Hello there, my friends.
It has been a while since I have written a blog post. Life happens. 2017 was a hard year for our family. We lost my father-in-law in February, then my husband’s little sister on April 21st, and then his little brother on December 8th. I know….. It was hard. What can I say? Those things added to some chronic stress that was already there and it finally boiled over in me and I had to take a real break. I did minimal work for my Longhorn Prairie business. I didn’t go anywhere, just relaxed some.
After addressing some nutritional deficiencies, sleep disorders & anxiety disorder and depression that all stemmed from bad diet & stress I can finally say that I am starting to feel like myself again. It is strange because I spent a long time feeling frustrated and exhausted. I also got my hair done and got new glasses….the little things a lady needs to feel good about herself.
If you follow me on instagram or facebook you may have seen me post from time to time and therefore know that I am still at it.
I would like to get my social media presence back to what it used to be and crank new designs out a little more often. I do have several that I have been working on. No time table on when those will be done. I do have 5 kids that I homeschool so designing patterns happens when it happens. It is not quite the highest priority at the moment.
My almost-3-year-old is now potty trained but he still gets into stuff and tries to “escape”. So I still have to give him a lot of attention.
Since the “season of crisis” seems to have stopped, hopefully, now I can put more time into designing patterns and making custom orders for people.
If you read this far I thank you for taking an interest in how I have been.
