I am tired. I am excited, but mainly I am tired. A new chapter starts on Monday…. I doubt it will bring more blogging with it, but it might do ;-) What’s new with you?

Happily addicted to the internet — loved this from Sara. I feel the same, though I have turned off ALL notifications I possibly can. The only time my phone makes noise is when someone actually calls me. Text messages are silent and I don’t get any social media notifications — ever. #sanitykeeper
