10 Bitmojis that Describe My Life at the Moment
In the last few months I went from a part time job waiting tables to being a full-time business owner with my husband. 12 hours a day. Every day. No weekends. No vacations. And while it will get better when we are able to hire someone to manage things, for right now things are a little cray-cray.
I love food. The first time I met my husband’s parents for dinner I had already eaten dinner. When after the meal I confessed that I had eaten two dinners because I really wanted to meet them, they laughed pretty hard and said I was perfect. Later on, my husband even created the acronym IWALOF for me because before he would start cooking something I would remind him that I wanted alot of food… thus, “I Want A Lot of Food” was born. (And, yes I know alot is one word. I’m talking about an actual lot of food. That I will lie upon just like my Bitmoji.)
Why is my Bitmoji on another planet you ask? Because she has A.D.D. and often finds herself daydreaming, unable to focus on listening because a good song just started playing and my brain is analyzing it, or obsessed with a new hobby. Earth to Jackie….
My house is filled with sweet little drawings from my stepson. We love to create all kinds of things. Board games, stories, characters… anything our imaginations desire!
Ugh, not one of my favorite things. Having to drop everything I’m doing to run out of the house and take care of business.
My poor husband hears me say this on the daily. I get distracted easily… I forget things… I’m getting better! But I’ve learned I have to write EVERYTHING down or it will never ever get done.
Awake at 3 AM typing an idea for a blog on my phone, coming up with an urgent new creative idea, thinking of solutions to existing problems, stressing about something… one of many of the reasons why I didn’t sleep last night. *Tries natural sleeping aid for a few weeks. Causes side effects worse than not being able to sleep.* Sigh. Looks like we’re going to listen to 40 chapters of the book of Isaiah again tonight!
Working It! I’ve been loving going to the gym as much as possible, and if I can’t go to the gym I go on bike rides with my pup. Since we are full-time business owners it means we’re always on call. I can’t really go out for more than a couple hours at a time, (unless I want to conduct really tedious business and detailed spread sheets all from my phone), but I can go to the gym on work on fitness in the morning when business is slow. And I’ve found that it’s the best place to burn off stress and push my body– NOT to be skinnier, Heavens no, but to be flexible, stronger, and toned. #strongisthenewskinny
Yes, it’s a corny cliché that people throw around, but I mean it. I’m truly blessed! Thankful everyday for the life Jesus gave me. Every week I pinch myself that He gave me the perfect husband who has been radically saved by Jesus in such an amazing way. His testimony is amazing. And our faith is the deepest foundation of our relationship. We love watching how God works in our lives and seeing how unbelievably real He is.
He has been so faithful to me. He has brought me a long way since my youth. He has never abandoned me. He always provides what I cannot provide myself. He reveals Himself to me more and more as I desire to know Him deeper. He has solidified my faith, past the point of any doubts. I am secure in Jesus Christ. Because of Him I am Covered in Scarlet!
