Happy Monday friends!! Gosh this past week has been…an emotional roller coaster to say the least. Today’s blog post is being sent from sitting outside a gas station. It is the only place I could find decent service 😂
I wouldn’t mind so much not having service if my business wasn’t based off of my phone. I have literally been going insane! I miss sharing try ons with you all! I miss interacting and just having a social life! So what have I been doing with having no service/lack of service?
Well let me start off by explaining why we don’t have service. About 3 months ago, Rico and I switched phone companies mainly to save money. Little did we know, the service where we would be living would be horrible. Since we moved into our home, my service has been slowly going downhill. I would get 2 bars, but recently I have had no service! I feel so distant from Rico because he can’t ever see us on FaceTime. Well my calls always fail on him, so talking has been minimal too. When I do find good service, I take FULL advantage because I know it won’t last.
Fast forward, I went in store to talk to someone and they blamed my phone. After the lady talked about how the service is spotty where we live, even in their store, and a few other places! Nope, not my phone. I am in my third trimester, I need service just in case something happens. So we decided to switch back to Verizon, but we had to go through all of these trial and errors before we could cancel with the plan we have now. Hence, why it is taking me so long to get internet again! Lesson learned.
So how have I been filling my time?
I have been finally getting around to making and sending out the baby celebration invites! If you don’t know me, I love arts and crafts. DIY projects, yes please! Since I am not inviting as many people as I did for my first one, I wanted to make it as special as I could. Not having service or internet, I couldn’t design them on the computer. Next best thing, make them. I went to Hobby Lobby (one of my favorite stores) and got simple invitations and I hand wrote the invitations.
Honestly I LOVE how they turned out. I am a little OCD when it comes to this type of stuff. Some of it isn’t centered, but it is the thought that counts.
I have been cleaning and reorganizing. I mean how many times can I do that? I am still finding things to throw away. I have made lists of everything to stock up on before the baby comes. Cayde and I play outdoors when it isn’t raining. We go to my parents house since I can’t communicate with my friends.
It has been super stressful and with my hormones, I have cried a lot. I feel so alone even though I am far from alone. I got so frustrated because I couldn’t do any blogging. I wasted a lot of gas trying to find service over the past month. In the end, we are healthy. We have food and a roof over our head. This is only temporary and hopefully tomorrow I have internet and service again!!
No matter what life throws at you, figure a way to make it positive. I got to really soak in my time with Cayde and just focus on baby boy kicking. I’ve gotten to know my neighbor pretty well! Cayde adores her son (they are 4 months apart). Let’s just say I am simply living in the moment! I hope you are all having a fabulous start to your week!
