Okay I admit it! I'm a slacker. But I do have a slightly good reason, other than being a busy mom of two little ones. I did finally find out why I was feeling so tired and cruddy all the time, and why I had lost 35 pounds after having Beck. Turns out the little stinker took all my iron reserves during the pregnancy. With the bleeding so badly during the labor and after giving birth, this experience left me with an iron level of 6 and a normal level is between 12-15. I also had a hemoglobin level of 8.2. Anything below 8 requires a blood transfusion. So after 8 months, I finally found out why I felt so yucky. To correct this, I went and got weekly iron IV's for a month sitting next to all the people who were getting chemo. I'll just say, I was glad I was only getting iron being I was the most lively person in the room. Another excuse why I have not blogged in so long is I have been working on a quiet book for Regan and finally got it done. With that, and being under the weather, and the always present headaches, just everyday chores led me to allow blogging to take a back seat - sorry. But the big news is....we finally got our transfer. Yeah !!!!!! So Caleb's new office will be in Fairfield, California and we hope to be buying a house in Yuba City. Hopefully Caleb can transfer to a closer office to Yuba city within the next 6 months after he transfers. Caleb reports to Fairfield September 1st. We are so excited to be moving closer to family and friends. Here are some pictures from the past 8 months. I know it has been way to long, but it's better than nothing right?
