I was thinking it had been a while since I chatted at ya. Things here have been busy! I sound like a broken record; I know. A homeschooling, blogging, wife and mama is always busy, but we’ve had added excitement of late.
My mother’s aunt passed away last week so my mom, sister Sara, and my niece Ashley came and stayed with us for a couple of days last weekend.
This weekend we are excited to have Jason’s dad staying with us. Thankfully, I’m not easily offended because Jason’s dad is just as honest as so many on my side of the family. While I was cooking supper tonight he wanted to know what was cooking. I told him so far it was just onions and garlic. “I’m allergic to garlic. It makes me sick,” he said, “at least smelling it cooking makes me sick.” Uh…bummer?
I really love to have company and it’s great to be feeling like myself again. Recovery after Bobby was the longest I remember. In fact, I felt pretty bad for the better part of eight months. So for the last two months or so it’s been great to be feeling good again aside from being more tired than I’m accustomed to, but I think that’s normal since I’m still nursing a baby and chasing four kiddos!
Because I’ve finally been feeling better, I’ve been enjoying cooking again. Have you noticed? We’re on a soup kick right now. I think because I’m so excited that this Texas weather has cooled off a little. You can expect to find some of our creations on the blog more frequently.
I’ve also been excited to receive more sponsored blogging opportunities. A year ago when I first told you about how I was making money blogging and how I had dreamed of taking my kids to Disney World, I thought of it as long range goal. Amazingly, I have now saved enough to purchase a cruise for the entire family and one day Disney World tickets that, Lord willing, we will be enjoying in a few weeks! Thank you so much for sharing the ups and downs of life with us for in doing so you have contributed to make this possible!
Well, I could go on and tell you about our homeschooling, but I think I’ll save that for another day. It’s getting late, and I am tired. Have I told you that I’m tired?
I’d love to hear how you are doing!
