Getting Back To Normal!

Hey Everyone!

Today, and partly yesterday, we have been trying to get everything back to ‘normal.’ We had been gone for a week. We were two time zones away, eating, and sleeping was all out of wack.

At least for me, I have had two great nights of sleep since we have returned. We are still sleeping on a futon mattress in the Everett’s room to get him used to his crib, but better sleep still! I finally woke up today feeling somewhat rested, after I got moving a bit.

We have had to catch up on our mail, our cleaning, laundry, dishes, yard, and a variety of other things. I have taken care of a few bills, and have caught up on my work emails as well. It has been just one giant game of catch up, but I think I’m winning. haha.

We have also had to reintroduce Everett, to better eating habits, and back into his daycare setting, this since he was only there a week and then we left. It is taking him some time but he will be back in the swing of things soon. Speaking of Everett he had his one year check up and did pretty ok. He is just at the bottom of the growth curve for height and head circumference. His weight on the other hand is not great at all. He lost weight since his last check up. He still only weighs 18lbs! We have tried just about everything we could, so we are now trying to supplement him with some Pediasure, if he likes it. He is getting whole milk and real food, but I think the problem is with the fact he still doesn’t have any teeth. :/ I think once a couple come in he can really tear into some good protein and what not. I’ll keep you updated.

In other news, I have some of those photos from our stop in Nebraska! Enjoy:

Tuesday Lull!

Hey Everyone!

This is the most Tuesday, Tuesday that I have had in a while. Its definitely not a Monday, nor is is the slight rush of hitting the middle of the week. It is a very normal day. I haven’t had one of those in a while.

It is moderately busy at work. I have been working closely with UPS to find a solution for our shipping department. We hit a snag early on but looks like things are back on track. I have an issue that has been bugging me for weeks in Excel. I can’t seem to figure it out. I made a sheet for the company to use to replace the old way of sending around purchase requisitions, and it has worked flawlessly for three years now. A month ago I had a user tell me his wasn’t working, even though everyone else is still able to use it just fine. I am completely stumped on why this is. I have been racking my brain, then sleeping on it, then racking my brain some more with no avail. :/ I have since posted my issue up on a forum in hopes that someone may be able to provide some “outside looking in” perspectives. If you are an Excel guru hit me up haha, I have questions lol. 😀

The family is doing better. My wife is still stuffy and has a headache, but I can only believe that that will pass in a day or so. We are going to be over this sickness just in time for good weather I hope! It will finally be 60 degrees here in a day or two. WOO! 😀 My poor flowers have been more than frost bitten. I went out a week or so ago and got rid of all the dead stuff and made room for the flowers to pop up, and they did. Since, they have been covered in snow two more times! If they make it through I’ll be surprised haha. Speaking of better weather, we should be getting back out to camp when it clears up. We have to finish that damn cabin! We need to insulate the ceiling and finish siding the peaks. Once that is all done we can work on the inside stuff like the counters and bunks, as well as get the wood stove in place.

Softball is going to start up soon too. I’m not sure if I am going to play or not. Part of me doesn’t want to, because there ends up being too much drama from our teammates (They are a family), but part of me wants to keep playing with my little brother. It is one of the only things that we do together. He told me I better play haha. Who knows! I have a lot going on this summer and if I play I’ll have to let them know that it is my last priority.

That is all for me today. I’m glad you stopped by, I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀
