After a crazy week of appendectomies and weird facial infections (did I mention that last week?? Poor hubby’s face swelled up like crazy!), we are both doing great and I started whittling away at that to-do list again. I’ve been off pain meds for a couple days now and having very minimal pain. I’m still being careful about lifting so as not to go backwards, but I’m also taking full advantage of a freed up schedule and feeling well enough to do some housework and other projects.
My sister’s bridal shower is a month away and I had a panic moment recently when I realized that I hadn’t started invitations or anything for it. Brad drove me to make a Costco run Saturday and to stop at Michael’s for invitation supplies. I got my watercolor on that evening, picked up the last couple things today (decided they needed a little something extra), and they should be finished and ready to mail by tomorrow! Photos of the invitations and eventually decorations will be coming on the blog!
With the help of a friend I was able to get a Bountiful Basket picked up Saturday morning, and the Costco run finished off my grocery needs for most of the week. I have menus planned, and decided it was time to start a menu & grocery planning notebook. I think I found the perfect notebook while I was at Staples making copies for the invitations this morning! I’ll be sharing it with you once it’s complete!
The kids had VBS and 4H camp this morning, so I managed to have a couple hours to myself to wrap up errands and get some dishes and vacuuming done. I’m feeling quite accomplished! I am almost afraid to say it, but I think I’m getting back in the groove! I hope to have some pics to share tomorrow or Wednesday, but in the meantime you can check my Instagram or Facebook account for updates!
