Sorry to have abandoned y’all last week for Favorite Photo Friday, but I had good reason.
You know when you push and push and push and you feel like your body is starting to wear down because you are just trying to keep up with too much and spread yourself too thin? Well last week, I believe my body was giving me a “gentle reminder” that I needed to slow down and start to take care of myself. I won’t fill you in on all the gory details, but I ended up taking a little trip to the hospital to find out that I had a pretty bad kidney infection.
The pain and nausea were like nothing I have ever felt in my life. I was in bed for 5 days straight….so all of last week.
By the weekend, I began to slowly get up and start doing a little around the house.
I went back to work on Monday, but I took very slow and tried not to over schedule myself.
I am finally feeling 100% and pain free again….thank goodness.
Once I began to feel better, I started to feel overwhelmed with all that I missed and everything I needed to do to catch up.
I am trying to keep those thoughts out of my mind for now and just take things one day at a time.
Needless to say, I have not picked up my camera in weeks…… I miss it and I am sure it misses me:)
Next week hopefully I will have some new photos of the girls to share and I will also be posting open enrollment for a beginner photography class. Those of you that follow me on facebook have probably heard me talk about it, but I plan to donate a portion of the proceeds to Teresa Bartlinski’s “I Love You More” fund through Half the Sky. I will post all of the details soon…. I promise!!!
Until next week, I thought I would dump my iPhone and give you a look at some of what has been going on here behind the scenes this summer.
Back in Jume, I took a Friday off from work and took the girls on a little trip to the new and improved crayola factory!
We all had a blast…. afterwards we stopped at a cute ice cream shop and old fashioned candy store.
You can see the girls enjoying their sweet treats and a close up of my sea salt caramel candy….to die for!
There has also been a few games of mini golf at night…and lots of bike riding going on around here:)
The top middle shot was the girls on the 4th of July!
Also have some random bath tub chaos in this set along with a few shots at Mimi and Coachie’s house one evening for a late night dip in the (un)hot tub with their cousins:) Love this shot of Reagan asleep. This was last weekend when I started to feeling better….she curled up with me on the couch and fell asleep. Not sure how much longer she will continue to suck those two fingers, so I took the opportunity to snap a pic…..she looked so young again…like a baby!
The day after the 4th of July we added some waterslide fun to our collection of summertime toys.
This has been the new way to stay cool around here in this summer heat!!
The screams and giggles could be heard from miles around the day this went up in the backyard.
If you click through to my instagram tab up top, you can find a video clip and hear them:)
Well, sorry I don’t have any “real or big camera” photos to share, but now we are officially caught up from June.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer and staying as cool as possible. We have had quite the heatwave here in the NorhtEast!
Be back next week!!
