Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
We went from a busy day filled with excitement yesterday, to a day where we were all exhausted and worn out today.
I hate to admit it, but I literally stayed in my pajamas all day long today. I was so tired from the moment I rolled out of bed this morning, and the feeling never went away. It was crazy, because it wasn't like we did anything out of the ordinary yesterday, and I actually went to bed early last night, but I guess all of the excitement took a toll on me mentally. I was also baking for the past two days, so I guess that wore me out as well. Still, I think that one day of being completely lazy is enough, and I'm looking forward to showering and getting dressed tomorrow.... I might even leave the house at some point! We'll have to see how that goes though, so don't hold me to that!
Amazingly enough, even though I was exhausted (and I'm pretty sure my parents were wiped out too), the girls still seemed to be full of energy. In fact, to give them a chance to burn off some of that energy, my dad decided to take my sisters swimming after they got home from school. That's right, it's November 3rd and we can still use the pool in our backyard! How weird is that? People back in New York are putting their heat on and we're down here in 90+ degree weather with the air on and going swimming! I'm loving Florida weather!
What's also pretty cool about Florida is the fact that there are so many different creatures down here than there are in New York. I've posted before about the fact that there are a ton of lizards here. Well today we discovered that the lizards can somehow make it through the ceiling into the skylights in our living room... We were watching television and something caught my eye. I looked up and there was a lizard crawling around up there! Luckily it must have made its way back out the way it came in, because it disappeared after a while. It's certainly more fun to see a lizard in the house than any kind of bug, especially when it's trapped up in a skylight where it can't get to you.
Alright, I can't believe that it's only Tuesday... It feels like it's the end of the week already. I need more sleep! Here's hoping that tomorrow will be a much more productive day than today was!
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
