Life became overwhelming these past 2 years. I used to blog daily, even if I set the post to private, to friends only or to selective post that only subscribers could see. I just couldn’t get around to my normal blogging. Things had become so overwhelming for a little while.
Our Life here is completely different now.
My husband is home full time now permanently, he has a heart issue related to the forced mask ordinances in our state during the plannedemic.
Things are more stable here health-wise for him, he’s been allowed to do remote heart monitoring from home, which is awesome by the way.
I’m currently remodeling things, changing and updating my house and feeling the need to do the same here on my blog.
I’m not sure how I want it to look yet. I have considered changing the name. BUT I have used ‘thesimplyfreelife’ because it reminded me of my maternal grandmother. She called me TangTang and would say, “TangTang you know the BEST things in life are simple and free.” For me, lately, just focusing on the simple and free things have helped give me some peace when things seem so crazy, overwhelming and completely out of control.
A friend has suggested I vlog or podcast, I’m ALWAYS talking and putting voice notes into my devices. I am considering doing so and adding it to this blog. My “voice notes” in my phone and ipad have been, I suppose, somewhat therapeutic for me.
I didn’t realize how much we’ve been through until I started listening to and deleting some of those voice notes from my phone.
I absolutely ABHOR the phrase “NEW NORMAL” UGH!!! Seriously that is what my life is now “a new normal” and my standards of okay are so different. My goals are very different also and that is okay.
