Cars, Surgery, Pancakes, and Other Fun Things

Ohhhh boy. So it's been over a year since I have been able to think much about my blog beyond a few mental compositions. I am sitting on the sofa talking to Lighting McQueen about the fact that Boy needs to watch more racing cars (his Cars movies). You see, apparently boys make requests to their mothers by having their cars make the requests. Some days I talk more to my son's cars/trains than I do to my son! Well probably not really, but it feels like that.

So anyway, my husband finally dragged me down to Best Buy and made me buy a new laptop. And then the Intel rep that was there found the exact computer that I wanted in a special sale display case of computers that were returned within the 14 day return period--fully tested and work perfectly but cheaper! Which made me very happy considering how much I loathe spending money on electronics.

So much has happened in the past year. We have moved to a new town, close to an awesome church and all our new friends that came along with the awesome new church. I am still working where I was before, which means I have to get up at 4:45 in the morning two days per week -- but I really like that office and have found a third day at another office that I love. So now I only work Tuesday - Thursday, no more crazy temp/fill-in schedule. we have been doing said crazy schedule for the last year and are soooooo relived that it is over!!! Anyway I am sitting here drinking my coffee and reveling in the fact that if the temp agency calls me to work today that I can say "NOOOOOOO"!
And then a month ago, very sadly, hubby's Grandmother passed away. She was 89 (almost 90) and had just found out she had stage 4 ovarian cancer, and she went to heaven just 2 weeks later. So now she is in perfect health with Jesus, which we are praising Him for, but we also still miss her so much. She was such a big part of our lives, it feels very strange.
The week after that, we flew to Reno for my brother's 30th birthday; his wife had planned a surprise party for him and managed to keep him completely in the dark through almost a year of planning! So that was a super bright spot after the very dark spot and it was awesome to have a weekend away seeing family, and Boy playing with his cousins. Even my brother who we haven't gotten to see since Boy was a baby came! He lives in the Midwest, so had to leave the 5 kids and wifey behind (can you imagine the airfare for that many people??!!) but we were all so excited that he got to come anyway!

Next up on the docket---middle next month I get to have surgery. "Get to?!" you say? Yes! As it turns out, after years of avoiding the fertility specialist, I finally went and he said I have severe endometriosis which is preventing pregnancy--if we can get most of it removed, I should be able to get pregnant fairly easily after that! So it will be an outpatient laproscopy, after which I will get to spend four days recovering -- lounging on the couch being a princess while hubby gets to do all the housework/laundry/kiddo care. See? It's definitely a "get to" situation :)

I guess that's it for today. I think I may attempt some coconut flour pancakes if I can talk myself into going to the store for eggs. However I'm still annoyed that I forgot eggs when I was at the store last night. So maybe we'll just have bacon for breakfast.
