Mothering Thru Melanoma

My walk through the scary world of cancer while caring for my family.

Summer is over! August 26, 2011

And I am exhausted!  I am happy to be back to work so I can get some rest.  LOL

School starts on Wednesday and Bubba has returned to school 5 days a week.  We had a fabulous but very tiring summer.  There was so much I wanted to do with the boys but not a lot of it got done.  Besides the normal side effects of treatment, I managed to pick up a couple of stomach bugs…yeah, me!!  My blood counts are still off so I easily pick up bugs from the boys or others.  I hope it can recover before winter hits.

Bubba has been potty training himself for the past couple of months.  I am so impressed given he’s only 20 months old and totally self-driven.

Buggy has been reading up a storm this summer when he’s not at camp.  I am so proud of him!!  And I love the fact that he is actually looking at reading as an enjoyable thing, rather than work.

We have been trying to eat healthier these days.  We have made and canned 8 jars of wonderful Garlic-Basil Tomato Sauce made from tomatoes purchased at the local Farmer’s Market.  Buggy and I made a huge batch of homemade granola that is divine!  My attempt at making homemade yogurt failed but I shall preserve!

This weekend, we will ride out Hurricane Irene and hopefully keep our electricity so we can make and jar our Strawberry Jam!!
