This month was unusually busy between my wedding anniversary and my son's birthday. It's also the month that ends up with my family sick as dogs ugh. My husband is just getting over a flu-like thingy and so far no one else has gotten it *knocks wood* My oldest son has had a tummy bug of some sort that has HIM out of sorts! Not a big appetite, not as active..yeah, that's a real giveaway that something's up. My youngest has also inherited that stomach bug and is now a complete hot mess...My second son is holding strong along with me - FOR NOW. Ugh..I dread getting sick, especially since I've been sick on and off the past few months which is unusual for me. I'm just hoping I can steer clear of these funky germs my family is dealing with right now...
My wedding anniversary was like any usual day...Oh wait, not true. LOL...We planted a vegetable garden! My hubby has been fabulous about the gardening this year. He and I aren't real fans of gardening but we love the idea of growing and harvesting our own veggies. Last year, I grew cucumbers, green peppers, strawberries, herbs and tomatoes and they were all so very delicious. There's something to be said about growing your own food - it seriously does taste better! I took a before pic but didn't take a pic of the finished product. I will once this awful rain stops and goes away already!
But with veggie gardens come pests...little woodland creature pests! Something has been chewing on our lettuce and that annoys me like you have NO IDEA! My OCD kicks in and I'm suddenly googling how to stave off these pests. I'd like to eat my own lettuce thank you very much! So now, I'm looking at my options and as gross as it sounds, I'm thinking the urine of my hubby will keep the pest away, at least for a little while LOL..Don't believe me? Look it up yourself! HAHA!!
We really celebrated that night though after a day in the yard with a childless sushi dinner and a movie. It was BLISS! I could enjoy my food and actually talk to my husband! What a novelty...We watched Star Trek Into the Darkness and it was amaze balls! Lots of action and great dialogue!
Over the same weekend as my wedding anniversary was my son's 2nd birthday. It was a great one as well filled with family and a barbecue we had for him. Let's face it, the kid only cared about the cake but he had fun knowing he had his entire family there to play with him!
With the upcoming school year ending I'm unsure how many videos I can post up. In fact, I'm kinda at a point where I'm wanting a mini break. I have all my prerecorded videos go live already and I'm not in a rush to record new ones. I had issues with a subscription service which kinda broke my mojo honestly. Now that I have received my box, I'm ready to record it and my monthly haul video and that's it. I'm not inclined to film other stuff....I don't know, I think a break is in order though. I will focus more on my blog then if that's the case. I don't mind..I find it's hard to film, edit, upload and then blog about it all. It's very time consuming which I currently am low on right now since my kids are almost done with school. A break has always done me good and I'm looking forward to just posting when I can.
As for Youtube though, I will admit that a giveaway has been piquing my mind recently. I have 50 subscribers to my channel which is mind boggling to me but I am beyond ecstatic to have! I have been playing with a few things to add to my giveaway and when the time is right, I will make a video on it and provide details.
On a last note, I have suddenly fallen victim to a new obsession...it's so absurd yet I can totally see myself falling HARD for it. When I receive my new goodies I will post about it and do a video on it as well...You have no idea, I am beyond excited it's stupid! I haven't felt such an excitement over anything in such a long time!
And that is one very long arse post! Are you still reading this? If so, kudos to ya LOL! Until next month...
