Well hello there, loooooonnnnng time no talk.
So why the long absence? Just the same old schtuff that I've been complaining about for about a year now. Still can't find a job, feel like that's holding me back and not letting me reach my full life potential...blah, blah, blah. Throw in a semi-resistant to potty training toddler, and you have one Mama that didn't feel like taking the time to blog.
So what brought me back? I honestly thought that I was out of the blogging game for good, until I discovered the world of BookTube. For those not in the know (like me about a month ago), BookTube is the universe's answer to a global sort of book club. It's a bunch of bibliophiles who decided to share their love of books on the interwebs. And for some reason, stumbling upon these YouTube posts rekindled my love of reading, (which was always there but hidden under a thick layer of depression and exhaustion) which has in turn sort of buoyed me a bit. And in turn, I've decided to start blogging again.
The blog is still going to be about the fam, with a dash of book love mixed in. Cause I don't think I have the cajones to start a BookTube (BT) channel, but I really love talking about books. So I think I'm back and probably about once a week I'm going to pop in with what I'm reading, sharing some BT love and the like.
And if you're curious to see how rekindled my love of reading has gotten check out my Goodreads. In January I set a goal of reading 30 books and as of today I have read 23...12 of those were just since May...
Gracias Mucho, BookTube!!
And don't worry Maggie's doing great....
We're heading out to the beach this weekend, so I hope this finds you well and that you have a great weekend!!
