TGIF Week End Wrap Up
So as a kid I suffered from bad migraines and truth be told, the medication I was given didn’t help all that much and may have caused more harm than good (Let’s just say I didn’t have a heart murmur before I started those meds). Now I don’t get them as often or as strong and I manage them with more natural remedies. Along with the heart condition I now have, I also get dizzy spells every now and again. Sadly, I got one going into the bathroom at the house on Sunday night and fell forward. I hit my cheek on the sink and had to sit down for 45 minutes on the floor before I could get up and wake my mom. The skin didn’t break but I have a peach sized bruise on my face. Needless to say I refuse to leave the house lest someone think I’m being beaten at home. And I don’t like people staring at me so yeah, I don’t want to leave the house until it heals. It hurts like the devil even now but with alternating treatments of hot and cold compresses and apple cider vinegar the swelling has gone down and the bruise isn’t as dark as it originally was. It’s still pretty noticeable but it doesn’t look like I painted my face in camo paint.
I also started to de-clutter the room we live in. I’ve mentioned that my mom and I want to move up north but what I haven’t mentioned is that we want to do the Tiny House thing. Nothing too small and definitely not on wheels unless it’s all we can afford but we’re looking for a place that’s no bigger than 700 sq feet. We’ve decided that we don’t want to do the long ass mortgage or the high ass payments. We’ve done tons of research and found a few neighborhoods with houses around that size with prices that we could see ourselves doing. In order to do that though, we’d have to get rid of A LOT of our stuff. When my mom got divorced she and I moved out of a four bedroom, two story house and took most of the stuff in it with us. We don’t need all that anymore since for the past six years we’ve lived with only the stuff in the room with us and minimal amount of clothing for us to choose from. It’s simpler and less stressful plus, I’m not domestically inclined. I hate looking after household chores (Unless it is yard work, then I don’t mind so much), and I despise spending more than a handful of hours a week cleaning or dusting knickknacks. So yeah, it’s a small/tiny house for us. I’m ready to try something new that will give me more freedom and not feel so traditional or constricted.
