Finding Direction

Hello beautiful humans,

I am acutely aware of my lack of posting as of late. My very legitimate excuse is that I just forgot. It’s been one of those seasons that seems super busy but if I sit down to write about it, there’s not much to write about. Let’s consider this my attempt to get some things out of my head and get excited about life again!

Parenting continues to be fun and also exasperating at the same time. Small Princess is strongly contesting the word “no” in as many different ways as she can, so I’m focusing a lot on just getting through this developmental period with as much of my sanity intact. I know that as long as I’m consistent and gentle and respectful that she’ll get through this too, but that doesn’t mean the days aren’t extreeeemly long sometimes.

Since my job has slowed down considerably over the last month, I took the leap and added a second college course to my next eight-week term – which starts on Monday! I’m a little nervous about the extra work, but I’m also happy about the possibility of graduating by the end of the year. Fingers crossed!

And lastly, we also got our options sorted out and our approvals actually approved and this past week we started house shopping. The Texas market is super competitive right now and we’re a little particular about neighborhoods, but hopefully, things work in our favor and we are able to find the perfect place very soon!

My own mental health has been up and down, just as usual, with lots of bad days and a whole lot of good days too. Nothing to complain about though, as long as not too many things derail at one time. Life is fun like that, isn’t it?

Yes, this is a short post. I haven’t had the brain power to work out better, more structured posts in quite a while. Maybe the ability will return shortly, who knows.

Lots of love and kindness,

Katharine Marie
