I’m on my first vacation (stay-cation, actually) in a year. It’s much needed. I need sleep, too, but that’s not going to happen. A few weeks ago I adopted this cute thing. Her name is Olive.
Needless to say, puppies are like babies. Kittens are nearly self-reliant but puppies are a whole other ballgame. This morning was the first time I’ve slept past 5:30 in about 3 weeks. I can feel the normalcy slowly coming back…but not quite. I think I have at least a few more months before my sleep is back to normal. She’s worth it though.
I’m working on a writing project every day during my vacation so I’m going to be blogging less reliably. Check my Facebook page for updates, though. I typically post there often. Or you can join me on my personal Facebook page which is going to consist of Olive pictures and writing updates.
In the meantime, here’s some things to read/watch/do/hear:
