An Update... Again?


Without meaning to, it's been 10 days since I lasted posted anything on here. So, hello! I know blogworld can be quieter than usual in the summer because everyone is busy so I doubt my lack of posting has left anyone missing out ;)

To be honest, being cooped up on crutches all summer has been way more challenging mentally than physically. I definitely have that cabin fever/stir crazy/whatever you want to call it going on but thankfully the end is in sight. This weekend I'll reach the 6 weeks of crutches mark, hooray! After that I can wean off of them for 2 weeks and then I'll start some physical therapy. Fortunately things are healing up as they should but goodness has it been a long (expensive) process so far.

But injuries and crutches are boring so here's what else we've been up to!

- T is "talking" and repeating things like crazy. It blows my mind how quickly he picks up new words and sounds. His new phrase is "all gone" which I hear 200x a day, but I don't mind. It's adorable. He's still not walking at almost-14-months but I don't mind that either- especially since I haven't been able to walk myself. I keep saying he's just being considerate of his momma ;) He'll walk when I can walk.

- We've made a few family trips out to Lowes in the past few weeks, that's about as exciting of an adventure as we can handle right now. But with a new house there is a never-ending list of things we need/want, so it's a fun adventure regardless. I'm hoping to score some outdoor furniture next month when everything is on major sale. Crossing my fingers we find something we love at a good price. I think we want something like this... but I'm not positive.

- My book business is SO much fun and it's been awesome having something I can do from home. Again, with the whole stuck-inside thing! I'm hosting a couple parties a week at this point and enjoying every minute of it. Want free books for your kiddos? HIT ME UP. #itseasy

- I've had multiple friends make the trek down to see me and keep me company for a few hours during the week and I cannot express how much that means to me. Two of them drove an hour with their own kids, brought lunch and made me feel not so isolated for awhile. Those visits got me through the long days for sure.

- When we moved we somehow lost our coffee maker and it still has not turned up. I'm not too distraught as it was a really basic, inexpensive one- but I just wonder how something so important goes missing?? Lol. Let's just say we have hit the Dunkin drive-through a few too many times in the past week but buying a replacement is on the agenda for this weekend.

That's as good of an update as any, I suppose. Now that the end of crutches is in sight ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT IS FALL. Sorry, all you summer lovers- but I need to have two legs again and when I do it's basically time for pumpkins, festivals and zoo trips where you don't sweat buckets. It can't come soon enough!!!

  5. That outdoor sofa set that you linked to is PERFECT! I'm glad you had some visitors lately! If it weren't for my silly day job, I'd prob never get out of your/T's hair! ;) So exciting to hear he's picking up all these new phrases. I remember hearing him say "blue" for the first time and it was SO cute. Love that lil guy. <3

  6. Yay! The end is near! It's been a week since I last posted, & I didn't post today either so the streak is still going strong. If T started walking right around the time you got off your crutches that would be the cutest, sweetest thing ever ha. I am so ready for fall. This heat can go away now.

  7. That was so nice of your friends to keep you company. When I couldn't walk for 4 months, that is what I appreciated the most. Being alone and isolated does take a big mental toll! I hope you heal in time for fall. Fall in Ohio is the best!! :)

  8. lol he is being very considerate not walking yet!
    the book business sounds perfect!! i'll hit you up when i have kids lol.
    we lost our hand vac when we moved from our apartment to our first house, then when we moved from our first house to my mother in law's basement we lost the replacement.. when we moved from the basement to the new house i seriously kept the hand vac in my car the entire time, 3rd time's a charm as we didn't lose it lol.
    glad the end of crutches is near!

  10. Gracie didn't walk until 20 months, so I can confidently say T is just fine! Haha. This has been such a rough summer on you. I wasn't on crutches and that is SO MUCH worse, but I had funky health issues all winter and taking care of a toddler while unable to function is soul-deadening. I'm so sorry and I hope you'll be back to 100% soon!

  11. I am mentally trying to speed into fall as well! In November we're heading to Disney and it's all I can think about, haha. Good luck with the rest of your crutches journey!

  14. Isn't it the WEIRDEST that they're learning to say things?! Jack has just started putting "sentences" (I use that loosely haha) together and it is amazing but also SO WEIRD!

  15. summer girl through and through but if fall is the better time of year for you this year I'll hope it comes quickly for your sake ;)

  16. I'm so sorry you've been cooped up! I lived without a coffee maker for many many years, and then I put into the universe I wanted a Keurig and was gifted one for Mother's Day. If I lose it when we move I will literally cry.

  17. I'm so glad you're going to off the crutches soon! I can totally see how that would be mentally draining!
