I didn’t realize I’d been gone that long. Sorry! Life in August has been busy and hectic and wonderful and shitty. Time has flown by! I’m sorry for not updating the blog, though reading has been sporadic, but I promise to do better soon.
This past month has really been trying. I finished my triathlon and didn’t die. Yay! Though someone did actually die at the race (heart attack on the swim, poor guy) so saying I survived is actually an accomplishment. I placed fourth in my division so there’s something good. My brother did it with me, wonderful man there!
I also found the house of my dreams and submitted an offer. However the sellers rejected it. My realtor thinks they got a much higher (and absurd) offer but it really broke my heart. I’ve been looking for other houses for almost a month and seen nothing like that one. Everyone tells me I’ll find the house of my dreams again but I’m not so sure. Hopefully. It’s an exhausting process and this looking has gone on for 3 months. In 3 months I’ve found 1 house I loved. I really REALLY hope it doesn’t take me another 3 months.
There have been some negative things on the family front, what’s life without a dysfunctional family somewhere in the mix, and I’ve been stressed at how it’s being handled. It’s hard not to jump in and tell people how to handle it (I’m always right of course) and I’ve obsessed about it way too much.
On the reading front I’ve been reading a little, mostly non-m/m which I’ll update soon. I found a series that I am devouring. I mean I’ve listened/read 4 books in the series in about 2 weeks. Part of me wants to save them for running but they’re so good! I’m addicted and can’t quit. I’m going to be REALLY sorry soon when I hit the end of the 7th book, all that’s currently out.
I promise to be back with reviews this week!
