Have I ever not blogged in this long? Well, it's not been for lack of anything to say. I've been a busy little bee for a week straight. The sad part is, both my swinging and blogging have fallen by the wayside. Two things I really love and need! I can't complain too much, I have been busy with mostly fun, good, social things. My dance card is full! I have been fortunate enough to have bonded with a lot of new moms at Henry's school, and have been enjoying having girlfriends to do stuff with for the first time in... well, a long time. I also had a cookie order for Sunday, so I was consumed with that for several days. I have been seriously burning the candle at both ends, so Mom took all three kids last night so Bryan and I could sleep. It was a really lovely evening. We picked up the house and vacuumed (it amazes me how quickly this gets done when we're alone!) did some laundry, then I lounged and watched Desperate Housewives (it was a really meh season premiere, don't you think?) ate some ice cream, took a xanex, and went to bed. I got a full 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep! I feel truly like a different person today, more focused than I have in a long time!
The only downer is that Tyler is sick again. He was sick a week ago with vomiting and a fever, and here is with the same symptoms. I have to take Addie for her cardiologist appointment (check up on her Atrial Septal Defect - she also had a hole in her heart at birth which closed at a year.) at one, then after that I think I'll be taking Tyler in to get checked. I'm a little concerned. I tend to assume my kids either have leukemia or meningitis when they get sick. I know, totally irrational, but after you watch a childhood friend die when you're 4 years old, it kind of messes you up in that department. Assume the worst, hope for the best,
There's a lot more, but I really don't have time for a long post. But that's the Reader's Digest version.
