I am finally better. Better from a 2 week cold that was still going downhill by the time I got antibiotics in me. By day 3 of the antibiotics, I was starting to feel better. It felt sooo good to breathe. When you are sick for so long it seems unimaginable that you will ever feel well again. It was hard too. Taking care of 3 babies, three demanding little ones because that is all they know how to be. I wasn’t worried about getting them sick, because all 3 of them had already had that nasty cold. I just couldn’t seem to recover.

Anyway, sometimes when you are sick and you start reflecting on all the things you realized you loved doing, but haven’t done for so long, or all the things you could do, but were just too lazy to do, you start planning all the things you are going to do once you feel better again. That’s what I have done. I’m going to find a way to work out again. I need the cardio work out. I need to get my heart rate up again so that I can build up more energy. I am tired way too frequently, for no apparent reason. The best way keep from being tired all the time is to work out.

I am also going to keep a cleaner house and keep up on that dang laundry. I also want to start experimenting with new recipes, new things I can cook for my family. I want to start-up that online boutique that I tried to get going before I got sick. All things I need to do, to keep me feeling productive and good about myself.

Next weekend I am going down to the valley to visit a friend from TN. She has never seen J and I am excited to spend time with her and her little munchkin Liam. I am also excited to see my good friend and mentor Lanny. She was very motherly to me when I was in 8th grade and needed a mom like figure in my life. She is still in my life and we email often. She hasn’t seen J since he was 3 months old and it was for a very short visit while Hunky Hubs and I were staying in a hotel room in the valley. Thirdly, I plan on visiting Mel and Rich. I lived with Mel and Rich in high school. They took me in when I was sleeping on the couch at a friend’s house for 6 months. They gave me a home and a roof over my head and encouraged me to go to college and be all I could be. They shared their Christian faith with me and helped me a great deal during a time of uncertainty in my life. I have lost touch with them, stopped talking to them over a disagreement with the direction my life was heading in. It has greatly saddened me. They were not there for the birth of J. I really wanted them to be there but wasn’t sure how they would react to my life now and my husband and new family. I’m hoping that after the 5 years that has passed, we can put the past behind us and move on. I’m hoping that they will fall in love with J and that we will get to visit with them often. I really kinda need this. I need this to happen for my self-worth. I need to also feel accepted again and I need to have that sense of family back again. I’ve felt lost for a while, even while I have gained a family thru Hunky Hubs and his family. I just haven’t felt like I could be much of myself at times. So I am hoping to spend some good quality time with them. To find out what has been going on in their lives the last five years and to hopefully re-establish that connection again.

I can’t wait for next weekend.
