down time

“all the variety, all the charm, all the beauty of life is made up of light and shadow

this last week flew by quickly as they all seem to do these days.

tomorrow morning we are heading off for a family adventure for a few days with some friends.

i am looking forward to some down time. no to do lists. no action items. no schedule. no work emails. no late nights or early mornings trying to balance (spoiler alert, there is no true balance) work and personal life. no errands.

just time to read books. time to swim with my little mermaid. time to go on rides and have fun. time to just be together. time to laugh. oh yeah, and maybe some nights of good sleep, that would be pretty great too.

this upcoming week will be the first week since the start of june that i do not have one doctor related appointment. it has now been essentially three months of having at least one appointment every week. i can tell you that i am very much looking forward to an entire week of not being poked by needles and not having any appointments. yes, that will be a good part of this week as well.

i am finally off of the antibiotics and i am happy about that. i have had a lot of swelling in my legs and feet so i am hoping that will start to subside now that i don't have to take those anymore. i had some periods of dizziness and nausea but all in all those meds didn't end up making life too rough on me. i am thankful for that. the bruises on my arms from the three iv attempts on monday are also starting to fade and so my arms will feel normal again.

i hope that you all have a great week, may it also be filled with fun, laughter, and some good sleep for you as well.

take good care. xo
