Our Busy Life

This past weekend was full of ups and downs. Saturday was a great day. We went to Disney on Ice and the kids had so much fun. Their favorite skits were The Little Mermaid and Captain Hook. Well maybe The Little Mermaid was my favorite but I think the kids liked it as well. The started to get restless towards the end since it was almost 2 hours long and I am not sure Kylie has ever sat still that long. They ate about a box and a half each of popcorn during the show. We also got out of there without spending an arm and a leg on toys. On Saturday night we had the big UK (Kentucky) vs UL (Louisville) game which is very important around here. It definitely didn't turn out the way we wanted it but we did get to see some friends.
On Sunday I didn't feel too well because I am getting over bronchitis. I may have taken a nap when the kids were napping which was very nice. I should have been doing homework however I just couldn't keep my eyes open. Aaron must have been tired because he fell asleep as well. After I woke up, my sister and I went to visit my Mamaw Hall. As I have mentioned before she has Alzheimer's and she has recently moved to a Memory Home for Alzheimer's patients. However when we got there, they told us that they took her to the ER a couple of hours before. To not go into too many details, she was admitted to the hospital with a very serious UTI and pneumonia. It makes me so sad to even write about it. I have been to see her everyday since Sunday and she has had her ups and downs. Yesterday was probably the best she has been because she was awake when I got there and we had some good conversation. She was pretty tired from a day full of PT, OT and ST so by the time I left she was worn out. Today she was transferred to another facility so I am sure all of moving wore her out. She was pretty sleepy tonight so we didn't get to talk much. We aren't sure what the next few weeks and months hold, but we are very positive that slowly but surely she will get her physical strength back.

It has been a very tough couple of months and there are times that I am so emotional about everything. With losing Paula, Mamaw being sick, work, school and trying to be the best mom and wife, I feel like I am running dry. I want everything to be normal again but I know that it never will be. It is going to take some time to get use to this new normal.
Here are some pictures from the past week or so. There are not many because I have been going from home to work to the hospital to class and then home and by that time, the kids are already in bed.

Kylie moved to her toddler bed on Sunday! She has only gotten out of bed a couple of times but she has done so good!
