Where does the time go? Honestly, I have the intention of getting my blog out on a semi-regular basis. The last months have left me in a whirlwind of activity. So, just to share a little about what I have been up to lately.
We began the new school year and I realized that this is the beginning of ending a chapter in our lives. Our oldest, our son, is a high school senior. He has been investigating colleges, taking his ACT test, receiving mail from schools on a daily basis.
Our daughter is now a freshman, which means the downward slide is officially in process for her, too.
Our fall has consisted of cross country meets, my photography sessions, and endless activities. Both of our children participated in cross country. Our son is an accomplished runner, but found himself in a health situation that we never could have predicted would or could happen. We found out that he was suffering from ulcers. One was bleeding and left him anemic and unable to perform as he was accustomed to this season. He is on the mend and our team is running in the Cross Country State Championship in Fort Dodge this Saturday, November 1st. We are hoping for the very best!
This Saturday night is also our 12th annual Legacy Ball, a fundraiser for the hospital. I have been on the decorating committee since its inception. We are in the process today and tomorrow of creating a beautiful atmosphere at our K.C. Hall. This year’s theme? Greece! After we watch our boys run this Saturday, we will race home to get ready for the big event!
Last month found Al and I at our 25th college reunion from our school, Luther College. We had a fun time reconnecting with friends. Our flying trip up and back left us exhausted for several days following.
Al is in the process of re-branding the Rejuvenation Clinic at the hospital. Together, we came up with a new name, had a new logo designed, and have been in the process of redecorating the space. We are SO excited for Kossuth Regional Health Center to opening the Ageless Solutions Aesthetic Clinic in January! A lot of my personal time has been invested into this project and we are so thrilled to share more information with everyone soon regarding new services, equipment, new products, new staff… It is going to be a fabulous experience for all!
Add to all of the this time spent trying to be the best mom, wife, and home maker that I can be, it has been challenging at times to feel like I am not going to pull my hair out and go crazy. With the occasional reminder to breathe and appreciate each moment, I am moving forward.
I am going to make a conscious decision to try to not be such a “bad blogger” and share more in the upcoming days and months!
