Things are getting chillier and chillier as the weeks go on!
Here’s what happened this past week:
I joined the social media world again! Hiiiiiii friends!! It had been a while and I feel like my instagram habits were broken. Comparison tends to be a big negative spot in my life when I’m not in a good headspace. But pulling myself out of the platform that is the biggest culprit really made a world of difference. The first few days I felt lonely because I do use instagram to talk to my friends, but after I got over it and just texted them (ha!), I found more productive things to take up my time like cleaning, playing with my kids, reading or going outside.

Anyways, one evening we thought all the children were asleep, so we turned off the hall light. The minute that light got turned off, Eddie yelled out “ON! ON! LIGHT ON!” Gordon turned it on again to which Eddie called out “THANK YOU!” …
