- READING SLUMP.
I'm in a reading slump because I attempted to read two books that just did not mesh well with me in which I had SUPER high expectations and ended up DNFing them both. IN A ROW. The resulting bummer led to a total lack of motivation to read. I haven't finished a book in all of July. SERIOUSLY. It's bad. It sucks. I hate it. But here we are and that is life and life is hard, you know?
- SUMMER IS MY BUSY TIME
You probably know I work with teens and children. In the summer, they are more flexible and I like to spend time with them so I'm doing more of that. Which means my routine is all wacky. Which means my blogging gets pushed to the bottom of my to-do list. Also we are repainting all the Sunday School Rooms (which are going to look so rad and I will definitely be sharing when they are finished) which is taking up EVEN MORE of my time!
- BOARD GAMES AND FRIENDS
We just hosted a Heavy Games Weekend at our house this weekend. Basically we had people come over and play those epic, long, brainy European-style board games that burn my brain and make my heart so happy! I went a bit cray on Instagram, so I'm sure you saw some of what I'm talking about.
- HAVING A CHILD SUCKS YOUR TIME AWAY
Okay, let the record show I am well aware that I have the world's easiest kid. She goes to bed by 7:30 and wakes up at 7:30 the next day. Truly, I'm blessed to have a scheduled and pretty easy going little miss. But still, when she's awake I want to spend time with her so that means ALL of the things get pushed back until after 7:30. And then when those things are done, I'm not in the mood to think anymore! Blurgh.
- TV IS THE BEST
Andrew and I are catching up with Korra (which I am sucking so hard at, Amy, and I'm so so sorry) and the latest season of 24 and other shows. It's our zen time at the end of the day and we both enjoy it and I don't want to give that up either. Plus the other day I was reminded how amazing the TV show Cops was so I watched that for like 2 hours while getting over a headache in bed and it was basically the best night I've had in weeks.
You guys, I suck at blogging lately.
Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.
