Random Discoveries

Today was a big milestone moment for me… I had my one-month post-op check up with the neurosurgeon and I was so damn nervous about what the results would be.

The last week or so I’ve had a little bit of pain and swelling as well as some bruising along my back that I have no idea where came from. I was so scared that I was going to go in and have the doctor tell me I was the 1 in 3 (Who am I kidding… it seems like I’m always the unlucky 1 in 3 if it’s a possibility!) and was going to have to have the second surgery.

Under Construction

I know that I’ve been gone for quite a while… things around here have been pretty insane. Mix that with the negative comments I mentioned in my post, Shame On Me, and I sort of just stopped writing on here. I let myself focus on being a mom and actually managed to self-publish not one but TWO paranormal romance novels, they are both available on Amazon! (I’m working on the third now!)

But now… I feel the need to get back to my blog. To stop allowing people’s negative thoughts get to me and be myself. I used to have so much fun with Southern Mess Moms and I want that again. I promise that I will have some new content available for you guys soon and slowly but surely get all of the old content organized in a way that you can actually find it again… it’s just going to take me a little time.

There are some pretty awesome things in the works for Southern Mess Moms and I can’t wait for you guys to join me on my Journey to a new me and all of the other fun things that will come along with it!
