Good morning my voodoo babies,
Happy Sunday to all! I hope all of my followers and readers are having a great last day to their weekend. I woke up on the right side of the bed today, Sage slept until about 9:30ish and then woke up to feed and then fell right back asleep. I love that she’s sleeping longer and longer now, it’s good for her as she’s constantly growing. She’s getting so big so fast and it’s so heartbreaking. I want her to stay a little baby forever. Soon she’ll be walking and I don’t know if I’m emotionally ready for that yet, she’s almost perfected holding her head up and I’m kind of dying on the inside.
It’s now the late evening and I’ve sort of abandoned this post because my adult duties got in the way. I went on a successful grocery shop with the baby and my mother in law – our fridge and cupboards are full to the brim with yummy food and that makes me happy.
I’m constantly being reminded that there are some people in this world who have literally nothing better to do than to monitor your posts and life like it’s their day job. I’ve had the same problem person creep in and out of my life for the last year or so and to be honest it’s really pathetic how much this person tries to emulate my life. I never asked to be copied or, for lack of a better word, idolized but here we are. It makes for good entertainment but when I receive a plethora of messages from people I don’t even talk to and even my friends pointing out that something of mine has been copied again, or that said person is being a keyboard warrior, it starts to turn from cheap entertainment to an annoyance real quick. I have no care in the world for this person but they keep trying to make themselves a prominent figure in my life, quite a pitiful attempt at trying to remain relevant to those who’ve clearly moved on from their snaky mind games and conniving, deceiving personality. To them, any attention whether it be negative or positive is exactly what they crave, which is really sad, it’s sad they have to make up lies, over compensate, and fabricate truths in their own lives and also try and steal the life of another in order to be happy. Try as they may, though, I won’t let it get under my skin, after all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
It’s hard to believe that Yule is next week. When I was younger it used to seem like I waited forever for this magical holiday and now that I’m an adult with a baby it’s coming way too fast. Aside from a few gifts left to buy for friends and family we are all set for Yule. I’m going to be so sad when I have to take down all the beautiful decorations, our home looks so warm and cozy with the tree, our stockings and all the pretty lights. We are going to see my step-dads family on Christmas Eve and it’ll be their first time seeing Sage which I am very excited for. Mostly I’m excited for Sage to wear her cute Christmas dress, I don’t get to dress her up much so when the opportunity strikes I take advantage of it. Christmas day is spent at my in-laws house and then Boxing Day is usually spent with my side of the family. Needless to say this is a very busy time of the year for the Hogg Household. Parts of me will be glad once it’s over.
I also have a few Witchy things planned for the Yule Season. Just a few chants, some candle magick and a little spell for a prosperous and happy New Year. It’s my first Yule ceremony I’ve done in a long time, I didn’t do one last year because I was really depressed about my grandparents not being around. This year I’m feeling a little more up to it and therefore my intentions will be pure and not filled with sad or negative feelings. The only thing that would make this holiday season better is a visit from my Witchmate, which I know will be soon. It’s been a minute since our last visit and that was when I was still pregnant. I’m beyond excited for her to meet her Niece/Goddaughter, I’m excited for Sage to know the incredible woman I’ve dubbed to be her Godmother – I know Sam will teach her so much and will be one of the best role models that Sage has in her life. I am so thankful for my Witchmate, my sister, and best friend. She truly is a gem in my life and I am so glad to have her as not only a big part of my life but a big part in my daughters life.
With that my lovelies, this post is at an end, Cody just headed out for a quick clean up shift and dinner needs to be started; on tonight’s menu: shake and bake chicken with hashbrown casserole. Yummy yum. Until next post.
remember to keep it surreal my dudes,
