Random Weekly Roundup #53

I took it really easy last week when it came to blogging (re: I slacked). I was mentally exhausted and really needed to recharge. I think a lot of it has to do with being introverted. Sometimes I find even the thought of checking my Facebook notifications way more taxing than it actually is. I think every once in a while I just need complete solitude to recharge. I'm wondering if you extroverts ever feel like that, too? Or is it the exact opposite? Anyway, I had a light week socially and then went out of town for the weekend. I visited my family in Dayton and got to spend some relaxing quality time with them and it was exactly what I needed! And since I missed my regular roundup yesterday, I wanted to go ahead and share it today. Better late than never, right?
