The only truly exciting thing happening right now is that I'm almost done with this semester! Only a couple weeks left and I'm so ready to be done. It's still up in the air when I'm going to go back because I've determined that I'm too old to work full time, go to school, and run after a 5 1/2 year old. I'm worn out and I'm pretty sure no one wants to come to my house until the end of May when I catch up on the last 3 months house cleaning slack.
I also found out that I do not have Diabetes. It's such a relief. I have what's called PCOS and a severe Vitamin D deficiency. I've been prescribed 20 minutes of sunlight a day. No, I'm not joking, and yes, it's HILARIOUS. The PCOS can still lead to Diabetes, but we're trying some new medication and I'm continuing with the diet/exercise plan I've been doing since before Thanksgiving. This alone has made this week the best ever! Even though it took getting an ear/sinus infection to get me back into the doctor. Once she had me, she dragged me through all the tests. I didn't want to do it because I didn't want to know how bad things were. Well, they aren't really bad at all. I will most likely never be able to have more children, but since I'd already decided on that option, I'm totally cool with that.
It's nice that the weather is getting warmer and the rugrat and I starting back in to taking short walks after dinner. It's nice for me because it burns off a bit of that extra energy. It's also zoo season so look for more lovely picture slideshows from the rugrat. We're going to try some bigger hikes this summer as well, so you might even get some entertaining slideshows of the mountains. That's if Malia slows doen long enough to let me catch up and to take some pictures. I look forward to the extra sleep that summer brings. Mainly just due to wearing ourselves out. Yeah, it's going to rain for the next few days, but at least it's staying warmer. We're heading on up to the parents (who won't actually be there) for Easter weekend, so look for sewing project posts. I'm hoping to finally get maternity shirts made for my sisters. You know, before they actually give birth. We may even run up some quickie princess costumes for the girls. I wish I'd taken pictures of Hannah trying on all her new princess clothes. Malia outgrew some that Grandma & Grandpa Brey gave her for Christmas a couple years ago, and since Haylee got the same thing, Hannah got rugrat's set. It was so adorable. She had to go through all of the outfits and try them all on. The best is that she poses and walks around with her shoulders back. Because, you know, that's how princesses roll my friends.
Anyway, look for more fun in the coming months!
