I temporarily gave up on the last book I was reading. I may pick it up again in the future, but I reallyColleen Hoover book. She’s amazing. I’ve seriously loved everything she’s written and I still have a few more to tackle. And by tackle, I basically mean devour. I could’ve been done with all of her books ages ago. I honestly don’t have a good reason why it’s taken me so long. I almost half wonder if I subconsciously wanted to hold off so I could enjoy her writing a little bit longer. She comes out with new books pretty regularly, but I didn’t want to be without something good to read.

Sometime in the last month or so our vacuum decided it was going to start breaking and doing dumb things. We’ve had it for a long time so it’s definitely served it’s purpose and I’ve gotten my moneys worth but I really truly hate researching new items. It’s not a fun purchase. It’s not like you’re researching a new couch or a new tv even. Something to clean with isn’t exciting and fun. It’s just a boring adult purchase. But I did it. I was torn between two and finally made a decision based on a few factors. Now, fingers crossed, it’s just as good as the previous models we’ve had and it really does the job it’s supposed to without annoying me too much!
