dear friday: i love you

Thank you all so much for the kind comments on my last post. The longer we wait, the harder it gets. But it's nice to know that there are still people hanging with us while we wait. I appreciate the love and support, and I know that Joey does, too.


It's Friday, which means I made it through my first week back at work after surgery. I'm so glad it's over. I'm still feeling pretty well overall. My only complaint is the sinus pressure. It moves around to different spots in my head, but it's constant. I'm not allowed to take any Advil or Tylenol until next Wednesday because of potential bleeding complications, so I have to suffer through the pain. Putting a heating pad on the back of my head/neck helps, as well as the heat from showers and the nasal rinses (which feel SO weird). Everyone who has gone through the surgery keeps telling me that it will go away for good in a couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to it!


Now that I'm out of school, I have a ton of free time. So I'm gearing up to start and/or finish a couple of projects, including backing up all of my blog posts, moving my blog to Wordpress, and finishing at least one of the two books I'm working on. I'd also love to take a few basic photography and web design classes. I need to stay busy. For the last year and a half, it's homework that's kept me occupied. Now something else needs to fill my time, for fear of going completely insane on this wait. I already finished the entire 50 Shades series in less than a week. At this rate, if I don't find anything else to do, I'll be glued to books until we get the call. (Not that this is a bad thing, but variety would be nice.)


This week's featured item on our Etsy page is this gorgeous red wreath, donated by Laurie at The hoot hoot shop. Laurie has been one of my biggest cheerleaders on Twitter, and I can't thank her enough for donating her amazing work to help raise money for our adoption fund.

Please consider purchasing a craft or donating an item to be purchased. 100% of the proceeds go into our adoption account. I also want to thank my friend, Helen, for her donation last week. I'm so lucky to have such amazing friends!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

After I graduated I just ate up books to fill up my spare time, it was so weird (but NICE!) not to have homework to do. I also rekindled my love of video games though, lol.

I'm glad you feel okay overall, hope you feel 100% in no time.
