This might be a two post kind of day, partly because I'm working from home and partly because I have something else to write about (and I don't want to taint my "weekend update" post with what else is on my mind).
My first acupuncture session was Saturday morning. She spent about 20 minutes going over my paperwork and my health history before we officially got started. I wasn't nervous at all and, just as I suspected, it didn't hurt. The one needle she placed at the top of my head was a little sore at times, but not painful. It was a very relaxing experience. After about 10 minutes on the table, I almost couldn't feel my body. I will be doing this every Saturday and I will also be taking Chinese herbs. I'm not going to lie: the herbs are nasty. I definitely can't take them with water. So far, orange juice seems to be the only thing that masks the taste and I still have to shoot it as if I'm shooting tequila. I hope that these things treat me better than tequila. Yuck.
Saturday, Joey and his dad painted bedroom #2. We still have bedroom #3, the guest bath, and the hallway to complete. I think, aside from a few minor decorative things, the downstairs is complete enough for me to share before and after pictures. So without further ado, here are the photos I've been promising for almost a month:
Finally, the highlight of my weekend was making a decision about adding to our family. This is something Joey and I have been talking about for a while, and it looks like things may finally be coming together. We are ready to share that we are "home visit approved" and on the waiting list to adopt . . .
That's right. Our family of two may soon become a family of four. Unfortunately, that's all I can write about it at the moment since nothing is in stone. I can tell you they are from a dog rescue, they are brother and sister miniature dachshunds, and we love them. We are trying not to get our hopes up, but we really hope they are able to come home with us.
It ended on an interesting note (more on this in a later post), but, overall, it was a good weekend.
