inhale, exhale repeat...

This week past was so overwhelming, I kept on forgetting that I need to breathe.
Caring for someone who is sick really took a lot out of me but today I am happy to report, my daughter is starting to feel like her old self again and is back at her apartment and back to work. Yipee!

{BREATHE}

I have some other good news to share...
Hubby and I just purchased a house!
We had been looking for a house on and off for a few years now, and when we were least expecting it, we found the perfect house in our price range, in the neighborhood we love. I wanted to blab this exciting news days ago but became so preoccupied with my poor sick girl, that I had put the news in the back of my mind 'till today.
- I'm going to be looking for lots of help with decorating ideas from you all over the next few weeks.
Will you help?
I'm soooo, soooo excited!!!

hmmmmm... that felt great; I should try that again...

Hubby and I have this week off, which will most likely be spent cleaning and preparing this house for showing perspective tenants. I'm sure I will be frazzled and stressing by the end of the week - usually this happens because I have horribly underestimated a task. I suppose I should be making a list to prioritize the things that need to be done to this place, but I am so distracted by the idea of my new place.

...wait for it...

This is truly very good news Jackie. I am so happy for your daughter and you deserve this new house. I won't be back for a while but will check up on your blog. (my ex is back to his old self which means court again (I need my insurance due to some health problems.) I'll explain it further in a private e-mail.
Wish me luck
