Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

I have to admit, I’ve been in a bit of a funk this week. Anxiety, stress, a lack of motivation…it seems to have all hit me at once.


The problem is, I really don’t like not being in control. Granted, I probably have too many irons in the fire, but one bad day usually means a week of catching up for me. And I hate that. I don’t have time for that.

I wrote an article a while back about Estrogen Dominance, and I have a feeling those same imbalances are starting to creep into my life again. I’ve been off my supplements for a while because of my pregnancy, so I just ordered some more from Puritan’s Pride last night. Plus, I really just need to learn to take more time for myself. I’ve been feeling very driven lately, which is great, but I tend to get tunnel vision and other aspects of my life get neglected. I need to find balance. So, I’m trying to learn to take a step back, get back into an exercise routine, and make more time for my family. Not just being with them, but being focused on them. I may need some more wine…or coffee…I’m not sure which yet.

Now on to the hop…

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
