So apparently I took my own advice and just checked out for the whole summer. Moving forward I promise to post more regularly.
We have had one of the most insane two months of our lives and that’s why I haven’t been writing, despite having so much to write about!
As you know on July 3 our baby LJ was plucked from my womb via emergency c-section. Immediately following that we packed up our house (we being the Hubs) and moved out to live with my mom in Brampton so we could start a major renovation on the second floor of our house. Following the move we took advantage of the Hubs three-week paternity leave and went on a getaway to Blue Mountain and enjoyed various day trips to keep L’il E happy. When the Hubs took off for a week to San Francisco on a business trip, my mom and I rented a cottage and took both kids to Lake Huron for a week where we spent more time hauling stuff to and from the beach than we did actually sitting at the beach. I think we may have come home more exhausted. To top it all off I was a bridesmaid in my best friends’ wedding and L’il E was the ring bearer, fortunately I was able to put pen to paper and write an eloquent and heart-felt speech that I was proud of.
But, now we’re home. The first phase of the reno is complete and the dust has settled – for now.
Yesterday’s rain couldn’t have come at a better time. It felt as though the last two months had come crashing down on me and all I wanted to do was lie in bed with my boys and sleep. So I did just that.
Now to forge ahead. Finally I will have time to blog more regularly, get back to running my fabric business and bonding with my new little LJ.
What was your summer like?
