Bloggy Break

Sorry for my unexpected Bloggy Break, it was unintentional but sometimes that happens.  I have been extremely busy at work and at home and sometimes I just don't get the time to write.  I've also been entrenched in the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy and am currently on the last book.  Oh, so good!
We were away on vacation last week, a real one week vacation!  We headed South to Disney with Michelle and Shawn, the kids and Shawn's parents and sister.  I will be back with lots of pictures to post as soon as I have a chance to go through the 600+ photos that I took and the 700+ that Shawn shot.  Ha!  Could take a bit of time.

In other news, lots of changes going on at work.  Not changes that are totally positive and welcome, but changes none the less.  And after being gone for a week I have a lot of catching up to do.  It never ends!
I am truly swamped and scrambling to get in some kind of a rhythm.  (How many years 'till retirement?)
Yesterday was my first day back and I had to leave after only half a day to make one of my treks down to Johns Hopkins for an appointment, this time with my cardiologist.  He is a specialist in heart conditions that are associated with Myotinic Dystrophy.  My appointment was at 1:00, but since I had to be there at 12:30 I had to leave the office at 11:30 in order to get there in time.  I left the Outpatient Center at 3:10, after my exam, an EKG and having a Holter Monitor strapped and taped to my chest.  I have to wear the monitor for 24 hours and then send it back to them for the results to be read.  Can't wait to get the thing off me though as the tape and leads are pretty uncomfortable, not to mention the fact that I look like a science experiment!

Hopefully I will be back later today or tomorrow with pictures and a round up of our vacation.  Oh, and Bella had some big news the week before last.  She had an eye appointment because she had been squinting a lot and she now is sporting glasses!  She only has to wear them for distances, but she loves them and the problem is going to be to keep her from wearing them all the time.  And much to my surprise, she got her hair cut donating 12" of her long lovely tresses to Locks of Love.
