Days 246 to 259 ~ daily gratitude

Gosh…. It has been about two weeks since I last posted, time is flying by so quickly!! I can’t believe it’s already halfway through September!
I have been so busy doing homeschooling with my son (it is a lot of work) and working out/running that I have spent little to no time on my computer. It’s actually been turned off most of the last two weeks and I usually don’t even do that. While I would love to say that I won’t leave this long again, I can’t as it will likely not happen. Maybe if I shoot for some time shortly before bed then it might happen as I am not really all that physically active before conking out. I’ll have to see what will work out 😀
