Journal - March 9, 2009 (Monday) Day +240by Sheri Nocelli on 06/14/13
Well, spring is almost here! Or so I thought so until we got blasted with that snow storm last week! What a pain the snow was, we have nowhere to put it when it comes like that. But Lucien got out there and shoveled like a mad man and all was well. He even found a few minutes to make himself an igloo! Luciana wasn't too thrilled with it, but she's hard to please : )
I was supposed to go to the doctor last Monday but got canceled because of the snow. So I went today. I couldn't believe I dropped another 5 pounds, which actually they are starting to wonder why I'm still losing so much weight, so I guess we'll have to keep an eye on that. My blood results looked good from three weeks ago, and I haven't gotten any phone calls about today's results, so that usually means things are good. The doctor did say I was doing great, and to keep up the good work, which is what I always want to hear. We're not going to lower the Prograf again just yet, he wants to lower it really slowly, which is fine. Whatever is the safest way to go, I'm good with.
This weekend was warm enough that we were able to get the little ones outside for a little while. It was perfect; there was no sun so it was safe for me to be out without searching for shade. We got the kids bikes out and let them go up and down the driveway. Luciana will be 2 in May and this was the first time she's ever gotten on a bike. Actually, this was the first time in about 4 years that Adrian rode a bike too. It was so amazing to see their little faces having so much fun. Of course, we were very overly protective of them and hovering over them because it is so unsafe back there in our pavement jungle. As mostly everyone knows by now, my ultimate dream is to get grass back there for them to be safe and enjoy the outdoors. It's not fair that they missed a whole year of outside, and summer and all those simple things that children should enjoy. I'm determined to make it happen for them, to give them a safe place to run around and learn and grow in. They need that in their childhood.
I hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying this warm weather. Spring is almost here, and I think it is the most promising season, a season of new beginnings, of hope and of living life to the fullest!
