Let's see--the kids and I started the new year at my grandparents' house 5 hours away from home. We tried to drive back in time for church that evening, but we were about 30 minutes late. I guess I should have known then how this month would go!
I had foot surgery on the 4th.
The kids started back to Mother's Day Out on the 6th.
It snowed on the 9th.
I went back to my podiatrist on the 10th.
We had our growth group here, and both of my grandparents went in the hospital on the 11th.
I had a church luncheon and took my son to the doctor for a sinus infection on the 12th--my first day to drive post-surgery.
My grandpa was put on a ventilator,my grandma was able to go home, and I had a dinner for church on the 13th.
The kids and I made the 5 hour drive back to visit my grandparents on the 14th.
The kids and I drove back home (only 15 minutes late to church this time) on the 15th.
We celebrated our son's 5th birthday with a house full of people on the 16th.
I went to church for our scrapbooking group, took my daughter to the doctor (diagnosed with RSV), and drove myself to my podiatrist on the 17th.
I kept my daughter home from school on the 18th.
I went to Bible study (am) and another event (pm) at church on the 19th.
I kept my daughter home from school on the 20th.
I have a baby shower on the 22nd.
My son has his 5 year well visit on the 24th.
The kids will hopefully both be in MDO on the 25th, so I can get something done around here!
We have a church function in the evening on the 26th.
My husband leaves for Ghana on a medical mission trip on the 27th (he'll be gone 10 nights).
I'm hosting a scrapbooking retreat on the 28th, 29th, and 30th.
I will go to our scrapbooking group at church and another appointment with my podiatrist on the 31st.
Believe me, not all of that was on the calendar when I scheduled my foot surgery. Why did everyone have to get sick this month? I keep thinking, at some point, life will slow down, but it never does. I just looked at my February calendar, and the first two weeks are already packed. I honestly don't know how people get the "winter blues" or whatever. I don't have time to reflect on the weather!
