I feel like all I’m doing lately is playing catch up. In life and on this blog!
Since I last posted, Cooper had another ear infection (shocking!), I had a mild stomach bug, Lee got the flu, then I got the flu. Whew.
Somehow, Cooper managed to escape the flu. I have no idea how, but I am SO SO grateful. We all 3 got the flu shot also. This was the first time I’d gotten it, and the first time since 8th grade (when I had to miss the Valentine’s Day dance) that I have had the flu. Does that tell you anything about my decision to get the shot next year?
Work is incredibly busy. Between a typically busy year end, and a huge change my company is making, I have not been this busy since I started working here 3 years ago. I don’t mind it though. Makes the days go by faster.
I am sad that, because we are SO busy with work, (oh and that little thing called vacation days that no longer exist because of all the sickness since September) we aren’t going to get to start the annual tradition of having a little family Christmas getaway that I have been wanting to kickoff. Maybe next year.
The good news about being sick so much lately? I have lost as much as 10 lbs in the past 6 weeks. I have managed to keep a steady 7 of it from coming back. Yippee! Haha. My clothes don’t really fit any differently, but I’ll take anything :)
We have had 3 earthquakes in the past 3 days. We live in Oklahoma. Not normal for us! What is normal is tornadoes, but not in November. And yesterday? Tornadoes AND an earthquake! StopitrightnowMotherNature.
I am already in the holiday spirit and I am honestly fighting the urge to bring down the Christmas decorations! Ridiculous!
Speaking of the holidays, we are hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year, as I have mentioned. I guess this means that I have to cook the turkey? How?! Advice?! I don’t even like to eat turkey. I wish we had a turkey fryer, I actually will eat fried turkey. Hmmm…Oh, Husband!!
I finally finished a photo book of Cooper’s first year!! The one I made is actually for our parents, but I am still so happy about it! I want to do a separate one for us. The grandparents’ one only has pictures, but I want to include milestones, fun memories, etc. in ours. I had to start with the easier one because I put so much pressure on myself and then stress so much I just don’t even start it. Ridiculous.
Eggnog latte is back at Starbucks!! I wait for it to come out like a lot of people wait for the pumpkin spice latte :)
