Crazy Life Update: Why I’ve been Absent

Hey everyone!  I wanted to give you all a quick update on where I’ve been, what’s going on and why my post schedule has been all over the place.
I normally go on wordpress and read/comment on many of your blogs daily, as well as working on my own content. I originally posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I’ve moved to more of a Wednesday Thursday Friday thing. I’m kind of experimenting with post days and hours. It’s no secret that the time of day you post can have a big impact on how many people you reach, but there is no perfect formula to know when you should post.

In addition to this, I’ve had many setbacks recently which have been sapping time, energy and motivation. In January I was in a car accident on my way to work. A man lane changed directly into me without a shoulder check and is now vehemently denying fault and has actually made up a false police statement claiming I was driving in the opposite direction and “made a left turn into him”. I can’t believe people, people are just horrible sometimes! The intersection in question does not allow for opposite direction left turns, so I am extremely frustrated at the lie.


To make matters worse, on Tuesday of this week I was on my way to a 430am shift and hit black ice on the highway. It started with a small skid, but there was nowhere to gain traction for at least a kilometer. Our roads are terrible. The highway was a sheet. I spun into a guard rail at 100km/hour and my car is now totalled. Just what I needed right? Insurance can’t do anything for me in this case because my car is a 2006 model, so now I need to buy a new vehicle. I don’t even know how to go about selling this! It still drives, but look at it. On the bright side I am not injured. My neck is a little sore but the doctor said it’s minor. I was very lucky in that respect.

The day before the highway accident we booked a three week trip to Peru through a tour group. I worked out our budget and decided we could afford it, and then the next day my car gets wrecked!! LIFE!

What has life thrown at YOU lately? Please bear with me while I am ironing out my blogging schedule and dealing with all this stress! Thanks for supporting Cleiabeauty and being a wonderful distraction from my headaches.

    1. I was really lucky both times that there wasn’t any other traffic around. I’m so mad at him too! He’s a senior and I think he’s worried about losing his license so he’ll make up anything that suits him. Thanks for your concern! ❤

    1. Awe, thank you so much, I appreciate it! It’s been a whirlwind. I feel like since 2017 started I’ve tried to keep up a positive attitude and I keep having all this bad luck! Hopefully things are looking up now haha

  1. That’s so crazy! Irresponsible drivers are one of my pet peeves. I hope karma prevails. I’m so happy you are okay after your highway accident, at least physically. I can imagine how emotional the situation would be, though, especially after the first accident!!


    1. haha I hope so too! I think I’ll hear back from insurance this week and see if they will even do anything for me now that I’ve gone and smashed up the car on my own. Even if they don’t pay for anything I just want to know that they’ve found the other driver at fault! It’s definitely been stressful, I took a couple vacation days for next week to just sort things out and not leave my house.
