As many of you know, back in October I went through a rough time dealing with a break up and losing our apartment with other problems following. Some of those problems included more arguments, making sure our pets would still have a home because I definitely couldn’t just give my babies away, making sure I’d have a place to stay and sleep at night.
For a while I had all of my belongings with my family at the house I grew up in which turned out being a bad idea since many of my belongs were taken or misplaced. A lot of my little cousins stay there and would get into my things but also the adults smh.
Some of my craft materials were thrown away, old back up phones taken (got them back fortunately) but the thing that really upset me was several of my brand new notebooks being taken from me. One in particular I wanted I already have a feeling who took it because they asked for it before it came up missing, I said no because it was one of my newest and favorites but I GAVE them another one instead. This is an adult I’m speaking of. My family knows how I am about my writing so for them to do that really hurt. I will never take anything there again. I’ve dealt with this since middle school so I guess I should have known better. Or maybe people just shouldn’t touch what doesn’t belong to them? 🤷🏽♀️
Things have gotten a little better since October but I’m still working to get through this whole mess and on my feet. I’m currently still living with my cousin, her sister has twin boys 5 months old which I’ve been babysitting a lot more lately. They’re adorable and their laughter and smiles will warm your heart but of course babies require a lot of time and attention, especially when there’s two. It can get frustrating at times but I’d say I’m getting plenty of practice for my own some day.
The pets are doing just fine and Izabelle is a lot more comfortable now but I miss them more and more each day. When I go to visit, Izabelle and Zoey both come next to me to lay down, be held, or rubbed. Sometimes I want to cry because they really are like my babies. Not just them, the guinea pigs also. I hate that they don’t have as much floor space anymore but we’re hoping to fix that for them or we’ll have to find them a new home. This is probably what’s the most stressful out of the whole situation. I’m gonna move on from this part of the update before I breakdown lol…
For Thanksgiving I spent time at a few different homes with family, I ate at two of them. I always look forward to my family’s Thanksgiving cooking, it always tastes amazing. Dessert too! I had lemon cake for dessert. Thanksgiving this year also fell on my nieces birthday, we threw her a surprise party the next day. More great food, and entertainment! All of the kids (my nieces and cousins) did dance performances and I’m thinking they need to give me some lessons ASAP😆
No I’m serious. Those kids can really dance, I was proud lol. I hope they stick with it and get even better. Maybe even get into gymnastics or cheer. I’m a little upset at myself for not recording an actual video, I had it on SnapChat instead without saving.
Speaking of SnapChat, I’ve been thinking about having mine for blog updates and a way for you all to get to see a bit of my life, or by using instagram story. I’ve never used Instagram story but I think it’s pretty much the same.
I have not checked any emails lately. Mainly because I got a new phone an have not downloaded gmail, I don’t have my laptop right now so I’ve been blogging by phone, and because I desperately need to clean my inbox. I’ll have to make sure I get to that soon.
I’d love to update you all on everything that has been going on because there is a lot more to this story and some things I have to let play out before I can speak on them. But I’ll leave it here for now. What’s going on in your life lately? How are the holidays treating you so far? Let me know in the comments.💖
