I’m not really good with ambiguity.
I have a strong Type-A personality and like things to follow the invisible manuscript that hovers above my head. Order is good; change is tolerated… the unknown is downright suffocating.
And this summer, I’ve been thrown for a loop.
Our family has had family illnesses and emergencies; property theft and damage, cancelled vacations, new jobs and new roles, and through it all, I’ve had the ever-challenging tasks of raising two boys, managing a household and running a business.
(I’m not complaining, I swear. Just an average day in the life of every mom, everywhere.)
Of course, *just* when I thought we were smooth sailing into September, I had some more unscheduled time off. This time, it started with a little boy’s tummy ache in the wee hours of morning… which escalated to emergency surgery in the late hours of night. Oh, my heart.
I am so happy to report that Reid is healing and recuperating well after his bout of acute appendicitis. In fact, he’s doing more than well – he has refused all pain medication and we actually have to caution him not to run and jump!
Kids: Overcoming obstacles like a boss since the dawn of time.
I’ll do my best to catch up! In the meantime, wishing all my readers a healthy, happy and productive September! Make it a great one!
