Sorry I have been slacking on my blog posts lately. Turns out back to school time is still a crazy time of the year…even with a junior and senior. But, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Day one, I get a text the one of my dear sons forgot all of his paperwork at his dad’s and asked if I could pick it up and bring it to him…I did.
Day two, I got a text from my other dear son that he left his work shirt at dads and could I go find it. So…I did. It was dirty. So I washed it…at dads. And brought it to him. All was good.
Even on my worse day, I will drop everything and drag myself wherever I need to be for my sons. I love them with every ounce of my being.
Tonight is Back to School night at Jake’s new school. I am anxious to meet his teachers. After all, up until this year, my kids have been at the same school since kindergarten. I knew everyone there and they knew me. Change is hard. Not for Jake, he loves it, but for me.
I have been having a really tough week with my lungs. The coughing and throat clearing have kicked into ultra annoying high gear and is sometimes hard to breathe even. Luckily, I have a pulmonary appointment coming up. I don’t have a good feeling about the outcome of my pulmonary function tests. But, whatever it is, I’ll deal with it and keep trucking along. After all, what’s the alternative?
I am super excited for autumn. It’s my favorite season of the year. I love pumpkins and all things pumpkin. I love fall colors and falling leaves. I love big sweaters that cover my chubby belly and now my tubie paraphernalia. I will miss snack size candy bars left over from Halloween night. I might have to buy candy that I hate. I’m not sure they make any candy that I hate though. Hmm, may have to think about that one. The one downside to fall, is that winter is just around the corner.
I hate winter. Winter brings extra joint, muscle and bone pain, even more fatigue and the worst of all….digital ulcers. Extremely painful sores on the fingers caused by lack of circulation, a condition called Raynaud’s. My ulcers often lead to gangrene and a guaranteed “getaway” to the hospital for a week. Not the kind of vacation I want.
Enough of all of that…today is warm and clear. I will enjoy it while it lasts. I don’t want to rush the warmth away.
With all that said, I will only be blogging once a week now. Expect to hear my antics every Monday.
Please don’t give up on me though!!!
My life is just exceptionally crazy right now, which means crazier stories to share! See you on Monday!
Woohoo! My life is a blog!
