8 More Weeks

leaving nyc
We just finished a crazy month that included Amelia’s birthday, an LA trip, and a Washington D.C. trip.

Now that we are back, I can definitely see that NYC is what’s been making me so depressed. The second we arrived, I felt a sinking in my stomach as I went back to my normal routine. The good news is we only have 8 weeks left here.

My goal is to have fun, de-clutter, and try to leave some of my unhelpful habits in New York. It’s really hard to give up the negative New York mentality but I really want to.

I joined a new website called Happify which I love! It’s a website that has games and activities to help you think more positively. I have been in and out of therapy, been on medication, and tried various other methods to feel better but nothing has ever made me feel better. I feel like those methods just allow me to wallow in my issues or forget them. Happify helps you address your problems with fun mindless games that can really help a goal oriented competitive person(me) get out of a slump.

So hopefully, my blog will turn into a more positive place soon 🙂

        I know you’ve GOT to be excited!!!
        I’m excited for you!!!

        We were recently displaced because of the morons upstairs from us…
        They started a grease fire in their apartment by leaving French fries unattended on the stove… So we were in a hotel for 3 days!!!
        It was kind of a nightmare being displaced like that, unexpectedly… We had to rush out with Ian and the dog… It was just myself and my 14yr.old at home at the time…
        It was craziness…
        We have holes in our ceiling and my floors are still a mess after mopping them 5 times!!!
        I can’t wait to move!!!
        Please send me all your moving tips!!!
