Welp here we are! I am a few days late but that is totally okay by me. This have been hectic to say the least however let’s break it down for the month in review!
Streaming is yet again, om the back burner for me. With everything I have legit no desire to be sitting in front of the computer. The computer chair that I have is also not very comfortable so sitting there even for a little bit starts to hurt my back just as it did with my 1st pregnancy. I think going forward I would drop streams to 2x per week. On Mondays and Friday’s. If I want to do more the option is always there and if I don’t want to do more than I don’t need to. I still love streaming don’t get me wrong, but I want to spend my time doing productive things that can begin to make money for my family. Not to mention, I have really not been into playing dead by daylight like I once was. The game has gotten stake for me and I have nearly no desire to play it. I am still on the fence with content if I want to just play solo games or if i would like to start doing more crafting/just chatting streams into the mix also. Adding crafting into the mix would mean that I am able to do more in terms of potentially making money for my family. I’m not stressing over it as we wait for the birth of our second child but all are ideas that I am having do cross my mind! With that being said I also would like to revamp my discord server. While healing from this pregnancy that may be the only thing I try to regularly use. I want to bring back a simplistic and society/community based theme to bring people together. Streaming for little to no financial reward is challenging at best. Especially when I feel like I do have skills that I could be using to better financially support myself and bring in a few dollars to the house. I miss being able to work and have a pay check but I also love staying at home as a mom. I just need to think creatively and figure out a way to make it happen!
If you also haven’t noticed, since the move I have been majorly slacking on the blog too. Why? I have no idea. I normally do really well with writing and pre-writing things out so I can get things written efficiently. I have not done that. I need to though because I would really like to make sure that I can get things going for when our second son is born that they can be scheduled and just consistent. Just like before when I did this with my 1st pregnancy, only last time I wrote strictly about streaming and now I barely even touch on that unless it is my monthly updates! I will really be trying to hammer down on building another handful of logs to schedule while writing about subjects that also come up in life too. I think in 2022 I will be attempting to do blogs 3x per week. I feel like I also need to research a lot more about SEO and how I can better make my blogs seen by people too!
And lastly, our home update! Everything upstairs is basically painted! A few walls in the new babies room need to be done, and then after the front entry if the house needs to be done but that is for now. Oh and the floors in the bedrooms also need to be done but the main hallway, dining area and living room floors are done which is huge! And the kitchen and bathroom and front entry floors also need to be done. And the baseboards because the ones with the carpet were all different and we want them to be the same (Obviously!). Downstairs will have to wait til the time comes when we use it more. I also feel a bit of a rush with the due date approaching to get everything ready and prepared for the birth! I am so happy with the house turning out to be ours. It is crazy to think how it was and where it has gone with us updating things. Just getting rid of the carpet in the main living areas has been such a huge change!
As you can see things have been happening here in my life, I just have not been able to find times update people on it though! I am enjoying the last bits of peace and quiet til we have our new sin with us into the world. Update in that also coming soon too! As the time approaches where we will have him I have an increase in anxiety and increase in nervousness. I think that is okay natural though. Thankfully I have been keeping use with crafting and planning and sewing to prep for the new year. Sometimes one of the hardest things for me is the fact I have so many ideas and not enough time in the run of a day to finish everything! Even an extra hour the day would be great. Let’s not forget too, as this baby is growing so is the need to run to the washroom every 2 hours at night which is drastically cutting into my sleep schedule! And on top of that while my son naps I have been, more often than not also napping too! Even an hour seem to help me feel a little bit caught up!
Here is to hoping that I can get back on track and make things happen more and more in prep for the year coming up!
