Checking In.

So on top of shingles, those last couple of weeks were crazy.

I have a lot of stories to tell and pictures to share and life doesn't seem to be slowing down for one millisecond, but I think the two most important things you should know are:

(A) My race is this weekend. My family and I decided to do a different race than we first talked about -- this one is actually in support of the animal shelter I worked at while I was pregnant with Tova. I'm behind on my training schedule like whoa but I've talked with my cousin and we have plans to run-walk it together. So, hopefully I can get my butt in gear for the BlogHer 5K (if they're doing it this year) and be able to run that whole thing ... and possibly start training in July for a half marathon with this lady. Kind of from afar, but that's the magic of the internet. So if you're in the area and have nothing better to do at 9AM this upcoming Saturday morning (ha!) come on out and cheer everyone along. And then eat all the foods with me afterwards.

(B) After much internal drama and strife and effort and meetings and shenaniganry that comes along with entangling yourself with government programs and whatnot, we had our final preschool placement meeting with the school district for Tova. She does not qualify for services as a special needs child, which 99% of the time means she couldn't start school in the fall. BUT, because Kyle is, well, him (he's very involved in the administrative side of things for the whole district) they're going to let her in as a typical child at three years old, which is fairly unheard of. SO, come mid-August, aside from having to transport her myself to and fro since only IEP kids get transportation, I will have roughly two hours a morning COMPLETELY BY MYSELF four days a week. I can barely fathom what that will be like. Plus, bonus for my kids getting educations and all of that. That is A LOT of stress off of my shoulders.

Kyle's first day of break was yesterday, so we're full-out on summer vacation in these parts. We have a lot going on already this month and it's only the 5th, but I'll try to check in more often. For those of you who are curious, I'm 95% over the shingles (though I'm definitely going to scar) and that was a hellacious experience if ever I've had one. I wouldn't wish shingles on my worst enemy.

That's really about it for now. I'm alive. We're all relatively well. It's summer. Hooray!

{UPDATE} Also there was pretty awesome news on the house blog front. You should probably check that out.
