So here’s the thing. I don’t often have very much downtime. I’m usually on the go-go-go, whether it’s heading to work, or an event, off on another travel adventure – whatever the case may be. Very rarely do I get a chance to hang out with friends and just ~*chill*~.

But come the next day – I was just a ball of mush. LOL
I was exhausted and drained and struggling to put together sentences. I mentally checked out and went to bed at like, 7pm. After a MUCH needed night of rest – I remembered that I owed Casie a couple of bucks for our patio night. Oops!
