This week was kind of a rough one and it seems like I’m not alone in feeling that. The reality of everything just feels really heavy some days. The best approach for me is to take it one day at a time. I plan on really unplugging this weekend and (if we can get the baby to take a nap, lol) helping Craig paint the master bedroom. We are making so much progress it’s crazy how close we are to the end. Can’t wait to show you guys. Hope all of you have a good weekend, if you’re even keeping track of days of the week anymore.
