|Grandson Peter (almost 4mo) with Opa|
Hello everyone! I promised a friend of mine that I AM coming back, and here I am! I did say "mid-September" and it's the 17th so not bad, eh?! :)
Did you have a good summer? I did - busy but good. We still have foster baby #2 and it's been great to have a little one in the house. Plus our grandson - who is growing like a weed, seriously, he is!
We had two summertime holidays plus a few days at the beach - weather-wise we had an odd summer with hot, hot weather then plummeting temperatures ... never sure how to dress and usually whatever I've chosen is the wrong thing, i.e. not warm enough, too hot.
Health-wise I've been okay but not the best - had two more kidney stone attacks and didn't pass any stones (that I know of). I think it's something to do with my higher-protein diet but my doctor says no. I've been told to "keep them (the stones) floating" which is my strategy -- drink, drink, and drink some more (water). I've been eating less protein and I think it helps, but not positive. Anyone have any personal kidney stone stories/pointers/advice? I've read all the internet advice already...

My weight - I'm happy to say - is down 4 lbs. Nothing significant but I'm pleased. Despite the silly kidneys and having a few more obstacles (baby) to getting my exercise in - I'm doing well.
Let me know how you're doing and I hope to be back again soon! My goal is blogging here at least once per week.
