Wow! It seems forever since I was able to sit down and catch the blog up!
Things in my life are going well. I have had plantars fiacitis & a pinched sciatic nerve this year. I’m finally starting to feel a little better and was even able to walk a half mile tonight. A big improvement, I assure you. Getting old officially sucks as my right ankle (old injury) and my right knee (old injury) both are swollen but I am determined to be able to walk and not be winded. I am determined to be active if it’s the last thing I do.
Dad is doing well. He’s had two successful cataract surgeries, and is able to drive again. This is a blessing to us. His health continues to improve. He helps alot around the house and is even talking about doing some projects around the house I’ve wanted done…namely a lazy Susan in the kitchen and adding more shelves into a kitchen cabinet and making other closets in the utility room into coat closets for us.
Jason is doing well. He’s been biking 12 miles a day and running a mile. He looks wonderful. His running days are now behind him as he has some sort of knee issue and is grounded to walking until further notice. His job is doing well and we are slowly adjusting to life in the parents house.
Jayden is flourishing into quite the tween. All of a sudden he’s all but 3″ of my height. His chest is filling out. His face isn’t smooth as a baby’s butt. Mr. Principals Honor Roll for the first 9 weeks of 7th grade is doing very well in school. We are anxiously awaiting for November 17 as the stage 2 braces come off for good. He’ll be in retainers until he’s in college, but his braces days are almost over.
Our new addition, Seneca is as fiesty as ever. She keeps the house in constant chaos. Lakota just looks at her and all but shakes her head in disgust. Fun times in the puppy department at our house, for sure!
Last year we were cleaning, painting and moving from Sept – December. This year we are settled and looking forward to the holiday’s. I’m looking forward to trying to make up a Christmas to my boy who so graciously gave up so much last year so we could move in and get my dad home from the nursing home.
