# catching up # relaxation

Time for Me Thursday

I bet some of you were wondering if I'm alive out here, huh? Well, I am! In fact, I'm alive and mostly well, even! After an incredibly wonderful week in Canada, I came home to a bit of chaos. The lease here is up at the end of the month and the leasing agent "randomly" decided that he had to do a house inspection before he would renew the lease for us. So, start a few days of mad cleaning and organizing combined with some superduper omg yay company that came to visit from Thursday until Monday. Thank goodness he was here because my darn futon frame decided to crack and I needed some help getting it outside for some lucky freecycler to attempt to repair. We replaced it with a pretty nice couch that we found at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

Other than that, it's been field trip time around here. I've already gone on two field trips this week. On Tuesday, I went with Roger to the Portage Air Zoo. We had a good time. I'm thinking that we might go back sometime so that I can actually read the information about the different things we were seeing. The class got there late so we didn't have a chance to do the tour.

Yesterday, Roger's class spent the day at the Saugatuck Dunes State Park. I got some incredible photos during the first half of the day. Unfortunately, during a hike up a massive sand dune, my asthma kicked in and I spent the second half of the hike getting my breathing back under control. Roger was super great about it though. I kept encouraging him and Hailey (another girl in his class) to catch up with the class and I'd catch up eventually but they both insisted on staying with me and making sure that I was ok. I really do have a great kid and so do Hailey's parents.

Now, on to today and my time for me. Well, I've spent most of the day snuggled up on the "new" couch, catching up on things off of the dvr. Why? Well, because yesterday took a lot of out me with my lungs plus, my calves are killing me. It probably didn't help that I decided to go out and mow most of the front lawn today. So, tv time it's been for me. I also spent a good chunk of time flipping through old photographs which I just love to do.

How about all of you? What are you doing to relax and to take care of yourself?
