Boxes, Boxes and More Boxes

I really, really do think the boxes are multiplying over night.

I'm having fun unpacking even though it's never ending. There will be another garage sale in the near future. I should have gotten rid of more stuff before we moved. I can't believe all the stuff I don't want in my new house. However this fabulous blue shelf is not going anywhere. 
Blue Shabby Shelf

 This shelf was in my garage in my old house as a dust collector. I love it... I'm so glad I kept it. It's just pure shabby sweetness.  I've got to have a shabby chic room. It's my style. I have no clue what else will go with it just yet, but I'm sure I'll figure something out. 

I'm sharing my studio with the extra bedroom and it's just about set up. It's not as much fun as my old studio at my old house but at least I'm not out in the garage anymore. There are plus and minuses for both places. 

I'm enjoying most everything about this move ......Unpacking, decorating, redecorating, hanging pictures, picking out window coverings, buying new furniture, the list goes on and on. Who wouldn't!!! Of course it would have been perfect if my husband would not have gotten sick. I guess nothing is ever perfect. 

My husband is doing so much better...but no surgery yet. He will not have it for about 3 more weeks. I hate we have to wait but thats just the way it is. 
In the mean time I'm enjoying my new life as much as I can.

No More Salt

A home with a view.

Where do I start? We have found our new home. We purchased it and moved in. This is the view from the back deck. It is awesome! Sometimes I have to pinch myself. We are unpacking. It will take me forever, but I don't care. 
Now let me back up. This journey has not been easy. The road ahead will be even harder but I know God will take care of us. Everything will be ok. 
The very same day we closed on our new home my dear sweet man, my husband, the love of my life found out his cancer returned. YuK! I was so scared and shocked. Why right now? We thought we got it all two and half years ago! But it is back in a lymph node in his groin. We scheduled the surgery and tried to move forward after all we just bought a house. We had so many things to do. Everyone rallied and helped us move. Family and friends came together. 
WAIT....it gets worse! Three days after the move Jerry had a heart attack. I gave him an aspirin and rushed him to the ER. It took them all afternoon to figure out he indeed was having a heart attack. Poor guy. He was complaining of chest pains and indigestion but the pains were not that bad. By the end of the day he had two stints put in. It was a mild one but STILL! He will have to change his ways. He will have to start eating better. I will be in control of that. They said this was a blessing in disguise. I have to believe it. Now the surgery for the cancer will be put off for a month because of the blood thinners. Drs are better prepared for it because they now know he has a bad heart. Which will change how they do the cancer surgery. I guess it's a good thing. He could have died while during the cancer surgery of a heart attack and they would not have understood it.  OK... I believe everything happens for a reason. The power of prayer has worked. Now all we have to do is get rid of the cancer.
