It has been ages since my last post.
A lot has been going on in my life over the past few months.
I’ve been busy with cosmetology school which is really like work except I don’t get paid. (We can accept tips, but those certainly would not pay the bills if need be. Thankfully, Hubs has a great job that allows for my current lack of income.) I’m still very much in love with my career choice and I am excited to see what the future brings for me!
That being said, the past nine weeks and five days have been especially rough on me. Why? Well, Hubs and I are expecting Kid #2 aka Edamame. The nickname would make more sense if you saw the first ultrasound. At nine weeks, the baby looks like a little soybean… hence the nickname Edamame. I will make this stick.
The Kid is very excited about becoming a big brother. So excited that for a while he’d been hoping for twins. He told everyone who would listen that his momma may be having twins. He was a bit disappointed when Hubs and I showed him the ultrasound picture confirming that there is only one soybean camping out in my uterus. The Kid is happy nonetheless.
So, that’s pretty much where I’ve been. With all that’s going on, blogging took a back seat. The backseat near the restroom in one of those huge charter busses.
I have dearly missed this blog. I’ve still been reading up a storm. I always make time for a good book or two or three.
I’ll admit that I’ve been slacking on my tea drinking. Edamame has proven to be a picky baby, so I have to be pretty picky myself. I haven’t drank any of my teas for fear that I won’t be able to keep them down. I may have to get over that fear and just brew a cup.
And as far as baking… that hasn’t happened since my last post. Being busy paired with random bouts of pregnancy induced food aversion has kept me away from the oven. I miss baking as much as I miss blogging. I hadn’t realized how much I loved it until I stopped. I’m ready to get back into it.
To be honest, I know it will be slow going. The first trimester is the hardest because my energy levels are pretty much nonexistent. Hubs has done a pretty good job of picking up the slack. Bless his heart, he tries. Even so, I want to get this blog hopping again. There will be a change in my scheduling to help me stay consistent. I’m cutting back my posts from three to one each week. Expect a post every Sunday. The content will remain the same. This blog is all about tea, cookies and books. Every now and then I may try my hand at baking other delicious-with-tea sweets, but cookies will be my main focus.
On another note, I am considering starting a second blog that is more focused on life as a young wife and mom. (I have to remind myself that nearly 27 is still very young in the scheme of things.) So, be on the lookout for that if you happen to be interested.
Anyway, tune in tomorrow for the official Tea Stains and Cookie Crumbs comeback!
Hasta mañana! ^____^
