Been a While

It appears cobwebs have grown all around this place. Life has been a little busy in the insane sort of way and I’ve been sleep deprived for well over a year now. Attempting coherent thought to turn into words to write down has been a little difficult.

Things that have happened in the past many months:

  • first birthday celebration
  • trip to Lebanon on my own with the little man
  • many, many, many sick days for the little man, minus the entire summer (2 months) he spent out of daycare and with his dad
  • 3 ER visits for respiratory issues for little man
  • 2 hospitalization stays for little man, which we care to never repeat
  • 1 asthma diagnosis and subsequent medication
  • incessantly blaming myself for my kid’s health issues
  • lots of cursing at the news
  • more sleep deprivation
  • voted and shocked by results (Virginia)
  • discovery of even tastier coffee

That kind of sums it all up. I’m hoping 2018 will not be as bad in the illness department, but don’t expect much in the politics department (which is nothing short of depressing and maddening).

    I’ve missed you, lady! And yes, I should write you a proper email. Life is crazy, I tell you. Sorry about your sweet love’s health issues but remember that you are doing your best for him. Kisses to Mr C!

      It really is. I don’t know how you even do it! One of the yummy coffees I’ve found around here that is local is Zeke’s Coffee. SO GOOD.

    I’ve missed your writing, but I am glad we have some other ways to keep up 😉 I am so sorry that the year was so tough health-wise for little C (please, don’t blame yourself, it’s not your fault) and that you’re so sleep-deprived. I don’t know how moms do it.

    Let’s not talk about politics. Depressing.

    On a more positive note, I love that you were able to visit home with C, and of course I need to know all about the tasty coffee!

      Me too! At least there’s Instagram and Twitter. 😉

      One of the yummy coffees I’ve come across is Zeke’s Coffee, which is local to the DC metro area. It’s so so good! I think you’d like it.

  4. Good to see you writing here again, Marie. Feel for you and your family, it’s horrible when little people suffer health wise 😦 100% not your fault! Though, I think every mother thinks that at some point.

      Thank you! And yeah I’m guessing the majority of moms feel that way even though rationally, it’s not always a mom’s or parent’s fault.
