The past few days have been doozies and I am burning the candle from both ends (and the middle!). I almost didn’t post today, but days like today are when it is most important (at least for me) to remember what I am thankful for.
I am thankful that my sister is also a women’s health nurse practitioner and after a FaceTime consult with her had no problem calling me in an antibiotic for an unfortunate nursing situation. Today is also her 30th birthday! Happy Birthday to her!
I am thankful that Ina’s mood has stabilized. Apparently she is having a hard time adjusting after vacation as well, or it may have been for some other unknown reason, but yesterday when I picked her up from Danielle’s she threw an epic tantrum. She was literally unrecognizable and just before I Googled “exorcist in Kansas City” she turned the corner. After a successful swim lesson and dinner at Applebee’s, everything seemed to be better.
I am thankful for both my grandpa and grandma’s improving health. They are both rehab centers and just keep chugging along.
I continue to be thankful for our huge support system and all the help we receive from our family and friends. How do people do this parenting life thing alone?
I am thankful for sleeping in…a little. Cora has not been sleeping well, so I have been sleeping through my alarm, which means I sleep through my exercise time. I keep hoping to find time to make it up throughout the day, but that usually doesn’t come. So, I am just going to give myself some grace through this no-sleep period and really not try to freak out about it.
I am thankful that Danielle took care of my kombucha while I was away. We are days away from trying out first batch and I can’t wait! Once I ferment an entire batch on my own I will write a post about it.
I am thankful for you!
Have a good day!
