All is well

I'm home (back in Jersey).
I was absolutely, wholeheartedly touched by all the sweet words, prayers, thoughts and good vibes sent to my family. We felt it 100%. THANK Y'ALL. My dad (who is actually my step dad but has been my 'dad' since I was 9) went home from the hospital last Thursday and was watering the grass as soon as he got home (I snuck a picture of him doing so from the guest bedroom)! The doctors said he made a super speedy recovery and should go back to his normal routine, so he did just that. I credit all your prayers for his wellness. The circumstances for me to go home were pretty lame, but it was wonderful to (finally) meet my niece Makaila and of course spend some time with the ever-so-quickly-growing Nathaniel.
The proudest auntie ever. 
I got to spend a lot of alone/quality time with my mommy and see my brother and sister everyday. Of course the whole family got together at Grandpa's and had a big dinner, so I also ate lots of foods I can't get in Jersey. Though highly stressful at times, the trip ended up being joyous as well...and then I got sick while in town and flew home yesterday with a sinus headache which in turn gave me an extreme earache when the Captain said we had to fly even higher to avoid turbulence. Today, I can hardly hear - it feels as though I'm wearing ear plugs - and it feels like I'll never stop blowing my nose, but I can't wait to get back into my own normal routine. Lots of school work to catch up on and of course, plan for my friend Andy (whom I haven't seen in 4 years) and his newborn son to stay with us on Thursday! I'm convinced my life just doesn't have the time to slow down...at least I get to see one of my old friends and meet a new baby! :)

Lots o' love,
Roni

P.s. I can't wait to catch up on y'alls blogs, too! Y'all know I always miss them.
