I've been thinking a lot lately about how I can change my life to be a more positive with the good, out with the bad. I also need to be a more productive person. I also need to think before I act. I also need to turn off the green eyed monster and be thankful for what I have. I also need to be a little bit more thrifty.
These are things I really want to work on in the next few months. Maybe it is because Spring is here and that means fresh starts. Maybe it is just because I feel like I need to be a better person, a better me. Whatever it is, I'm ready.

Sick of Being Sick

Week before I was to start back to work, Brady got the stomach bug. We thought it was just bad fish from Long John's, but was the stomach bug. It took a few days and then I got the bug. I thought it was the margarita's I had the night before, but tequila does not do THAT to my tummy. Tequila is much nicer. Thank god Case never was sick. Case had never been sick in his whole 10 months.

Ha....we spoke to soon! Two weeks pass and Case wakes up with a cough and a fever one morning. AND it doesn't go away. I can now write down in his baby book that he was sick. Sick he was....RSV for a good seven days and we find out today that he has an ear infection! Oh yeah, Brady and I have the respiratory virus as well. Oh the joy!

We shipped the boy off to Oklahoma now for the second time so that we can get better and so we don't "infect" him again. It has not been a fun few weeks. I've said this before, I'm a girl of routine. My routine hadn't even gotten routine and it gets tipped upside down, sideways and turned in circles. mean that's what parenthood is like? Yeah, I kind of knew that, but I still enjoy my routine every once in awhile.

Here is a picture of Case before the bug bit him.....

Turning Circles

Life is funny. We turn circles sometimes and it lands us right where we thought we didn't want to be. But in the end, it puts us in the place we need to be. Reader's Digest version....We moved back to Oklahoma, my hometown. We worked, we played, we lived with my parents, we loved, we fought, we grew. Opportunities came about and brought us back to where we just left off 7 months before. It's been a journey but something I needed.
I haven't wrote on this blog since August 1st of last year. Not only have we moved away and moved back but we have grew and lost. Case has grew to a healthy 25lbs and god only knows how tall he is. (I often forget numbers, so I never know how tall or how much my son weighs, this is by no means a sign of a bad momma.) He is growing like a weed. Already walking and walking and sometimes running! We have recently experienced RSV and that has not been fun. I love this little man more then I could've ever imagined. He is a BIG part of making my world go round.
I on the other hand have not grown in that sense, but I have lost. So far on Weight Watchers, I have lost 25lbs. I started October 13th and so far, so good. I wish it was more, but I will take it. I have been struggling since we moved back, but I don't have my "routine" down yet. I will get there. It is a journey I DO NOT WANT TO QUIT! I hope to hit a big goal of mine on my 30th birthday in July. I will keep you posted.
Another new thing I am trying is posting my link to this blog on Facebook. Before only a few people knew about my little blog. I am now making it accessible to everyone. Now whether they look at it is a different story.
So much has happened since August that I don't want to bore everyone or just that one person reading this. Let's just say Life Happened. I am ready for this new chapter in our lives and I pray that it is a wonderful, adventurous, grown-up, spirited, silly, loving journey.
Keep in touch, who wouldn't want to know about my favorite flavor of cupcake or crazy craft project I'm creating or words my son spoke. It will be fun....I promise.
