Yep, it's been a while since I have sat down and let everyone know what's going on with me. 8 weeks?? Did it really go by that quickly?? Can't believe that Halloween is Monday, and then we will start planning for Thanksgiving! My how time flies when you have a sick hubby and then that sick hubby gets better and goes out of town for a whole week. I have been so crazy!!!
First of all, in my last blog I told you all that my oldest daughter was going on her first school campout for 3 days. We had a blast! We took a 3.5 mile hike (most of it uphill), which was outstanding to get to the top and look over at the beautiful city of Manhattan, Ks. It was extraordinary! Plus, just getting the exercise was bonus enough for me! :)
My husband and I celebrated 12 years of marriage the day after I got back. I colored my hair (only because I wanted him to know that I actually was younger than him, and he wasn't taking out his granny! lol Had a beautiful evening of dinner and mini golf (without the kiddos) and just had fun reconnecting. He had been working so much overtime, that I had barely seen him the month of September!
I then celebrated my 38th birthday 2 weeks later, all the while taking care of a husband that had gotten Strep Throat, only to almost have to be hospitalized, because we couldn't get the fevers to go down, or away. Not fun for either of us. Luckily, my kids didn't get it. He was out of work for 5.5 days. Ugh! I got a minor sinus infection, which I will take over Strep anyday! :) He then went back to work the following week of my birthday, but was not completely 100%, till Thursday of that week, so a total of 11 days being sick!
2 weeks after my birthday, he left for Tennessee! Lauren, Abigail, and Kyle...oh my!!!! lol I had to work from home, which I dispise, but was lucky to be able to do so. My kids did well for me, so that helped. They liked that I was home with them, when they woke for school. :) So was I.
In the meantime, things are finally starting to get back to semi-normal. :) I am getting back into my routine, starting next Monday (I like to have a fresh start at the beginning of a week). I have not "gained" any weight, but I'm totally not feeling very toned, or fit! So, I will do what I need to do, to get back on it! I have missed all of my friends on here, but don't give up on me, please! I need you all!
Hope all has been well with everyone! I love my SparkBuddies, and wouldn't have made it this far without you! Thank you, everyone. Thanks for reading my "catch up" blog.
Take care! :)
