Hey! I have a ton of posts coming – but first I’m overhauling this whole site. Hold on for a bit, connect with me on social media, send a carrier pigeon to let me know how you’re doing, etc, etc.
I don’t know what to write here anymore.
Life has been … interesting. I hate writing about mundane life nonsense, but that’s about what I have these days.
Lucy’s Dad has been gone for 7 months now. In many ways, it feels like he was never here. It’s so strange to imagine that she also belongs to another person when you do everything by yourself.
I got a job at NASA’s JPL – something I always dreamed of. I get to serve as an ambassador for the Association and teach the community about everything involving current/future missions and space science. It’s my dream and I am so thrilled. I’ve also been doing freelance makeup again – something to express my artistic side and get on PR lists for free new makeup. It’s worked out so far.
Lucy is … well, she’s 2. Some days she’s a nightmare, some days she’s angelic. It takes us 2 hours to leave the house most days, so we don’t leave often. It’s easy to feel extremely alone and isolated.
Some days I get so overwhelmed, I can’t breathe. I don’t have anyone who can watch her here, so we have to do everything together. With my back surgery looming, it makes any activity where I have to lift her near impossible (that includes her carseat). I work when she sleeps/plays… she seems to take it easy on me when I have bad days. I don’t know, I guess I’m doing the best I can. I wish I had more friends here – particularly Mom friends.
And so, that’s my update for now. This blog still gets plenty of hits, and I feel like I’ve tapped out on fresh content. I’ll try and be better about that now that I’m working and motivated.
Sigh. So tired – I can barely see the page. Lucy is screaming because she’s scared of the dark – and it’s 11pm. I’m just … done. Sigh. Another day, another start.
Between my daughter, my dogs, and my weird life – I AM EXHAUSTED. I apologize for taking a year off – you know how things go. I have all kinds of content in the queue, ready for consumption.
