When you are growing up, the holidays are like the most magical time of year. Then, as you get older and money, chaos, and stress are added to the equation, some of that magic is lost. For me, I love Christmas, because I have this wonderful idea in my mind of what it should be. So far, I've never seen any reality to that dream, but maybe one day.

So, let's start with the pre-eclampsia part. When I first found out that I was pregnant, I knew nothing about pre-e.

So, during week 29 when I started feeling gall bladder pains in my back and chest, I didn't know that it could have been caused by the pre-e that was taking over my body.

So this week I am starting a new journey... back to the land of the living post baby drama. That's right, I'm planning on finding a job this week. I am confident that I will find one, and I am ready to get out there and rejoin society. Here's hoping that the right doors open where they need to!
At the same time, I also have to finish my Etsy account, post my items, and try to drum up some business. It might be slow at first, but I'm hoping that I can downsize some things, and…Continue
