note: typepad experienced outtages over the last few days. those of us with mapped domains were hit pretty hard. it's likely you're reading this post days later than it should have been published. so very sorry.
I'm recovering from an unplanned (but much needed) break.
Not just a blog break. A break break.
I've been feeling funky and crunchy for a few weeks now. I'm tired beyond belief and I just can't seem to get going. I had a period like this early last year while were still in Texas; I fought it with everything I had.
This time? I didn't fight. I just couldn't.
I decided to just ride it out. I focused on the crucial stuff (sleeping, eating, watching TV, caring for the kids) and let everything else go.
I'll catch you up a little:
+ After we returned home from the lake, Lauryn and I ventured into Seattle for a show (although I think she was way more excited about staying in a "fancy" hotel overnight):
+ Our oldest daughter turned 20 (yes, TWENTY)
+ I've been trying to get as much rest as possible
+ Last Friday, I was the guest poster for Rukristin's Currently Journaling Challenge. Go check it out!
+ I have an idea for a how-to blog series spinning around in my brain
+ I've been carving out a little time to work through the prompts of MyDetails (class started last Monday). It's been nice to have creative respite. I'll be sure to share more as soon as I take photos of the rest of the prompts.
I hope everyone is well!
