Adulting is Hard

So, I realized that I haven’t been active on this blog for a month.  And while I would love to say I took a months’ long vacation in Cabo or Fiji, instead, I was just taking some time off to “deal” with life.  Because, well, Adulting is freaking HARD!!

Weekend Wrap-up – Good Vibes

I don’t normally discuss my weekend’s activities.  Usually, it looks a bit like this:  laundry, cleaning, Netflix marathon, rest, repeat.  It’s rather boring, really.  Sometimes, I mix it up and go out to dinner with my neighbors while my daughter hangs back with her friends.
