a recap of 2015. The year my head exploded.

2015 will be remembered by me as the year my husband quit his job and the year my head exploded. Well not my entire head, just a part of it. Mr. Yardsalequeen is calling it a retirement, I am calling it quitting. Who quits a hefty six figure income job? My husband, that's who. And we have to plan on providing for Jacob for the rest of his life - since he is a special needs child and I don't see him ever making a six figure income.

That that means my husband is home with me EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE WEEK. And he doesn't like thrift stores nor does he want me going to thrift stores or yardsales. So did I mention he is here with me, every single day. That means all the time.

In a totally unrelated topic, I have been binge watching the tv show "Snapped". Yep, totally unrelated.

About a month after he quit his job, I noticed one of my eyes wasn't seeing quite the same, so after the fiasco with his quitting and losing our health insurance, I had to wait to see an eye doctor. When I looked out of both eyes, I could see fine, but if I closed one eye, I could tell the difference. The doc told me I had a retina vein occlusion and would need shots in my eye to possibly help. Basically a vein exploded in my eye, causing the cloudiness. I think it is caused by stress. Was it a coincidence that my head exploded a month after Mr. YSQ quits his job? I don't think so. I think they are related. My eyes were fine when he was working. And the shots that get put directly in my eyeball have helped, so my vision seems back to normal. But it is something that will need ongoing maintenance.

What a fun 2015. But at least I had a few good months in there the first half of the year.

The struggle is real.

Yep, I'm still here

And I did see Rachael Ray and got to talk to her for a second. Sorry for the lack of posts in forever.

I got tickets to see Rachael Ray!

Wow, I can't believe this is my first post in 2015. I will blame in on a writer's block or perhaps laziness.

As usual, I will be taking a trip to upstate NY for Jacob's spring break to visit family. Anyhow I saw that when I will be there, there will be a charity fundraising event with Rachael Ray. So I sent my sister on a mission today to buy tickets. She said people had been camping out since midnight. Luckily she got us tickets before they got sold out.
