What's in a blog?

  1. 1.
    a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.
  1. 1.
    add new material to or regularly update a blog.
    "it's about a week since I last blogged"

  • A blogger is someone who blogs, or writes content for a blog.
Well, I think with such definitions, I have failed at having a blog or being a blogger. Last night I laid in bed and thought, man I should get back to my blog. I don't have an area of expertise, like most bloggers, I don't write regularly in order to maintain a reader base, and I don't carry a witty, humorous tone that makes everyone want to come back for more. My blog is simply, an online diary of sorts. An over sharing of my life, that usually borders the line my husband has quietly drawn in the virtual blog sharing sand.   

I don't really know why I stopped writing last year. I had a lot going on, I suppose. Found out I was pregnant only to find out, I was laid off from one job, went looking for another, finally found one, then had to disclose I was pregnant. The chaos of it all, had me shortly there after put off work due to high blood pressure. Ugh, it was crazy. That being said, the end of my pregnancy was fabulous. I felt great, I enjoyed spending a lot of time outdoors, and I truly felt like the pregnant cliche "your glowing". 

Anywho, recap as short and painlessly as I can, because 99% of anyone reading this, probably follows me on another form of social media and is able to see my daily chaos. Regardless- here it is.
I had a scheduled C-section on August 21st and was gifted with the most beautiful little boy in the world. He totally and utterly completes me. We worked hard to find a new normal around here as a family of four. Kaylee began pre-school, because god love that poor little girl, she is 21 days shy of the cut off to start school this year. We drove to Toronto for Christmas to visit our family. 2 kids, my husband and I in a confined space for 18 hours 2 ways... It truly is a miracle we are all still alive. 

The new year started out a little bit rough. Our washer kicked the bucket, deciding to take out all of the flooring in our basement with it. Insurance and restoration companies... What a headache. But then the turn. The turn of events that has begun to change our lives dramatically. Jordon was presented with a job in Ontario. This is something I have longed for. I have quietly pushed for it, since Kaylee was born. 
It is an emotional roller coaster to say the least. We live a beautiful life in Nova Scotia. We have spent years making our house, our home. Our home we brought both of our children home to. Giving all of this up, is not going to be easy. It is also proving to be harder for hubby than it is for me. Maybe I can say that because I am still here. 
He has left to begin our life in Ontario. He has started working, in order to build the foundation for our lives. With that, he is sacrificing coming home each night to his home, his bed, his children and his wife. I do not for one second take that for granted. I am grateful for him. I also miss him. A house becomes quite lonely without a partner. 

So, in a nutshell that is the scoop. I had a beautiful baby, My little girl is becoming a big girl, Christmas was fabulous, and WE ARE MOVING HOME!!!

So folks, what's in a blog... Well, this gals blog in just an online diary. An over-share of whats going on in my head. Where I occasionally have to tread lightly as not to cross my virtual line in the sand. One, where I quite possibly write to just reflect on my own life. If I have a few people that read and follow, than great. I love people sharing their thoughts and feedback. If not, than I am okay with that too. Because after all, this is just my little slice of the internet! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day ya'll! Til next time!
Family of 4!
