Where the heck have I been??

Not blogging, that’s for sure. There might be some people who have wondered why I haven’t been posting much lately. And to those four people I apologize for being MIA the last few weeks. I worked from home for two weeks after my baby’s tonsillectomy and honestly the blog was the last thing on my mind. I was thinking how am I going to manage to get 8 hours of work in a day while tending to Elijah’s needs every 12 minutes (I managed in case you were wondering). And he was very needy those first several days 😉 It makes me laugh that every time I take a picture of him now, his first question is usually “Is that for your blog?” and is usually a little bummed if the answer is no. So, without further ado, here are the pics I used to document his surgery:

He was actually excited for his surgery. All the way up until we left pre-op at least

Got sick the first night, and I was really sad for him. Throat surgery and puking?? :'-(

When he woke up from anesthesia he was crying and upset. He would fall back into a sleep, and then each time he woke up he would just cry. When we got home, he slept most of that first day, which was expected.  The next day he did tell me he wasn’t sure why he kept crying at the hospital. He said, “I just kept crying and I couldn’t stop. I don’t know why I was crying Mom.”. I assured him that it was normal and it was his body coming out of the anesthesia and it really wasn’t a big deal. Three weeks later, and he’s good as new. Haven’t heard any snoring or as much heavy breathing since, so that’s a relief! I’m hoping this helps him, with many things, including being sick every other week come winter.

Since I had been ignoring my blog, that means I haven’t really been checking much on the comments. I get an alert on my phone if I get a non-spam comment, and have been responding to those. When I signed into today though, this is what I saw:

Seriously-84 new comments?

Seriously-84 new spam comments?

And yes, they were all spam. Sometimes a random real comment can get thrown in there, but this time they were all junk.  How sad for me. Lesson learned- don’t let the blog go for weeks without checking the spam folder :-/

And in other news, work has been really busy. It seems like there are 100 projects that need done, and I’m only finishing like 1 a day. And that’s on a good day. I feel like I have ADD; I flit and float from project to project and feel like I never get anything accomplished. Which makes me feel bad about, which in turn increases the flightiness. Not a fun circle to be in…

My baby is gone this week at church camp. I can’t lie, I love it when he goes. As much as I love him, I look forward to his time away and my 5 days of peace. And I’m very much looking forward to seeing him tomorrow afternoon. The camp posts pictures all week long so we can see what the kids are doing are just how much fun they are having. I think Elijah is a little sad every year when he comes home- he counts down the days till camp each year. I love that. Usually only takes about 3 hours until he is cranky as all get out and I’m wondering why I was so excited to have him home- combine tired Lijey and sad to be home Lijey and it’s not really a good mix. But until that time hits, I’m excited to see him tomorrow!

    Love the last photo(video). I just had Robby leave again after being home and I really miss him. Didn’t see him much this time. I am bummed. You never really ever get over them. Sometimes its hard to really comprehend that Jesus can love them more than I can. It hurts sometimes how much I love my boys. Here’s an extra hug, not quite as good as the real thing but the sentiment is there. OOOOO R

    This is NOT Spam!!! 😉

    How fabulous that he loves camp. I used to go every summer as a kid and loved every minute of it. I can’t wait for my kids to experience all that camp has to offer. Your son is so fortunate to have that chance.
