Hey Guys! I haven’t published a post in
10 11 days now which for me is a while. Give or take, I try to post once a week and if I’m really feelin’ it, twice a week. So I guess it hasn’t been been that long, but longer than usual for me. After getting some time away, I felt like doing a non-beauty post and just say what’s up.
My hubs and I were blessed to have the whole week off for Easter break so that gave us a nice amount of time to chill with family and just all around. One thing I can tell you about myself-when I work, I’m pretty focused and want to make it count. But I’m also realllly good at doing nothing or rather just doing stuff I feel like doing. You need that sometimes (or a lot of times, let’s be honest!).
So during our break we went away to visit family for two nights, I’ve had some crazy tooth pain/sensitivity (I’m getting that worked out-tooth pain is nothing I want to mess with), got another cold after I just got rid of one, and my son has also gotten sick and still is which sucks- I hate hearing him cough. But I was also able to get things done too like organize, see people, play more guitar than I had in a while, and get our tub redone which had been a priority for a while. I can now take baths guys. I never really did the bath thing before so that was huge. Ohhh and some shoppingggg! Hello Lush Bath Bombs!
Doing all of that naturally led me to a take a break from blogging. Sometimes I just have to get off the blogging hamster wheel to realize what it actually means to me or what I want to get out of it. If I don’t want to blog, I don’t. It’s that simple. But the nice thing is, even if I take a break, I return. I never want to leave it completely. And why? Mainly because I enjoy the interaction, friends I’ve made through the process, the sharing and connecting with others and just getting stuff out there. I genuinely love that part of it. I also love reading other blogs and that was one of the reasons I started. But again, having the solid week+ to do other things and NOT blog really helped to see why I DO blog!
We’ve been back at work for about a week now and though last week was annoying as all heck, I feel like this week I’m back to my normal “work self”-more focused and less tired/cranky. Hopefully I stay that way all week lol.
I will leave you with a picture of me enjoying a Unicorn Frap in my car last week after a dentist appointment (seriously, right after the dentist I bolted to Starbucks). I’m probably one of two people who actually really liked it. It was mango smoothie-ish and sour patch-y! I would like that!
I am looking forward to getting back to my blogging “schedule” again! Stay posted, beauties!
Have you taken a break from blogging or anything you enjoy? If so what have you learned ? Or better yet…have you tried the Unicorn Frappucino?! Thoughts??
Love, Jen <3
