Hi friends. You all probably thought I'd forgotten about poor little Nesting Instincts, didn't you? Au contraire. It's definitely been on the back burner this summer, but not totally forgotten. You see, I'm down one uterus since I last posted. That's right, in the last five months I have given birth to my third child and had a hysterectomy. I am now almost five weeks post-surgery and am FINALLY starting to feel human again! Woohoo!! Summer of 2009 has sort of been "The Summer That Never Was" for me. I was in pain for months following my son's birth, due to endometriosis, and then was in pain for weeks following my surgery. But now, things are finally...looking....up!
I have to admit that at this point, I'm not entirely sure what the future holds for Nesting Instincts. I haven't missed the business as much as I thought I would over the last year. Perhaps that's just because I've been so slammed with physical stuff I just didn't have much energy to think about N.I. And certainly, my focus going into the fall is sending my oldest daughter off to preschool and finally giving my other two children the attention they deserve (my baby has the most laidback personality ever, which is great, because he hasn't gotten much attention over the last few months! But at the same time, because he's laidback, he doesn't get as much attention).
So, right now, as I finish up my recovery, I'm just thinking...mulling things over...praying...and thinking some more. About how this next school year is going to look for me. About where I want to focus my (new-found) energy.
I have no idea if anyone will even read this...but if you used to read this blog, and wondered where I was...now you know. I'll be honest, it's been a pretty intense six months for me, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel, and am now excited to see what the future holds.
