You know it's been awhile since you put up a blog post when your brother-in-law texts you complaining about your interwebby absence.
Sorry for the quiet, Ryan... usually you would enjoy me shutting up for a bit. :)
I've just been a bit emotionally lazy. I have wanted to post... but when I started to think about it, it just made me tired. I knew if I sat down I would want to tell you about how I am... and that makes me tired.
And, quite frankly, I am getting a little tired of always talking about me and what we are going through and how we are feeling.
It's emotionally draining.
So, I'm gonna tell you we are OK, trying to live one day at a time and enjoying our time together.
and then I'm going to talk about nothing of import.
(I'm currently reading a Sherlock Holmes novel, hence the wordage.)
I have been lazy about posting... but I have done some home-improvement type projects. I took ample pics, so I won't be stingy... I'll share.
I have this fun little wall that juts out about 2 inches just above my fireplace. It makes it the perfect place for a small accent. When we first moved in, 7 years ago, I painted it chocolate brown. It has stayed that color for almost 7 years. Last week I decided it was time to change it. We already had all the paint and all the tools, so this was to be a free project... making it even more fabulous.
Well... I did buy frog tape, which I fell in love with and could go on and on about right now... I will spare you, but if you are ever going to paint anything ever, ever again... BUY THE FROG TAPE!!!!
Then I sat and looked at it for 3 days in it's new and delightful shade of happiness... and decided it needed more... I needed more.
I decided on white chevron.
Bold, I know... but I am nothing if not bold and daring.
So with the Captain gone... and the boys out of the house, I went to work.
Math and I are not friends. Not even acquaintances...
Because it's awesome.
Also, we have this TV cabinet. It's as
old young as our marriage, so...8 and a half years. It was WOBBLY. The Captain was scared that it was going to come crashing down on the kids because they are always climbing on it when I'm not looking. My response of "serves 'em right" was not good enough for him. Because we are not in the position to buy a new TV cabinet, I called in my dad to help me. He came over and helped me re enforce the back, and because the cheap back was coming off I took it out and replaced it with some fun fabric. Now when you open it, it's not so jank... and it is not a hazard to our offspring anymore either.
The Captain finished his radiation this week. He is now home for good.
I love looking over seeing his face. I love that the boys have their Daddy back all the time now.
I am thrilled that Andy can start to recover a bit, get his energy back up... start to heal.
