I've been staring at a blank text box for most of today. I want to write something, but I don't know what. I don't have anything terribly interesting or intelligent to say. I don't typically do anything "cool" or "fun." And quite honestly, the highlight of my New Year's Eve weekend was the couple of minutes I spent with this pup (no offense to anyone, but puppy beats people every time).

As I'm writing this, I'm sitting on the couch next to my Mom, who's not been feeling well since yesterday. It hasn't exactly been the best start to a new year. I've refreshed YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat more times than I'd like to admit, all in an effort to avoid life. 

I've already talked about what I'd like to accomplish this year, but I'm willing to trade accomplishing any of those things if it means my Mom can finally start feeling better. It's been a long four and a half years for everyone, and her most of all. So I'd be more than happy to...

Sorry, I just took another "break." 

Spend your life living.

More than anything, I just want her to be better. Because she deserves it. And when she's better, I know everything else will be better.
