yesterday we got the key to our new house and got to go in and take some measurements and finalize some paint colors before we move next month. it was the first time that malena got to go inside the house, and she finally got to pick out her room. buying that house was 100% the right decision for us. i love new beginnings, and i can't wait to start to build our memories there. the weekend highlight for sure.
so today is national cancer survivors day.
to be honest, i didn't think about it too much today and that was intentional on my part. clearly i am in the thick of surviving cancer right now, so i decided earlier this week that i was going to just hope that i felt well enough to have a good day today.
and i did.
i had some breakfast with friends. printed off a bunch of pictures so i can work in our photo albums. watched kiddo swim laps at her lessons. got a cold green smoothie that actually tasted kind of good (that was a big deal as my tastes buds are so out of whack at this point. even water tastes like metal. ugh). i picked out some new luggage for a little girls trip it looks like i will feel ok enough to go on next week (whew). we had a picnic at the park with our buddies, and i got to watch malena laugh and laugh and laugh as she played in the splash pad.
that all makes for the best kind of day.
please keep sending your vibes and love to beth as she heads in tomorrow morning for her scan results. no doubt about it those results will be clear.
i look forward to hearing the good news from her.
happy monday all, i hope that your weekends were great ones -- may this new week get off to a good start for all of us.
