UGHHHHHHH!!!!! So am I the only who thinks that someone’s vaccination status is kind of like their political views and religious beliefs? In other words, they should never be talked about outside of the home?
As much as I don’t want to write about this, it is something that I’ve always been somewhat curious about, but to be honest not that passionate about. It’s not that I don’t care about it, it’s just that you won’t see me bringing the subject up to EVERYONE I come in contact with, and you won’t see me fighting with someone about it till I’m blue in the face. Now get me started on which is better, Coke or Pepsi and then we’ll have a heated discussion…
After I shared the pictures of my recent candy run on Facebook, I figured I might as well share my new work out schedule that I’ll be starting in April to help combat the more than likely weight gain that I will have had by then from all of the candy consumption. (For video keep reading)
Last week my mother sent me a very amusing article on dating, asking me if I too was dating, but instead online? (Don’t mind the bunny picture above, I just thought it was cute) Now as you guys know, I met my husband online through a dating site so I thought she was just trying to be funny. When I went to the article however, I realized that yes, I was online dating again. I was online dating other moms and women.
I loved this article on mommy dating because it was true. Before I started blogging/vlogging, you all know that I had very little friends and those friends that I did have, had lives or lived further away than I’d liked. So I was very lonely. Now the solution to loneliness, just like when you’re single, is to go out and meet someone. With my husband I had no time to go out and meet someone being a single mom, so instead I went online, now almost 5 years later with two more kids, I had even less time to find someone to be my friend, so once again, I went online… Continue reading →
I have never in a million years had such an amazing support system…ever.
After I posted my last blog post in response to how downright shitty I felt after seeing the “Why I’d Hate to be Asian” video, I felt really embarrassed to have shared what I did. When I woke up the next morning I even had the urge to delete it, but before I could make my way downstairs to the computer I received 25 emails which were either personal emails from readers, notifications of comments on the blogpost, or responses on my Facebook on my phone.
I’m truly amazed and touched by all of the kind words, all of the relatable stories shared, and all of the effort that you all have put in to helping me maintain my sanity. I started this blog for myself, and really as much as everyone says that they are getting just as much out of it as I am, I still find that hard to believe, because I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have as many new friends as I have found or that have found me.
After reading all the emails and comments I realized that this whole time that I’ve been feeling down on myself and the way I looked since being a small kid, the thing I was missing was a great support group. Back when I was younger I didn’t know how to express my feelings to anyone other than my parents. Every time I was bullied or called chink eyes, or someone tried to copy my eyes by using their fingers to pull at the outer corners of their own, I would run to my parents who to be completely honest weren’t much help. Don’t get my wrong, I love my parents and owe everything that I have to them, BUT just like any other person who doesn’t know exactly where you’re coming from, they couldn’t really help me the way I needed.
