I never thought...

Cancer has changed my life in many ways. I have now experienced things I never would have guess I would! Things like giving your own kid shots. Holding down your 4 year old as she screams during a dressing change. Sleeping in a chair bed for weeks at a time. Kissing my 2 year old goodbye and telling her I'll see her soon, but not actually knowing when it will be. Going a month without seeing my husband. And many more...

Today I add to the list: Signing closing documents at the hospital. That's right folks, Josh and I signed today and if all goes well tomorrow we will be through with the nightmare of selling our house in Colorado. It has been a burden, to say the least, for the past 2 years but the last 5 months it has been insignificant compared to other stressors in our life. But let me just say that finally getting rid of it gives me a little push of momentum to keep going through this tough week, and the next several months. I feel like doing a happy dance to celebrate but I don't want to jinx myself. When I get word tomorrow that it is a done deal, I'll probably cry and then offer a prayer of thanks. Goodbye house in CO. I was good to you, and you were good to me while I lived there. I hope your new owners enjoy you as much as I did. Oh, who am I kidding? At this point, I'm just glad to move on!

I hear you (except for the house part ;-) I feel like you are one of the few people who knows what I am going through now. And we haven't even met each other :)) You and Annabella are always in my thoughts and prayers nowadays. Hope Annabella is doing better now. I've been worried about you guys after reading your last post. Urggg....I hate Ewing's!!!

So happy to hear that the papers made it to you. One trial behind you now. I hope that is a sign of better things to come for the rest of the week. You are in our hearts and prayes. I don't know AMcGrew but I agree with her, I HATE Ewings as well!!!

YAY!!!! That makes me so happy for you! I love you cute girls! Hang in there! When Annabelle is released from this hospital visit, let's have another girls day, okay? Ever since Jessica introduced me to coconut shrimp tacos, my life hasn't been the same. :)
