Indeed, it is.
Sidenote: I absolutely know that just prior to 5:00 p.m. on a Friday is perhaps the absolute worst time to publish a blog post if you want people to notice and maybe even read it, but I’m throwing caution to the wind and just doing it. I’ve been trying to build back up to posting four to five times each week and I think the “posting” part is more important to me at the moment than the “having it read by actual people” part. (That said, big sloppy kisses to you if you’re reading this.)
I have to say that I have felt an internal change over the past week or so, and I think that part of it is due to the sabbatical I took last Wednesday afternoon and the other part is that my work is naturally starting to slow back down to a normal load as we creep away from the conference. I feel—dare I say it?—more relaxed in general. I mean, sure, I still have some stressed-out moments and wouldn’t expect that I would suddenly start living a life that felt easy-breezy all the time, but I feel calm. It’s nice.
The combination of working normal hours again (still at my kitchen desk, even!) and feeling more relaxed means that I’m doing things like:
READING BLOGS! LIKE, NOT EVEN JUST FOR WORK!
That’s right. I’m back to reading more than just a few blogs regularly for the first time in a year. As I suspected would be the case, I am absolutely in love with bloglovin’. I have subscribed to all of the blogs I used to read as well as some that I’ve had on my mental list for a while (including, finally, most of my LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER cohorts). Also, I’m trying to take the time to comment, too. Please don’t pass out from the shock if you see me comment on your blog, especially if I used to read but went MIA for a while. I’M BAAAAAACK!
READING! A BOOK!
I am actually on pace to finish the book that I started at the lake last Wednesday, by tomorrow afternoon. I know. I can’t believe it either. And guess what? I might start another one on Sunday. Crazy, right?
EATING A HUGE BOWL OF LUCKY CHARMS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE AFTERNOON JUST BECAUSE I CAN!
I think that’s pretty self-explanatory. Along with Apple Jacks, I consider Lucky Charms to be Happiness in a Bowl.
The possibilities are endless from here on out, don’t you think?
Have a great weekend!
