As we close out this year and start a new one I felt the urge to write a post about this past year. It hasn’t been kind to me and it’s my own fault.
I keep falling back into old habits of trusting the same people and even though they have proven time and time again that they can’t be trusted I keep doing it.
You might be wondering why because I am too. It’s not like I can’t take care of myself I mean my husband was in jail for 3 months and I was on my own for the first time ever with 2 kid’s no less, but I did it and it turns out it’s not as bad as I thought.
Am I having trouble doing things for myself because I’m so introverted? Who knows, but one thing I do know is that I hate driving and new things, and it’s so bad that I will procrastinate anything until it can’t be ignored anymore and it has become a real problem in my life.
I have multiple health issues going on right now but I’m having problems adjusting to my new doctor and I’ve only been once. I’ve been breaking out in hives for some unknown reason and I have a lump on my stomach. All of this needs to be dealt with along with the fact I have to get blood work done too that I seem to have trouble with also.
So in light of the new year my resolution is to stop being scared of new things and get this stuff done so I don’t die prematurely leaving my kids behind wondering where everything went so wrong.
I am so hoping that any introverts that read this can help me with my problems of getting out and not being scared, especially about driving in the crowded cities.
I uploaded a video to YouTube last night of our Christmas tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve. My kids were 13 and 18 at the time but it was the first time we had done it since having them.
The reason for that was it was my family tradition and not my husband’s. He was totally against it for reasons I can’t remember right now. I finally talked him into it by remembering to tell him that only one gift was allowed and he finally agreed.
I just wanted my kids to have something from my childhood that I thoroughly enjoyed doing with my family. Of course they loved it too, just like I knew they would.
I honestly hope we can start some new traditions just for us that neither mine nor my husband’s family did. That would be so awesome for us as a family to start.
Do you have any holiday traditions, old or new, that your family does? Let me know in the comments.

P.S. Here’s my holiday tradition video if you would like to see it.
Well that’s what everyone says anyway but does anyone even follow that really? I mean I know that we definitely should because of our son and if you’ve read any of my blog posts you know that our son is schizophrenic. If not here is one of the posts about that.
So anyway yesterday me and my husband got into an argument over our usual stupidness with me yelling at him and getting all angry and in turn yelling at the kids. Now I know that I shouldn’t have taken it out on them but sometimes that happens.
As usual our son couldn’t handle it and the voices got worse to the point that he had a panic attack. His said his eyes were rolling into the back of his head, he couldn’t breathe and he wasn’t able to sit still. I called his therapist but he was so agitated that he wouldn’t talk to her.
He was just screaming for me to hang up. He never did talk to her but after a while of the house being quiet he finally went to sleep and stayed asleep. Luckily his therapist is coming by today for a session with him and his sister and all will be well.
Thanks for reading and if you enjoyed it please like, share and comment.
Well it’s the last day of the ultimate blog challenge and even though I didn’t get all the posts (I didn’t even start the challenge until last week! SHAME!) I learned that you can basically write about whatever crosses your mind as long as you write something at least everyday.
I very much enjoyed every bit of what I did participate in with this. It challenged me to go back over my life with some posts and to get out of my comfort zone which is something you absolutely have to do if you want to make it in this business.
I really didn’t have any problems with this because like I said I waited until the last week of the challenge to participate but a couple of them were a challenge but after thinking about it I figured it out so all went well.
I will definitely be participating again in January.
Haven’t we all been mischievous? I know I have. Always have been and always will be 😉
I use to always play tricks on my mom to make her curse and thought that was just the funniest thing ever.
I would say something awful and then goad her into saying she had thought about it and then I would say “Mom! That’s terrible! How could you!” Lol and then the cursing would start and she would exclaim “You tricked Me!” And I would laugh and laugh! Lol
I was so bad.
Then out in public I would get right behind her and walk as close as I could so that I was walking right on her hills but without stepping on them. The looks I got with that was priceless and then she would stop and I’d bump into her and get in trouble for that.
I very much enjoyed aggravating my mom.
That’s the only mischief I remember getting into but if any of my family members read this comment something I’ve forgotten about.
