Things are chugging along at their own pace, and everyone is healthy, thank Gd.
I can't stay up to write right now; I have to sleep whenever I can- feeling the need is constant and overwhelming at times.
Friends & family (parents)- I am so sorry I haven't been in touch like I want to be. I simply cannot fit everything into the day. Taking care of the kids' needs comes first, and that is all I have to give. (I'm *very* grateful for my nanny who comes 4 evenings a week. It's just that the out-of-pocket expense is rough on us.)
I made an appointment for tomorrow to try to get back to the gym where my membership has been on hold for almost a year (since the thigh surgery a year ago). It's a 10:30 appointment. I pray I make it there.
11:00 pm now... wayyy past the time I wanted to go to sleep. I spent time today and yesterday with a friend in the hospital who is after major surgery, so I feel good about that; at least something productive. Her doctor is the surgeon who did my original hernia surgery, so seeing him around has been a bit weird, but life goes on. We've talked, superficially, of course. Whatever. At least I am not traumatized for an entire day just by seeing him. That is a waste of energy. He's just not that powerful.
Going to sleep now. Lets all pray I get back to the gym tomorrow morning.
Here is a picture from Shifra (recently turned 10!) which was on my pillow this evening when I came home from visiting my friend in the hospital:
