I am a stay-at-home mom to 2 children, Ryan and Alexa. My husband and I are high school sweethearts who have been through college, medical school, residency, and fellowship together. He just started his practice in orthopaedic spine surgery in our home town.

So I don't feel too overwhelmed trying to catch up on everything that has been going on during my absence, I will just give a short overview. I am really excited to catch up on everyone's blog. I missed you all and missed reading about all that's going on with your families. Thanks for the sweet notes and comments. I know it sounds trite, but it made me feel so good to know that people were thinking of me.

*Mother's Day- Jim got up with the kids and I was able to sleep in. So fantastic! The kids (and Jim) gave me a day trip to the spa. What's great about it is that I can use it all at once or split up the 4 treatments. Very excited! We went to church and then my parents and Jim's dad and stepmom came over for barbeque. Please keep Jim's dad in your prayers. He had a kidney transplant last fall and has had a rough go of it. The doctors have decided to put him back on the transplant list and remove the dead kidney. He is now undergoing dialysis. Not much fun!

*Ryan had a end of the year program at his school. His class did such a great job! I really love this age. He just cracks me up on a daily basis.

*Donna sent me a sweet note that brightened my day. Thanks for thinking of me!

*We are getting a new couch on Thursday. I will post pictures later.

*The kids and I, with my mom, are going to Omaha on Thursday afternoon to see my sister. We are going to go to the zoo, do a little shopping, and eat at P.F. Chang's. Can't wait!

*I have been OK'ed to do some walking on the treadmill and hopefully by the end of next week, some short distance running. I never knew what an ordeal this would be, but I know things could be worse.

I am looking forward to keeping up with my blog and keeping up with yours as well. Hope everyone is well and looking forward to the beginning of summer. Take care!!

I've always wished for a spa treatment for a gift but it's such a splurge that I can never actually WISH for it. I'm so glad you were indulged!

I'm glad you got the O.K. for walking. Take care of yourself!

Woohoo on the running! Just don't overdo it (like I tend to do) and keep healthy. Sounds like you have been having a wonderufl month. Wouldn't you rather be out having fun than having time to post about it? Good luck to Jim's dad. Good luck to him and I hope he gets a transplant soon.
