Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?


The sound of pure joy…

It is 9:44 pm, my daughter (16 months) is still squealing with joy…and I am so very grateful.  She’s been so quiet and solemn for so long…I wondered if I would ever hear this.    I cannot even begin to describe what I’m feeling today.

Today, she’s been squealing, she smiled all day, she’s started picking up her cup and drinking out of it.  The progress that she’s made since she started her injections is UNBELIEVABLE.  I am so grateful for medical science.

I could listen to those squeals forever…   🙂

The new house, moving, sick with a cold blues…

Ok – not so blue really.  I think I’m on the upswing from the cold, despite a lingering cough.  Yes, we did just fill the space we made yesterday with more boxes, but that’s the last of the stuff from storage.  Now when we empty a box and create space, it will remain free!  Yay!

We also found the linens – that’s helpful.  I’m tired of taking sheets off the bed to wash and put right back on – same thing with towels!

I think our children are also recovering rapidly now – that is terrific from a temperment point of view.  There’s nothing quite like a sick three year old!

All in all, I think this week coming up should be a good one: busy and full of tiring work unpacking, but fulfilling as we get comfortable with new home and new routines.  It is incredible to have some quiet and privacy again!
