I’m back, y’all!
Well, I survived my month of social media blackout. Actually, I would say I more than survived. I thrived. A friend actually had to remind me that it’s August and the end of my hiatus. I will be posting later this week about my social media-less month, but for now, I’ll just fill you in on what you missed while I was gone.
*I got a huge promotion at work. Having just gotten a promotion last fall, it initially felt a little too good to be true, but I’ve been lucky in that some really good opportunities have opened up at the right times for me. I’m really excited about my new role and think it will be a great path for me.
*My family visited during 4th of July weekend and it was great that they got to have some quality time with L. My dreams of us sitting quietly and enjoying the fireworks as a family were dashed when L decided she wanted to chase after the fireworks instead (in turn, JD and I ended up chasing after her the whole time).
*We have continued to soak up summer and JD’s light duty schedule by doing things “normal families” do. We’ve been able to go to brunch on the weekends, go to a nearby lake for an afternoon of swimming and playing in the sand, visit the playground, go on some low key hikes, and even squeeze in a few days where we did nothing but sit on the couch and have movie marathons (ah, the gloriousness of being totally lazy).
*I started seeing a chiropractor because, as it turns out, carrying a person in your belly for 9 months can really jack up your back. It’s amazing how much that goes on in your body is actually caused by misalignment in your spine. Chiropractors are highly underrated.
*L’s new favorite thing is pooping in the bath. I want it to be funny, but it’s actually quite irritating. I spend a lot more time than I like to admit scooping turds out of the tub. As if to make up for this, she’s gotten really good at giving hugs and even said “Wuv you” the other day. Melt. My. Heart.
So, there you have it. Our glamorous, riveting life. Aren’t you sad you’ve been missing all of this? 🙂
