Es La Hora Del Chisme is my take on Jamie’s If We’re Having Coffee. Es La Hora Del Chisme (translates to It’s The Gossip Hour) is where I share with you a little bit of what is happening behind the blog. When I rebranded my blog, I wanted to share more of my personal life and I haven’t really done that but I’m at a point in my life where I want to share with you what is going on with me.

So please, get something to drink so I can share with you all the chisme going on in my life. Right now, I’m drinking a Jack Daniels Country Cocktails in Berry Bunch. I love Jack Daniels Country Cocktails and this one is one of my favorites.

Comadre let me tell you… the Littles started school on Monday. Little 1 is in First Grade and Little 2 is in Kinder. They’ve given me a bit of trouble getting up in the mornings but I think after a week or two of school, they’ll be use to it. Little 3 isn’t in school yet because of her birthday so she’s enjoying being spoiled by my grandparents.

Comadre let me tell you… Little 1 is now playing tackle football and my life now revolves around football practice and football activities. I’m still going to try and find activities for Little 2 and Little 3 because I don’t think it is fair that only Little 1 gets to play sports and they don’t.

Comadre let me tell you… with Little 1 being in football, we don’t get home until after 7:30 pm. I’m going to start looking into crockpot dinners so that way we don’t eat so late. Do you have a favorite recipe? If so, send it to me!

Comadre let me tell you… my co-worker put her two weeks in and I don’t know what that means for me. I’m not sure if that means, they’ll move me to full time or they’ll hire another girl to be part time. I’m conflicted on this. I want full time because of the money but also I don’t because that means less time with the kids. I have two days off during the week so I feel like it’ll take time from them and I already feel spread thin so I don’t know. I really don’t.

Comadre let me tell you… I kind of stopped using my bullet journal. I started feeling a disconnection with my journal a while ago and I bought this adorable planner at Michael’s that I’ve been using. Plus I started using Habitica to track my habits, Plant Nanny to track my water intake and TV time to track the shows I’m watching. So I feel like I’m in this weird hybrid zone of planning.

Comadre let me tell you… I took the Littles to the dentist and Little 1 and Little 2 have broken teeth and I’m not even sure how that happened. Little 3 had perfect teeth because she brushes her teeth 10000000x a day.

Comadre let me tell you… I started watching Arrow on Netflix. And I’m enjoying it so far.

Comadre let me tell you… I made the switch to Vegan shampoo and natural deodorant and I feel like a new person. My hair feels great and I don’t smell anymore when I sweat.

Comadre let me tell you… I’ve been feeling really spread thin. As many of you know, my husband is in jail (it’s a work release program but it’s still considered jail) so it is just me and the kids in another state. And it is hard. With school starting, I felt like the whole week I was running around without my head on. Little 1 told me I was the worst mommy ever, Little 3 said I ruined her life so I’m just feeling down.

Comadre let me tell you… I started meditating and doing some yoga in the mornings and at night. I count it as “me time”. I’ve been using Inscape for my mediation and I really enjoy it but not enough to pay for it yet. I feel like once I start using it a lot then I’ll start paying for it.

Comadre let me tell you…I’m currently listening to Reflection by Elizabeth Lim. And it is so good, I really enjoy the story. I borrowed the audiobook and I am really enjoying the narrator and the story. It is so intriguing.

Comadre let me tell you… I started working on that NaNoWriMo project from 2017 again. I feel like I have a better idea where I want this story to go and I’m excited to finally sit down and write. I just need to force myself to write. I think if I possibly force myself to talk about it on the blog and have ya’ll hold me accountable then

Comadre let me tell you… My house is falling apart. My fan broke the other day, one of the things that make it spin flew off. We were able to fix it but now I’m scared to turn on my fan. Then my TV broke. You can only hear it but not see it. It’s an old TV like 14 years old kinda old so I guess we got our money’s worth. Then the AC hasn’t been working properly or maybe Texas is just that hot, I’m not sure but it is hot inside my house. And to top it off my stove broke. The knob to the oven broke so we can’t use the oven and I bake a lot of our food so that’s had me looking up new things to try so I guess that’s a good thing.

Comadre let me tell you… If you’d like to support As Told By Tina, you can now! We’re having a bit of money issues so I’m not sure how I’m going to keep this blog going but you can support me by donating here.

So Tell Me, if we sat down for some chisme, what would you tell me?
