We watched Bad Moms, which was a hit, and then started Bridesmaids, but she fell asleep before things could really get funny (the epic diarrhea scene). We have plans to watch more on Sunday and Monday. Monday is our day together, and she wants me to show her Beaches and Rocky Horror Picture Show.
D sent me a couple of pics from back when our family was super new. They bring up so many feels.
Our entire family is struggling right now. We have the cancer thing in common, but then each have our own things that contribute to our own anxiety and depression. I think we will all benefit from some time off from the real world. I’m looking forward to being able to spend one-on-one time with each of them. Holiday break can’t come soon enough.
Isn’t she lovely??
There are two other trees to put up, and I need to decorate the mantle, but this was the biggest step. I love this time of year so much. I’m excited to sit in the living room tomorrow night and read next to the tree. Sounds lovely.
Today started off way rough. I’ve been majorly constipated for two weeks, and so I did a Fleet enema, which worked, but too well. And the pain…OMFG. So after about five hours of complete misery, I took Oxy and Immodium to clog up the works again. Sigh.
I was able to get it together for Jackson’s birthday dinner, thankfully. We had a really nice time, and I’m so grateful.
Aren’t we cute? ♥️
We went out for a fancy dinner to celebrate five years as an official family. I love them so very much, and I’m grateful for every second. ♥️
So this is 43:
I woke up feeling pretty rough, and thought the day was a bust, but I ended up getting better rather quickly. The symptoms became manageable enough that I was able to go out to lunch, do some shopping, and have dinner out. We ended up with this fabulous family pic, which I’m obsessed with:
After dinner, we came home and rented The Black Phone, which was really good. Highly recommended.
It was a really good day. I’m so very thankful. ♥️
