It's been a long time since I've showed my little blog any attention. October felt like nothing short of a three-ring circus. We ran from event to event, checkups and soccer practice; field trips and parties. I just squeaked by every time I faced a project deadline. Not to mention we threw a little bit of travel into the mix and stared some huge life decisions in the face. It's an understatement to say that I'm so glad November is here. Hopefully this month will be a little more kind to me. Or maybe I need to be a little more kind to myself and stop saying yes to everything everyone asks me to do. (Jill & Angel...I think I'm starting to see the light).
A few other highlights of October:
- Notice how I'm starting to fill out my Splendid maternity top quite nicely? I mentioned to a friend yesterday that I feel like my face is starting to get puffy and she confirmed it. Not exactly the response I was going for. But honesty never killed anyone, did it?
- I'm not sure if it's pregnancy or old age, but my all ready horrible eyesight is getting much worse. Is it sad that all I want for my birthday is an eye exam and a new pair of glasses?
- Charlotte had a pretty rough month, too. She suffered both a bee sting to the bottom of the foot and bumped her chin hard enough that her tooth went all the way through her lip. She made up for taking a few hard knocks by wearing her tutu everywhere for the remainder of October. She ended the month on a high-note by celebrating her second birthday.
- Hudson had his first field trip ever, turned in a stellar performance for his school's walk-a-thon, and had a pretty awesome halloween. Oh, and he lost another tooth and has four more in varying stages of wobbly-ness.
So there you have it. That's why I haven't been around much lately. Lots of crazy, fun, exciting stuff going on. I feel like November is full of good things, though. We're close to figuring out our post-graduation gameplan, I've decided to embrace my pregnancy puffiness and eat my way through the holidays; and if I can clean off my desk, I've got loads of fun holiday projects in the works. To those of you who have sent kind words and expressed concern at my absence, THANK YOU! Your kindness means more to me than you'll ever know.
