It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Unplugged Summer? Not so much




I had plans to be mostly unplugged this summer, so, how did I do?

Not too good. The library Book read-a-thon started just two days after going off-line! Of course I had to post (and read!) for that.

Then July arrives and I'm in the hospital. All my plans for vacation, redecorating and getting healthy go out the window as I work to walk up the stairs without needing a rest stop!

So, if I don't have the energy to do much more than sleep and sit....I'm back on-line. sigh. I still managed to hold my July & August posts to a minimum.

My reading went through the roof! So did my book purchases, my next Mailbox Monday post is going to be a long one!

Unplugged doesn't mean just not posting but also staying off-line. It just didn't happen. I wanted to spend a lot of time in the gym and redecorating a room so I could organize my books and sewing. After my trip to the hospital (massive pulmonary embolism) I just didn't have the energy necessary and spent too much time reading, on facebook/FarmVille, and scheduling some September posts.

Results

Decorating - space cleared so I can prep for paint but that's as far as I've gotten.

Vacation - no, between being in the middle of nowhere, the altitude and how long it would take us to get there, we just couldn't chance it.

Gym/running - haven't set foot in the gym but I can, once again, walk a mile. I'm currently walking my mile at "training pace", it's just that I was hoping for 3 miles a day, 5 times a week by the summer was over. 

How was your summer?
