Blogging Catch-up

      I'm doing just fine and so is DH with his foot, though was pretty stubborn about finally getting to the doctor. No break and diagnosed as soft tissue damage. It still is inflamed, and tender and sounds like the healing process will be a while. His blood pressure was good-I as getting afraid of that and risk of thrombosis. Between him hobbling around, the kids home and still not reorganized, and now actually having social things on the calendar, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed to add much blogging to the mix. Add to that work being more than regulars busy, and I'm finding I need to get back to scheduling even blogging time in my day. It's only been a week or so of irregular blog writing and reading but I do miss it-miss you all. So here's a quick list of things going on in life right now:

  • DH is in a boot for his foot. I felt bad that he finally had a Saturday off to go to our nephews  Confirmation, and then we met up with friends, but he was not really able to enjoy the time since he was uncomfortable. 
  • DS is getting back to work still the testing when he is on set, but he is now J&J vaccinated, and waiting for the two week mark. I was happy he let me know which one he ended up getting, but I suppose he thought it would keep me form asking. 
  • DD1 is still keeping an eye out in the housing market and added another community to her search, but took one off. She decided she would look closer to the cities, and going too far the other direction wouldn't work so well for her current or future work. I went to a showing with her yesterday, and absolutely charming house that checked about 70% of her boxes, but the things that didn't, were expensive things to remediate. She's getting good at rationalizing pro's and con's of houses, and was pleased to add this new area to her search. 
  • DD2 had her second shot on Saturday. She did well, though ran a temperature Saturday night, and slept  1/2 the day Sunday. By late afternoon was feeling herself. I think I mentioned last week she had an interview for a paid internship for fall. I'm happy to share she got it!  This week she is wrapping up her remote volunteer  job, and has an interview for an Americorp position that would start June 6 and rung 10 weeks to about mid August. 
  • Me? I sort of covered it in the top. I feel very scattered right now-between this life of staying at home, and cautiously moving forward. Now that I know I'll be working at least 50% time form home-maybe more, I have to stop kicking the can down the road on separating work and life space. I've got ideas though.  

That's my quick catch-up. I want to get  my friends blogs read. I'll see some of you over tin those comments! Have a good week.

  1. Good to see you back blogging again. I reckoned you must have been a bit overwhelmed with everything that's going on, but I'm so glad your husband at least got his foot sorted out and that it wasn't more serious. And well done DD2 on getting that job. Life feels like it might be getting slowly back to normal doesn't it!

    1. Busy and lazy feels like a luxury to be busy, then I'm a bit overwhelmed after such a sedentary year. I'm happy for her. Now, we'll see what she can get line up for June.

    1. He just turned it wrong-over extended, I've joked that he was trying to walk and chew gum at the same time.

  3. Glad to hear your husband did have a break, it sure sounded concerning. I hope he's feeling better soon. Glad you popped in to let us know all is well. Of course we miss you but we'll be here when you get more settled. :)

    1. At least for a break, they could cast it, and keep it immobile. This will just be a long healing process. Settle? I feel like I am now back to my unorganized life.

  4. Hope you had a Happy Mother’s Day! Did hubby learn his lesson about seeking medical attention since he dodged major injury this time? And what did I tell ya, your youngest doesn’t need any luck when she’s just that good ;) Congrats to her! JoAnn

    1. Oh JoAnn, of course he didn't! He'll be an idiot the next time as well. She didn't feel her interview went that well, but I think her doing that volunteer activity this semester has helped her tremendously. She had real concrete things she could respond to.

    1. As I write today, it feels like progress. I just wish there wasn't a lull now on the vaccination front.

  6. I was away for a few days, so I was relieved to get your catchup.
    I admire so how many balls you regularly juggle.

    1. I forgot how to juggle this last year-which is why I am disheveled. I hope your weekend trip was the best.
