I can't even think of anything to write to update my family. I wrote on my other blog the other day for the first time since moving. It's been almost four months since we moved. I think it's safe to say I'm not even close to being a blogger anymore. And I kind of...wait, totally...love that! I always hated the term 'blogger.' I still do, it's like I can hear the contempt in people's voice when they say the word.
I like reading my friends and relatives blogs. There are a few blogs that I'll read here and there. Most blogs that I used to like I haven't looked at in years. The few bloggers I really can't stand (and they all can't seem to stand each other either) I haven't looked at in years. I see them on other social media platforms now and then. But I definitely burned a few bridges along the way, I didn't mean to. I'm really not a mean person and I hate conflict. But life happens and you make mistakes and not every one is going to like you. Oh well.
For any family or friends that might still check this out from time to time here's a little update on us:
Husband still loves his job. He's lost over 40 pounds since September and looks AWESOME!
I'm still running and need to get the guts up to register for a half-marathon (well, two of them honestly) that's I'm eying. I LOVE that we moved up here because there are races all the time. Seriously, I just registered on Wednesday night for a 5k that's tomorrow. :)
My oldest is about to turn 8 and finish second grade. In our religion 8 is a big age and she will be getting baptized in a few weeks and can't wait!
My middle is about to finish kindergarten via homeschool. We are so ready to be done with this little adventure. It was definitely the right choice for this year (we lived where she missed the deadline and moved to where she made the deadline. If we hadn't done it she'd be going to kindergarten next year as likely the oldest kid in the class and I wasn't cool with that).
Our youngest is amazing. We had a scare with her this week. She became suddenly ill on Monday and we rushed her to the doctor. Lots of tests later and they have no idea what made her so sick. But they were as worried about her as we were. It's been a week of ups and downs for sure. The poor girl needs a break from doctors after a failed IV attempt (for fluids), one failed blood draw, two successful blood draws, a finger prick for more blood, and four shots in her legs (2 in each). Plus a catheter...shudder, I hated that she had to have that. I've been there done that after two of my labors. Hated it!
That's about it from here. We're just taking things a day at a time.
Happy Mother's Day this weekend to all the mothers out there!
