Tonight's dinner is brought to you by Skinnytaste. Andrew and I have been trying to shed those holiday pounds, and these chicken enchiladas did not disappoint!
The plague has hit our house, and it struck poor Will. He came down with a fever during school on Tuesday. I got a call from daycare to come get him; his fever was 100.4 and he was complaining of body aches. Since it was low grade I was not terribly concerned; Andrew and I … Continue reading #108 The Sickness.
Today, was the follow-up appointment to the follow-up appointment. Today, we spoke with the neurologist who gave us the final reading on Will's EEG. As we were driving in for his appointment this morning, Will asked me if we had to get the ABG test done today. When I asked him what he meant, he … Continue reading #88 ABG with the Spoons.
This morning was a rough one. Will had his follow-up EEG scheduled for early this morning. This was a sleep-deprived EEG, so this required a little bit of effort on the parent's side to have this be a successful test. We were required to keep him up two hours past his bedtime, and wake him … Continue reading #87 Follow-Up Appointment.
I do not title this entry "the scariest day" for dramatic effect; last night was truly a nightmare. This Labor Day weekend, we decided to make a trip to see Andrew's family. His grandmother is turning 90, and his family is throwing her a surprise party this Sunday. We could both actually take time off … Continue reading #83 The Scariest Day of Our Lives.
I was completely unaware of how little I had been taking care of myself until my college girlfriends came to visit a few weekends ago.

I opened my MapMyRun account yesterday, and it occured to me that sadly I had only been on five runs since my half-marathon in April. FIVE. That is basically one run a month. I know the weather has been hot/rainy/whatever, but it was no wonder why I felt so pent up and anxious. I needed … Continue reading #78 Running is LIFE.
Over the last several weeks, it has been difficult for me to wake up extra early, pack the kids up in the morning, and get them out the door at a decent time. This has been rather unfortunate, because then I feel rushed into my morning since I am barely making it to work at … Continue reading #68 My Attempt at Yoga.
Today was the day of my mammogram and breast ultrasound. I wish I could say that everything appeared to be 100% normal and I have nothing to fear. I really wish I could say that. It was an emotionally exhausting, stressful, and terrifying day. I did not realize how stressed I have been about this … Continue reading #59 Health Scare.
I have not been writing as often as I would like recently, and it is because I have had a lot on my mind. I recently stopped breastfeeding my youngest, just a little over a month ago, and since then I have noticed changes in my breast. I found some dimpling in one of my … Continue reading #58 Retail Therapy.
