Reflections 2018 A to Z Challenge



I can barely type, my knuckles are stiff from packing boxes. An unexpected opportunity to move to Arizona came upon us and we seized it. The past several weeks contained a flurry of semi-controlled chaos. Traveling back and forth between Utah and Arizona. Selling a condo, buying a house. Purging junk and packing stuff.

Luckily, I had my blog posts ready and scheduled... that's the only way I was able to complete the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge. However, I had very little time to visit other blogs and leave comments, and I really missed that!

This was my fourth consecutive year of participating in the A to Z Challenge, and I plan to jump in again next year. I have April 2019 blocked off... but so was April 2018 and look what happened. Life!

The physical move happens this week, followed by unpacking. At least I won't be under a time crunch, meaning, maybe I'll be unpacked by next year's challenge!
