
This webpage has become my baby and I have really invested some time into it. Yes, I am a newbie at this whole website thing, but I'm doing my best. I have so many plans for this webpage and I am excited to share. First, the three tabs that I've had since the beginning: Journal, Relationship Blog, and Short Stories will be updated very frequently. I have not set days of the week/month where I will post on each one as I am still working on a schedule, but expect more posts than ever before. I am also going to be adding more to the main page and more pages in general. I will be adding a food portfolio page, a productivity/lifestyle page, and a book review page. I am working on all of these as we speak so I will cut the journal short so that I can finish creating. Thank you so much for all of you who read my blog and support me. I am so happy to have you all here and lets keep growing and glowing!
