I'm still here!

In case you were wondering, yes I am still here.

I haven't done much blogging at all, I don't feel like I have time for it right now. Our lives are super busy and spare time is spent with a much needed nap or a good movie most of the time.

What are we up to you are asking? Well first of all we are still in the process of moving. The closing date is in a month. It has been the most stressful thing that I have ever gone through. I can't wait for it to be over with. My faith has grown, but has also been tested. I am so grateful for the temple. After an awesome time there the other day I am now convinced that miracles do happen. It will all be over with soon, and a new chapter can now be opened. I can't wait!

I got the kids registered for their new school the other day. They will no longer be in year around school which means that they will actually have a summer vacation! I am mostly excited because I found out that the school nurses will all be the same for that school as well! In fact they have it set up already for another little boy to have the school nurse come every day at lunch to bolus him for his food! This was good news! Sending Brooklyn to first grade was about to kill me. The stress has been lifted by quite a bit. I am so happy we decided to have them switch schools!

So crazy things had been going on with my health. I still don't feel like I have many answers, but after a few test we found out that my liver isn't working like it should. I have to avoid alcohol (hahahaha) and Tylenol for awhile and see if that helps. Then I think they will do another test to see if it changed anything. Who knows what is going on, but to be honest I am not worried about it. I have far too many other things to worry about right now.

My hubby is doing great. He has decided to do a 180 and leave/stop trying to get a job in the financial world. He was all lined up for a pretty good job with New York Life Insurance, but felt it wasn't the right way to go. It was still a commission based job and he realized that he will never be happy there. He is going to start back up with school in the Fall and will graduate in a few semesters with a degree in Criminal Justice. Yes, this means he has decided to be a police officer and will be going through the Police Academy as well. This is what he has always secretly wanted to do, and I am so proud and happy that he is taking the opportunity to follow his heart and do something that he wants to do. This might come as a shock to some of you, but to me this was no surprise. I feel that this is what he needs to do and I couldn't be more excited and proud.

I am also on the planning committee for our JDRF walk this year. Wendy Cooper and I are the Entertainment Co-Chairman. This means that the two of us are in charge of planning all the entertainment for our walk that about 6000 people attend. This is a big job but I am loving it! Working with Wendy is great! This girl has quickly become one of my best friends. We think and act so much alike that it is making this job more easy that I thought. I know I know ask me in a few weeks when I am a little more stressed about it.

So that is about it for now. Our lives seem to be getting crazier and crazier by the day.

I'm so glad to hear from you! I was just thinking about you today and wondering what you were up to and hoping that everything was ok! Hang in there with the move - I pray it goes smoothly and it's over quickly! AWESOME about the JDRF entertainment! Wish I could be there to see what you two come up with!

I have missed you friend! Thank you so much for the update. Hello! Crazy liver issues? That is so not fun. I hope the next tests are more positive! I'm glad you have an end date to the move, and so glad your husband is following his heart. It is so important to love what you do.

Praying the next month goes smoothly for you. And Horray for the new school! Little miracles get us through!

Good to hear from YOU!!! And I GET the moving bit...I almost went completely off the deep end...I am now resurfacing to a more "normal" (yes, I use the term loosely in referring to myself) and stable life.

BUMMER on the liver...keep us up-to-date.

I feel so happy for your hubby; to do what you are passionate about is a GIFT for sure. Wish him luck...

Have fun planning the JDRF WALK...we just got done planning ours. Ours is MUCH smaller - only about 1000 attend here in VT.

Im glad you're still here! (even though I talk to you every day and I know where you are) ;) I love you and EVERYTHING will fall into place!

Becky said...

I'm glad things are working out for you, but we're going to miss you guys BIG TIME! Dave is jealous that your hubby is going into law enforcement. That's his secret dream.

I am glad you guys are following your hearts! We have done the same thing and though it has been a HUGE adjustment it has sooo been worth it! The best of luck to your cute family!!
