A New Beginning
The first of the month always feels like a bit of a fresh start, but this month in particular. Not only are we living in a new house, but we bought new furniture (hurray!!) that is being delivered tomorrow. I started off the month with chemo, and this month begins my favorite holiday seasons: Thanksgiving and Christmas. They are my favorite because they just scream family togetherness, and I adore my family.
I'm on the hunt for a beautiful 8x10 area rug for the living room. The colors in my house are gray (and I'm using teal and orange accents - does that sound weird? I promise it's not.); I'm looking for very muted tons in the rugs because the pops of color are going to come from the pillows and wall accents. Ideas? I'm finding that the perfect rug is hard to find. Oh, and it can't cost $$$. I recently read an article that said you should pay as much for your rug as your sofa. Not. Gonna. Happen.
I haven't had the camera out much, but I have snapped a few pictures. I'll pull out iphone pictures soon. And don't expect any house decorating pictures just yet. Packing boxes has taken all our energy so far!
As if she could get any cuter . . . then she goes and does.
Rory was Rapunzel for Halloween. Her favorite movie is Tangled (she's finally switched from calling it Tangles LOL). She begged for the wig, and then decided she was terrified of it after it arrived. I bribed her with make-up, and my mom braided it for her.
And then I pulled out the big guns - temporary eyeliner tattoos. She thought she was stylin'. Brian hated them. ;)
Camden decided last minute he wanted to be Harry Potter so we combined a couple of capes, added a lightning scar, pulled out a twig from the backyard for a wand, kept his own messy black hair and glasses and voila.
And our first family picture at the new house!
Hoping to get back to a regular blogging schedule soon. I've missed reading your blogs, commenting on them, reading your comments, etc. Feels like I've missed out on friends, and isn't that just an amazing thing about an online community?
By the way, my CA125 was an 8 this week (up from 7 last month, but the doctor said that 1 point is not a gain so we'll take it!).
