Moving forward. (Yes, forward!)

Making lemonade out of lemons is, in general, one of my specialties! But, I was REALLY tested over the past month on my lemonade-making skills. And I REALLY didn't get it right every time. Some days, it was just waaay too sour. (Understandably so, of course—I was pretty much terrified out of my skin for a couple of weeks there, and I had a right to be). There were days when I didn't feel like I was getting better, when I felt like I was getting worse... (and some of that time, I was). Besides the physical pain, I was just so frustrated by the state of helplessness I was in. I felt alone on a raft with no compass a lot. Not a good feeling. At all.


I have some GREAT friends and family who really showed up for me. They cheerfully drove me to my appointments and helped me get daily essentials and called and texted and emailed on the regular. Even when I didn't feel like talking. Which in hindsight, considering my state of mind, was probably a very good thing! 
Last week, the tides turned.  I have slowly been improving since then, and I could not be more thrilled / relieved / happy / ecstatic about it. I'm on the upswing... FINALLY. YES!

We are also... TA-DA—Moving!
We've been in the process for awhile (quite awhile). But NOW, it's FOR REALS. This weekend, we will be IN the new place. I know what you're probably wondering. HOW on EARTH did all this packing and planning happen, what with me sick in bed for the past month?? Well, I am wondering the same thing. One word: Matt. Seriously, he's better than Lance Burton. And no,  I'm not really even sure how he managed to get it all done. I'm just... grateful. Grateful. And LUCKY.  :D
