As I’m writing this, Facebook and Instagram are down. Thanks Mercury Retrograde! But guess what? It’s a perfect time to disconnect! Did you see my blog post about 10 ways to disconnect/unplug/detox from screens and technology? Maybe this is our chance to do that! Thanks Mercury Retrograde! 🙂 Anyway, how has your week been? The main things I did this week were go see Captain Marvel, visit a cat cafe, and go to DC for the day to explore looking for some murals and visit some museums. Other than that I’ve been struggling with depression a little bit over some person stuff, and trying to keep busy! I definitely have plenty to work on, that’s for sure!

I hope you’re feeling good. The equinox is just around the corner. I can’t wait for consistently warmer temperatures. We got to walk around the park the other day and say hi to a billion dogs, and it was so nice. On Sunday, there is this local Corgi meet-up group who is meeting up in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, and we’re going to be the creeps without dogs who go to hang out with them. I’m very excited. I need to get one of those leashes from the 90’s that makes it look like you are holding an invisible dog. Anyone have any leads on where I can get one of those? Send ’em my way!

Here’s what I’ve been into lately…
