I’m not going to sugarcoat it: this year has fucking blown.
Aside from getting “custody” of my stepsons (their choice) in January and all my kids being healthy and doing well in school–everything else has just SUCKED.
In February I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression (which I passed on to my poor Eenan) and that was the start of the snowball effect of losing interest in running (aside from injuring my knee a year ago in December 2018), gaining weight due to lack of exercise and becoming bored of Keto, not accomplishing my goals (i.e. going to school), amongst tons of other things. Don’t even get me started on the money situation–SWEET JESUS.
It seems like this year, every time we got some kind of break, or some kind of silver lining began to shine through it would all come crashing down. Murphy’s Law of Life was a quick fucker this year.
I know people could have it worse. I know there’s a roof over our heads and the kids are healthy. But everything else–it just overall sucks.
This is probably the worst Christmas in YEARS.
Ok. Moving on. I’m done whining.
[edited to add:] A huge thank you to Candy and Victor C. for your help! I’ve got Classic Editor back. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who hated it 😆 [/edit]
Jorge, John and the boys were doing a great job of ignoring me earlier because they were all playing PubG in the living room. It drives me nuts to hear them all yelling about “That was my kill, dude!” and “We’re dropping!” so I came to the bedroom to FINALLY update this thing–only to find that the latest update to WordPress: WordPress 5.2.2 is completely different! It’s great that I can add my own HTML (because with the other interface it would turn HTML to regular text) but how the hell am I supposed to insert an image from my media library!?! 😡 😥 ❓
Anyway. I’m just going to update from my phone or iPad–even though Jorge stole my iPad Air (which, ok, fine–it was HIS iPad Air but he gave it to me because I had an awesome rose gold keyboard!) so now I’m charging my iPad Mini (that’s probably too old to even use WordPress and I have to locate my other Bluetooth keyboard. FML.).
Anyway. Being *this* bored and not being allowed to blog caused me to start nit-picking at my desk and I finally cleaned my drawers out and organized piles of papers and the girls’ art. I still have one more section to do, but I’m pretty sure my nostrils are coated in dust bunnies and I’m thirsty. And I kinda don’t wanna do it. Not gonna lie that that last pile of crap will probably stay there till 2020. (I found junk on my desk from 2018 😯 !) But, I’ve been in a tidying mood lately (FINALLY!) that I may actually tackle it!
