MMMM + Is it really over?

Yes, vacation truly is over. I am ok with this, though I have a literal ton of work to accomplish. However, I will feel pretty happy about said accomplishments. The last few days of my time off were drizzly rain and icky warm muggy air. But it’s cool today and will get cooler throughout the work. I have a new fuzzy blanket to try out so bring it on, Mother Nature. Makes me wonder if we’ll have another super cold winter. Last year, it took a little while to get started but then got so cold, we actually had a snow day off school/work! This year, it got cooler earlier, then tapered off.

Our last few days consisted of: buying washi tape, cleaning my house, eating hibachi, napping, walking around stores to get out of the house, and watching movies. In essence, we truly did rest. Those two weeks off work are such a strange Twilight Zone type time; we don’t do things “normally” and though it is nice, I always yearn for the routine.

I’ve started “bullet journaling”, though I put it in quotes because I have not done the ACTUAL calendar/key within my book. This analog form of record-keeping/planning seems like such a good idea but I am afraid to abandon my phone’s calendar so quickly. Oh… that. My phone hath died. I had a Galaxy S4 and the power button is jacked. Sure, I could replace it. It costs about 6 dollars and I have already disassembled my phone to see where it would go but… I don’t know. I put my SIM card into Ash’s old Note 2 and if I can get a case for it, I think it’ll last until August when I am eligible for an upgrade. I really don’t think they make these things to last longer than a year but as you know, contracts are two! What a racket.


As per the theme, here is a song that is “new to me”. Though I was aware of its presence, I basically only stopped to listen to it over this break and well, here it is.

And I’ve given in to the Taylor Swift influence so here is:

Plus, that one has model Sean O’Pry in it.

  1. Geez, sorry to hear about your phone. Hopefully the temporarily switch will last ya till August. My only experience with smartphones is with the iPhone and I’m here to tell you my last one was a tank. It worked beautifully and I was able to sell it back to Verizon getting a nice return on that dinosaur. I mean, I used it every day for 3.5 years. We got the 5s in 2013 and will be eligible to upgrade this fall. We may do it, not because we have to, but because we want to. My current iPhone is amazing! *knock on wood* I love technology! Anyhow, I know what you mean about missing routines. I’m just now returning to blogging after spending most of Christmas week and all of last with DH. I’m ready to gear things up and get much accomplished. It’s great to share the dance floor with you and I’m looking forward to keeping this party going strong all year long!

  2. Ha! I chose All about that Bass too! I’m ready for the routine again too. The two weeks off was great, but we got so off schedule and getting back to the normal routine will be good for us.

  3. Yes it is over, well I don’t know for sure it’s over since I only read the title of the post and not the post so really don’t know if it is over or not………………

  4. It seemed like the vacation time was going to last a lot longer when it was looming ahead, but it flew by and *poof!* it’s over. What a bummer! ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ve been having the same drizzly/warmish weather lately after an arctic cold front – I’m really hoping this year we’ll actually see some snow here in the Pacific Northwest. Yes, I’m a dreamer, why do you ask? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love your song choices – I’ve had both those going through my head a lot – and picked the Taylor Swift one for today, too! ๐Ÿ™‚
