The last 5 weeks have been rough to say the least… I try to keep this a fun and happy place but ya know, sometimes life just doesn’t go as planned.

I ran myself pretty ragged before Christmas focusing on my business. I am so incredibly grateful for all of the support but a little bummed I ended up running out of time for some of my favorite Christmas traditions. Then the week before Christmas Parker ended up taking a trip to the ER for a concussion and the next day Caity’s school called and she had lice. Rob and I went into survival mode and did what needed to be done. We ended up leaving for NJ a few days earlier than planned which meant we never decorated the tree and I ran out of time to take photos for our Christmas home tour.

It was nice being home with family and having some extra hands. Unfortunately, my body decided to completely shut down. For the last 5 weeks I have been battling one thing or another, visiting the Dr and urgent care regularly, and taking medication after medication. At the core it’s a bad cold, but along the way I developed an ear infection, sinus infection, and most recently phenomena. I am slowly getting better, just in time for both kids to spike fevers.

I’ve had to put a lot on hold and that is very hard for me. Canceling meetings, turning away customers, walking through a messy and unorganized home. Not to mention my training for the 10K and 1/2 in Disney next month has come to a dead halt. I know it isn’t suppose to bother me, but it does.

Looks like we are in for a long few days. In the meantime it’s light snacks, lots of water, movies, and cuddles on the couch. Fingers crossed a relaxing weekend at home will speed up recovery. I don’t think I can take many more replays of Home or being stuck in the house.
