what i did during summer break…

..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!

    Welcome back, you were on my mind this week. I missed you. I was concerned that your health was at issue, but wanted to wait until my kids were down for the night before hopping on the “looking for those I stalk online”. :)

    Glad you are working on the getting better. Yes Summer is fabulous for catching up with the kiddies. We are still 19days away from back to school.
