Family First

Family is everything quote
My mood in a photo ...

Hey guys, so September decided to kick me in the butt and I'm just about ready for the month to end. After the Macbook saga I fully intended to blog every single day, but family comes first.

Last week, my dad spent two days in the hospital and my anxiety hit the roof. I couldn't blog, answer emails, and barely could have functioned at work. If you know my story you know that early last year I lost my sister (kidney disease). Last week was like re-living a bit of that. So yeah ... no bueno.

Thankfully, my dad is ok - he got a virus that affects your joints, your blood count etc. it appears he'll be fine, though we did have a moment of worry. My anxiety though, well that will take a minute to get back down to zero. And when it does, I'll respond to emails, be back on a commenting spree and my blog will have life again. Ha!

... And can we just write off September? Between my MacBook, and this - ugh. Anyway, my positivity and I will be back soon!

Have a great week guys!!

  1. So sorry! It can be so rough when family members are sick. In April I was prepping for my first bridal show, just being a perfectionist about it all, but also working WAY over my hours at work. They needed help... and then my mom was in the hospital. Like two days before my show. I was a wreck. I sat there in the hospital room on my laptop doing some designs and lists... it worked out. But it was so difficult. I was at the end of my rope. Though I guess I inched along the end until July 31st... luckily things have been looking up recently. haha I am kind of tired of typing "so... you guys know... that 2015 has sucked... so far... " bahah. :) Glad your dad is ok, and I hope that everything keeps looking up for you! XO -Alexandra

  2. That is so scary on its own but even more so when it makes you simultaneously relive another tragic time in your life. I'm glad your dad is on the mend and hope things continue in that direction. I like September but I want October more, so I'd be fine with just skipping ahead ;). Take care of yourself, friend!
