CC and I are grateful often about how blessed we are. We do not take it for granted and we love to bless others when we're able, however we're able. But when a rough patch hits, boy does it tend to linger.
Here's what our February has been like...
CC came home from a work trip.
We got snow which messes up EVERYTHING here in the South.
(But is awesome and totally worth it all.)
CC left and went on another work trip less than two weeks after the first trip.
The SAME NIGHT he came home from work trip,
HE BROKE HIS TOE.
On his right (DRIVING) foot. Apparently the fourth toe is the important toe- where you bear all your weight when walking. So he can't walk, he can't drive, he can't do much at all, poor guy. And he doesn't even have a good story for it! (He tripped on a chair.)
We had staycation because we had to cancel our learn-to-ski-have-fun-before-we're-parents trip.
(We did see the Lego movie, which I highly recommend.)
Following staycation, I had my own personal staycation which was supposed to be a restful, relaxing vacation at home without cares or responsibilities. Except it SNOWED again, so it was not restful or relaxing...
... Until Thursday, when CC and I both woke up sick with the nastiest colds we've had in ages.
And then we've been sick ever since last Thursday.
His next work trip still hovers above my head and I'm not happy about it because oh yeah, Ukraine's kind of trying to prevent themselves from having a civil war. But sure, let's send my Hubby there for work. BOO! (Personally I'm hoping the trip will eventually just get canned, but we'll see.)
So yes, I am thankful for February to end and March to bring much happiness. Or at least health. I have been using this past month as an excuse to not do much of anything and this Friday I am joining #alittletoofluffy in hopes of giving myself a swift kick in the pants.
We are signed up for a local 5k at the end of March with the proceeds benefitting our adoption agency. Hubby of course won't be able to do it, but I am hoping to run it. If anyone local would like to sign up to do it with me and have the profits go to our agency, please let me know! I'd love to get you the info.
For those of you wanting the adoption update, we are just waiting for THE call. We're still fundraising through our puzzle fundraiser (see adoption fundraising tab at the top of the blog), but that's about it. I guess when we're waiting, there's not much of an update.
Below are a 'few' photos from our February. Enjoy, or groan with us, or whatever. Haha!
