Gardening to Help With Anxiety

I have always considered myself to have a black thumb. It always seemed like I couldn’t maintain a plant at all. They always seemed to die under my care. I don’t know if it was my enthusiasm to water them or if I gave them too much or not enough light, but it just never seemed to work outlet with me and my plants. But even knowing all this, I still wanted to start a vegetable garden. I wanted a little plot in my yard where I could grow things that we could eat and to know that I was eating something I cultivated and cared for lovingly for my family to enjoy.

Today I am Leaving my House

My heart is breaking. Today I am leaving my house with my 2 kids and I don’t know when I will come back or what I’ll come back to, if anything. I know that’s a bit pessimistic and some might say dramatic, but anything is possible when it comes to a storm of this magnitude.

I am a Miami native. I was born here and I’ve lived here basically my entire life. I survived Hurricane Andrew in 1992 when I was 16 years old. My area did not get hit as hard as the Homestead area did but there was still a lot of damage in my neighborhood.

Playing Catch-Up

I absolutely abhor how badly I have abandoned my blog but life has been non-stop for me! I didn’t think adding a child to our family would be this hectic. I knew it would be busy to a point, but I didn’t realize that taking care of two kids under 4 would require everything from me every moment of every day to the point that I don’t even have time to write my thoughts down. So now here I am trying to play catch-up with everything.
