August flew in and out faster than any month this year- at least for me. We’ve been so busy that it’s just been unreal. We dove headfirst into the trauma of finding out that Nate’s Dad has cancer, drove to western Kentucky for a four day wedding weekend, got to meet our new baby nephew, went out for my birthday – twice! one with friends and one without, had family birthday festivities for myself and Nate’s Dad over at their house, went birthday shopping with Ashley, went to Cookeville, TN with Jackson and Kristie to visit her family and to go hiking down a waterfall! Guys- I’m exhausted, and I’m sure I’m even leaving stuff out!
I’ll be leaving for Florida on Saturday and I’m hoping that this will be a peaceful and relaxing week of fun in my hometown. I’m trying to start September off with a more laid back vibe, ya know? ;] We just found out that my Father-in-Law will start chemo soon and it will go for six months with the hopes of a completely clear scan in 9 months. They think there’s a reasonable chance for this to happen, but at the same time they just aren’t sure. Of course they aren’t- that’s how cancer rolls! But we’re praying and I believe it will happen.
I can’t wait to post pictures from some of the adventures I just mentioned. I don’t know how I’ll ever get through them all, honestly. I need to get some sort of morning blogging routine down now that I work so much more. The only problem? I’m NOT a morning person, and half the time when I do manage to fall out of bed and into some clothes extra early- I know that I ought to go on to work and try to get ahead, so I do that instead. I could stay up super late but I’m usually up until 11:30 or 12am anyway just doing things that need to be done around the house or spending time with Nate. So, let me know if you have any tips on getting a good routine together. My time management skills are nonexistent apparently.
Have a great first day of September my friends! I’m going to celebrate it by going out to dinner with my favorite Brittany! ;]
