Here is what I’ve been up to that’s kept me away from blogging:
- My grandfather is in the hospital with congestive heart failure. Although he is out of ICU and doing much better they have to put a feeding tube in tomorrow. 😦 The problem is compounded by the fact that my grandmother is so deep in to Alzheimer’s that she requires more supervision/care than my 1 year old. I think when your grandparents are ill you worry about them but also about how your parent (my mom in this case) is handling it. I want to be there for her to ease her stress.
- One of our dogs, who we’ve had for 11 years and was our “furbaby,” has growled/snapped at Aellyn twice now. It is disturbing to me how quickly I went from loving my dogs like they are part of the family to feeling like “oh no you didn’t just snap at my baby!” Needless to say this is all really upsetting.
- My husband was nice and “let me sleep in” on Memorial Day and took Aellyn to the parade without me. He was being sweet right? I bawled my eyes out. This requires its own post, and I’ll get to that, but if you are a working (outside the home specifically) mom you might know what I was feeling.
On a happier note I added this cool toolbar thingy to my website that looks really cool. I welcome any feedback about it but it seems to be feature rich without being too intrusive. Oh, and it is free! (another blog-post-that-needs-to-be-written is about the sad state of affairs with BlogHer and Nestle and why I’m committed to keeping ads off my blog).
