Lately 

I’m kind of in disbelief that it’s already Wednesday. Where has my week gone? It’s been a busy one for me at work this week since I wasn’t in on Thursday or Friday, and I still feel so behind. Here’s what we’ve been up to…

While Abbie adjusted to DST just find with the adjustments we made to her bedtime, Chris and I have been having a harder time in the mornings. I love that I get to drive home while it’s still light out, but getting up in the dark is hard. I’ve needed a lot more coffee than usual lately.

Lots of hand holding lately…

 

Abbie hasn’t been quite herself lately – really not at 100% since before her ear infection. She hasn’t really been eating (and she’s usually so good about eating), so we thought maybe it was her teeth. She’s had some pretty gross diapers lately too, to put it nicely, and I thought it was just because she hadn’t been eating well. Well, now we think she may have had a stomach virus. Last night in the ride home, I glanced back and noticed hives in her hands. When Abbie was an infant, she always for a rash like that at the end of it. I’m hoping that’s it and this is finally going away!

I’ve only had my essential oils for two days and I love them. I’ve been putting lemon in my water, diffusing all different things, and I used some of them to try to get Abbie feeling better. I don’t know if it was just the end of the virus or the oils I used, but Abbie actually ate a full breakfast this morning for the first time in about three or four days. It’s amazing how happy that made us this morning.

Now of course, I want every oil there is. My mom doesn’t understand it, one of my sisters thinks in crazy, and one of my sisters thinks they’re cool. Chris is completely behind me too, which totally surprised me at first, but I’m going with it. I also am down a pound from yesterday without doing anything differently from normal. Now, my weight tends to fluctuate during the week, but that much in one day isn’t typical for me. Amazing.

This week at work has been busy. I also moved cubes to a different location and have a slightly different setup, and I think that’s really helped my disposition and focus. It’s amazing what a little move like that can do for you. Now, maybe I can try to keep it clean and uncluttered? We can hope.

What’s going on in your world lately?

    1. Yes! And clearly it must have happened to the whole month too, because it’s April already!
