They say everything is bigger and better in Texas but so far I beg to differ. It’s been a rough go for me here.
It’s always hard to move but it’s been especially hard for us this year. We have moved 4 times in three completely different states this year: Hawaii, Missouri, and now Texas. Not just the packing, moving, and unpacking but finding new doctors, HAIR DRESSERs, dentist, vet, favorite restaurant, grocery store, etc…. while trying to make friends and keep adulting. Also let’s talk about finding the motivation to want to workout too on top of cleaning your new house and making it a home. It’s all SO exhausting.
I have been tirelessly cleaning my new house top to bottom while unpacking and I absolutely feel like it’s never ending. My “vacation” truly isn’t relaxing. So I decided to spoil myself and go get my hair done. I don’t know what it is but I have been cursed by the hairgods for the past almost year. I do my research and find the best around and I always have the worst luck.
4 hours later, a bleached Lularoe shirt, and a raging headache…. I came out with… purple and gray hair when all I wanted was blonde highlights. I can’t tell you how heartbreaking that is. It truly has set my mood for this time in texas so far.
To add to the list: my packages have been delivered to the wrong house every single time so far, this puppy I got destroys everything in his path and has eaten cords to electronics, brought poop inside to Jecelin’s playroom, ruined new decorations I got, and I go back to work next week and have to meet new friends.
Also, we want another baby but Jecelin’s toddler tantrums have been WICKED. She still doesn’t like to sleep through the night and she has to be twisting my hair to fall asleep. I never realized how dependent a little human can be 24/7 til I met my little J. Trying to find out the right time to have another baby is unsettling too. Is there ever a right time?
but hey, we got a new Ninja coffee maker… and it’s been life changing so there’s a positive.
I know there are much more serious things going on in our world right now and my problems are minimal compared to them. With that, let’s hope for a better week for all. Stay safe my friends.
