Was September a super busy month, or what? I’m kind of glad it’s over so I take a moment and just breathe. School’s back in session (hallelujah!!). The baby is now ONE year old (say what?). And the holidays are upon us. Are you ready for the holidays? I’m not; never am. But I do love Thanksgiving. Turkey!!
BBAW 2012 came and went but it didn’t feel the same this time around. I noticed a lot of the blogs I follow didn’t participate this year.
Bloggiesta just ended. I had a loooooooong to-do list but managed to make a good size dent in it, so I’m happy. And even though Bloggiesta is over, I will continue to tackle my list.
I have discovered Google Chat. Feel bad for J9. She probably wishes she could hide from me now. The only thing that bugs me is that I can’t get the desktop version and the iOS app to sync. Is that possible? Or is that impossible because Google and Apple can’t play nice together?
