It seems like it’s been forever since I last wrote and life is crazy, but I did want to update you guys on everything going on in my life. While this has been sort of put on the back burner, I am hoping to be able to find the time to start writing at least weekly again! As I told you all last time, I started school and I was planning on major in business administration with a concentration in HR. After thinking about it and doing some research I decided to change my major. I am now going to be majoring in Psychology with a concentration of mental health. This is something that is very near and dear to me and it made perfect sense to focus my career with a path that I would enjoy. I have also been doing some research to become a peer support specialist and I am hoping to take the week long class in August. So many exciting things are going on, not only with school but in my personal life also.
As many of you know that Dalton and I had gotten back together about a year ago and in February we moved out into our little farm house that we love! We finally were able to trade in our jeep for a new truck and it has a ton more space for the boys in the back plus we can tow and carry bigger items. Then about a week after we got our new truck, we found out that WE ARE PREGNANT!!!!! It was a shock to us, but we are very excited to be welcoming another bundle of joy into our lives. Since finding out that I am pregnant it meant that I had to stop taking almost all my medications including my antidepressant. This has been a STRUGGLE for the past week and a half or so. I am working on trying to find ways to channel my emotions and not take them out on my loved ones. I am only human though and I will tell you it has been very hard. I see my OB this month and I hope I can get something to help with my depression during the next several months. I have been doing some research on pregnancy and depression and I will share what I have discovered. Not only about the topic in generally and what relates to me and my body.
We are all very excited to have another babe join our crazy family. There are lots of babies being born within the next 9 months on both sides of my family. My sister had her baby boy, my other sister is currently pregnant with her baby. On my dad’s side of the family both my step-sisters are pregnant, and a cousin. We will be having 3 babies under ONE of my mom’s side once my bundle arrives in February 2020 and there will be 6 babies under ONE on my dad’s side. Apparently, we all just need to stay away from each other because pregnancy is contagious this year! 😊
Here are some of the fun things that have happened recently, and I promise you will start seeing more posts soon. I am currently only taking one class per term right now so it will help me free up some time to work on something I love to do which is write. Love to all! ❤
