This will surely be one of those weeks where I get nothing blog-related accomplished so I thought I’d just throw that out there now! 😉 Faith and I just returned from Iowa yesterday after being gone for a couple days to say goodbye to my uncle who passed away Friday. Though it was sad, I am happy knowing that he’s reunited with my aunt who he has missed for 19 years since her passing with cancer. One of my fondest memories with Smiley and Nita was going golfing with them. My sister and I would drive the golf cart and wash golf balls while they golfed, and pre-driver’s license that was pretty amazing! We’d end the day with a pop at the country club bar. So when I saw their golf bags, side-by-side on the porch, as if they’d just gone out the day before, it stopped me in my tracks. My cousin, their only child, had said to let him know if there was anything we wanted because he couldn’t keep it all. Though I’ve only taken golf lessons once and Brad isn’t a huge fan, I decided I wanted those clubs. So now Brad and I have a new hobby to take up, and I think we’re both excited at the thought of enjoying a nice day of golf while Faith drives the cart. We shall see!
When we got home from the trip I unloaded the car, ate dinner, mostly unpacked and then sat on the couch with an episode of Young and the Restless. I was DONE. I didn’t sleep well in the hotel for a myriad of reasons, so between that and the drive I was pretty spent. About 8:00 last night I started having heart palpitations, and they didn’t let up until this morning around 7:00. I’ve had them before but rarely that long and other than a few minimal occurrences recently, not for a couple of years. The longer it goes on the scarier it is, and I wasn’t able to relax enough to go to sleep until I’m guessing around 2:00 am. I got a sub for Jazzercise class this am (because I’m pretty sure teaching with an irregular heart rhythm is probably a bad idea ;)) and Brad helped me shuffle kids to school. By then it was pretty much resolved.
So I’m starting today as the beginning of my (work) week, and since we were also gone over the weekend for various things, I feel about like a dog trying to chase its tail! I have a couple extra daycare kids until school is out and am planning a garage sale this weekend that I need to start prepping for. And it was one of those days where I couldn’t remember what laundry had gotten done and what was left to do…and I haven’t been to the store yet. So the next few evenings will be spent catching up around here, pricing garage sale things, starting set-up in the garage, and getting groceries and meals taken care of.
I have another curated post with HomeTalk coming up soon, and so many things to share that I never have time to type up…so things are on the way!! It just won’t likely be this week. Whew! I think I need a nap… 😉
