Life Update: August

August has been pretty low-key and hermit-y for us.

Will has been working long and hard hours (as usual), including more and more last-minute weekend shifts (unscheduled). He had an unexpected little TDY. It was only 4 days, but it was torture because we were woken up on the day he left with a phone call. The gist of it was: "Pack a bag and get to the squadron as soon as you can." It was so unexpected that no one knew exactly where he was going or for how long. At first it started out as a possible overnight trip...then two days...wait three...okay four, no seriously this time four. Each update an extra day was tacked on for one reason or another.

Will: "Can we go? How many pictures are you going to take?"
Ech: "Shut up and smile."

I finally know the meaning behind the #sherlocked and I feel so cool for it. I've been told over and over again that I'd love Sherlock since I love Doctor Who. I've been putting off watching it though. Not because I didn't think I'd like it, more because I knew I'd be obsessed and wouldn't be able to stop. I was waiting for Will to go on TDY, but I caved now because of Will's current work schedule. He's only around to sleep so I needed to indulge in a new show obsession.


In family news, Leetle is a swim champ. She got 7 ribbons in the 7 events she swam. 4 1st place, 2 2nd place, and 1 3rd place. She posted qualifying times for 3 of the events which means she's qualified to enter state championship meets. I'm so proud of her!

And Beebee just turned 8. 8!!! How can she be 8 already? (How can I be 28 already? Ugh!)

As I was writing this post, I got my latest test results back. (For those of you don't know, I have cervical dysplasia) I was expecting the usual "Come back in for a colposcopy". But this time I got all good news. The tests came back normal! The last time this happened, I had to repeat the tests because the margins (or something) were too iffy to be conclusive and it turned out it wasn't normal. But this time I don't need to come back until next year for repeat testing! Yesss!

  1. I am out of the loop because I haven't watched Doctor Who or Sherlock. I might have to try to watch them.

  4. You should! Doctor Who was rough at the start for me. I had to force myself through a few episodes before I fell in love. Sherlock had me hooked immediately.

  5. Thanks! It's definitely a relief to take a break from tests, more tests, and annoying procedures.

  7. It seriously took you this long to get around to watching Sherlock? You've been missing out on all the pain of suspense! And so glad to hear that you got some good news on the medical front!

  8. I know! I'm almost done with the 3rd season. I'm going to die when I catch up and have to wait forever for the 4th.

  10. Thanks! If you decide to start watching, I suggest waiting for a time when you can binge watch because it's hard to stop. At the beginning, I had to force my husband to watch Doctor Who...now he's putting it on everyday after work and staying up way too late because he hates stopping.
