Back At It

Hey friends!  For those of you who follow this blog regularly, you’ll notice it’s been a bit since I’ve posted.  I took a bit of a break and it felt nice to let life happen.  But I missed you all so here’s an update on what’s been going on:

Nolan had a scheduled cardiology appointment, which went well.  I don’t want to spoil the complete result of it, so I’m going to post a little bit more about that in the coming days.


I managed to sprain my back during a trip to Ikea.  For the record, I was lifting with my legs until the box slipped and I tried to catch it.  The result was some really intense pain…to the point where I couldn’t even pick up any of the kids.  When I went to the doc, they prescribed me some steroids.  Of course, since I have an overactive imagination, this is how I pictured my time being prescribed steroids:


Buuuuut…reality was more like this:


No joke, those things made me into some kinda crazy ravenous beast….I was always hungry.  Luckily for me, it only lasted a week and my back feels 100% better.  Goodness that was a brutal few days at first because I was like “ahhhh my back hurts but blaaaaaaargh I wanna eat EVERYTHINNNNNG!”


Looking ahead there’s lots of really cool stuff on the horizon.  There’s another Pediatric Congenital Heart Association guest blog coming up soon and I also have the honor of speaking at a parent breakout session during Camp Luck’s Family Camp this month, so that’s really exciting.  Hopefully I do a great job!

It’s good to be back, friends…let’s continue the fun and good conversation!
