Back in Business

[slideshow]

So after quite a long hiatus or sabbatical, whichever you prefer. I am back and blogging. FINALLY adding pictures of my rented furniture. I don't like it much but it is comfy and gets the job done. I would never choose it on my own though. Anyhow, a lot has happened. I started work and it's been going pretty well. I'm finally starting to figure things out and got some praise from my many bosses recently so that's a plus. The other interns are amazing! They're so fun! We went out a week or 2 ago but unfortunately it was Friday and I'm incapable of staying up late after working all day so I was a lamehead. Then I rode home with THE creepiest cabby on earth. Good experience. I'm really hoping we can all go out again soon but I gotta show these Texans how we party in da ville! Plus the bars here close at like 2. Psh.

In other news, the kiddos are doing great. TJ is his normal self, just a chill old guy. Mani is starting to be a bit of a snot. Maybe it's those terrible twos. I'm sure it has a lot to do though with me not being able to entertain her like I used to. We don't go to the park like we did in Lou because it is ALWAYS at least 90 degrees here, dawn and dusk. Not only have I not gotten to walk her much but I also haven't been running. Ugh. Anyway, she's been going to daycare which helps but on the weekends she's crazier than ever. I love her to death but by Sunday afternoon I'm ready to send her back to the dogs. Literally.

So in closing, (because I go to bed pretty much when the sun goes down) I just wanna say that things are going pretty well here. Not a fan of Texas though. Way too freaking hot and crowded and everything moves too slow for my liking. But you know, it's always a good experience. And even better, I met a nice guy out here who may be something special :) More about him later. Nighty night friends!

PS- CONGRATS TO JESSICA AND KEVIN ON THEIR ENGAGEMENT!

Year 30

Is this thing on? I've been struggling with a bit anxiety out of nowhere over the past year and a half so in an attempt to keep my head from spinning I'm going to try my return to writing.

I turned 30 in February and it's seriously been my best year. Suddenly I stopped caring so much about things, and more about *gasp* my family and friends. Weird right? But in caring more about people, I also started to care less about their opinions on my life choices. That said, I am going to provide you with a VERY brief rundown of the 3 major life events happening right now:


We are buying a house! Maybe... Yay right? Back in October I found this really great house under a lease option contract that we ended up snatching up. It's in a nice, established neighborhood where *most* people own and genuinely take care of their houses. Not at the Hank Hill lawn level but I'm talking seasonal outdoor decorations and it just happens to be the neighborhood other parents bring their kids t…

Burn the Past

One of my old pastors used to say "God gave you two ears and one mouth so you could listen twice as much". I've always been a pretty decent listener. I was always in the top 5 during games of Simon Says and with a mother like mine, you needed to do your best to prevent her repeating herself. But one area where I really struggle is listening to what God says to me and what direction to go in my life. I'm a control freak. There, I said it. There have been times in my life where I've had to schedule not only when I would have free time but what I would do during said free time. I've literally put "watch tv" on my calendar. So is it any surprise that when someone says to "let go and let God" I have trouble leaving my entire life and existence to someone other than myself? Not only that, but someone who isn't a someone at all? To someone I can't see, don't understand, don't know how to listen to and just have to have blind faith…

Guess Who's Back

Sometimes my thoughts get really overwhelming and when that happens I usually have to do something active and relatively creative. I've been using coloring books since before they were cool and strangely baking is still a big go-to for me but there's also writing. Today while lamenting to the husband he suggested I write a blog to try to just get shit out. So that's what I'm doing.

We are moving back to Louisville. Yay? I guess that's still TBD. I love Louisville, I really do and I have for years but like a weird, slightly dysfunctional, long term relationship, love just wasn't enough. I felt trapped and suffocated. I had created this identity box for myself and while it worked for a while it eventually turned into my coffin. It was tiny and I didn't feel like it could fit everything I wanted to be a part of my identity. 15 months ago I was exercise and non-profit worker Rennay. That's it. When we moved I realized it was a true clean slate. Absolutely n…
