Mini Blog Update + Cottage Pics!

Hi all!

So, I wanted to give you guys a bit of a heads-up about what's been going on in the past couple weeks (including my absence from the interwebz).

Basically, lots of things have been happening. As I mentioned last week, I came down with strep throat and was pretty sick most of the week. Then, as I was kind of feeling better, got hit with a 101 degree fever. Still have no clue why that happened, but it put me out of commission for a couple of days. Then, I was off to Gravenhurst, Ontario for a long awaited cottage trip.

The trip as simply amazing. I got to hang with family and friends (including one I hadn't seen in a few months!), ride on Sea-Doos, relax by the water, and many other things. It was one of the best vacations I've been on in a long time! Here are a couple pictures from the trip!

Half-way through the trip, I got a phone call from my mom, telling me that some family from Ireland were coming to visit, staying at our house, and were arriving...tomorrow. My grandmother had to have surgery mid-week and they wanted to come to Canada and help out. So, by the time I returned home it was a hectic week of hospital visits, spending time with my family, and hoping and praying the surgery would go well. And it did! My grandmother is one of the most impressive people I've ever met. She is seriously underweight, but underwent open-heart surgery and was awake and talking the very next day. We were so delighted!

So, after all the sickness, vacation, family time, and hospital trips, my blog has pretty neglected recently. Only my long ago scheduled Waiting On Wednesday picks was posted. Sorry about that! I'm going to try my best to get caught up this weekend, once my family returns home. Everything seems to have calmed down, some what, so I'm taking the time to both relax, and to get caught up on everything that's been put on the back-burner!

I hope everyone has had a less stressful week! And have a happy weekend!
