An Unintended Break

Long time no talk! Honestly, I had zero intention of taking a break, but sometimes life throws you a curveball. What can you do? Nothing major. Just lot of time-consuming items at work allll last week. By the time the weekend came, I was downright exhausted and couldn’t even think straight.

Unfortunately, this means that Steve and I even missed celebrating our 12-year dating anniversary and 4-month wedding anniversary last Thursday simply because I had so much to do. To kind of make-up for that, we ordered from Bonefish Grill last Friday as a bit of a celebration. We pretty much ate and fell right asleep. How old are we? Ha. Have you ever eaten at Bonefish Grill?! If not, 3 words for you—Bang Bang Shrimp. Google it. Can’t wait to make ‘em at home.

I did manage to make dinner twice last week, I think. Hooray! Both meals were out of this world, but I didn’t get to take pictures of either. It was dark out both times I made dinner…and I didn’t get home the following day until it was dark. No light = No pictures = No posts either. Huge, huge bummer. The upside? I’ll have to make both meals again sometime.

While I was super happy for a break from work, I was pretty much useless all weekend long. I immersed myself in a book and didn’t put it down. My brain needed that time to just relax and be. I haven’t read like that in probably well over a year. When I emerge from a stressful time, my brain just needs to shut down and recharge. My go-to is reading and it did the trick just fine. Whew!

My weekend has actually been 4-days long so far, and I haven’t minded a bit, quite frankly. Yesterday was a holiday, so I didn’t have to work. Then, it snowed all last night, so work was cancelled for today. After the week I had…this was a-okay by me. Who doesn’t love a snow day?!

Thank you so much for your patience while I slowly come back to life. I certainly hope to get back on track this week.
