Hello everyone! It’s a semi-cold and rainy day here in the Midwest, and I wish I was curled up with a book and some tea. Sadly, it’s a work day, so I’ll be chained to my desk instead. But before I start another long work day, I’m going to take some time to lay down my goals for the next two months.
It’s been another rough couple of days. My extremely painful and gross medical condition is improving, but I had to go back and get it messed with yesterday and it HURT. That was some of the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life.
Hello everyone! I just wanted to take some time today to tell you how we got here. Where is here? Here is this blog. A lot of things had to happen to bring me to create this blog, stringing together words every week for your hungry eyes. So let’s start from the beginning.
I’m going to make a confession. I am having a really long week and, although I have some blog ideas in the wings, I just can’t commit to sitting down this morning and writing one of them. I do want to get up a blog as I usually do on Friday, so I thought maybe a life update was in order.
I have been going back and forth about whether or not to write this blog. Then, once I decided I would write it, I chickened out about posting it a little bit. Not because I care if I piss people off, but because I don’t want to seem… pretentious? Full of it? I don’t know.
I saw that someone did this tag and I thought “Hey, I want to do that.” So I’m doing it, regardless of whether I’m tagged or not.
eBooks got pretty big a few years ago, and now everyone is cashing in their 2 cents about whether the physical or digital book is better. Some swear by the ease and speed of eBooks, while some can’t lose the spark of nostalgia and joy they get from holding a story in their hand. Clearly you haven’t read enough blogs just like this one, so here’s my take on the whole thing.
I know, I did not include Triscuit in my “Meet My Kitties Week.” Put your pitchforks down and let me explain…
Let’s take a break from our regularly scheduled book reviews to chat about some life changes I’ve had in the past year. Really, just one lifestyle change.
In December of last year, I decided to try going vegan for the month of January. I found out a week or so later that this is actually a thing called Veganuary. You know how you think of something brilliant then find out it’s been a thing forever? Kind of takes the wind out of your sails, but this program meant I had some sort of support and, more importantly, a sweet name to use when I explained to people what I was doing.
I bet you thought you’d never see me again. I wasn’t even sure if you’d ever see me again, but here I am. I don’t know how to explain my absence. It was really just laziness I guess, and there’s really no excuse for it.
