I can’t even begin to explain how crazy life has been lately. For the most part, I’ve thrown myself into work other that a much needed week long vacation (more about that soon!) and taking care of my dad for a week after he had major surgery just a couple of weeks ago. It also doesn’t help that as soon as I have a blog post idea in my head, I sit down to write it… nothing happens. Frustrating!
With summer quickly approaching (hello poolside reading!) and time off in chunks – I’m ready and excited to throw myself into reading on a more frequent schedule than I am now and blogging! I miss being able to write and to connect with everyone, so this summer I am pretty determined to get back into the swing of things and stay there.
So what have I been up to?
About a month ago, I got to spend an amazing week with my girlfriend. You guys. It was just perfect. So much laughter, a lot of smiles, big big big, life changing conversations. We laughed until we cried (and until it hurt), we had movie dates just about every night, a friend of mine did our photos and just… enjoyed the time together after too long apart.
One of my favorite parts was being able to go back to Monterey (cute story: we had our first date there last July) with friends and just explore and spend time together. The weather was absolutely perfect while we were and we got a real treat when we saw a pack of dolphins hunting in the bay for lunch/dinner.
We have a lot to look forward to – some big and exciting things – and I am working extra hours when I can to save up so that I can go see her in the fall. I miss her like crazy, but our facetime dates help. I am so excited for what our future has in store for us and our big plans!
I haven’t been reading as much as I would have liked – to be honest, I come home most nights after work and just flop down and I don’t want to do anything. My focus has been bad lately, but I am really excited to be on a blog tour/review a book next week!
I don’t really have plans for the weekend aside from working a bit tonight (AKA I’m curling up on the couch when kids are in bed and reading) and possibly some grocery shopping, but it’ll be a laid back weekend with lots of time spent with my girl.
I miss everyone and I hope you are all doing well. Let’s catch up – what have you been up to lately? Anything fun planned for the summer? What books are you looking forward to reading?
