I highly doubt anyone noticed, but I skipped doing a "highlight of the week" post last week. (also, I kind of really hate when people apologize for not posting because..no one notices lol) Honestly, I just wasn't in the mood. I started this series to try to appreciate and remember little moments, but the truth is that my life is just so completely normal. I have some highlights for sure, but I don't think everyone needs to know that I ate 6 skinny cow ice cream sandwiches, or about the new candle I've been lighting before bed at night. Just a weeks worth of really little, really normal things that don't need to be expanded on. And I'm still trying to find the line I'm comfortable with on with sharing personal things or thoughts, so I mostly try to keep things light and funny, but I don't always feel that way. I'm still so new to Blogging and sometimes it can make me feel like I should only post the happy times or the exciting things that I think people want hear about. I set out to create a blog about real life and sometimes I forget that. Sometimes there isn't a big highlight, and that's perfectly normal.
Life isn't a circus. It won't always be entertaining. And I definitely won't always be happy. My week-to-week life, and even my weekend life is pretty routine. I don't always go out to fancy restaurants or buy new clothes, or do anything really considered to be special. This week I've ate every meal at home, the only shopping I did was for some fruit, watched too many episodes of Gilmore Girls, talked to my dog more than I talked to real humans, tried to minimize my closet (for the tenth time) and then got upset because I hate all my clothes, and on Thursday cried about nonsense most of the day (call me crazy)...nothing at all to brag about. But, there's been some good moments too. When we laughed and laughed at Ted the other night when John brought him home this deer antler thing, I made a pretty sweet kale salad, the weather has been great, and I finally won 1st place in Mario Kart. (which is a very big deal because I log a lot of hours playing Mario Kart and I finally beat the 5 year old I watch)
I decided that this little series may continue occasionally, but I'm not going to pressure myself to post something if I don't feel like it. Some weeks are better than others, and I don't need to remind myself that I'm a total loser if I didn't do something awesome during the week. Because that just isn't how life is. I mean, I do think my life IS awesome in it's own way, but you know what I mean ;)
