Normal

Tonight I sat down to read blogs for the first time in a long time.

And I was relieved to find that I wasn't the only person who hasn't been blogging  much this summer, it seems like there are a lot of blogs taking a hiatus for the summer.

That, or blogs are dying. Either, or.

I have to admit it feels nice to sit down, kick my feet up, plop my laptop on my lap and do absolutely NOTHING.

While it's nice to be busy it's REALLY nice to also sit down and fill my mind with quality entertainment such as the Real Housewives.

Why oh why can't these people JUST GET ALONG?

Or at least stay away from each other.

Because then there wouldn't be quality TV. That's why.

We've had a pretty busy summer, from getting ready to move, going to NYC, moving to our temporary cabin, moving to our rental home, going to Colorado and then me going to Indianapolis; it's been a whirlwind!

I'm the kind of person who thrives on normalcy and routine. Think of an adventurous person and I am the complete opposite of that person.

Carrying a child in my body and bringing home a person from the hospital that I knew nothing about has been the most adventurous thing I've ever done. And it nearly broke me.

Well, saying it nearly broke me is a little dramatic, but it was hard. It just messed up all my "normal" that I had going.

So now, while it doesn't seem like a big deal, moving a couple of times and living in a temporary rent house that I don't feel comfortable in, doesn't seem to be a big deal, it's a big deal to me.

And that was one major run-on sentence but I don't feel like fixing it.

I'm just ready to be settled again. Even if it means being settled in a rent house for a temporary amount of time. I need normal again.

I actually haven't even cooked in this house once, but I figure that's the first step to feeling settled and "normal" again is to go grocery shopping and cook dinner here.

So I plan to do that sometime this week.

Monumental news over here. But this is part of my normal is coming on here and sharing useless information that is pouring out of my brain.

Bring on the normal!

I feel like every summer there is a blogging lull. People are going on vacations, spending all day at the pool and just being able to enjoy some outside time before the dog days of winter are among us. I know I have nothing to really report on most days and I just took a week off from blogging totally expecting to come back with TONS of content and I've got nothing!

Yep... seems like everyone is on vacation or enjoying the summer with their kids. Since I get no vacation during the summer & have no kids, I sometimes feel like the only blogger around... begging someone to blog about SOMETHING :)
