One Sentence a Day - August 2017

Here we go... heading into Fall.
My mind is blown.
Hope Summer treated everyone wonderfully... & Fall holds all the magic that is can.

So here's my my August, the last month of 'summer', one sentence a day.

1.  Celebrated our Zoe girl's 12th birthday & then had to run out to church for a youth meeting. #Zoewouldbein7thgrade

2.  I missed my dad's phone call to tell me about storm clouds, because I was already sitting outside looking at the same clouds. #heraisedmetolovestorms

3.  Woke up to find my dad was in the ER all night long & admitted after a rupture in his colon. #dontlikewakinguptothattext

4.  Hoping the bleeding for my dad has finally stopped. #dayoffworknotforfun

5.  Got to take pictures of one of my favorites family & their new addition #familyoffour

6.  From church, to the hospital, to Bible Study, it completed my busy weekend. #nonstopgo

7.  I literally was so angry at how Rachel's season of the Bachlorette ended.  #TeamPeter

8.  When my dad was on one floor, my mom in the ER one another floor & friends show up to help in any way & pray with me, I have never been more touched in my life. #Framily

9.  Had to take dad back in to find the source of why he's still bleeding nearly a week later.  #makeitstop

10.  What day is it?  #oneweekinthehospital

11.  Dad got out of ICU & back to a regular room. #forthe2ndtime

12.  Got to support my uncle doing a 5k for Pancreatic Cancer. #WAGEHOPEALWAYS

13.  They sent dad home even though his blood count is down & he has a fever that went up to 104.7 #healthcaretoday

14. Came home to work out & fell asleep after putting on my work out clothes & napped for over an hour #workoutcanceled

15.  First time I made dinner at home in nearly 2 weeks. #homesweethome

16.  Cant take the face & gum pain any longer #sinusinfection #LittleClinicROCKS

17.   So excited to finally get my new fitness tracker but didnt feel good enough to even pull it out of the box.  #itsinspiringme

18.  Did a Friday photo session with one beautiful momma #cutestbabybump

19.  So glad it was Saturday so I could stay at home doing nothing. #stillsick

20.  Got to spend the day with Ricky which is a rarity on a Sunday #samsclubherewecome

21.  Solar Eclipse!!!! #dontlookdirectlyatit

When you dont have eclipse glasses

22.  Bye bye awful gray roots!!!! #itwasBAD

23.  Dreamed for a few minutes what it would be like to win the powerball of more than a half of a Billion. #onlyadream

24. Finally get a break from the humidity. #FallPreview

25.  Organized all my pens & pencils & markers. #somany #neverenough

26.  Tried to stay outside as much as possible with the beautiful weather. #pushedmetodoa5k

27.  Sundays are extreme for me when I leave my house at 9am & get home at 8pm. #allforJesus

28.  Couldnt figure out what to do to workout so ended up getting more miles in. #slowestmilesever

29.  It's gotta be a good sign my luck is turning when I see a rainbow ending its arch in our yard, right? #totallyamazing

30.  Our little Zoe has hurt her back leg & with her front paw being so messed up from when she was little, she's basically going on 2 legs now. #heartbreaking #tougholdgirl

31.  Finished another project & now thinking I may keep this one for a treat for myself. #treatyoself

What was the highlight of your August?

  1. What a month! You certainly kept busy. I hope your dad and momma stay healthy this month!

  2. Your hair is so pretty! Hope Dad is doing great!

  3. Whew! I had to chuckle at Aug. 14th though. Rests and naps are just as important as workouts and after the first 13 days, sounds like you needed that nap! Love that rainbow too! Pot of gold would have been just as nice as that 1/2 billion lottery winnings. ;) Here's to fall and no doctors, ERs, or clinic visits in September!

  4. definitely a tough month health wise for your dad and hope he's doing great! your hair always looks so wonderful! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. I'm so thankful that your dad was sustained by God's grace. And I love that you spent so much time soaking up those amazing last bits of summer. :)

  6. I know your month has been up and down with your dad and being sick. But you still got to take some amazing pictures, and your hair looks so pretty!!!

  7. hope your dad makes a fast and healthy recovery!

    i've had to dial back my training (bum shoulder) but anxious to get back at it (if this damn shoulder would heal faster!!)

  8. What a crazy month! I hope your Dad is recovering well! I am jealous of the nice, cool weather you're enjoying! It's been so hot here. Makes me cranky! Here's to a great September!

  9. What a hard month...I'm sure in many ways, you're glad to see it over. I hope your parents are recovering and doing better; that really is so hard. Here's hoping your September brings some good news!

  10. Hope your dad and Zoe are feeling better and that you are too. My highlight of August was spending 3 days in a row with Kerri and Colton

  11. I hope that your dad and zoe are feeling a lot better now. It can be so frustrating to go through family heath related things. You just feel so helpless, you know? :( Hoping September is better for you all! :) XO - Alexandra

  12. I hope everyone is well now! And I am so impressed by you runners. I LOVE hair color day!

  13. Glad your dad is doing better! You had a very full month! :)

  14. What a roller coaster month for you and so pleased your Dad is okay. Life is full of ups and downs and I bet you feel that as you read through your month. Have a great September and don't forget to take care of you!

  15. It's so nice to catch up with you this way, Rebecca.
    What a crazy month!

  16. Bless your heart. Both parents in the hospital at once? Thank goodness for praying friends.

    A slow mile is better than no mile. I am fighting some kind of aching in my right leg that is keeping me from wanting to do much of anything. Have never been an athlete but always a runner. Not far or fast, though. But right now, not at all. Boo!

    Both do my roots need a refresher. Come on, payday.

    Hope your family enjoys a healthy September and that life settles down a bit for you.

  17. Oh, Rebecca!

    What a difficult month you've had! Hope your parents have a better September.

    All the more reason that I love the title of your blog.

    Love how you look in your cap!!! I wish that look worked for me :).

  18. You sound like you've had a challenging month! Hope everyone is recovering now. All the best for September 😊
