Just a quick post as I figure "blogger" out. I am just so overjoyed today to say that I am feeling so much better. I really feel like I am coming out of a FOG of mono and this last summer. What a drag, man. I honestly want to be mad at someone that this awesome summer, and such a fun age of Dekker, was somewhat tainted with mono, a sinus infection, 3 ear infections, pink eye, and a throat/tongue infection. And that was just me. Dekker was sick with me almost step for step-- now leading his doctors to think that he possibly had mono, too. But hope is on the horizon. I don't feel COMPELLED to sleep all afternoon. I love a good nap, trust me, but I was literally falling over on the couch during Dekker's nap and sleeping for HOURS. Now, I don't really even sleep during the day-- I more "rest." Sometimes I do have bad days, and I think it takes me longer to recover from big weekends (like Women of Faith). But that's manageable. Yes, this could have been a better summer-- but we still had lots of great memories and this, too, is a part of our story and will be a "remember when" soon enough.
I worked out Monday night. It was great. And I just got home from a behind kicking again. Thank you sweet hubby for putting Dekker down so I could scoot off to the gym 30 min before nap time. (One more reason I love a "work from home" Dad.) I cussed the teacher out in my mind about 20 min in. That's how I know it's a serious work out. (Smile-- I really don't cuss. But I get pretty dang mad!)
Off to clean up this house, do some work (oh maybe, drag), and get myself together so Dekker and I can run some errands this afternoon before a fun weekend, which I'm sure I will tell you all about soon.
On the journey,
