Happy Tuesday, my friends! Today, I'm off to Georgetown for an MRI. We're trying to get a better idea of what caused the partial obstruction in my intestine, so we can then decide what to do about it.
Quite honestly, I'm a little scared out of my mind. One month ago, I was feeling fine, and could not have even fathomed a reason for surgery to be anywhere in my near future. Now it's a very real possibility, and I just can't handle the thought.
That gives me all the more reason to want to join this linkup that the lovely Belinda is hosting. She believes (and I totes agree) that there is so much joy in the everyday moments of life. Even though I'm dealing with this setback, life is still pretty good.
Here are some of my favorite everyday moments from this past month:
- Spending time with my parents for Mother's Day Weekend
This was the weekend when I started to get really sick, but I was still so happy to have my parents up for a visit. I don't get to see them enough in a year, and I never could have imagined how much I would miss living close to them. Every day I wish the distance was shorter.
- Watching rom coms with Matt in the hospital
Every evening, Matt would bring me a bag of whatever I requested from the house, and he would help me change into pajamas. Then we would curl up together in my hospital bed and watch a rom com of my choosing. Hospitals stay can be miserable, and this basically helped me survive.
- A hot bubble bath at home the night I was discharged
No explanation necessary.
- Making more home cooked meals
Somehow I managed to do this, even with being sick and in the hospital for a week.
- Spending time with our neighbors
Now that the weather has finally warmed up, we're spending more time outside and spending more time getting to know our neighbors. It's nice to have so many that our age living in our neighborhood, and I'm excited for this summer.
- Taking lots of pictures with my new camera
Thanks for the birthday present, mom and pop!
- Eating pizza on the couch and binge watching True Detective
My absolute favorite way to spend an evening.
So as you can see, dear reader, May was full of wonderful moments. What are your favorite, everyday moments from the past month?
