So I know it's been quite a while, but I have good reasons, I promise! I wont go into all the details but we have been struggling with infertility and all the craziness that goes with it. I guess you could say I have been slipping in and out of depression the last couple of years with all the emotional ups and downs (mostly downs), the meds, treatments, hormones, weight gain, acne... need I go on!?... Well now I have decided to feel normal, as normal as possible!
Anyway.. my cute hubs bought me a house, a house I have always wanted.. kind of.. You see, I have always dreamt of buying an old house and restoring it. This particular house isn't exactly what I have always wanted, but I am not complaining... it's old (1886) cozy, and cute... Well maybe not very cute yet, but it will be! So we started renovations mid-June, they were going along great until the unthinkable happened, my husbands father was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and just passed away six weeks ago.
We took a lot of time off from working on the house to spend time with him, we actually ended up moving in with my husbands parents to help take care of his Dad until he passed. The whole situation was very surreal. I still cant believe it happened. We sure learned a lot about life and ourselves through the whirlwind experience, and we will continue to miss him everyday.
So on a lighter note.. our two month project turned into five, but we are finally starting to move in this weekend!!! I documented our DIY project and can't wait to share it with you.
