outside the blogosphere

This was my first week back on my old schedule, and I can’t even tell you guys how much happier I was. My spouse even looked at me at one point early on in the week and said, “It’s like you’re back,” because they felt like the increased hours had changed me so much (and not for the better). Our whole family is just thriving right now. ?
I’m still slowly chipping away at comments and have reached the point where, if a comment is more than a couple of weeks old, I’ll probably just “like” it unless it requires a reply, so please don’t think I’m rude! ?? I just can’t wait to get caught up and NEVER LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN. At the time I’m writing this post, I have over 800 pending comments to approve and reply to.

    1. I’m loving all these Sunday posts, Destiny! I’m trying to keep commentary to a minimum since it sounds like you have a lot to catch up on lol, but wanted to send some quick praise and say I’m happy the new work schedule is helping your life balance! Hope all stays well! Happy reading, love!

    1. 800 pending comments??? Damn, girl! (The positive side: you’re clearly a total charmer because look how many people want to talk to you!)
