I’ve been feeling really great. The vacay helped me to relax and I’m feeling super excited and just all around good. Since we’ve been back, we got the trim caulked and putty’d and last night we did another coat of paint on the trim and on one of the doors. Tonight, we’re going to do the second coat on the walls… AND THEN… we get to move onto furniture and chandelier installation!! Could anything be better? Marky is going to start the chandelier on Saturday and maybe during that time I’ll either work on getting more dang paint on the doors or I could build something small… like the changing table topper. Oy. The room is going to be WAY different come Sunday night. I just can’t even contain my excitement.
Also, it must be mentioned that my superstar momma is back at home now. She was in the hospital since the 17th due to her second total knee replacement. I saw her in the hospital when I got back and again yesterday and she’s doing REALLY well. Way better than last time. Her surgery happened to be scheduled after we booked our trip, and unfortunately, it was while we were away. For her last knee surgery, I stayed at the hospital all day with my dad, but this time, I was in another country. Needless to say, I was feeling pretty guilty and worried about her. In fact, so much so that I literally BURST into sobbing tears during lunch with my hubs. Any amount of crying in a restaurant seems to cause a scene, but I will confirm that when on vacation, in a happy, all-inclusive resort, crying is even more out of sorts.
Also, in my absence, my sweet Mother-in-Law (Milly) sat with my dad while my mom was in surgery. Knowing that she was there with him was SUCH a comfort and, such a reminder of how lucky I am to have such an amazing support system in place. I couldn’t be more grateful for my born-into-family and my married-into-family.
