This past week hasn’t been an easy one, health-wise, but I will say it has been an AMAZING week at HOME! So thankful that this past week did not entail anymore hospital stays, and just a follow up in Ann Arbor. God sure has been gracious and gave us a bit of a break from it all and hopefully that break is a LONG one!
I laid pretty low this past week and thanks to all of our amazing support, I didn’t have to do much cooking and Mazy was well loved! Hoping for an uneventful next week, but if there is anything I have learned in all of this, it’s the fact that I am not the holder of time, so I try to live life a day at a time. It’s hard for this hardcore planner (which I still am to some extent), but I now preface plans with “depending on how my heart is…” A bit of a change for me, but it’s been a good change. It truly makes me live each day by faith, and not by sight!
So…here’s what our past week has looked like:
Dan was going to make Mazy a shake, and when he turned around, he found this cutie dying for a taste! Don’t worry, we do not let this happen on a daily basis and don’t worry, we will never serve you ice cream that has been licked first!
Mazy had a successful day fishing at our friend’s place!
This girl could fish all day! And indeed, she caught some on her own, and reeled them in, on her own! Btw, if you’ve never fished with hot dog pieces – give it a try! You’ll provide dinner for your fam!
And this is just how life’s supposed to be! Relaxing after getting home from the hospital! Oh the joy my heart felt hanging out with crazy Mazy this week!
We had an AMAZING visit from friends who live in Minnesota! I think we could’ve spent days catching up!
It was a great pool-weather week (until the weekend)…and Mazy decided she needed flippers on all of her limbs.
Mazy likes to do hair, so here she is combing daddy’s hair. And for the record, she DOES have shorts on!
Someone got a hold of my phone when I wasn’t looking…I love scrolling through my pictures every week and happening upon these surprises! They almost make me giggle!
We are Dutch, so why not live like the Dutch? Mazy thought daddy needed to wear his Dutch shoes…
Dan and I got a chuckle out of this “commuter” in Ann Arbor! He was all dressed up, had a backpack and helmet on, skateboarding probably to work. Why not, eh?
Roasting “smarshmellows” by the fire!
This week I will hopefully hear the results of my holter monitor, but it may be next week. I plan to get a blood draw or two, but hey, the ladies know Mazy and me very well there, so it’s no biggie! It’s like going “home” at times, in a strange way! And of course, hoping for an uneventful week!
