I was planning on taking a break from the internet completely. Most of what I see just makes me sad and/or angry. I’ve been staying off Facebook, which is actually pretty nice. I know I can’t adopt all the animals and seeing them constantly breaks my heart. I’m also trying to feel less compelled to photograph all my great moments and just live in them and not worry about capturing it. It’s definitely a weird and different feeling, but I think I’m going to really like it eventually. It’s nice not constantly looking at my phone.
That being said, I do want to keep up with blogging. Unfortunately, that means sharing my blog to my social media. So I will be on, just less frequently.
What have I been up to since my last post? Well, I crashed out of my manic state and slept for like 24 hours. My body was very disappointed in me. I’m starting to feel a little better but I’m still exhausted.
I started doing embroidery. Best manic purchase ever. I’m almost done with it. I just have to learn the satin stitch to finish her up. I got this kit from OddAnaStitch on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/shop/OddAnaStitch
Ben and I are still looking for a house and it’s extremely frustrating. The worst part is that our current apartment smells like an ashtray. Ben and I don’t smoke but most of our neighbors do. I can’t be around smoke, I’m extremely sensitive and have to use my inhaler when I’m near it. Not being able to walk into your own home without having an asthma attack makes one enraged. Luckily, my new hobby involves stabbing something over and over again so that’s helpful. Stab fabric, not neighbors. My new motto.
Other than that I think things are pretty “normal” for me currently and I hope they stay that way for a while. I need a break from the craziness that is my mind. I’m still walking dogs, petting cats, going to therapy once a week, binging cartoons on Hulu. God is good, life is hectic, we are making it and so can you.
