I know it’s been quite some time since I posted but there is a really good reason why.
I HAVE BEEN LIVING MY LIFE!
I’ve managed to get the farmer’s market on Saturday with my family.
I often cook at least the family meal at dinner (and often more).
I work in my little garden and try to keep it watered and maintained.
I haven’t managed to keep my ENTIRE house clean all at once but I often clean the downstairs level before I go to bed. (And breathe in the loveliness of it before the hurricanes known as my children can wake up and mess it up the next day.) (THAT said, I LOVE cleaning with Aaron. He is such a cute and hard little worker. His favorite jobs are cleaning off all the chairs and vacuuming. I swear that kid could vacuum all day if we let him.) (Which is really tempting since the vacuum is so much taller than he is.)
I bought an authentic COACH bag for under $100 (I KNOW, RIGHT?! I LOVE INTERNET BOUTIQUE SALES!) and it is so pretty it takes my breath away. It looks dark red but it is a super dark aubergine. I LOVE IT.
I take Butterlump and the kids to the park with my adorable little Maltese, Lady, so that they can play and Lady can get her energy needs met and I can get my exercise needs in.
I’ve taken my wee one (Again, with my parents as I can’t drive with the pain killers I’m on) to feed bread to the ducks.
I have done the whole bath routine with Aaron: Bath, teeth, story, prayers, and bed.
I have Lady in a Puppy Training Course at Pet Smart and we work HARD at it. I love that dog so much. I don’t know what I would do without her. She is the best little dog. If you are looking for a toy purebread dog I HIGHLY recommend the Maltese. Unless they will be alone a lot. They are FIERCELY loyal and in love with their owner and do not like being away from them a lot. And Maltese breeds rarely bark. She doesn’t unless someone approaches my room and she can’t see them. She could probably only rip of their ankles but that little blinking cotton ball would defend me to the death.
I’ve gone on two dates with my husband and have loved every minute of it. In anticipation of my return to church (This Sunday folks, fingers crossed) I have had to make HUGE changes to the dress section of my wardrobe. (That mainly means buy some.) AND MY HUSBAND NOT ONLY WENT WITH ME TO SHOP BUT HE ACTUALLY PICKED OUT THINGS WITH ME. (He bought some stunning enamel earrings that he said exactly match my eyes. I love that man.)
And lastly…I think that I have probably been watching “Real Housewives of New Jersey” too much because I made a totally blinged out and sparkly phone cover for my phone. (Problem? I LOST MY PHONE. Which is such a huge problem. Bloggers just can’t be without their phones for too long. I think that the implode or something.) (I also may or may have not blinged out our tortoise, Fluffy. I plead the fifth.) (It gets really boring in bed sometimes.)
I know this is the most random list ever, but it points to one thing-
I am starting to get better!
I am starting to get my life back!
There are still MANY days I spend in bed and I am often so tired that I honestly can’t write. Lame, I know. BUT I AM GETTING STRONGER EVERY DAY!
And besides having my children, getting my health back is by far the best thing that has EVER happened to me. And there are more good things are coming!
