PHEW! Things have been so busy lately. I know, I am terribly overdue for an update. I returned to work a few weeks back and that took way more energy than I thought it would. So, many naps have been had or wanted. Sigh… naps. Oh yes, onward we go.
My Mom-in-law’s healing has been up and down. She had to go back to the hospital for a couple minor surgical procedures, then back to transitional care, finally, surprise, home. That last bit was decided by her insurance… or should that be devised by her insurance. Anyways, she came home today but now for radiation for the next thirty-three days to start. Poor Mom-in-law!
Things about the home are in total disarray. I am pushing hubby to get this house in order or some semblance of it. I may not have told you all how back in November I moved my thirteen year old couch to the garage, errr man cave. After a month my hubby decided to start having friends over after the New Year to do man things in his new cave. That’s when my plan began to soundly begin to come to fruition. You see, I have wanted a new couch and with his buddies come their wives and where would they be sitting? Surely not the man zone! So, I explained that for this to work, I would need a new couch for inside, and not just any couch. Oh no, I wanted one just like my Mom’s extra couch in the living room. He agreed and I was anxiously awaiting the tax return time for the couch buying to begin. Sounds great, right? And that is when the Universe put my butt in the hospital and all tax monies went to pay my parents back for bailing us out during the whole time I was off work healing. Now, my Mother knew of the plan on getting this couch and decided to talk with Dad about it. To my surprise, they called to let us know we could have her almost brand new couch that reclines! Why this long diatribe about the couch? I am getting to that. So, I have been pushing hubby to make room in the house and am using the couch as an excuse to further rearrange the rooms, start organizing and putting away. He does it reluctantly but he is ever so slowly starting. Maybe with more pushing I can get my craft room… hmmmm.
Any who, that is why I have been absent these past few weeks. Please don’t think I have just forgotten. I am usually just too tired or frazzled from all that has been going on. In fact, I have really missed being able to blog. I have also been missing my sister a lot. It is so much harder having her in Texas instead of just down the street a few houses. It makes popping in impossible for this Ohio girl. Perhaps we will be able to do that once again.
My sister, Teresa, and I back in mid-December.
So what have been doing? What do you wish you had more time for? Who do you miss?
P.S. please excuse the poor photo. I took it with my tablet.
