terrible blogging

---------------another warning to the men ... there is "female" talk in here-------------------
I think about my lack of blogging and I am filled with guilt. The guilt isn't for the sake of my limited faithful readers, though that is true as well, it is because this really is the way I document my families development. This is where I turn to to remember the details about my kids, Justin, and even me that are so easy to forget.

Right now I couldn't even tell you how long we have been back from vacation. Is it 2 weeks? 3 weeks?? It is a while and I still haven't unpacked the luggage that we took. Lame!

When I first got back I was hit by a truck-load of immediate tasks (medical appointments, school registering etc.) I was completely and totally overwhelmed and even had a "cry on the floor in the fetal position" meltdown. I had WAY too much on my plate, but couldn't get rid of any of it. I felt that I was doing a mediocre job at everything and I hate that. On top of everything Landon was teething and was constantly screaming and there was nothing I could do about it.

Then came my half marathon. I will write details about this when I am able to hobble my broken body down to the basement to load pictures. Lets just say I did well, but I really hurt my foot! I hobbled around for 2.5 days and today it is starting to return back to normal. Give it another day or two and I think I will have completely healed.

You can probably imagine that with all of this going on I wasn't getting much sleep. What happens when I get no sleep??? My body tries to get sick. I was doing really well at battling this until I got my period today. My body gave up!! I really am not that sick, but my head is cloudy and throbbing, which makes it even harder to push through my severe menstrual cramping.

Thank goodness my dear friend came over today with her kids!! I got some adult talking, baby cuddling (don't worry I didn't touch the babies face or hands while I cuddled), and my kids were entertained for at least a little bit of the day.

I got my kids in bed, took a really hot bath, and am now curled up in bed with my heating pad, some Ben and Jerry's ice cream, and a movie.

Separated by more than a thousand miles, and a country, and we're still on the same schedule. Hope you get to feeling better soon!

Just look at your previous post...it could be worse. You could be at work, running down the hall to shove your face in a toilet twice and then still feel crappy so you leave work early only to arrive home and run to the toilet for the very same purpose. Yes I had fun today! I'm not sure which is worse puking constantly or cramps. They might just be a tie...both seriously annoying and make you feel like crap!

Justin, Kira and Evan said...

I'd say an equal tie!

As bad as listening to screaming children is, I've already gotten used to it. My policy is that if they are screaming then they are breathing, which means they are still alive and that means I've done my most important job as a parent. To recap: crying babies = alive babies = job well done.

If it makes you feel better the only thing I got done yesterday was pack 3 boxes. And I was totally wiped out. At least you ran a half marathon! That would be a year's worth of accomplishments for me! Looking forward to seeing you guys soon!
