Getting Back to Normal

Its amazing how good housework feels.
Especially planned housework.
I've missed my routine.
But first there was first trimester nausea,
then awful flu,
then bottomed out blood pressure that landed me in the hospital.
And the disorder in my home nearly kills me!
Not that its a terrible disaster.
But it hasn't been its normal self.
So for the last week, as I've been feeling better,
I've been fixing all that.
One day at a time.
I'm trying my best not to overdo it.
So its one major housekeeping task per day.
Plus LOTS of planning for the coming school year.
Yeah, yeah, I'm a little strange.
(But you're the one reading this!)
Also, I sat down and planned all our meals for September.
Oh, how I've missed my meal plans.
Not that I'm complaining.
Despite my health issues, this summer has truly been a vacation-
Relaxing and rejuvenating.
I think that has a lot to do with my awesome little family
And their ability to be flexible and joyful and fun
Even when things aren't normal!

But it is so good to be getting back to to our version of normal!

So in the near future I'll be sharing our homeschool plan, this summer's giant blessing, and a photo shoot of the girls! I might even get around to telling you about how much I love cloth diapers, the adventures of moving 2 silly sisters into the same room and my contemplations on Sunday school and youth groups!

Aren't you excited?! ;)
