Hey all! Holy shoot. What a year it has been so far.
I know I mentioned earlier my absence here has been due to illness. That barely even begins to describe our year so far. After I posted Xavier I was sure the next week or two I would be back up to feeling better. Boy was I wrong. At this point I am finishing up illness #8 and round 4 of antibiotics since January. Crazy, right? I am never sick. I think it has been 4 years since I was last sick. I can barely believe it, this has been one of the worst years of my life. I have decided at this point I should just call in sick for all of 2013 and try again in 2014.
Not only have I been sick, but the whole fam has been. We put Peanut in Montessori school 2 days a week beginning in the end of January so that I could hopefully get a little more done. Having a 2 year old makes getting most anything done a bit of a challenge. He had never been sick going in to Montessori and at this point I think he has had more things than I have this year. Unfortunately those illnesses have been passed to both Mr Danger and I as well. I am all for teaching the 2 year old sharing, but not this kind of sharing. I was actually getting more work done before Montessori school when we were all healthy.
So, here we are in May, Mr Danger has used up 75% of his sick time for the year already, and I am still sick. Fun times. Definitely does not make one feel like blogging, I mean, do any of you really want to hear about dr's visits, crazy technicolored snotty noses, barfing, a cranky toddler, and the latest round of antibiotics we're all on? I don't even want to hear about these things.
I have heard from many folks that the whole family gets sick for a month or two when kids go to school/daycare for the first time. But with P getting something weekly, and me bi-weekly since January, we decided to pull P from school and try again later once he is a bit bigger and has better sanitation skills (you know, like not putting everything in your mouth). Either that or he is going to be the boy in the bubble. We haven't decided which yet.
But I have to say I have missed blogging. Mr Danger surprised me with an iPad Mini as a Mothers Day gift yesterday and it has inspired me to get a post up. It is awfully handy since it is so little, which makes it easy to say, take out on the deck with me and get some words down for a post while P plays (like I am doing now). You have to use every moment you can get with an active 2 year old around!
So, I am here, I am alive, and I have a few things I am working on to share with you all. I am not moving very quickly though, I think my new motto has become, "I'll get to it when I get to it." Terrible, I know, but what do you do when you keep getting one thing after another to the point where you are not over the first thing and coming down with something else? I don't know about everyone else, but apparently I get a bad attitude.
Ok, that's all I got for now. I'll be back when the 2 year old and the sick allow.
