Talk to us Tuesday: Meh.

Hi. It's been awhile - I think. I'm not really sure, as I had a hernia repaired a week ago & have been taking various & assorted painkillers since then. You may have guessed, I'm not Heidi Klum and having four kids did a number on my abdomen and - well, let's just say I wasn't walking the catwalk 6 weeks after giving birth (she's not human, I swear.) Anyway! Since I haven't been doing much of anything, I haven't had much to say. Been feeling kind of like this:

Happily, today I got the all clear to start easing back into the swing of things, and it's a relief to be able to leave the house and DRIVE again, even if I can't fully get back to my routine just yet. Although really? The housecleaning I'm happy to let wait :)

Since I have no pictures to share (I still don't have it in me to cull through our beach trip yet) I thought I'd share some Kid Bits:

Evie, the girl who wants to do everything until it gets hard, has decided she wants to quit Tae Kwon Do and do gymnastics. Or even better, take horseback riding lessons. Evie apparently thinks our sole purpose is to shuttle her around and pay for whatever her dream activity of the month is. She begged us for 3 years to take karate, and 9 months later she's over it.

William thinks he can't read because he's 'stupid'. William is lazy. William will drag his feet and drag his feet and drag his feet until he's wasted 2 hours on the 25 minutes of daily homework he has. And then he wonders why he has no free time. We've tried explaining it to him, but he just doesn't seem to get it.

Sarah? Sarah turns 5 on Monday. It seems like she's aged 2 years in the last 2 months - I sometimes think she's more on the ball with what's going on than William is. Heck, Jason is more on the ball than William is.

Jason, my sweet little buddy, after I got him into pjs & we were coming downstairs last night, said to me: 'when your tummy's feeling better can you carry me downstairs?' Absolutely, Jason - without hesitation.

So while I've been taking it easy this week, Matt's been pulling double-duty, trying to work as much as he can in addition to shuttling kids around & doing the heavy lifting. My mom was here last week & was such a big help, but this week we're on our own - thankfully I'm feeling more able to help and less like I need a nap :) (Although  I really enjoyed those naps!)

Linking up with Impulsive Addict and Seriously Shawn today! Go check out what others are talking about...


  1. So glad that you're up and around!

  2. OH NO! I didn't know you had a hernia! That's awful. I'm glad to hear that you're feeling a little better. It's really gotta be tough for a mommy of 4 busy kids to go through something like this. Mom's are the best, aren't they? My mom would drop everything to come help me. I love her for that.

    Jason melted my heart. So sweet.

    Thanks for linking up with us!!! xoxo

  3. :( Well that's no fun! I hope you're feeling much better soon. Though, I'm with you, I don't think I'd be chomping at the bit to get back to house cleaning. Love that Jason. He just seems so snuggly! :)

  4. Girl! You didn't tell us you had surgery! Sheesh!
    I hope it heals quickly!

  5. Momma! I had no idea you had surgery!!!!!!!! LOSER!!! Why didn't you tell us?????????? We care about you my friend!

    Glad to hear you are starting to move around - I'm in a Meh place too right now...hoping to crawl out soon......


  6. I'm such a loser friend! Not only did I not come to thank you for linking up but I didn't know you were having surgery! I totally suck!

    I'm glad you're on the mend. If you have nay extra painkillers feel free to send them my way;)

    Counting down until May! How sad is that?
