Life lately

Today is day #28 of the Blogtember Challenge and today's prompt is: What were your highs and lows for the month?

HIGH - I got to go to a comedy show with my mom last weekend.  My mom is my best friend so I love having our girl's nights.  I also got to have a much needed baby-free date day with my husband a couple weeks ago. (Post about that tomorrow)

HIGH - Paige had her 18 month check up and the doctor said she is very advanced for her age.  Her height and weight were perfect too.  Yayy parenting win!!

LOW - Unfortunately, I've had a few health problems lately.  If you read THIS POST then you probably remember me saying that I've been having sudden vision loss where I lose almost all of my vision for up to 40 minutes at a time.  I've been to 2 specialists and they are both saying that it is "migraine with aura" or "ocular migraines".  The headache specialist basically told me that I will suffer with them my whole life and there is nothing they can do or give me to prevent them.....  so that sucks.  My husband is making me see another specialist to get some bloodwork to make sure that it's not some nutrient that I'm missing causing me to get these headaches... so we will see.

HIGH - This one sort of goes along with the last one...  but it's more positive.  When I went to the Retina Specialist for my vision loss problems, she did a bunch of different test and confirmed that there is nothing wrong with my eyes.  So my biggest fear, that I was going to lose my vision completely one of these times, was alleviated.  Thank goodness!!

LOW - Along with these crazy headache and vision problems, I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping lately.  I suffered from insomnia for a very long time, but I am worried that it is coming back.  Also, lack of sleep can bring on my crazy headaches....double boo!

HIGH - Two job openings that would be absolutely PERFECT for me opened up recently, so fingers crossed that I will be hearing back from one of them soon!!

HIGH - It's FALL!!!  I love Fall.  This is my favorite time of year.  I love it because it feels like it kicks off the long holiday season.  First my birthday Oct 29th (even tho I'm turning 30 this year, yuck!), Halloween, my hubby's birthday, Thanksgiving, ahem Black Friday shopping!, and CHRISTMAS, then New Year's!!  It's like a never-ending party!!

HIGH - I won my first giveaway ever!!  I never win anything, so I was so happy!  I won this amazingly cute quote from The Artsy Apple.  Thank you so much again!!  It is now hanging in my art studio for inspiration!

So it looks like I have more "Highs" than "Lows".  How has your month been going??


  1. Glad the new specialist was able to eliminate permanent eye issues!! And loving what you won!! That is gorgeous!!!!

  2. Sorry to hear that you have had some health issues this month! Praying all is good now! Yay for fall, giveaways, & awesome kids! :P

  3. It has definitely been a rough month health-wise but hopefully we can figure something out soon. And thank you so much!

  4. Thanks Julie!! I love my new wall art in my studio! She did a great job! And yes, it's a huge relief to hear that there is not permanent damage to my eyes. That's one of the scariest things ever.

  5. Great that you have more highs than lows! Hoping your migraine issue is sorted soon xxx
