Well, I wanted to run an experiment and see if I could journal a little bit every day about the progress on the land here and what’s happening. Plus, I have so many projects in the mix these days! Last week I moved my picnic tables around a little bit, and hung up some solar powered fairy lights to go along with it, and made this quick little birch light stand in the process. I’ve become more handy lately with the drill, having so much fun getting to use it for various projects and get sh*t done! I’m sort of creating a kids zone, plus outdoor eating zone with the tables like this. My kids swings-set desperately needs an upgrade really soon, the logs have been rotting for some time. Hopefully that’ll be coming down the pipe in the month of May! I managed to clean out the play sandbox and made it much more welcoming to my youngest, Sunny (removed the weeds and potential ant piles, any broken toys from years past, etc).
Someone asked in a comment yesterday - How did you get your pre-baby body back? Also, I have noticed that this is a seriously heavily searched term on google! Everyone is always talking about how to get your body back after a baby or babies, and it’s GOT TO STOP. There is no going back y’all. Like in life for anything ever. There is only ever moving forward.
Many of you have been asking me lately, for more tips on working from home while watching & raising kids, and how to do it all.
The truth is, I have no f*cking clue how to do it.
Every day I struggle with it at some point or another, every day I disappoint myself with feeling like I didn’t have enough time for my child, not having enough time for myself, and I get up the next day and try again.
Ticks. Nobody likes them. People ask us constantly what do we use for tick repellent. Honestly we haven't used anything. Our method is checking our bodies multiple times a day and being aware of tiny things crawling on our bodies. Frank and I have both experienced waking up from a deep sleep to a tick crawling across us and woke up in the middle of the night to see it.
