Absolutely no regrets choosing general over local anesthesia for the vitrectomy. I may gasp at the bill, but the horror of knowing THIS is what they did is plenty for me. Headed to the doctor again for another checkup this morning to see what he thinks of my progress, but I can say I’m optimistic as the “horizon” (where the…

The garden continues to explode in awesomeness! From top left: Valerian (we divided it last year and it definitely sprung to life, taller than the fence!), Calendula (I love how weedy this flower gets – great to fill in spots in the garden), Hostas (We have tons of these but this one in particular was planted in honor of Dan’s…

More flowers coming into bloom in our front garden, from our irises to our first rose to more alliums and the clematis climbing up the trellis on the fence.

Too awesome not to buy at Walgreen’s. My husband got his first ever Easter basket from me and I filled it full of the cheesiest things, from the chicken that squawks…

And finally, here’s my own personal dream team I saw this week who have supported my mental and physical as we count down to our Sixth and Final Transfer Day. Clockwise from top left: Julie from Written on the Body (been going to her for THE best massages for a zillion years, and the only provider I can completely let…

Not exciting to some but for us, two new ceiling light fixtures are AWESOME!!! If you buy a house and nearly every single one is a pull-chain “nipple light”, finally finding a way to replace them with normal fixtures is a mega celebration. Even better? Doing it WITHOUT busting open the walls to update the wiring!!! We did a lot…
