This Week in Review: 2 Olive Garden entrees for $12.99, 3 ModWrap Bracelets for $12.95, plus more (and why I’ve been a little quiet around here)

This Week in Review(I came home from vacation to this book waiting for me — cannot *wait* to read it!)

We’re finally back into the swing of things after a 12-day roadtrip with both of our extended families. I’ll share more pictures and details next week.

I know I’ve personally been kind of quiet on the blog here the past two weeks. I gave myself the month of August “off” just because I knew we were going to be gone for so much of the month. Thanks for your patience as I’ve not been posting goals, weekly check-ins, freezer cooking, grocery shopping trips, reading goals, or weekly menu plans.

Truthfully, while it was good to get away and I soaked up the sun, the water, and the quiet, my heart has been heavy. And that’s made it hard for me to be inspired to write here — especially as I try to keep things upbeat. And well, I’ve not felt all that upbeat.

It seems almost all of my dear friends are going through heart-breaking things — one friend is in midst of a divorce, one friend is really struggling with some hard burdens, one friend just got some devastating news, one friend’s husband is deployed and she’s carrying a lot of extra stress as a result, one friend is watching her dad lose his battle with cancer… it just hurts my heart.

I’ve been praying a lot. Hurting a lot for these dear people in my life. And just wishing I could take away all these hard things for all these people I love so much.

What do you do when you feel like your heart just hurts so much for other people? And you feel so powerless to help them? You do what you can do, but it just feels like such a drop in the bucket.

I also have gotten off-kilter when it comes to sleep… going to bed too late and then getting up too late. That’s okay for when you’re on vacation, but it definitely needs to be nipped in the bud right here and now. Because our fall school/work schedule starts Monday. Ready or not, it’s back to real-life.

I’m so glad that I committed to blog through the Rise & Shine Challenge. Because I need it pretty downright desperately.

And that’s enough from me… hopefully you’re having a better week. Here’s to a restful Sunday for all of us!
