It's been a minute...how are y'all?
Let's sum up the last two weeks of May, which has been CRAZY busy, as usual. It seems like a dark cloud was hanging over my head this month (car accident, court date, illness, teeth issues) and I haven't felt like recapping here. It's not you, it's May. But let's focus on the mostly good, mostly important things that have been going on at Casa Martin...
Mother's Day was a rainy, yucky day so I didn't get my annual outdoor photo of the kids. But! It was the first Mother's Day that they all chipped in and bought me an actual present. They got me my favorite perfume since I had run out. We all went out to breakfast and later I shopped at Marshall's all by myself, it was lovely.
Phil and I were able to sneak away to Boston for a 24 hour anniversary getaway. On the days leading up to it, Phil was sounding very stuffy and I kept asking him if he was getting sick. I'm a complete germaphobe and I didn't want to risk catching anything from him. Not wanting to postpone the planned getaway, he kept saying he felt fine, that it was just allergies. So we went to Boston and had a great time. He finally got sick the next day. Cough, cold, feeling lousy. Instead of being sympathetic, I was just upset that he had exposed me to his germs. (This is why I could never work in the medical field!) Wouldn't you know it, I came down with the same thing on Tuesday. I hate being sick!! It means I can't workout and all I want to do is sleep. What a waste of what could be productive days. OK, I'm over it now. Germs happen. I can't get mad. Do you hear that, future Colleen? Let's focus on the happy times:
