Oh my it's been so busy since I was last on this blog, I've missed it but have also lost my way a little with self reliance. I now work 3 part-time jobs and with all the added sports travel I do for son No.2, I have to admit have fallen into more of a BLEH state of mind.
Our healthy clean eating plan has suffered, making household items and food from scratch has suffered and financially we have suffered due to this. It makes me sad for what I have just let go over the last 6 months but now I'm back on track and determined to live a simple, healthy, productive lifestyle once again.
Of course as the seasons change, we change and life does get busier for some. Financially it made sense for me to take on more work outside of the home, son No.1 finished year 12 last year and turned 18 last month, we lost quite a bit of financial support with this happening but he still lives at home so the expenses are certainly still there. I'm not complaining, I'm grateful that we live in a country that supports families financially and now with all 3 kids getting older, I am able to work a little more to help support our family.
So I'm happy to be back on this blog and sharing how I go about making our lives simpler, cleaner and environmentally friendlier.
