Random Life Stuff- 1

Hello spoonies,

I did a little questionnaire on my Instagram asking if I should post more on it. I got all yes’s so I decided maybe I should do more on the blog about my personal life and not just things that I like. I know my post tend to be random and not follow any specific order but it’s just the way I work. I have ideals and I just type ’em out and voila a post is formed.

I also wanted this blog to reflect me and for people to want to know what my life entitles living with a chronic illness and raising a family so what better way to write about what actually happens in my life and not just post it on Instagram.

If you have been having following me you know that 2019 has brought a lot of changes and challenges. I got full-custody of my children and after a long time of thinking about going back to school I will be going back to college come January 2020.

Took this picture when I was at work one day. It was beautiful that day all the trees looked like this. It was like I was living in a post card.

I am going to back to college to become an Industrial Millwright. For those of you who don’t know what that is : Industrial Millwright is a well respected trade, we do a wide range of things. We need to learn how to read schematics, fabricate parts, troubleshoot, install and maintain machinery, and so much more. That is what got me wanting to go into it. It is diverse and there’s so much to learn. I know a lot of people were surprised because I am in the health field. Many people thought I was going to go to be a nurse, but that’s not what I want. Yes, it is a huge change of field but like I tell people, every machine is like a human body. It has parts that move, part that support etc… and that’s what fascinates me. I also follow many woman millwrights and the things they do is a thing of beauty, it is an art all into itself.

I had my last movie night with the boys for awhile yesterday. I’m really going to miss those. Popcorn, movies and cuddles can’t get any better then that. We watched Dora and the lost city of gold. I truly enjoyed it. It reminded me a bit of an Indiana Jones movie but with a teenage girl and a better plot. It had plenty of laughs for the whole family and it really wasn’t what I expected.

My kids used to watch Dora and Diego often and when I saw that title I suck it was going to suck major D. My hubby and I previewed the trailer and were surprised by how good it looked. Needless to say we will be watching it again without the kids. You should watch it.

We also set up our Christmas tree last night. I despise decorating I am a but of a grinch when it comes to decorations but I do the tree every year for the kids. The deserve great memories. I bought it a few years back for my small apartment and it fits nicely in my living room. The boys had fun finding all the decorations they’ve made me over the years at school and daycare. I think it makes them happy to know that I treasure those little things they made me.

Tonight we are heading out to a staff party for my hubby. I am wearing a leopard printed dress. I never thought I would wear one. I never pictured myself in one to be honest. When I think leopard print I think ‘thin’ “rich” woman. I know it doesn’t sound nice but that’s just what I pictured, let’s think media and movies that’s usually who’s wearing them.

I am excited to wear the dress because it’s completely out of my comfort zone. It’s not something I would’ve picked out for myself. The sales rep is actually the one that put it in the dressing room for me and the boys eye lit up when I stepped out of the dressing room to show them. They looked at my like I was the most beautiful mom I the world. And considering they usually see me in scrubs or PJ’s that was all I needed to see. I tried on a few more dresses but other then the little black number I tried first and the leopard dress they didn’t like the other ones on me. My boys usually have a very different thought on my actual clothes that I wear so for them to both agree on the two dresses meant I was getting them.

For work, I’ve been counting down the days. I gave my letter of resignation at the beginning of the month. I will be done on the 20th of December. I wanted to spend the holidays with my two boys, relaxing, doing fun things and well finishing my packing among other things.

Christmas tree all done.

This will count as my Sunday post. I will try and post these mid week with a few different pictures that aren’t on my insta.

Until next time,

Take time to live.
