I know it's been quite a bit of time since I posted but as you all know we flew out to Los Angeles to be on The Doctor's. It was an experience of a lifetime and I have so many stories to tell, however, I was and still am incredibly overwhelmed and unable to focus on much. I feel I have so much to do here, like we went on vacation and now we are back to reality. Stephen broke his tooth on the plane ride home, he had to have it removed, our fish tank sprung a leak all over the living room carpeted floor and some of Bees books. I continue to fight to get on LTD until I am in the right mindset to make a decision on returning to work. I have household responsibilities, 100's of messages to read through and reply to some, Thanksgiving, Ty's Birthday, visits from my Mommy (which I hope allow me to get a few things done) the list goes on and on.
I understand why I cried when we were leaving LA. I did NOT want to come back. It was so nice and so needed to just enjoy life. To have no commitments or responsibility for a short period of time and instead we were able to enjoy the beauty that is California, I miss it. I miss the ease of it. Here we are, back at home. Struggling with hard decisions, praying some sort of answer to our prayers about a house are answered. Don't get me wrong, we LOVE where we live but in order to move our careers and life forward, we need a larger house.
So many media requests, so much interest in a book (I find it hard to write, I never seem to have a lot of time) but first and foremost comes Bee. She will always be first and right now she is very mobile, keeps me on my toes and now that she is at a fun age, more awake during the day, starting to get naps on schedule, we will be formatting a daily schedule so I can make sure she is experiencing life as much as she can. Road trips, walks, day trips, visiting the library, crafts, pictures, reading, colouring, you name it. She needs the setting of growth and development.
I promise I will one day write about our trip but for now, enjoy this little beauty.
