Being away from blogging, makes me itch with anxiousness. It’s not like I have an addiction or anything, but if I’m away too long I get stressed that I won’t get caught up with everything that’s going on in Blogland.
But truth be told, there have just been more important things going on around these neck of the woods lately. For one, I’m still trying to put together our new home. Little by little, it’s coming together. It frustrates me that it’s not complete, but I have to remember to be patient.
B started his third year of med school, which entails working 12+ hours at the hospital 5-6 days a week! Can I get an omigawd! I’m actually handling it a lot better than I thought I would. And I thank therapy for that. If it weren’t for everything I’ve learned in the lasts several months, I’m not sure I’d be able to handle this life change so gracefully and calmly.
& of course, the single-most important event currently going on in my life, is that my mama started chemotherapy for breast cancer yesterday. It makes end tables, lamps, and hanging picture frames seem so petty and unimportant. Because the truth of the matter is, nothing else is more important right now. At nearly 8 o’clock Monday night, Emmy & I hopped in the car to surprise my mom with Godiva dark chocolate truffles, a musical card, and a breast cancer awareness bead for her Pandora bracelet.
With everything that’s been going on, there’s so much going through my mind. So much I want to write, document, & share. But for now, there’s a precious angel baby waking up from her nap. & I know that when I open her door, she’ll be greeting me with her gorgeous gummy smile. & I’ll have to scoop down and pick up my heart that just melted all over the carpeted floor.
