Playing Catch Up

Hey Friends!  Sorry to be away for so long, this brief absence definitely was not planned but just kind of happened.  I'll do my best to make this a quick summary of everything over the past week or so and then get back to blogging...I've missed you guys!

On Friday, Jennifer shared this quick & easy DIY Faux Concrete Planter project over on her blog.

Please continue to send your thoughts and prayers to Jennifer & her family!  They had their baby girl last week!!!

THE KITCHEN IS DONE!!!! heard it!  On Tuesday we had our contractor in to hang our cabinet doors and do (what we hope is the last) of the drywall fixes that occurred after we had a leaky roof for the second time nearly a year ago!  I still need to do something styling and paint touch ups but we could not be happier with the kitchen.

Chris' aunt came in from Germany Tuesday night so we drove down to visit with her but her flight ended up being!

Wednesday was normal but I started getting a cough which I thought was allergies or something.

Thursday I stayed home from cough was not allergies.  The contractor came back to do some sanding on the drywall and to fix a handle in the kitchen (somehow a screw broke within 24 hours).  I went to the doc only to be told I hadn't been sick enough for long enough and she sent me home...insert confused face here.

Friday was hell.  Went to Urgent Care instead of our family doc and finally got drugs!  I'll spare you all the details but I'm so happy to be off the couch and back to normal(ish) today!  Sunday was a day for disinfecting & lots of laundry (w/Chris' help since I'm still getting winded easily).

As cheesy as this may sound, after this past week I'm so very thankful for my health.  It's weird how normal can feel so great, which only goes to prove how much we can take for granted.  Life is good!

Happy Monday Friends!
