this and that (once again)

Obviously my New Year's resolution didn't include blogging more. 

Things have been good around here- great even, but busy as ever.

The holidays were fun, fast, and over before we knew it as per usual. School is back in session and I think the kids were ready to be back in their classrooms I have yet to start home schooling back up with Jack.

Jeff left this morning for his long yearly trip (he'll be gone for almost 2 weeks) and I'm already counting down the days until he gets back. We got two four-day weekends with him in a row and we had so much fun on both of them that I don't have a thing to complain about, except that he's my person (you know, the one person who's just...everything) and I miss him when he's not here.

Fischer had pneumonia and RSV over Christmas break (brought on by the continual bronchitis), but we are now on the mend. He was his usual super happy self throughout the whole ordeal and he never ceases to amaze me. Every time I look at him I just see JOY.

Before he left, Jeff got my treadmill out of storage so that I can still run on days when the weather is nasty (and I don't want to have to take Fischer outside in it) and I've been using it (and loving it). But also? Interval training is not my friend.

 And just because I love it, here's a pic of Jeff and I - taken by Natalie - from last weekend at the coast.

I love this man.

And now, this. This is one of my favorite things that I've read lately:

"...the people God uses 
don't have to know a lot of things, or have a lot of things - 
they just have to need him a lot."

Jesus Storybook Bible

(For the record? I don't know a lot of things or have a lot of things...but I do need him a lot.)


  1. I'm jealous of your beach day! (:

    Does that mean Fischer was in the hospital, or were you able to treat at home? Glad he's doing better, poor little guy.

    We've been hit with the flu bug here, not much humor in that, so I haven't been blogging. But, hopefully I will feel up to it soon.

    1. No hospital stay (unless you count how freakishly long it took at RiverBend Urgent Care on Christmas Eve) and he responded really well to antibiotics and breathing treatments at home. :)

      Sorry about the flu - I'm hoping we'll be able to skip that this year (we actually haven't had the flu in years - knockonwood) - it's miserable! Hope you guys are on the mend!

  2. Poor Fischer {and mama}! God speed until Jeff gets back! Did I use that phrase correctly, I dunno. :)
