I’m still here…

There is so much going on and I have so much to say, I don’t even know where to start. So I’m not going to right now.

All I want to say is that I’m still here!!

I have not quit blogging. I didn’t catch Ebola. And I did not get carted away by any scary thing rendering me unable to participate in the outside world.

No.

I just started my full time job.

This week has been a major adjustment period of going from a single stay at home mom to a single full time working mom. The adjustment is going much better than expected actually, but I’m finding there simply are not enough hours in a day. I plan on filling you all in on the crazy, messy, beautiful details as soon as possible (I know the anticipation must be killing you). But in the meantime, I’m struggling to do much outside of keeping us all alive! 😉

So blogging, Facebook, and really communicating of any kind with anyone in the world has fallen by the wayside this week. I pray and trust that I will learn to balance things and find time to continue writing because it is my haven.

For now, I felt the need to let you all know, I am in fact still alive. Just finding a new normal!

So many of you have been so unbelievably supportive of me during this transition and crazy season of life and it’s just amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my achy, happy, grateful heart.

So that’s all. I just wanted to take 5 minutes while I took a bathroom break at work to tell you all:

1. I’m still here!
2. Thank you!
3. Stay tuned!

XOXO,
Rachael

  1. Take your time. Some things shift around and require more your attention. There’ll be more time for blogging after the adjustment period. I’ve had to adjust my blogging priorities too, because I just can’t do everything in a 24-hour period. 🙂

  3. It’s awesome that you’re supporting your boys all by yourself! As you adjust to your new lifestyle, you may be able to set aside five minutes to write a day. Even if you don’t publish it, at least you’re getting your writing time!

    • That is a good idea naomi…its my new strategy! ☺ And thank you very much! Although I am now financially supporting us, I do have to admit I am not doing this by myself completely as I have a lot of family support and am staying with my parents for the time being until it makes more sense to move into our own place…. But i am definitely doing the majority of things on my own at this point and it feels good!

  4. I resonate with what everyone else has said–feel free to take the time you get settled into your new routine! I’m sure it is a huge adjustment! Thanks for the quick update and so glad to hear that things are going as well as could be expected! 🙂

Take your time and I will be keep my eyes open in my emails for you. Enjoy your Christmas season and rest when you can. Or at least schedule time for a little fun rest time for yourself.

  6. I’m glad the transition is going better then expected for you. I can’t imagine how it must be trying to stay on top of everything, I can’t and I don’t work full time, maybe like part-part time. 🙂

  7. Having been through this same thing – becoming a single mom of two children under 2, some 20 years ago, I can only say that I am grateful for the adversity and struggle. It helped me grow more in faith and character than anything ever has.
    If you put your children’s needs before yours , you will be amazed how they will thrive. They are only young for a blink of your eye, so don’t ever miss these precious years focused just on your needs. You will have time for yourself sooner than you know. You have been given the most important job in the world… parenthood.. Be blessed…
    Best of luck!

    • I feel more blessed now than i even have in my life. My kids are the most important thing and their needs are always my priority. Everything i do is done with them in mind. And i am holding onto each moment as much as i can because i know it will be gone before i know it. These days are precious…even the hardest ones. Thank you for your wisdom and sharing your experience.
