So I’ve had some interesting experiences lately. Experiences that give me some insight into just how strange my life has become. Ha! For real though…..you know how life just kind of takes you down a path? And you don’t always realize the path you’re on until it suddenly hits you one day? Well, that’s exactly what’s been happening. And even though it could be so much worse, it’s definitely not pretty.

The first experience was just the other day, when I was getting dressed (in jeans) to go over to our friends’ house. And I realized that it was the first time I had gotten dressed in anything other than leggings in a full week. And let’s not even talk about showering, or doing my hair, or putting on makeup….because the reality is I rarely do any of them. Because, well, there’s rarely a reason to….!
