I am just awful at this blogging thing. I haven't updated in SIX long months? How the h did that happen? Oh, quite easily actually...just hear me out.

So....March 6th, my mom had RNY surgery (weight loss surgery for those who don't know). It has been a battle ever since basically. She developed a marginal ulcer that had to be removed 2 days ago. Basically, the doc had to redo her RNY and remove the ulcer. It was a hot mess. Several trips to the ER, being admitted twice (before this time!), lots of throwing up and pain (that honestly should not have happened! It really hacks me off actually) I am not a happy camper as it has been hard on all of us. I will always be there for my mom, but juggling hospital trips, work, kids sports, and school has been a challenge to say the least. I hope we are on the down hill slide to healthy and happy! :) I am praying for her healing and all of our sanity!

Me, I haven't lost any weight that I know of. I am just maintaining these days. Doc put me on Lexapro and I guess SSRI's have a tendancy to stall weight loss and or cause weight gain. Yay. It's a toss up: be happy and chunky or rude and skinny. I will let you know which one I choose after I go back for a follow up next month. I honestly don't know if I would be getting through these stressful times without it though! I just don't know how much longer I want to be on it.

I have been reading up on Paleo and I really love the idea of it. So, that is something I am working my way into. I am considering dropping my Y membership but everytime I think about it, I change my mind. It's $45 per month and now that I have a car payment, every little bit counts.

After my mom gets over her new surgery, I am considering a part time job. When the H do I have time for that!? I have no dang idea. As it is, it's a struggle to clean my house, do laundry, keep up with kids stuff, homework, and work! I am crazy I tell you....simply MAD.

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and say HI and I haven't forgotten about my blog :)
