Just Busy!

Okay y'all. A few people have emailed me to make sure I'm alive. I am! Not only that, but I'm happier than ever.

That pic was a few weeks when we went to Yo Gabba Gabba Live! Here's another:

As far as my weight goes--I'm below where I was when I got pregnant. Gracie is now 6 months old. How did that happen?!

My oldest just turned 5! What the what?!!!

My little Gracie has been in the hospital four times since birth... Respiratory issues. It started with RSV back in November. Now she's on Flovent, Albuterol, and occasionally steroids and is doing much better. Last hospital admission was back in February so hopefully that is all behind us now.

My boys had their tonsils and adenoids removed last month. Here they are looking pitiful.

They are doing great now though!

Last week I got my face lasered. The CO2 dot laser. Ouch. It still hurts.

It's supposed to help smooth out some acne scars and blast away the melasma I've had since the first pregnancy. My whole face still itches horribly and burns so I hope it was worth the cost and the suffering, lol. Also, Vaseline on your face feels disgusting but is a necessary evil.

I think lighting my face on fire would be a lot cheaper and would probably not hurt any worse.

My sweet Grace is already 6 months old, rolling over and cooing like crazy.

Here she is with my MIL on Valentine's Day.

Oh, and besides working full-time, I've been learning how to quilt. This one still needs a border.

And this one now has a wide hot pink border but I still need to quilt it...thinking about mailing it off to be professionally finished from this point....

I'm so ridiculously busy but loving life!! Right now I'm working 30+ hours a week but am thinking about dropping my hours down. I miss my babies! I hate dropping them off at 7 and leaving them there for TEN hours. Makes me feel horrible.

But I do enjoy my job, doing inpatient acute therapy (I'm an OT), I just want more balance in my life, that's all.

Since Grace was born I STILL have not resumed working out! Getting to 141 without exercising is amazing if you ask me but I'd still like to get toned up. With that said, my job is quite physical. A lot of heaving lifting, think about how heavy a stroke patient's limbs are....and a lot of walking. My pedometer says I go about 8000 steps a day. But I want to do more. I want to get some strength training.

But I need some balance first....must cut work hours....

Going to Vegas with my hubby in a few days. That'll be the first "real" vacation we've had since BK (before kids). Well, alone that is! We've been all over with our sweetie pies in tow.
