I'm Back!!!!!

I'm back to the blogging world.....well, kind of! I haven't written a blog post in quite a while! Sorry! I have been off work since the end of July on medical leave due to my neck. I was told to stay off computers as it aggravated it so much! Because of that, I have not blogged! But here I am! I wrote this up and got Matt to type it for me...thanks Matt!
I guess I should recap a bit of what's been going on in the last couple of months! I guess I'll start with me going off work. I went to work the last week of July just in agony! My neck was so stiff, I could barely move! I made a doctors appointment and the decision was made to take me off work to go to physio and try and figure out what the heck is wrong with my neck! I was in a car accident when I was 18, and have been in continual pain ever since. It just got to the point where it was unbearable. I was sent for x-rays to see if there was an undetected injury from that accident. My doctor thought that there may have been a fracture that was never diagnosed.....thank goodness there wasn't! Something showed up on the x-ray....don't ask me what as I don't understand doctors lingo! Ever since, I have been going to physio to try and get better! Not too sure if it's working, though :(  There have been many mornings where Matt has to help me get out of bed cause I'm so super sore!!!  There have been days where I can't move to turn the alarm off. It's a very strange feeling to be laying in the bed, hearing the alarm blaring and knowing that you need to turn it off, but your body will not let you move! Oh well! It has to improve at some point!
Although it's a total bummer to have an injury like this, it has been nice to have some time off. I was able to enjoy the kid's summer vacation with them! I so much enjoy being a stay at home mom! I keep telling Matt that I wish this could be my life forever...minus the pain of course! We have had lazy mornings sitting together watching cartoons. We were able to spend sunny days outdoors and were able to spend some time with family! It was lovely! Since I wasn't working, we were able to spend some time in Beachwood with great friends of ours! We spent a couple of weekends out there this summer!
The kids are now back in school! It's amazing how much chaos comes with the beginning of school and all of their activities! Sports has started, PAC meetings, fundraising..the list goes on and on! It's great, though and I feel so fortunate that I get to be there for it! I have been able to drop my kids off at school every morning and pick them up at the end of the day! When I'm working, I don't have the chance to do it so I'm cherishing every moment that I can!
This past weekend, I went out with my sister and her kids and did a fun photo shoot! Since I've been off work, I've had a bit more time to get into photography which is one of my passions! We had a blast doing it! I would love to maybe one day do photography on a more regular basis...

Thanks to all of you who still follow my blog! I hope to get back at it regularly very soon! I'll leave you with some pics of the fun photo shoot that I did with my sister! Thanks Jodi!
