The joys of living in MI

Here's the saved post that I wrote last Wednesday but didn't publish:

It's been in the 70s the last two days. By my calculations, we should get massive amounts of snow in the next two to three weeks. That's just the way Michigan works. Nonetheless, I'm going to enjoy the 50 degree weather while it lasts.

Here's what I woke up to on Thursday:

Ahhh . . . the joys of Michigan weather.

I realize it's been a while since I've written anything, but not a whole lot has changed. I have full-blown carpal tunnel syndrome, which basically means my hands fall asleep at random times throughout the day and sometimes wait hours to wake up. And I have severe wrist and hand pain in the middle of the night. On a brighter note . . . my back pain has almost completely gone away. I'm so thankful for that!

I'm feeling completely overwhelmed with the amount of school and camp stuff that I have to do. There's so much stress in getting ready for the summer, trying to write my thesis, creating a brand new website, hiring staff, keeping my house picked up, getting ready for the baby, and so much more I can't even begin to list it.

I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful husband who helps me through all of this stuff when he's got enough stress of his own. He had to make baseball cuts this week. He hates making cuts. I don't think many of his players realize that he dreads it. I think they think he enjoys it, but he didn't sleep at all the night after he had to make them. On top of that, he's had to deal with parents . . . parents who chase him down on the highway and force him to pull over to talk about why their son was cut. Parents who think Kyle has it out for their kid and are missing out great opportunities to teach their kids how to deal with disappointment. Parents who are probably just looking out for their children . . . but are ultimately embarassing their kids and making things harder for the themselves and for Kyle.

Anyway . . . moving on. Here are some of the baby shower pictures from the shower my mom threw for me:

The shower hadn't even started and I was already sick of getting my picture taken.

Needless to say . . . it was a great time!
