Currently, March Edition

Here's what I'm thinking, feeling, seeing, enjoying and hating... Currently


I always seem to post these posts when "life gets in the way" and I don't have time to take photos for more "blogger type" of content. Here we are, in quarantine, with four kids home and out of school indefinitely. It's been raining nearly the whole time, because why not be super miserable when you're miserable, right?! Ughhhh. So here we are, in the strangest time in my adult life - maybe even whole life (9/11 was pretty weird too) locked up in our house. With everyone home, it's really hard to get good photos, it's hard for my husband to make phone calls and conduct webinars, it's hard for the twins to nap, it's just all hard right now. In reality, it's not that hard, it's all a first world problem because we have shelter and food and even entertainment. But as an extrovert, I'm telling you THIS IS HARD. Lots of quick change. Here's what's been going on around here, currently:

Enjoying: 
Reading at night, because I'm sick of screen time/the news/social media. I've got book lists here and here if you want to add them to your next Amazon order. Cooking dinner at home every night has also been fun. I really do love to cook. Plus, we're actually saving money not eating out as much! My kid's newfound love for bug hunting. We got them head lights and magnify glasses and they've had a blast looking for bugs inside and outside. They found a small spider in my kitchen as I was cooking dinner, so I stepped on it and they said, "No! He was just looking for his mommy!" Oops.

My kids' homeschool science education is at least on point.

Watching:
The news. Just like everyone else. For the first couple of days, I was attached to social media and realized that was a massive mistake. I've since knocked that off for my own mental health (pandemic or not, social media is NOT a good place to spend the majority of your time!) and now just read the news once a day and watch the evening news. I hope to even cut that down! I'm at the point of information over load. 

Doing:
At home workouts. I've never been a fan of them - I LOVE group fitness classes, feeding off the energy of others and listening to loud music. But since that can't happen right now, I'm watching online fitness videos from my bedroom. Lots of my friends are fitness or yoga teachers and have taken to doing online stuff, so it's fun to support them and still get my workouts in. In fact, I've worked out every day this week when I normally only workout 4x a week.

If you're looking for amazing FREE at home workout vids, my personal friend and Pilates studio owner is putting 5, 10 and 20 minute versions of her studio work outs, which are some of my fave workouts! Click here to check it out.

Loving:
Running my second Instagram account, Uncomplicatedlifeblogoils! It's taking off so fast, and the community there is full of amazing people. I've never much enjoyed IG - it always felt so fake to me. People following to get followed, commenting to drive up their own engagement... But this account is full of people who are interested in learning, building community and supporting each other as we grow our healthiest lives together. It's really been a joy. If you're interested in learning about more natural practices in your life, go follow! You're welcome there with us, even if you're a newbie.

I do a series on MLM oil comparisons, do themed posts like "skincare" and "ways to de-stress" and all sorts of other stuff - even non-oily stuff. Come follow along!

Hating:
Pinterest. Overnight, they marked my website as spam and I went from my normal page views per day to a few hundred to it's lowest point - 78. A whole 78 page views a day! I died. I knew immediately it was Pinterest traffic but I thought they had changed the algorithm on me and I hadn't adapted fast enough. Then a whole week later (embarrassingly enough, yes it took me a whole week to realize this) I found out my whole site was blocked as spam on Pinterest. This can happen by accident when Pinterest cleans out spam accounts - regularly, "good" accounts get cleared with them. Like mine did. And it completely ruined my page views AND my affiliate sales AND my ad sales for the month. Fun times, the life of a blogger.

To their credit, as soon as I realized the issue and got a hold of the right people, they had it repaired in a matter of hours. While it was stressful, the fix was relatively easy and they were quite fast to respond to my demands. So, it's a love/hate relationship, and I'm happy to report it's back on the love side.

Pondering: 
When this will all end. I need a manicure and a pedicure BADLY. First world problems for sure, but good God can I just be let out of my house for a nail appointment?! Please?

Hope you all hang in there during this INSANE time! I hope to be able to continue to produce content and be a source of normalcy. This week, I just couldn't muster it with all the abrupt change. Next week, I'm hoping to do and be better. Time will tell.

  2. These conversations are not so incredible for somebody to chip away at keurig cappuccino.. This is on the grounds that they are very gruff and nothing is told on them. They are misdirecting every one of us.

  3. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: Emutemple@gmail.com or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.

  4. Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Edes herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past 3 years but Dr Edes cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from Herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs, Thanks. Write him on WhatsApp on +2348151937428. @dr_edes_remedies deals with
    (1)Alzheimer virus
    (2)Cancer
    (3)HIV
    (4)Herpes
    (5)Genital warts
    (6)ALS
    (7)Virginal infection
    (8)HPV
    (9)Hepatitis
    (10)Asthma
