LIFE UPDATE! (Allergies, College, Puppies, and Cantaloupe)

It’s been a while since you guys heard from me. I mean, I’ve posted some motivational material and took part in a wonderful conference, but you weren’t really hearing from me in those posts. And we’re due for a life update.

If you follow my writers’ blog or you follow me on Instagram, then you already know, but just in case you don’t (yes, I left you out, I’m sorry), then here goes:

I was accepted to college.

As you know, this has been a tough journey for me due to my food allergies, among other things. But I was accepted, and after a momentary panic (๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ), I made the decision to go. *internal screaming*

That’s definitely the biggest update I have, but there are a few more important ones.

ALLERGIES
So, my allergies have been up and down a lot over the past few months. I’ve had a lot of minor reactions, a couple stronger ones, but we’ve been able to explain most of them. My immune system had seemed to be improving, and I was SO grateful. Unfortunately, I came down with a bad sore throat/chest cold, and my diet hasn’t been too great since then. (Working on it.) #justbeingreal

PUPPIES!
Our Goldendoodle, Phoenix, will most likely be having pups in April, so . . . sweetness!! โค โค ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ

The pups will be born and be ready to sell at just the right time to provide a little more college financing. I’m also planning to retain one pup to train intensively for an additional four+ weeks. That pup will be available, all training and socialization started, just before I leave for college.

ORAL ALLERGY SYNDROME (a.k.a I miss cantaloupe)
I’ve been able to eat more citrus lately without much of a problem from my oral allergy. So we’re happy! Citrus is a good immune booster. I haven’t tried cantaloupe again, but honeydew has proved to be a satisfying melon replacement. ๐Ÿ˜‰

BLOGGING
I know, I know. I’ve been neglecting this blog big time. But I’m presently working on some ideas to change that, and I should be able to launch them in a couple weeks. Meantime, I’m going to make an effort to post more. (*waits to hear cheering* ๐Ÿ˜‰)

But seriously, it is important to me to keep this blog going (though it may have looked otherwise) and it’s important to me to continue to connect with you guys. I’ve been going through a pretty rough few months here, and keeping up with blogging was not a priority. I’m so thankful for all of you who have stuck with me. Hang in there a little longer.ย 

Also, if you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, now is the time to do it. I’ve vanished from your inboxes long enough.ย ๐Ÿ™„ I do have a newsletter coming out in the next day or so.

So what’s been going on for all of you? Any prayer requests or praises? Let’s chat in the comments! I want to catch up. โค Peace out.
