Today is a good day and you don’t know how good it feels to say that. You might’ve noticed that I’ve been absent for the past couple of weeks, and that’s because (in short) life has been really, really hard lately. I don’t know if it’s because we have bad luck or because Mercury is doing it’s thing, but our little family were shown first hand that when it rains… it pours.
I’ll break it down for you, quickly. We spent almost a week in the hospital, and are barely keeping our head above water when it comes to bills… and I mean by literal pennies. It’s hard to be sick, AND so broke you have to decide if you need to go to the doctor, or buy groceries this week.
In the last few days, the clouds finally parted for us and the sun started shining and we were shown first hand, what struggle can do for you, in a positive way. Eric’s finally getting a scope done this Friday to fix his stomach, we finally get Baby Boy again, I get to see my best friend for the first time in a month, and the kicker? After being unemployed for over 2 years now, I got a job! YEAH BABY! I’m going back into my profession of being a hairstylist and starting at a salon next Monday. (Come get a haircut!) All of these things, good and bad, have made us/me/Eric stronger. And even though we’re still digging ourselves out of this hole, I can confidently say that we’re going to make it and things are finally looking up.
Life is really hard. It just is. But there’s something so calming about seeing the end of this long, bumpy road and I couldn’t be happier. Our family is finally on its way to achieving our dreams! So get ready to hear about work outfits! Get ready to see a lot more of Eric and Todd! And get ready for regular posts, from now on, because nothing’s stopping me now.
