Happy New Year to everyone! The last few weeks have been quite the whirlwind of craziness. I had a birthday party for A on the 13th, that actually went very well. The girls had a great time. Unfortunately 3 cancelled last minute due to sickness, but the ones who did come had a great time. That night I had a girls’ night out with my sisters and cousin. We had a great time with that (it was the first night out with both my sisters, my youngest sister just turned 21 at the beginning of December). The following day I had developed a nasty stomach bug. I won’t get into details, but I was running a fever and extremely nauseous. I felt better the next day, but still felt like I was hit by a bus (I very rarely run a fever, and my body does not handle it well after the fact when I do). That Tuesday was A’s 6th birthday and we had been planning to go out to eat for her birthday. I decided that I was feeling well enough to go, so we did. Our trip was cut short though, because E started throwing up. We went home and she continued to heave every 15-20 minutes. We were finally able to get her to sleep, and luckily she slept all night. She got better and then A had one rough night, but she never got the fever and hers only lasted the one night.
After the sickness cleared out (and 500 loads of hot water laundry later), it was time to get everything ready for Christmas the following week. Christmas was busy but not overwhelming, thank goodness. We stayed at my parents a few days longer than that for my cousin’s wedding, A was one of the flower girls for that. Saturday was a circus before the wedding, but the rest of the day went by so well. We had a lot of fun that night, all of us.
This week has been filled with opening the boxes that contained the Christmas gifts, washing new clothes, and just trying to take things easy. We didn’t do much for New Year’s Eve, just stayed home and enjoyed a couple of drinks. A left for the rest of the week and the weekend to have Christmas with her paternal grandfather. Friday, E will be going to her grandparents house for a couple of days, so we get to have a kid-free couple of days.
It has been a long time since we have done any type of real scene. I’m ready for another one, and I’m hoping that this weekend we will be able to enjoy being able to do one. Obviously, it’s all my husband’s call as to whether we do or not but I have a feeling he’s got something up his sleeve! 😉 It’s very rare that we are kid-free and we have some new toys that we are pretty excited to use. 🙂 We really should make the most of the time that we will have, because here in January we are planning to start trying for baby #3, which we are both very very excited about.
I am looking forward to 2015 and what it will bring. I am excited about walking this journey of D/s with my husband and seeing where it takes us. I feel really good about this year. I feel like many discoveries, new adventures, and great things are in store for 2015. I sure hope that I’m right!
