Yes, I’m still here!

I’m so sorry. Remember when I used to post EVERY DAY!? Yeah. That hasn’t been happening lately.

We’ve turned our back yard into our little getaway with the pool, the play set, the gator for Carver, the patio, we just spend most of our days outside.

This week is going to be a crazy one. Craig is non stop busy at the farm and Gannon has so many appointments this week in Iowa City.

We have decided to quarantine again – only going to work. That includes my mom’s house which puts us in a pinch for child care but we are making it work.

We went on a quick bike ride today – I’ll be honest – I don’t love my bike. There always seems to be something wrong with it or it’s squeaking or the gears don’t shift right. I am looking forward to exchanging it and upgrading once the bike shops get more bikes in again. Right now the selection is poor because there is such a bike shortage. But today was HOT so we just did one loop of 4.5 miles and called it a day.

It’s going to be hot all week here in Iowa and it is so nice to have the pool to cool down in. I spent about 2 hours this afternoon in the pool with the boys while Craig was at work. I’m still recovering from my sun burn from LAST weekend!

We spent a good 5 hours in the pool after Craig got home on Saturday afternoon – it was so much fun. I can’t imagine another summer without a pool!

You may have seen on my Facebook page that I had my last day of orientation to the critical care unit and tomorrow morning is my FIRST day all on my own! I’m so in love with my new job I regret not taking the leap sooner! The commute is great, the people are great, the organization is great, I’m very satisfied in this new environment.

In other news, Carver got a BAD owie on his tummy. The lazy Susan cupboard was just open slightly and Carver hopped off of the counter scraping his belly on it – he SCREAMED for 45 minutes – so much so that I thought maybe he broke a rib or something and was in the car contemplating taking him to the ER when he finally calmed down and let me look at it. OW!

Anywho, that’s what I know. Tomorrow will be an early morning so I’m off to bed! Thanks for reading!

    Yikes, poor Carver. I knew when you put in the pool it would be a fun family way to spend the summer.
