I’m here. Honest, I am. I’m nearly recovered from my sister’s beautiful wedding; it was a very special time full of surprises like the arrival of cousins we haven’t seen in more than ten years, and making new connections with family we thought was completely cut off from us. (It’s a long story involving divorces and family conflicts which go back to a prior generation.)
Anyway, things are moving along at quite a rapid clip in our daily life. Nik is doing phenomenally well and I promise to write about it soon. Niksdad is also doing well; he just got another “A” in his classes. I’m quite proud of him; I truly think he may be up for valedictorian of his class at graduation in May 2009!
Me? I’m still recovering from the wedding. More accurately, from all the food and drink that have totally thrown my body into a state of distress. To make a long story short, I’m not diabetic but I have some insulin resistance stemming from polycystic ovaries (PCOS). Every once in a while I con myself into thinking that I don’t need to be careful about what I eat and drink. HA!
I’m trying to rid myself of the evil sugar/refined carbs monster which has taken over my brain and body and left me in a stupor.
I suppose it doesn’t help that Nik is teething now, getting molars, and has been waking at night in pain. Once the Advil kicks in and the pain is gone, he is wide awake and wants to play until all hours. Last night was 10:45 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. His sleep cycle is out of whack, mine is too and it just seems so hard to cobble together enough coherent thought just to make it through the day let alone try to write a blog post.
I’m getting back to my normal self bit by bit and resuming my workouts with my sister. That should all help…I hope!
Meanwhile, I leave you with this belated Wordless Wednesday image. I call it “Fantasies DO come true!” (Note for my visually impaired readers; it’s a silhouette image of Niksdad holding Nik in his arms and standing with the vacuum cleaner! LOL —Yes, he actually used it, too!)
