Hi Yall 😉

 

Man does it feel good to have that story done and published! (If you haven’t read it yet you can click here to read it The Mountain.)

So anyways, I have to say that writing that story was a very happy experience for me. Not a single person reacted badly. Not all of my family knew my story before I wrote that so some were reading it for the first time just like you guys. I was scared they would be very upset. But there were all incredibly loving and kind and supportive.

In fact I got so much great feedback I am thinking about starting a little monthly article that I send out to your email. It would be a piece I write about ‘who knows what’ once a month. It would be more polished and have pictures like the piece I just wrote.

My blog is my diary. I don’t edit, or even re-read what I post here. I need this outlet for my own personal release. This is how I get my thoughts out and down on paper…virtual paper? After writing that article I see that my writing improves a whole shit load when I re-read and have someone help me edit. So I would like to continue with that. I don’t know the exact logistics yet but I will figure it out and keep you all posted.

Today we are leaving for Florida. Nix hasn’t flown in a while so I am slightly anxious for how that is going to go. But I am so excited for everything we have planned and the things we don’t have planned. We are visiting Trav’s grandparents.

Something else that has been on my chest for quite a while lately is being a stay at home mom. I know every stay at home mom says this but it is the hardest job ever. The work isn’t hard, I mean it is, but I love being home with Nix. I would never have it any other way, but it is the hardest job I have ever had because no one recognizes it as a job. Some times people act like I just sit around all day watching soap operas or something. I work my ass off but people think I’m lazy or just catching a free ride off of Trav. It is so infuriating. SO I have decided that I am going to make this online space work for me. I am putting on my little entrepreneur hat and I am going to make my own money.

Why am I a lazy freak for wanting to raise my child myself? Why is that so weird for people? I’m not judging people who work and put their kids in daycare at all. I totally get it. But it just wasn’t something I am willing to do. I worked in those daycares and I just know too much. Again I am not judging those who work. Every parent is simply doing the best they can for their child. I am so lucky to be able to be at home with Nix. But I will not be made to feel guilty or lazy because I stay home with him. He is a full time job let me tell you. Being a stay at home mom means working the longest hours I have ever worked, maybe one break during the day which I usually spend cleaning. I wake up extra early to get my alone time….and oh ya, I don’t get paid.

Don’t get my wrong Trav takes very good care of me and gives me complete liberty if I want or need something financially. But it is hard to spend someone else’s earned money. It just makes me feel weird. I would like to have my own. Just because it is nice to have your own money that you earned. I have decided that I am going to make this happen for myself, while also being a stay at home mom. I don’t know where that money is going to come from but I know its going to happen.

Anyways thanks for listening 🙂

Oh also if you were watching our vlogs and miss them we are now on snapchat. Mine is haleymullin and Trav’s is tbfloatin

We don’t really have the internet power to upload videos to youtube up here in the mountains which is why we haven’t vlogged since we moved. Hopefully we will get it figured out at some time but for now we are snappin away!

I totally love and appreciate you guys

Love and Light

 

XOXO
