I thought I would update the website being that I haven’t in so long. I will try to not ramble but there are no guarantees. A lot has happened since the last time I posted!
We’ve been back since October of last year. Covid is still here much to my chagrin. Last year’s festivities were low-key: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. We spent the holidays with just my parents.
This year hubby and I were vaccinated in May. My parents have already been vaccinated. We are all fully vaccinated. We are just waiting on the kids to be approved so they can get vaccinated too.
This is my personal opinion. And I respect others. I believe in vaccines. We are not anti-vaxxers. My children have all of their shots. Hubby has all his shots and I do as well.
The pandemic has brought many things to our lives. Some of us became very close: hubby and I. We worked on ourselves a lot during quarantine and have grown closer in our marriage and parenting. But we also lost things: friendships, people. I won’t go into detail but the pandemic, mask-wearing, vaccines, it all became very political and to me it isn’t. It’s science. It’s being health-conscious and considerate of our peers. To me, mask-wearing is not an issue. In Ecuador it was mandatory. You didn’t wear a mask outside, you were fined. We all wore masks, even little 2-year old Adele with the mild asthma. So coming back here and wearing masks was a non-issue for us.
I have distanced myself from certain people. At first, it was a bit sad. But then I understood that it was what was supposed to have happened. And I don’t even look back now or think of those people.
Only moving forward.
So, it goes without saying that I have let this website fall by the wayside. Ha! Other things took precedent. I honestly wasn’t sure what to do with this website anymore. I started it as a way of showcasing my crafts, inspired by what my son likes. But he’s not a baby anymore. He’s 7 now. He likes other things like Minecraft and Among Us and Legos and Super Mario. So I considered maybe in the future changing the name. For now, I will keep it a bit longer.
The website also showcased family life and our homeschooling days. Except I haven’t had time to write much about that. Mostly I’ve spoken about Evangeline’s hypotonia and that seemed to interest people very much. Which makes me happy. That chapter in her life was so difficult and I’m glad that my words are able to help anyone dealing with a situation like that.
In short, I wanted my posts to be rosey. But life isn’t rosey all the time. So as I thought about what I would do with this website, I realized, I should just be honest and talk about everything. The good times and the bad times.
So stay tuned for a more personal blog!
