Monday Motivation

by - May 30, 2022

Happy last Monday of May, y'all. Man, this month has been a whirlwind, especially last week.

We officially sold our house and moved into a new home. We ended up doing the entirety of our packing within four days and fought the weather getting everything moved in. It literally rained every day last week, so we had a very narrow opportunity to get all of our furniture moved in. As a result, everything was kind of stacked and piled wherever it would fit. We've gotten Alexis's room mostly set up, our bedroom is functional, my office is put together, and the main living area (kitchen/living room/dining room) is usable, but we've still got a lot left to do.

I've been hindered a bit by a freak injury that happened while we were packing everything up. I don't honestly know how to explain it other than to say I fell off the ramp of one of the trailers we were loading. It's a bit more complicated than just falling, and my leg looks like it went a few rounds with Mike Tyson, but I'm just thankful it wasn't worse and we didn't end up in the ER.

In other news, I spent a majority of last week without internet, other than my phone, which refused to cooperate as a hotspot so work was incredibly frustrating. As a result, I wasn't able to get the June website prepared ahead of time and will be rushing to get it all done in time for the start of the new month. The printed issue should come in sometime this week so I'll be figuring out a distribution schedule. This issue was a really tough one this year, as was the May issue, but I've got my fingers crossed that things will be back on track for July. It's usually our most popular issue of the year all the way around, but with the economy the way it is right now, I just don't know.

Alexis is officially out of school for the summer. If all goes to plan today, we'll spend a portion of it on a boat soaking up some sun and splashing in the water. Well, she'll get to splash. I'll be keeping my injured leg out of the water to prevent my still-healing cuts from getting infected. But after a week of craziness, I think we deserve a little fun.

The rest of this week will be spent working and continuing to put the new house together. I've also got some appointments for later in the week that look promising, but I'm not ready to reveal to the world what those are about just yet. I hope once things settle back down into a better routine, I'll be back to regularly-scheduled blog posts instead of just one or two a week. I'll definitely have a book roundup post this week, but I'm not sure beyond that.

Anyway, today, I hope you all take a moment to remember those who have sacrificed and given their all for our country. They are the reason you're getting this extended weekend after all.

Have a wonderful week!
