And The Winner of the Fight is...

About a week ago I had this extremely bad fight with my husband.  One I didn't think we would bounce back from.  

Two weeks ago I started taking a new medication that has really been messing with my memory and mood and it's been awful, and although our marriage is far from perfect and I'm good at picking fights,  I still feel like it was partly because of this new medication that this particular fight got so out of hand.  

Being with someone who has a mental illness is emotionally draining,  it's also emotionally draining to be a parent,  and very emotionally draining to have mental illnesses... when you're dealing with all 3, you will often find yourself running on empty... for a very very long time.  

Anyway,  I have this tendency to be extra mean when I'm angry at my spouse.  Anyone else like that? Like he will say something rude that just sets me off and I will just say any mean thing I can think of until he backs the F off. 

I just have to be right. The winner of the fight. 
I know I need to just need to be nice instead of being right... so I'm going to use that as a mantra next time my hubby tries to say something that will make me want to throw something at him. 

The good news is,  we have worked out our issues like we always do and we're doing just fine. 
Unfortunately,  I'm still on that stupid medication and have wonderful mood swings.

Do you ever have a hard time keeping your cool with your spouse during a fight? Do you just have to be right? Or are you a better person than I am? 😄

How To Do Vegas Right For Your 21st Birthday

The 21st birthday is a big one to celebrate.  You're finally out of your teens,  you can legally drink,  and you're considered an adult (more so than an 18-year-old).  
If you're going to celebrate this great phase in life,  you need to do it up right!  Vegas is the place to celebrate.  

Being a responsible adult,  you need to find some good friends that can join you on your excursion to Las Vegas.  Once you have found the right people to join you,  you must start planning. 
Hotel: There are many hotel choices when staying in Vegas.  But you MUST stay on the strip if you plan on drinking.  It makes transportation and navigating so much easier. 

Trust me,  you don't want to have to pay a taxi ride from the outskirts,  to the strip, and back.  Save that money for something better! I highly suggest staying at Mandalay Bay , or Ceasars Palace. But, if you have specific bars and places you want to go,  find out what hotel is closest to the area you will mostly be in.  It ma…

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want. 

1. Have a great emotional intelligence. 
Emotional Intelligence is something that is important to work on regardless of where you are in your life. To have or improve on emotional intelligence, you need to work on understanding both your emotions and other people's emotions.
 When your able to identify how your feeling, you are able to control them better. It will help you to be able to step back and look at…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!
