WordCount Blogathon Week 2 Recap

I’ve been in a fog this week, and not only was it hard to make myself blog, but I’ve hardly been online. I’m taking medication that I just started Monday, and it’s making me groggy. Normally, I could sleep a little later in the morning to feel rested, but the boys had VBS this week, so we had to be up early every day.
