I don’t know about you, but our summer is flying by! Our schedule has been crazy – from days at the beach with friends to family hikes to cookouts, even our yard sale, which we finally accomplished last weekend. I feel like I blink and another week has passed. It’s been wonderful, but truthfully, I’m looking forward to our schedule settling down this fall.
Nathan starts public school for the first time in less than 3 weeks. His first day is August 27th and I can’t decide whether I’m more excited or nervous. I’m excited because I feel confident about this decision. It’s been such a long time in coming and knowing what I do now, it’s wonderful to take that step forward. Of course I’m nervous too because it will be a huge change for our family. Instead of having the flexibility of homeschooling, we’ll be confined to the rigors of a public school schedule. But that’s okay. We’ll learn and figure it out as we go.
I’m looking at surgery mid-September (I should know the confirmed date sometime this week) and that’s a whole ‘nother ballgame. I honestly don’t know what to expect in terms of recovery. I would think it would be somewhat similar to a c-section, and I’ve had four of those, but others have said it’s a more painful and a longer recovery. I still need to talk to my doctor about some details and that should give me a better idea.
I’m a horrible patient though. I can’t sit and relax. My schedule is so busy that I’m constantly on the go-go-go and when I do have to sit, I go crazy. That will be my toughest challenge with this whole thing; allowing myself to rest and recover. At least I can still blog while sitting though! I may be incoherent from pain meds, but you’ll understand, right? Haha
I guess I’m just rambling now. It’s been that kind of week…
