I’m Back

I’m back with another domain. On a whim I decided that I wanted a new one. I’ve just been going through so many changes that a new domain seemed fitting. Not to mention I got tired of the domain name, honestly. I have been making attempts to get things together to finally be able to go back to school. I’ve also been making attempts to be better organized and incorporate more things into my day to keep myself stress free. That will include doing workouts every night after the kids go to bed. My sleeping habits have always been terrible. I just simply chalked it up to a bad case of insomnia but I figure if I have a full and productive day, with everything laid out and a nice workout before bed, things might change.

This thing with school is so important to me because it will help me get where I need to be. I want to move out of this city so bad and the thought of my children going to these neighborhood schools frightens me. My son, especially, is not mentally built for the type of environment he’d have to be in. He will be starting middle school this year and the school he’s going to really isn’t top notch. Everyone thinks he will be just fine, except me. I never knew how scary it would be having a child make such a transition and I never thought I’d worry like this either. My daughter pretty much adjusts anywhere she goes without any issues but she’s much like me.

As ridiculous as this sounds, I was thinking for a while how I felt like I was too old to be blogging but everyone needs an outlet or a place they can go that is their own sanctuary of sorts. I’ve been thinking about a lot of ridiculous shit lately since I’ve turned 31. I’m too young to be having a midlife crisis but I have no idea what this is that I’m feeling. At any rate, I’m sure it will pass.

I look forward to blogging more often. I’ve always said that I will and then I have these times where I open wordpress and my mind goes blank… even despite the fact that there is always so much on it.


  • Good luck with the process of getting back into school. I know how difficult that can be sometimes. But it will definitely be conducive to you achieving some of the goals that you have set.

    My daughter has one more year left before she goes to middle school and I’ve been considering private school because the public schools in our area don’t meet my standards personally. So I can definitely understand your concern when it comes to your child and public schools.

    Welcome back to the blogging world. Hoping to see more posts from you! (:

  • It’s natural for us to worry about our children and we will always want them to have a better life and better opportunities than we had coming up. I felt that way when I first left Baltimore to move here to Pennsylvania. Although life hasn’t turned out exactly as planned, I am happy to say so far, so good.

    I’ve been thinking of changing things up, too. When I first started ‘dressing our nest’ it was all about decorating. I rarely talk about decorating on my blog these days. I’ve actually been dragging my feet, because I don’t want to have to start all over again. Still contemplating.

    Thanks for visiting me today and have a wonderful rest of the weekend…. 🙂

  • Hey Shannon. This is what the blogging world is for, to express and meet people whom are just like you. We can go on this school journey together girl! I’ve recently been able to go back after much time.

    I’m from NYC and I can understand how you feel about your son’s education. Its very important that he gets a good one but your a great mom and you’ll guide him with your best efforts.

    Exercise does help tremendously. It clears the mind and frees the heart.

    Keep writing, I’ll be reading 🙂

  • I can totatally relate to this post! You sound so much like myself. And I can’t believe you feel like you’re too old to be blogging. Most bloggers I know are older than me and you and I are around the same each. Blogging is definitely a creative outlet and with age comes wisdom and we are able to share even more with the world. Keep blogging!
