Bad, Bad Blogger

Lately I have been an awful blogger. I do apologize, but in my defense I have several good excuses!

My first excuse: Ella loves to play on my laptop, and recently she pulled off the letter O. Now it's a huge pain in the butt to type on my laptop. I seriously never realized how often I used the letter O until now!
My second excuse: The weather has been awesome here in KS (minus the wind, that is) so we have been spending lots of time outside enjoying it.






My third excuse: Kyler and Ella had their Valentine parties at school this week and I have been busy slaving away in the kitchen. No, seriously, I have.


My fourth excuse: I have recently discovered a new book series that I adore.






My fifth excuse: I just bought one of these bad boys, and I am still in the process of figuring out how to use all the bells and whistles.


My sixth excuse: Poopy training. Oh, yes, good times at our house.

My seventh excuse: Ella is really, really sick. All she wants for mommy to hold her. Breaks my heart.


So, there you have it. I have just been a busy little bee. Now that you have seen all of my wonderful reasons for being a slacker blogger, you have to forgive me:)

Less Than 6 Months

This weekend marked 6 months.

I have been getting chemo treatments for 6 months now.

But, do you know what else that means? That means that I have less than 6 months to go. I am OVER halfway done.

It's hard to believe that I have been doing this so long. I can't really say that it has gone quickly, because quit honestly, it hasn't. It feels like forever!

Probably the most difficult thing to deal with though is the fatigue. I am just so darn tired. The hardest part of my day is actually getting out of bed. Some days getting up and moving is just so hard.

But, you do what you have to do, right?

I have two beautiful babies that depend on me, so even when the only thing I want to do is sleep the day away, I get up and try my best to be a good mommy.

I am grateful that my babies are so young. I pray that they won't remember how tired I always am.

I pray that they remember that I played with them, cooked with them, colored with them, and loved them more than anything in this whole wide world.
