..I quit writing my blogs. It felt weird but I decided to take the summer off. Between my health, the kids, my eye problems, summer plans and trips it was too much to combine my limitations with all I wanted to do. I decided that I had this time to spend with my family, if something happened to me, I didn’t want my kids to have fond memories of the back of my head. There wasn’t any real regret not blogging, I felt it was more important to LIVE my life rather than sit behind my computer.
…I watched all of “Downton Abbey”. I loved it. All those accents made me miss Dick Van Dyke in “Mary Poppins”.
…I went to the ICU for 8 days. It started with blood from places blood isn’t supposed to be. Then my body decided to play “Follow The Leader” and lead the doctors on a merry chase through my internal organs. My spleen was infected, I had a UTI, then they found a kidney mass that turned out to be an abscess and not cancer, I had a lung infection and I didn’t have a shower for over a week. Dude. I was broken but recovering. Much better but still massively tired.
…I met the husband and first baby of my niece. I watched my mom become a great-grandma. *sigh*
…I didn’t take my son for his driver’s license because he didn’t really care. *looks around totally confused*
…I sent my 10yo on her first trip out of state with others. It overlapped our family vacation and we got her back mid-vacation. I feel so ashamed because I did what I said I’d never do: I got her a cellphone. She is a texting fool.
…I enjoyed most of my time. I loved being with the crew but was sad I couldn’t drive them around more.
…I heard this about eleventy million times!
