I just have to tell you all what I received in the mail today! I was so excited to open up the wonderful white envelope. It was from Debra from The Bunnies Bungalow. This beautiful vintage half apron with precious poddles on it. Isn't fantastic. She was having a lovely sale in her boutique (online) and I just had to have it. Thank you so much Debra for packaging it so nicely and fast shipping.
Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but lots going on in my life at this moment.
I have a lot of stress at work at this time, where I needed to bring in my union to help me out. I have been a wreck over it. Then to find out my daddy has basal cell cancer (skin cancer) on his shoulder and it is bad (not life threatening, but will require alot of surgery and cosemtic surgery,too) and he also needs to have a bone marrow biopsy to find out why he isn't making enough red blood cells (could be life threatening). And the ones he does have are enlarged. I am freaked, but being strong for my daddy. Like he was for me when I was first diagonised with Thyroid Cancer. I really do need to find a healthy way to deal with stress...you know not your run of the mill type of stress but the stress that makes you sit on the bottom of your shower and sob till you don't even notice the water has turned stone cold. Yep, friends that is where I am!
The light at the end of the tunnel is that I got to spend some really great time with my sister today while my husband took the 2 oldest children (4 yrs and 2 1/2) and played with them upstairs. Time where my sister and I could just laugh, that laugh where you end up crying almost peeing your pants kind of laugh. At the end of it all, you both turn to each other and wonder why you started to laugh to begin with. I love my sister, not only am I blessed to have her as my sister, but she is my mentor and bestfriend and is always in my corner rooting for me!
And this is the month that I am planning my bestfriend (Adrien)and I's mystery trip. That will be fun and get my mind of life for a bit! The greatest thing about Adrien is that she is simple, uncomplicated. She takes me for whatever challenges I have. She never passes judgement and she knows me sometimes better than I know my self (as my sister does as well). She is always rooting me on, and sometimes tells me the brutal truth. But when those times happen, it is like taking a spoonful of sugar hearing it from her instead of the world. Her and I have a long history, we have known each other from highschool. Not alot of people can say that, Adrien and I have out lasted some marriages and diffently other friendships. These last troubling weeks have been mentally and phyiscally hard, but its when it gets tough when I truly find out how blessed I truly am! Without my bestfriends, Adrien and my darling sister I would have been lost.
Also, I want to thank all my blog friends for allowing me to visit and escape for a bit on YOUR blogs. I have truly loved visiting each of you and try very hard to leave comments. Thank you for sharing some of your life with me, I have enjoyed the journey.
P.S. Junie has tagged me and I will will play tomorrow and post it all here! Thanks Junie how fun! Hugs to you sweet lady!
