We didn’t have a lot going on this week, but Bev and Mav had preschool open house. I am ready for preschool to start. Being cooped up in the house for four plus months isn’t good for anyone. Granted we had time to visit family, which was so fun and so exhausting, but definitely good for our mental health. Really, though, I just need a couple of hours a week break from Bev so I can enjoy her sweetness and high energy a bit more.
I can’t believe all of the crazy things going on in our world. I feel like keeping my head in the sand is best for my mental and emotional well being right now but it’s still hard to completely cut myself out of the world.
Health wise I haven’t been doing great. I went to my primary about two weeks ago and he recommended I go to a specialist. This week I met with the specialist and he thinks I need an endoscopy, colonoscopy, ultrasound on my gallbladder, and an eco cardiogram. I think the colonoscopy and eco aren’t related at all— more of a preventative test given my family’s histories, and after talking to Nik, it is very possible I’ve been experiencing the same stomach issues he and Dan have.
I don’t want this post to be a downer, but these are my realities. I don’t have an instagram life and I don’t pretend to have one, but I really love my life despite all that I’m going through health wise. I have an amazing, hard-working, loving, playful husband, four gorgeous and healthy children, and a knowledge and relationship with my savior, Jesus Christ. I would say I’m pretty darn blessed.
