I've been failing majorly in the blog world as of lately. Whenever I get a moment to myself to write a new post I end up taking a nap, or reading, or folding laundry, or a baby starts to cry, or I just don't know what to write about, there is always something that seems to pull me away from blogging & it totally bums me out. I love this little space of mine & I need to get back on track of writing more often! Now that that's out of the way, here is a life update.
If I'm being totally honest, I feel like my little family has been in limbo for the past couple of months, always waiting for something or other. When we moved back to the U.S. we moved in with my mom to save money until Milo was born with the hopes of moving to Santa Monica where Austin got a job. A couple months after starting his job he learned that his office might be moving from Santa Monica to Burbank, so we decided we would keep living at my moms until we knew for sure where his office would be, because it would be so unfortunate to move somewhere for his job only to have the office move in a totally different area! On top of that, he & a friend are in the process of starting up a company with each other, which even furthers our limbo status for a couple of reasons. First reason: we're not 100% it will work out or not, second reason: if it does work out, we aren't sure that we will be able to stay in California or need to move somewhere different, third reason: if it does not work out, Austin might look for a new job which we still wouldn't know where we would be. So, there are a lot of things up in the air right now. Luckily while we are figuring all of this out, my sweet mom is totally cool with us still being at her house, even though we told her we would only be there 6 months top when we moved in & now we're close to 8, haha.
In between all of this we have had a lot going on from my trip to China with Milo & Austin taking Cedar to Utah, then Cedar had two weeks of swimming lessons (it was so traumatic, then so fun, then so cute & traumatic again. kids have so many emotions!), endless beach & zoo days with friends. Austin went to Boston for a few days with his buddy to work on their company & then stayed a couple of days to visit his sister & her family who moved there earlier this summer, & I swear it was the hardest 4 days of motherhood I have experienced. Luckily I did have my mama there to help me out, otherwise I really don't know how I would have handled it! My brother decided for his birthday he wanted us to run a 10k with him & me being me, I let it creep up on me without training, thinking it wouldn't be a big deal. It was a bit bigger of a deal than I imagined because it was a trail run & at least 2 miles of it we're switch backs up a gigantic hill, haha, so it was pretty rough, but I finished it in an hour & a half which I thought was pretty good timing since I don't know when the last time I ran was... probably at my last half marathon, when I was pregnant with Cedar, haha. Since then we went to Utah & Wyoming & got home last Sunday & then came down to Orange County on Wednesday to watch my sisters three kids until Monday. It has been so fun watching them yet, so crazy with 5 kids! I'm starting to think I'm not cut out to mother 5 children.
I can't believe that we're already half way through July, this month has gone so fast, summer is almost over but I feel like it just began. Craziness. I'm excited for August & fall though, Austin & I have decided to embrace our semi-homeless situation & are planning a ton of camping trips in the upcoming weeks, so I'm really excited.
