I know I missed posting my Frugal Friday Wrap Up for last week. We have been busy helping our kids move, get settled and I have spent lots of time watching the baby. I'm so glad to have them right down the street from us now and it has been great to see them every day and be able to help with Steven.
The moving and helping has been exhausting though. Tomorrow they are going to have someone else watch Steven while Jaysn goes to work and Rachel does the last of the packing of miscellaneous items from their old home and then starts deep cleaning it for the new owners. Steven is a total delight, but he is a very busy, curious and smart little boy and keeps me running. Anyone who knows me know that I do not run well. 😜
Today I worked on a few things here at home trying to get caught up including making some homemade chicken and rice soup. Jaysn and Steven came up for lunch and Jaysn had some while Steven kept us hopping while he chased the cats down. I was already in a crash/flare so about an hour was all I could handle. Jaysn and Rachel totally understood.
I don't think there is a part of my body that is not aching at the moment. Everything hurts. Tomorrow I am going to just take care of me and rest. SJ, I did not get to reading your email (or any other email yet) so please forgive me. I will try to get to all that that tomorrow. My time on the computer has been severely curtailed this week.
Moving is busy work. Take it easy grandma. I have two littles today and I am on the run.ReplyDelete
Thank you and I wish you lots and lots of energy as you chase 2 littles today. ;)Delete
Please don't ever worry about the timing on reading emails from me. I'm sending prayers and gentle hugs your way-- take good care of yourself, that's the most important thing.ReplyDelete
I'm going to PT tomorrow - turns out I did too much in the gardens last weekend and am paying for it. So in I go for a 'tuneup'.
Oh goodness SJ, I do hope your tune up helps. ;) I just responded to your email tonight. Praying you are ok today!Delete
Glad the kids will be close by.ReplyDelete
Take care of yourself and get some rest!
Thanks Cheryl, we are too!Delete
Take your time and rest up.
And have a cozy evening. : )
Thank you Billie Jo! I'm having a quiet evening after taking care of Steven this afternoon for a bit.Delete
Moving is very hard work. Get some R&R. You need to put yourself first. I know that is very hard as a Mom/Grandma but you just have to sometimes.ReplyDelete
You are right...I did take a day off yesterday and Steven went to have some fun with his cousins, my son Chris and our Heather. :)Delete
Some weeks we are so much more busy than other weeks. Some weeks we know it will take all our energy to do the things that are important to us! Watching the grandkids so that you will have family closer is just what we do as women. Your family is super understanding of your health challenges so they appreciate you stretching your limits in this time of need. In the long run they will be closer to you which means you'll see them and the grandkids more often which will be good for your spirits and well being. Plus family will be close by to help if needed and that goes both ways. So enjoy and do what needs to be done at this time. You got this! Take care.ReplyDelete
Thanks Crystal! It has taken everything that I have but it is so worth it. :) Being able to have them closer and get lovies from the baby is wonderful!Delete
Just in from my Physio appointment. I feel like HumptyDumpty sometimes.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a chance to get some rest and that your flare subsides.
How are you feeling after your appointment?Delete
Watching babies is hard work! Take it easy and rest. Hope you feel better, soon.ReplyDelete
Yes it is! Thank you my friend!Delete
