M.I.A

My, oh my....it's been nearly a month since I've posted here!  Where has the time gone?

Well, for starters...I spent close to 10 days very ill.  I am currently working with a few specialists and have some more tests scheduled, but they are thinking I either have Crohns Disease or Ulcerative Colitis.  Not fun....

Christmas came and passed way too quickly for me.  It is by far my favorite holiday but I was so sick that I didn't get to enjoy myself as much as I would have liked.  Oh well, there is always next year (er...this year)

New Years Eve I was in bed before the ball dropped so no exciting news there.

But, what IS exciting is that I am in the process of getting new floors in our house.  The master bedroom, living room and dining room will hopefully be finished in the next week or so.  I'm so excited for the finished product but oh, what a job it has been!  I didn't anticipate this little DIY project to be so intense.  Pulling up the carpet in all 3 rooms, removing staples, removing tack strips, laying underlayment, laying the new wood floor, new base board, removing door trim, putting up new door trim.........ugh, makes me tired just thinking about all the work we have left to do.  But, we are more than 1/2 way there and it looks AMAZING! (and a HUGE thanks to my mom and dad for all of their hard work in making this happen)

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season and are just as excited for this new year as I am.
