Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day -Pink Floyd

I started this blog about 6 years ago, when we moved to Colorado. I wanted to be able to share with family in Canada and friends in California what was going on with us. At times my posts have been about day to day stuff, other times it would be about things I’d watched/read/heard about and what I thought. The 2 boys had their own blogs, because I assumed not everyone would be interested in their milestones.

I guess I’m not really sure if my blog has a purpose. I’m sure it would be read more if I put more work into it, spent more time choosing my words and topics. And I just don’t know that I want to make that commitment.

I do have some stuff I’m thinking about, but nothing I’m ready to write about. I’m still processing it, but I hope someday to let myself be transparent about it, if only so it will help one other person.

That’s all I wanted to share.

That Seasonal C Word

Christmas. Okay, I said it. But I only write this post because I know family & friends shop early.

Again this year we ask you not to send the boys toys for gifts. I have talked with Elijah about it, pretty much every time he utters the phrase “there are too many toys to pick up!” So I’m offering you some suggestions:

Books, movies, clothes (Elijah is 5T, Miles is 3T), art supplies. The kids love to color & draw.

As always feel free to email with questions.

Thank you. 🙂

I Swear I Don’t Have Münchausen’s

In the month of August, I was at the doctor every week. And I have an appt next week! Before you freak out, it’s nothing serious.

Week 1: Yearly checkup.
Week 2: Cholesterol test
Week 3: This was me going to get antibiotics because I’d had that sore throat for a week.
Week 4: Redoing a test from my checkup that didn’t turn out.

And I go back to redo that test AGAIN, because for some reason they can’t get a good result. My doctor isn’t concern, so I’m not. Well, not really. I’m a little leery that if my doctor couldn’t get results, what chance does the Nurse Practitioner?

Overall, my doctor said I’m in good health, and my concerns I brought up with her she said chalk up to getting older. So I continue on the path to eating less and exercising more. Two things I wish I didn’t have to do. 🙂
