So you would THINK that with something like Snapshot September it would be a “no duh” kind of month and a “will get back into blogging” kind of month. Turns out not so much… I’m going to be straight with you guys — I’m in a bit of a funk. No, let me rephrase that, I’ve delved into a pretty deep funk and am working on climbing out of it, so please be patient with not getting a whole bunch of pictures this month like ya did last year. I’m going to do my best to do what I can with the last couple weeks of the month, but being motivated to get on a write, let alone do too much else. Not gonna lie, some of it is wrapped up with a minor depression about being back in the States (Friday marked one month back), and then there’s all the stress that is typically tied with moving into a new place/getting set up/establishing a new routine/searching for a job/other things… As stated above, everything doesn’t need to be talked about, and I definitely agree in regards to blogging. Somethings just shouldn’t be online for the world to see. Or at least I’m not comfortable sharing those types of things. For family who reads this blog, please realize that we’re OK, nothing huge and life changing has happened, I’m just personally going through a readjustment period — I’m pretty sure that JP would be reacting similarly IF he wasn’t so busy at IU.
On the brighter side of things, the weather in Indiana is finally beginning to feel like Fall — we BOTH sported sweaters today and we had an awesome afternoon thunderstorm. Over the weekend one of my beautiful cousins on my mom’s side joined the “old marrieds club”, and tomorrow I will get to see some more of my cousins (from my dad’s side). Also, everything pumpkin is coming out — I made a pumpkin-bacon-beer soup for dinner (good, but needs some tweaks next time), the Chocolate Moose has pumpkin ice cream again, and I’ll be getting my annual Starbuck’s PSL at some point. It’s Fall, one of my favorite four seasons, and I have an awesome new project launching with my sisters soon. So, I just need to hold onto the good things and pray about everything worrying me now.
I’m going to go by this other thing I found on Pinterest and press on tomorrow, and hopefully a little of this blogger’s block and a bit of this funk will be lifted.
