I'm Back...

Now I wanted to make my own my own way in the world of blogging and I spent a year on WordPress.org with a site host and my very own username. It was AWESOME! Hard times came and I couldn't afford to pay up for the next year.


Thing is, when you are as poor as my husband and I are, little things snowball into bigger things very quickly. My car keys got lost, the keymaker stole my card info and bought $40.00 worth of Starbucks. Not, much... but I already spent over $100.00 to get my key made! Then my card got shut down and I had to wait 3 months to get a new one. Three months of not being able to pay rent. Thankfully (I guess) we live in a horrible neighborhood and the landlord only threatened to kick us out.

Then my mother in law had her car keys disappear. And then the locksmith straight up robbedPecom

So it's been rough and my financial sacrifice is to come back to Blogger.com
Peace

A 2015 Goal Accomplished

I'm so excited and nervous about this goal happening all at once!

I'm moving to WordPress! It was a last minute thing I will admit. Self hosting isn't cheap and we all know I'm the frugal one. Last night I was checking my emails before bed and I stopped at this really great deal backed by a trusty word in the bloggy word and I thought, "why not?" so I took the plunge!

I ran into one problem. Someone snatched up my domain name before I had the chance to. And they aren't even using it, just sitting on it and waiting for me to buy.

Haha, this girl doesn't play those games. I slightly changed the name of the blog and domain name.

With that being said, please be patient and keep checking out my new domain www.budgetmk.com see what I did there? Can't force me to pay more!

Ahem

I will be pretty busy with this, my planner project and the big day in two months!

I'll be keeping everyone posted on Instagram!

Wedding Getting Way Too Close

Okay, yes it's joyful and Yayyyyyy! Only four months to go, but at the same time, I'm still trying to be the peace maker here and my wonderful fiance is hard pressed to find family to come... Not for me, but for him. He can't even find a best man.

The maid of honor has issues with people on the guest list. My Dad may not even be able to come.

I still don't have engagement photos taken, and MOH insists that they be done before invites are sent out. And invites have to be sent out early so we have an idea who is going to bother to show and come up with a backup list of guests.

Anyway there will probably be a lot of wedding rants until November. Except a book review and a coupon giveaway. Things to look forward too. Haha.

Not All Sunshine and Roses

This blog got very close to being shut down. And, not because I've taken a sudden detest for blogging. No, the journey of Mike and Kim, came precariously close to just being the journey of Kim.

There are no words to describe how bad things got. It started with a stumble in our relationship. Something we should have been able to work through. Something we were trying to find our way though.

I was lost. I believe I've mentioned this before, but Mike and I both suffer from mental illness. And in this case that was nearly our undoing... with a little help from those who would rather use not be together.

I was going days without sleep. Weeks without medication. And it just took a tilt and it all came crashing down. My brain shut off. I attempted suicide and landed in the hospital.

When I came through to the other side I realized my engagement ring was gone.

Despair took over.

Members of his family started texting me harassing hate messages. I had to block them for some sanity.

And then I got a text from him. And I realized I wasn't the only miserable one. We texted for a few days. Called for a few days. And then we snuck out for a visit with eachother.

We pieced together what happened (though there is still a lot missing).

We forgave and decided to move on.

I think sometimes in a relationship all you can do if forgive. If forgiveness would have happened at the first we would have never been through the rest.

Forgiveness isn't forgetting. Not by a long shot. Songs trigger memories. People walking down the street trigger memories. But, I choose to have faith in Mike and he is working so hard to show me that faith is not misplaced.

I'm not a relationship expert by a long shot. I'm just sharing from my heart what has been going on. And our story is still going forward.
