New Distractions

So, I had the cryotherapy done eight days ago. It was pretty uncomfortable, but it was over quickly. Now I have to heal for the next two months. I am already a bit disappointed because I have been having a little bleeding for the past few days. I was really hoping that was all behind me. So far, it is better than it used to be and I hope it stays that way. I'll take a big improvement over a total cure. This whole process has been a lesson in patience, if nothing else. I feel like I'm always waiting, waiting, waiting. The waiting had really been getting to me lately, BUT, I seem to have found an effective distraction.

My incredibly awesome parents came for a visit this past weekend and helped us remodel our powder/laundry room. It was a lot of fun, and it looks beautiful. My mind has been racing ever since with ideas for the kitchen and other bathrooms. I'm neck deep in paint samples and am really enjoying it. Here is a before picture of the bathroom: 

And after: 

Pretty great improvement, right?  I am so thankful for my parents. They are the best!

Wednesday has gone to the dogs...

 The B-Man

I'm too sexy for your camera...

Max the Puggle, looking as cute and cuddly as ever!

Anytime I am having a bad day, these guys seem to be able to sense it.  They get extra cuddly and even a little goofy.  They can always bring a smile to my face.  I love these pups!

There is really nothing new to report on the baby making front.  I saw a new OBGYN yesterday regarding the cryotherapy and I loved her.  We will likely be doing the cryotherapy within the next week.  My echo this morning went well, and I'm taking my baby aspirin every day. 

 I FINALLY got my Christmas stuff packed away.  Now, it really does feel  like a new year. Cheers to fresh starts!
