This Monday actually is a happy Monday, if there ever were such a thing. This Monday I was actually looking forward to. This Monday is (not only the first Monday of November, but also is) my last.Monday.here. Friday is D-day. Parker will drive out here Friday afternoon, we will spend the afternoon and evening packing up the few things left to be packed, and Saturday we will pull the full U-Haul trailer right out of town and onward to Fargo!
So yes, there is such a thing as a happy Monday because today is one :)
My weekend consisted of packing, packing, and more packing. I wouldn't say it was super fun but it was highly productive. And every so often it's not horrible to have a few days to yourself to crank some tunes and get shit done so I really didn't mind. As I'm writing this ahead of time on Sunday evening, I'm giving myself a bit of a break here and finally letting myself sit down in front of my computer for the first time since I can't even remember when. It's been quiet on this little blog lately and I appreciate you understanding and still stopping by when I do decide to grace the blog. Because, let's face it, I've kind of been a bad blogger lately...
1 || This is the 16th post I have written in the past 30 days. For somebody who generally aims to get a new post up on the weekdays, 16 posts in 30 days is not very many.
2 || I have cooked many delicious meals and made a few scrumptious desserts that I did not even photograph. God dang it, that one just ticks me off.
3 || Believe it or not, I have been kind of proud about my fall fashion as of late and (surprise surprise) have not taken one photo of that either.
4 || I couldn't tell you what some of my favorite blogs most recent posts have been. This one is probably the hardest one for me because it makes me feel like I'm losing touch -- thank goodness for my Instagram newsfeed!
5 || So many drafts, so little time to actually finalize them into a real post.
6 || My iPhone photo album is laaaame.
7 || My apartment is probably 75% packed and I have not taken one picture of the process, nor have I blogged about moving or packing tips.
8 || My insta-action lately is embarrassing. Here's the thing though: when your husband is gone and your apartment is more-than-half-packed, there's not exactly a lot of things that are worthy to be posted to Instagram.
9 || I am waaaaaaayyyy behind on my e-mails.
10 || I've hardly even noticed. I mean, I have because I think about this little blog every single day, but with other things being so busy I've hardly even noticed how separate I've been from this space lately. And that makes me feel a little guilty.
This is the week. Friday is moving day. Is this real life?
