It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, and I know I have some explaining to do. I wish there was just one simple answer, but there isn’t. I’ve been so busy, overwhelmed, and just plain stressed out the past few weeks, that I just haven’t had any time to write. Not to mention, I haven’t really known WHAT to write about lately. I’ve been considering shutting down Stuck on Kitchen Floor, just because I’m at a point where I don’t really know what to say, I don’t know what to do with this blog anymore. But I feel like that would be quitting on something therapeutic that has helped me through the past couple years. I’d be embarrassed if I quit now.
When I first started this blog, I wanted this to be a place where I could share my daily struggles, my thoughts, and find people going through similar struggles in life. It’s been two years, and the only people that read my posts are a couple family members and a few friends. (I am INCREDIBLY honored and thankful to you reading this now!!!!) But I wanted this to be more.. public. To be able to be shared and reach people all across the world. Now I don’t want to be famous, I don’t want to make money off on my blog, I would just like to create a place where I can share my thoughts, my travels, and my life story as I’m creating it.
It might take me awhile, so I’m asking you to be patient. I’m trying to figure out what my goals are with Stuck on The Kitchen Floor, and how to make it happen. So many parts of my life are changing, and this part is changing as well. I hope when I’m finished, when I am satisfied with the way this blog is coming together, that you are still reading this.
See you soon!

With the holidays quickly approaching (how did Christmas sneak up on me this year?!) I’ve been so stressed with working, planning vacations, shopping for presents, and spending time with my loved ones. I’ll be doing the best I can to keep up with my three posts each week, but I can’t make any promises. I hope you all are enjoying the holidays with your family and friends, travel safe, and can’t wait to share my holiday adventures with you all!
Okay, is anyone stressing this holiday season?!
It’s just coming up way too quick. I feel like just last week it was Valentine’s Day, and now here we are- full on Christmas spirit. Where did the year go? But I can’t seem to find my Christmas spirit just yet. It must be buried underneath the holiday stress that creeped up out of nowhere.
I miss those days where the biggest stress was passing Biology and getting those new jeans you’ve been BEGGING for for Christmas. I’d do anything to have that stress again. Now it’s the stress of working enough so you can pay all your bills but not working too much so you can actually see your family for the holidays, trying not to gain the dreaded holiday weight, buying Christmas presents for all the members of your family, having the days off for family/friends vacations and holiday parties, and not to mention find the time to put up your favorite winter decorations. Oh, and did I forget sleep? What is sleep nowadays? I couldn’t tell you the last time I didn’t have to set an alarm to get up insanely early.
Is anyone else having a hard time with this holiday season? What are your tips and tricks to just stop and enjoy the moment without stressing about your to-do list? I just want to enjoy the holidays with my loved ones.
