Wow It has been over 6 months since I last updated this blog. I feel ashamed but not really. It is what it is. Before I really go into where I’ve been and what’s been going on I should start by saying I have been increasingly learning to give myself more grace. So there will be no beating myself up over this little hiatus.
So, where I’ve been? In short no where. The pandemic is still going strong so Baby Joy Chaser have been in the house. I can probably actually count the places I’ve been.
To the mall – once
on a date – once
to a drive in movie – once
inside my brother’s house – once
inside one of my friends houses for a play date – twice
Inside Target – Maybe 10 times
Inside the supermarket – once
Doctor’s appointments – 5 times (including a checkup for baby joy chaser)
Other than these days above we have been in the house.
What’s been going on? I’ve still been chasing joy both personally and professionally. Personally I had to seek out a therapist to help me manage my anxiety. I’m still doing the day job from home and the day care is still unavailable. It is really hard and I’ve needed to talk to a professional to keepthings in perspecitve and to talk to somehome about just how hard it has been. The limits the pandemic has placed on my social life have definitly increased loneliness and boredome. However, I have still been in regular contact my friends. I’ve learned to do my own crochet braids, and have had a decent amount of sprirtual growth.
Brand wise Chasing Joy is now 11. I have not been blogging but the brand is still going strong. We have been doing monthly challenges in the FB group and I have launched the Chasing Joy Show. The Chasing Joy Show is live streamed in the FB group and will debut on You Tube in March. I’m really proud of Season 1 and have already booked most of the guests for season 2.
Baby Joy Chaser will be 3 soon. He is talking a lot, tall for his age, and embracing every everything that it means to be a toddler (good and bad).
So that’s what’s been going on and where I’ve been. I hope to get back to blogging regularly but I am not making any problems. What have you been doing and where have you been???
