My brother is back in surgery today. As always, my brother isn't a public person so I wont say a lot, but with the COVID, his follow up surgery was delayed for MONTHS - so this is a day that is long awaited for him - but surgery is always nerve wrecking & hopefully by the time you read this, I'll have the news that he's just fine & only healing lays ahead.
Backing up, how did the weekend go.... honestly, this is probably one of the laziest weekends - with a side of working. How is that possible? It really is.
Friday, when I got off work, I ended up going to my "second job" as I call it now - making masks. I end up selling 27 masks this past week. Fun stuff.... so I had to start recutting fabric & all that fun stuff.
Then I ended up going & taking care of the horses so Ricky could get to sleep. He was exhausted after a long week & a hard days work.
For me, it was a beautiful night working in the barn. The sun was going down & it was a cool temp. It was really lovely...
... until I had to fill up water buckets.
So much for them being FULL by the time I carried them into the stalls. #soaked
Saturday.... I slept till after 9am.... WHAT AM I? A TEENAGER??? I honestly dont know the last time I did that. But let me tell you - it messed with my day. I'm used to getting up around 6-6:30 - even on the weekends. So to have like 3 hours of my day gone? It really did make me feel like half the day was POOF - gone.
I ended up getting up fast & just threw on some clothes, shoes & headed out to do a lot of errands. I had to drop off some Etsy mail, drop off a UPS package, ran down to Joann's to get some princess fabric, pick up my mom's groceries, take care of the horses - just running running running. It was nearly 3:30 by the time I got home. What the heck.... time in a time warp going on fast forward.
I ended up getting to work on some new masks & am just loving how beautiful & soft these Princess prints are.
I'm also pretty bummed that I cant find any more Belle / Beauty & the Beast fabric. I've sold out of all my Belle masks & glad I have any other princesses.
I finally called it when it was getting later & started watching Lenox Hill. Of course, waking up so late, I couldnt go to bed, so I stayed up so late watching it all - but 2 episodes. I was a nervous wreck though watching it. Totally convinced I now have a brain tumor... & I was SOBBING crying over some of these stories. I was an anxious ball of mess. If you get anxious over medical things- steer clear of this one - but it is so powerful & interesting to see how these doctors work.
I especially liked the COVID episode they added on. I wish it was longer & they could have gotten more on that topic. I think I'm gonna need a yearly update on these doctors & some patients. ... maybe not. I get really emotionally invested... obviously.
Sunday, I did wake up & finish the last 2 episodes of Lenox Hill & got to work on some yarn projects. Hello old friend. Remember when knitting & crocheting was all I did before my sewing machine came into my life?
I woke up early for not going to bed so late (bed around 2am - woke up at 7am) & then just laid in bed to watch Netflix until 11am. LAZY. See why I'm a scheduled kind of person - one day thrown off & it just messes with me.
I ended up finishing Fuller House too & again, all the feels. I hate seeing that show go off. I loved the light heart feel of it. It usually was my go-to to watch before bed after watching news & all the horrible things going on in the world. The Tanner house always made it all better - at least for pleasant dreams.
I took some time to do some self care & did my nails - just in time for the 4th of July. I am totally digging these Colorstreet Nails. Seriously - the cutest.
I then had to put the petal to the metal & get ready - actually READY - make up & straighten my hair - GASP!!!!!.... I have not straightened my hair since March y'all... MARCH.... 3 months ago! Are you kidding me?
|Who is this person?
To be honest - I didnt put make up on below my eyes. LOL... I did put make up around my forehead & my eyes - but none on my noses & chin because of masks :) LOL!!! Why waste it? Plus, my chin is starting to break out with the hot air in the mask & my chin is sweating!! EW!!!! Anyone else getting Maskne? I didnt want make up on my chin to make it worse.
We had to head out to a funeral home for my sister in law who lost her father last week. The restrictions had just lifted a little bit more last week as well so they were able to have a pretty normal visitation & service. I still ache for those that had to have closure without the support of loved ones or a normal funeral.
It was crazy that I was there with Ricky & his family & I look up & see my uncle & aunt & cousin & his wife coming down the hall way. Tell me its not a small world! We actually found out at my dad's funeral that Ricky's sister knows my uncle really well. I had forgotten all about that until I saw them there. I love the connections people have with one another when it wraps back up & holds others that you know & love.
We got home & it was time to feed the dogs, do some home stuff & my brother drove over to pick up some things & I got to wish him luck for his big day....
& we've circled back around to the beginning of the post.
So, if you dont mind & you are a praying person - if you can lift up some prayers for my brother & his wife & girls. It'll be a bumpy road for the next few weeks. Thank you!!!
