I can’t say that I meant to take a month plus long break from writing, but always find it difficult to get back into it if I hit pause. I let myself get into just a little bit of a funk where motivation of any kind was hard to muster, but thankfully plenty of good stuff was still happening with the exception of a stomach bug that knocked me straight down for a few days and battled a little bit with Jacob too.
My favorites include some long weekends that had time for going to a baseball game and a trip to the zoo, Mother’s Day and our 6 year anniversary falling on the same day (with my mother-in-law’s birthday the next day!), Jacob turning two and a half and these stages just getting more and more fun, and starting and finishing Love Warrior at a pace that was record setting for me lately.
On the accomplishments end I finished Gilmore Girls and personally I didn’t love the Year in the Life revival nearly as much as I loved the original series (side note, is it sad that I consider this an accomplishment?!), and I also read The Wear She Wears It and it inspired me to completely reorganize my closet. Now I’m back to an approach that’s a little more seasonal rather than most everything being crammed in at once in hopes that it forces me to shift my style a little bit as the seasons change. We’ll see how I like it, but the process did result in another two bags full of clothes to be donated so that’s at least a win!
