The end of the year is here, and it feels as surreal as the end of last year. And the year before that. And so on. Time is flying by. Here’s a little of what’s been happening in our world lately:
- I am still training for my half marathon (which I completed fundraising for last month . . . hooray!). I run my last organized race this weekend, a 10k, before the half at the end of February. I’m not too focused on time right now. I figure that will come later, with more experience. I mostly just want to finish. And yes — I do plan to continue running after this half. It’s been motivating and therapeutic for me.
- K was evaluated for sensory processing issues. We still haven’t received the full evaluation report back, but several conversations with the OT have given us plenty to think about and work on as we wait to see what kind of treatment K may (or may not) need. It sounds like the issues she’s facing aren’t going to be too difficult to manage, and I’m thankful for her new school/teachers who spotted some red flags early on.
- We moved into our new house. We closed at the end of October, but we didn’t officially take residence until last week since the sellers rented back from us for a month. We started moving in some items on Thursday night, and as of this morning, we had zero boxes left to unpack. Hooray! But we still have plenty of organizing to do. We also have fun home projects ahead: redoing the fence, painting, floors, and — at some point — upgrading the kitchen and bathrooms.
And last, but not least:
- My boobs are causing issues again. The day before Thanksgiving, I found a lump in my right breast during my routine self exam. Thankfully, my specialist was able to get me in the following week for an ultrasound. It looks like a complex cyst, and it’s formed a thick barrier that left my doctor unable to biopsy and/or aspirate with a needle. So, I head back in April for another scan. More watch and wait. I should be used to this by now, right?!
All of these things have left blogging to the back burner, but I hope as the new year arrives, I’ll have more time to sit down and write. Or at least post pictures of the new place. Come on, 2015. Be less crazy for me, will you?
