Long Weekend Update


















Is anyone else confused about what day it is? How did it get to be Thursday already? What happened to all of those wonderful things we thought we would get done during our long relaxing weekend?
While the weekend did have it's good points, bits of bad kept creeping in to stop us from getting things done. We did get to the beach, but right by the water it was windy and cool, especially for the kids who wouldn't stay out of the water.

Luckily, our friends (the soon to be Mr. & Mrs. Williams, pictured above) live within walking distance from the beach and were gracious hosts, and letting my sandy kids wash up in their too cute, beachy apartment. And then, the sun really came out, and we were able to take a walk along the beautiful Grand Haven Pier before heading home.

Sadly, we didn't make it all the way home before my beloved Blazer decided to die in a parking lot on the side of the highway. We were only about 10 miles from home, but had to call sweet Matt to pick us up. The next day my husband installed a new alternator and battery, and she is as good as new. I am so lucky to have married a smart, handy man.

Monday my goal was to wake up early and get all of my projects done. I was only able to get out for a few hours of picture taking before my big gallbladder attack started. By the afternoon I was back in bed for the day. My gallbladder has been bad for the last 3 years, since my daughter was born. I have months of good, and then it suddenly turns bad. While several of my friends have had theirs removed. I am refusing this type of "treatment" and will let my body heal itself. So, I spent yesterday stocking up on organic food and herbs. Let the healing begin!
