I think I need to take a break from chronicling my progress (and setbacks). Things are actually going okay, but there are a couple reasons why I need to just pull in for a little while. For one thing, it's taken a really personal turn, and given how open and honest I've been here, I know you'll trust me on that. For another, I'm also finding it difficult to articulate what is going on, even in my personal journal.
So, today had its ups and downs.
This little lady was a source of a lot of the ups. She's so sweet and so beautiful and just makes me happy.
We went for dinner at Chili's tonight (courtesy of HH's mama--looking out for us in the wake of the madness from HH's shoulder surgery with one less meal I had to cook!). For the most part everyone was really well behaved and it was a fun family night out. We haven't been having as much fun family time lately, so that was definitely a Joyful Moment.
