Where Am I?

You may have noticed I’ve been posting less. I usually post at least daily with the exception of a day off here and there, but a couple of days in a row? What gives? If you read my posts regularly, you’re probably aware of the fact that we got evicted from our last home. We have been trying to make it on the income from my blogs and my husband’s VA disability, and with high rent, we were struggling.

We were blessed to find a place to go in time (thanks to our amazing friends!) because for a while I wasn’t sure what we were going to do! The donations I received through the campaign helped us move. We wouldn’t have been able to even get a moving truck without it! It was a really stressful experience. We didn’t even get everything out of the house in time because moving stuff with just my husband and I who both have physical challenges was quite overwhelming.

Shortly after the incident, though, Social Security finally approved my husband’s case and I really feel like a huge weight has been lifted. It was a hard experience, but I’m filled with so much hope that we can just move forward.

Question - Where Am I?

Transitioning has been hard, though. I shared some tips for Homeschooling During a Move, and honestly, I don’t know how we would have made the homeschool transition without them! It may have been an unexpected move, but having moved before really helped me prepare!

The not so smooth part is obviously the fact that our kids have a hard time with transitions due to their special needs. It has been hard. To top it off, my health problems are at their peak. The migraines have been unbearable even with my usual essential oils and homeopathic remedies that usually help. For the record, migraines and computer screens don’t get along.

For that reason, I’m also wrapping up this post because I have a little headache, and I don’t want it to get out of hand! I’ve had pleurisy (again – I seriously get it all the time!) for the past few days as well, so I need extra rest. I hope to catch up on some more posts tomorrow, but I wanted to assure you, I’m still around – just not as much as usual! 🙂

Here are some things that will be coming up this week:

  • I will be rolling out my 2014 Holiday Gift Guide!

  3. I’m glad the money from your fundraiser were able to help you guys get a moving truck! We have moved about 6 times in the last 4 1/2 years…and we’re not even in the military! So I totally understand the struggle. My husband and I keep dreaming that we’ll have the money some day to just hire people to do all the work for us. lol I hope things start getting back to normal for you guys. 🙂
