Recent Happenings

Cam & Reese were celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday last week! Hop over to their blog to see more pictures.

Things have been crazy as usual around here, hence my lack of blogging lately. After dealing with Cam's sickness, we headed to Sarasota two weekends ago to see my parent's new house. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera so I didn't take a single picture, but their house is beautiful. Anyway, my stomach didn't feel right that Friday or Saturday & then BOOM, Saturday night I woke up with a horrific stomach bug that lasted nearly 72 hours. It was awful. As that was coming to an end, I caught a terrible cold. When I say my immune system is a complete joke lately, I mean it! I've been sick more since Reese has been born than I have in five years. It's nuts. I'm sure it has something to do with my insanely busy schedule & hectic lifestyle though. I am just so thankful Reese hasn't caught anything yet, but I'm always just waiting for it to happen.

Luckily work has settled down this week & so far I haven't had to work overtime the past two days. Since our move to the new hospital, I cannot seem to keep up. Every day that my alarm goes off, I think, Well, here we go again. Then I hit the ground running & do not stop until nearly 10pm. It's no way to live, if you ask me... Working normal hours yesterday & today has made a big difference though & I've actually felt like I've had a form of a life outside of work. And actually, as I type this, the house is super calm & quiet... Mike is playing poker with the guys & both kids are sleeping! Ahh, I actually get some me time tonight which is so incredibly rare these days! It's the little things in life that make me happy!

  1. It's definitely all about the little things! :)

    I just posted about how sick I had been since Sophie was born... and then read about how sick you have been just now. I definitely think it has to do with the fact that we are breastfeeding, and the kids are getting the good stuff, and we are left with little to keep our own immune systems tough... let's promise each other to take better care of ourselves! :)

  2. That's a great idea, Cheryl! I just wish I wasn't always so busy at work!! My health seems to go on the back burner!!

  3. I actually did a little investigating online. I was thinking that breast feeding could be part of your weakened immune system too. But apparently, stress & lack of sleep are the biggest culprits. Which explains why our household has been sicker than usual too. Although an iron deficiency CAN be a factor for a breast feeding Mom with a weakened immune system. So maybe you Cheryl should look into that... maybe an additional supplement would help.

    I got some great pics at Mom & Dad's of the kids, I'll try to email them to this week. It's been crazy busy around here too and tomorrow we're off to Orlando for a mini-vacay. :)
