As moving day closes in, I find myself exhausted as the sun goes down and in need of mindless entertainment.
In fact, my whole house seems to be in this mode. I’m not sure if it’s the chaos of boxes combined with fatigue and that whole “we only have a few nights left in this house” panic, but we all seem to be retreating into our own choice of media at night.
It’s been fun, in a good way. And while I’ve been tempted to get stuck in social media, I have allowed myself to venture out into reading great content, listening to laugh-out-loud podcasts, and just having a little fun.
I have been following these ladies on social media for some time. Shamefully, I have not read any of their books yet. Although I want it noted that their titles are on my Amazon Wish List.
I’ve told myself I can’t order any new books until I read the stack I have. This is where earning Swagbacks comes in handy, so I can use my gift cards instead of my bank account. Feels like they are a “gift” instead of buying them. (See how I justified breaking my own self-imposed rule right there?) Where there is a will…there is a way!
Anyhow. Back to the podcast. They are funny. And I love them. I have spent more time laughing this week as I have listened to them.
I wish I could tell you why, but the reality is they just converse about their everyday lives, favorite shopping, and whatever. It is delightful.
Not only is it that they are so down-to-earth and hilarious, but I love the way they talk.
Texas and Alabama. Southern-ease, if you will, at it’s finest.
Every time Sophie talks, I feel like I am listening to Darla, my BFF since middle school.
Since we are from the NW Florida area in the panhandle, many people tease that region is not really Florida but rather lower Alabama.
But make no mistake we are Floridians who just happen to have our own special accent. (And my accent is totally confused since I was officially born a Cheesehead that became a Florida girl in grade-school.)
And Sophie (Boo Mama) is from Alabama so I suppose when I hear her talk, it just feels like home.
Which is why I am now spending way too much time with earbuds in at night, listening to their chatter, and laughing hysterically,
Anyway, all I am trying to say is distractions can be good things.
Laughter is suppose to be the best medicine.
And if you need something to recover from the ending of “Lost”, might I suggest listening to a little podcast for fun?
