Sorry, Updates and Friday Blog Hops

Good Friday morning to all of you.  First of all I want to apologize for the lack of updates and such on this blog.  It has been a crazy last part of the year and a crazy start to the new year as well.  We continue to have problems with our 8 year old daughter and the ADHD.  She is now on medication and after over a month and have to increase the dosage, it still isn't having the effects that we would like it to have.  The battle continues for sure and it hasn't been an easy thing to live with.  She is constantly fighting with us over simple things like doing homework, taking showers, and picking up her room.  We are always hearing things like "I hate you" and "I hate my life" among other things that don't need to be repeated.  The youngest is getting ready to start potty training and is also going through watching her sister's behavior, so she is picking up on certain actions and words.  My job is in limbo right now as well.  I am not sure if I want to continue working or quit to come back home and be mommy again.  I have been debating this for several weeks as my aunt (whom I work with) is retiring in June and it will be hard in my current position to work without her, there will be more responsibility at my job that I am not sure I want to take on.  My babysitting situation has been all over the map and I am having a hard time finding someone that I am comfortable with and doesn't demand a lot of money.  I also recently joined a gym for the first time ever and am eager to start my weight loss journey, which I would love to feature here on my blog.  I have been overweight pretty much all of my life, have been on so many different diets where I have started and then after a few days or a week, I just give up.  I want to get fit and healthy not only for myself, but for my girls so I will be around a long time for them.  Sorry to vent, but I wanted all of my loyal followers of this blog to know what has been going on in my life and the reasons behind why there hasn't been much going on here at Mommy2TwoGirls recently.  I first started this blog as an outlet to talk about my girls and life in general with a little fun mixed in.  Then this blog became my third child and grew into something that I was really proud of and I put a lot of work and dedication into it.  Recently, Due to life in general and maybe a little lack of passion for it, I haven't put my heart into it like I really want to.  I had thought seriously about shutting down Mommy2TwoGirls, but after a serious talk with my husband who has been a HUGE supporter of my blog and what I have done, he told me to keep my blog and "get back to work".  When I was at home all of the time, he himself was really proud of what I accomplished on this blog and still often asks me about it and what is going on.  I have told him "not too much" as I just haven't had the time on the computer like I used to.  At the end of this month, he is buying me a laptop, which I am hoping will make things a little easier, especially when I am on the go and maybe sneak a little time at work.  I am hoping to find my passion for blogging again and to once again make this blog one of my priorities.  Trust me, it has been fun!  I am hoping to get more reviews, giveaways and other opportunities for YOU, my loyal readers and followers.  I have noticed that there have been at least 5 followers over the past few weeks that have left me, and I can imagine it is due to the fact that there hasn't been any new content for them to enjoy.  For that I apologize.  I have made a lot of New Year's resolutions this one, one that I fully plan on sticking and committing to.  Making this blog bigger and better than ever is one that I want to succeed at.  Thank you all who have stuck with me and helped me along the way.  I will NOT disappoint you!

Now onto some fun Friday Blogs Hops!  Have a great weekend!
