Still Counting

Monday morning again and still counting my way to 1000 Gifts. It's been a roller coaster week, starting physical therapy amidst a puddle of hormones, and not realizing just how much it was going to actually hurt but forging through anyway and turning the corner to come out on the other side...Really starting to miss Bill and wishing this was all over. Bug finally back on track and being his good sweet self at school (I know Ms. Lutz must be thankful!) Enjoying lots of good company with friends this week and our boys finishing up their bowling season at the top of the league and looking forward to Roll Offs next weekend--way to go!!!
