I’m happy to report that things are finally settling down and I’m getting into a routine. Huzzah! Considering how the last several weeks and months have gone, it’s nice to be establishing something different.

Of course this weekend I’m attending a wedding, then the beau visits, and then its Thanksgiving but shhhhhhh! I’m going to live in a happy place called routine land for a bit longer…
