As you can see, I haven't posted in exactly 54 days. I don't even know where to begin, I just know that I need to feel back on track.
Let's see, what has happened in the last 54 days?
1 - Big B had a new engine put in his car. Now, keep in mind that my commute is 100 miles round trip each day. Since Big B's car was in the shop, I had to take him to work and pick him up too. That was an extra 30 miles added onto the trip, plus about another 45 minutes of time.
2 - HUGE project at work. Enough said.
3 - I've been sick TWICE. Bronchitis the first time, and you guessed it, "THE" flu, yep, that one, this past go round. I don't think my body ever truly recovered from the bronchitis before I was stricken with the flu. It was approximately three and a half weeks in between bouts. And I never once took a true sick day. I worked from home...not once did I stay in bed the whole day and just rest. Big B was very helpful with Little A through all of that thank God.
4 - Little A turned 4!! I was very sick with the bronchitis on her birthday, so we ended up having to postpone her birthday party. Talk about GUILT! I think I felt worse about the postponement than I did about being sick. But she was great. Never really said anything about it.
5 - Started a "Biggest Loser" contest with Big B. Well, actually, he joined a contest with the ladies at his work, which totally cracks me up. So I figured I better join in. See, my job actually REQUIRES me to eat. Yes, I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. That being said, I've gained a TON and am ready to bid it adieu.
So he and I have a side bet going at the house. I got a jump start when I was sick this last time and actually lost 5 pounds. But he walks all day for his job, so he'll probably win. But that's ok - I still need to work on myself.
For a while there, our house was clean all the time. Then, when I got sick, it went to shambles. I just didnt' feel like it, and it has pretty much stayed that way for a month. This weekend is the weekend to get it fixed. I can't stand that feeling of chaos. I'm still trying to recover from the flu, but it has to happen. I actually think it will make me feel better.
So there you have it. You are pretty much caught up on things. I will do better at posting. I will make time for myself, and for you.
