I’m really sorry I’ve kind of left everyone in the dark this past week. This summer has really been a test on my time management skills and obviously…I’m failing. I suck at getting posts out and things just haven’t been the best for me.
On the plus side, my medical issues seem to have been solved thanks to the surgery.
I am still recovering, the incisions healing super slow. My body reacted to the glue they used to close up the areas and it’s been a little bit of a battle with the itching and burning I’ve been experiencing. On the not so problematic side of things though, all the problems I did struggle with have been almost completely eliminated. They ran tests on the gallbladder after it was removed and I was officially diagnosed with chronic inflammation of the gallbladder, which seemed to be leading to the problems.
Things are getting more real at home for us. As of August first we will have full custody of my step children and so I’ve been in the process of getting all their doctor appointments set up, things all switched over from one town to OC including school. It’s been a headache to say the least.
Plus we’ve got birthdays. Kaylinn and Josh in July, Syerah in August and Ollie (and Mocha-my puppy) in September and it’s just a never ending cycle it seems like.
I am so blessed though that I’ve been given these guys to keep me in line. I hate that I have no time to blog like I want to, which is partially because lately I’ve just had no motivation, but also, the kids need me.
I saw a quote the other day that is so real. Life with kids. The days are so long, but the years are so short. It hits so hard because that’s exactly how I feel. I mean seriously, I have a 14 year old who will be a freshman this year, two little girls who aren’t so little anymore, turning 11 and my baby boy is going to be 6!!! Yet when I’m home with them all day during the summer, the day just seems to drag on. I say that with love. Lol. But summers aren’t the same these days as they were when I was a kid.
I can’t just shoo them outside and tell them to come home when the street lights come on. There’s so many creepy people out there anymore. So many dangerous things that could happen to them even though we do live in a small town. It’s just unsettling.
Anyway, I’m just babbling at this point, that’s what 1230AM will do to me! In the process of getting the ad matches done for this week. Thanks for putting up with the inconsistency. Sorry again for being so scatterbrained and just disorganized and unmotivated lately.
As always, thanks for the constant support. Your love and thoughts and prayers do not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
Have a marvelous week!!
