…and today is my second post. I had high hopes for the new blog when I changed from my blogger blog. And then life got in the way; or continued to get in the way. The loss of my son in 2015 wasn’t something I could just pick up and move on from. 2016 was hard. Really really hard. Writing on the internet was just not something I wanted to do at all. I thought I wanted to write a travel blog (jessionthego.wordpress.com), and had a lot of trips coming up – but then I didn’t blog any of them. I set up this blog to talk about all the other things; the crafting, random product reviews etc. But then I basically didn’t do those things. In 2016 I was lost and just trying to recover myself. I still need a focus for the blog, but for now it will just be writing.
So this year, I’m not going to resolve to write, because a resolution sets me up for failure, but I do enjoy it, so I’m going to try.
What has this year brought so far?
-A clean craft room. My week off work for Christmas I removed everything from my craft room and then put it all (minus a few bags of junk) back in. Now everything has a place.
-A fun new way to craft. Well, this was actually a Black Friday gift, but I have a new Silhouette Cameo, and am having a ton of fun making projects on it. Maybe I will do some tutorials.
-A commitment to Frugalwoods “Uber Frugal January”. I was proud of our savings rate last year, and I think it would be amazing if we can do it again with a daycare payment this year.
-A giant belly. Well, I guess last year brought that too. But I am now 28 weeks pregnant. We hope our take home baby will be joining us at the end of March.
-A commitment to exercise until the baby comes. Starting on the first I want to exercise 5 days a week. I probably won’t blog about it, that’s boring. But right now I’m liking https://www.doyogawithme.com
