My last post was a bit cryptic so I'm going to put a little context to it.
Here's how crazy our month has been. At the beginning of the month, MJ got a really nasty sinus infection and had stomach issues. He lost a LOT of weight. After that, we had a week of normalcy, which was short lived because MJ had a surprise issue that landed us in the emergency room at Howard University. Remind me to NEVER go there again. The place was so old fashioned and dirty looking! I thought it would have been more modern and impressive, but nope. I was fooled. Then shortly after, I got an infection which had me stressed the heck out. Then MJ had another flair up, which forced us to visit a specialist all the way in Annapolis. (You know it takes a lot longer to get to Annapolis from DC than it did from our old spot. Geez that was a long ride.) Then on a hot day, we opened up the vent over our bed and forgot to close it before we went to sleep. So you know what that meant for us the next day - sore throats that felt like death. THEN the allergies kicked in. Have you seen all the green on the cars lately! It's crazy!Last night, I don't think my husband slept more than 3 hours. I almost kicked him out of the room due to all the hacking and spitting and coughing he was doing throughout the night.On top of everything, we've had to keep business pretty much as normal. For example, we ran down to the Hampton area for a wedding. We housed guests for a weekend. In Feb, we signed up for special activity in the ministry in which we dedicate 30+ hours in the field. And we've been remodeling our kitchen which we NEED to complete so I can start cooking again. Sidenote: Eating out every day is NOT ok. I think it's part of the reason why our health has been so poor. To supplement the poor eating habits though, we invested in some vitamins (which I took on an empty stomach this past weekend... UGH. Death again.)
Ironically, this month has brought us extremely close. My mom keeps telling us that we need to slow down on the house remodeling and designing, but I actually think it helps us. Otherwise, we'd be laying in the bed miserable, wallowing in our demise. Sprucing up our home, which I'm in love with, is keeping us sane.
Speaking of... Look! MJ put the hardware on the freshly painted doors this morning after he dropped me off at the metro. Aren't they beautiful!? I am too excited.
I love this house beautification process. It's coming together right before our eyes. I think I actually might be a bit sad when it's all done. There's a TON of work to be done though, so I think I have a while for that to happen.
Anyway, all in all, it's been a sucky but terrific month so far. One more week of March to go!
