Hi all Mindful Geeklings!!
Life has been pretty crazy for me for the last few years. A Mindful Geek fell to the way side simply because I couldn’t juggle it all. Juggling school, full time job, mom, girlfriend, pet momma…it was just all too much. But life has slowed down enough for me to continue writing for you all. So we will start with a journal entry.
I left my job that I announced that I got after 9 months. It was just all too much for me. I was working 10 hours a day not including travel and meeting. I was a manager of my own store and the district trainer, which was great. But I missed my family too much. I missed life too much. So I got an 8 to 5 job which has been amazing despite the ups and downs. Currently I am in a down because I am on medical leave and disability due to 2 bulging discs in my back. I will be back at the end of the month.
My boyfriend has now changed to a husband. We were married on July 20th, 2019 in St. Augustine, FL. It was a beautiful wedding on the beach and we had an amazing reception. Planning was a pain because I do live in NJ, but it was all worth it. It came together nicely. And anything that didn’t, just didn’t matter. I was marrying the love of my life. The day after we took my daughter and best friend to Disney World, staying in the Animal Kingdom resort. We had some Disney Magic that is for sure. Day after that…we went on the most amazing 5 day cruise. We had the time of our lives those two weeks in FL.
My daughter is doing well. She is now 11 going on 17. Haha. She has become an amazing artist and surprises me every day. Raising a pre-teen is hard, I can tell you that. They do not listen and its hard to not lose your shit sometimes. And sometimes you do. We try our best to be mindful of her age and what she is going through though. She is becoming a beautiful, talented and smart young woman. I cannot wait to watch her grow but on the other hand, they grow too fast.
As far as the blog, I plan to continue with it because I need it. I need it for self-care and I want to share my life with all of you. So please be patient with me as I build it back up. All past posts are available though.
Thank you for reading,
