Exhaustion + fall favorites Amazon fashion

exhaustion + fall favorites with Amazon FAshion #ootd #fashion #amazonfindsI am tired. Exhausted, pooped, done. Mentally and physically tired. Everything hurts and I want to die(not really). I have not been sleeping well due to my sons both having issues of their own. One was very sick and teething the other his normal stuff. And me and my husband are functioning on a thread of sleep. A sliver of it actually. I have so much I want to do and can’t because I am passing out tired left right and center. With my marriage that takes it toll too as when the kids are in bed and we get time to ourselves, we pass out dead on the couch or in bed. Nothing says fun like passing out and snoring. We always joke the next morning realizing we did nothing say “was it good for you?” usually followed by some laughing and then the sigh of maybe tonight?

Yeah this all may be a bit TMI. But, this is stuff that a lot of parents go through.  Especially parents with kids with special needs, I have met a lot of men and women(mostly women) in waiting rooms at hospitals, doctor offices, therapy offices who all say the same things. That a lot of the closeness is gone,they are exhausted and many can not afford the luxury of date night. And many can not go away for a weekend without the kids. Many families, like mine, do not have the family support system. AT..ALL. So we have to create our own. Which means, Nannies. Which means money. Which for a lot of families who have kids like my baby man, is a hard thing to do. Cost and finding someone who is QUALIFIED, is a hard thing. Budgeting an expense of a sitter or nannie with credentials for someeone that is licensed for special needs comes with extra $$$$$$ can be really hard to do with a super stretched out thin budget. And when I was told that my insurance may cover a caretaker to come and help me out a few times a week(will be more helpful in summer.) so I can get stuff done around the house, many companies that say they offer help with working with insurance for caretakers and nannies say that is only for the elderly.

Back to square one.I feel Nannies for kids with special needs should be a covered expense through insurance. JUST SAYING. I am currently trying to find a nanny that can help out a few times a week and also watch the kids for my hubby and I to have a much needed date night or day date. And a nanny who is trained for taking care of special needs kids.

Again when creating your own support system it all comes with a price. Cha–ching. $$$$$$

This is the part in the blog where we move on to the outfit of the day. I am wearing 2 of the hottest(this is no pun in Florida) things in Fall fashion right now and well will be in winter too. Leopard print and a thermal style sweater. This one I found on Amazon, if afffordable and comes in several colors. I love how soft it is, it is a cotton blend and feels nice on the skin! This particular sweater can be worn off shoulder or one shoulder or with both shoulders covered. It is versatile and sells out all the time because of it’s affordability and function! The leggings are a nice touch of adding leopard print with out being over the top! I love it! And because we are in Florida fall, California and other states as hot as Florida will understand the pairing of sandals with an other wise fall trend outfit. Right?

The bag is sold out on RiverIsland, I bought it over the summer and loved it. Even though it doesn’t carry much this is as far as I can go with the micro bag trend. This is a bit of homage to Dior’s saddle bag. That bag became super popular with fashion it Insta girls. That is unless you can not afford it then like the rest of us with that problem are left with a feeling of meh, the bag is meh.

Even if it is Dior.
