Lisa’s Week In Review: 4/26/21 — 5/2/21


I’ve been exhausted this entire week. What is it about vacations that cause them to leave you more exhausted after you take them than before? Admittedly, some of it is just the fact that awards season is now over. For nearly six months, that was my obsession and the first thing that I checked on every day. Now, that’s over and it’s definitely left a bit of a void.

Oh well, no matter! The end of awards season means that it’s finally time to truly move on to 2021! Seriously, it’s about time.

  1. I feel the same type of void at the end of baseball season, although at least then I have the best months of the year (October and November) coming up to cushion the blow.

    Get some rest! 🙂
