Okay. So, I do these breathing techniques to help me calm down, regroup, fall asleep, and basically not murder people. Lately, they have been very helpful and in the coming weeks, if you see me in a corner with my eyes closed repeatedly counting to four, just walk on by. Really. Here is the run-down on our crazy August.
The restaurant (Coriander Cafe, come and see us!) will open in just a few weeks. The weekend of August 20th to be exact. All of my Washington pals will be able to tell you that the opening coincides exactly with back-to-school. Soooo, for the next few weeks, CHAOS! Jeremiah and Chris have been working at a furious pace already. I can't imagine the perfect storm we will create when I throw myself into the mix.
At this point, I am going to throw in a little update on my dad. Mostly because my family takes up a ton of space in my mind and I never feel like I have enough time there. Here goes.The doctors have basically decided that it would be best to manage his pain at this point, since his liver is very damaged from all of the treatment. Any more chemo would make his liver hurt even more. Less time on the road to Houston and more time with family is in order.
Now for baby. I haven't done a lick to prepare the nursery for our little baby girl. We were mostly waiting to find out her gender, but I must say that procrastination has come into play. We also have yet to fix the kitchen and utility room floors along with other home repairs. And we need to register. Sheesh.
Inhale, 2, 3, 4-Hold, 2, 3, 4-Exhale, 2, 3, 4- Hold, 2, 3, 4- Repeat. Try it. It works.
This is slowly turning into a to-do list. To stop myself and save you, I end with a quote from Forrest Gump. That's all I have to say about that. For now:)
