OhMyGoodness I can hardly breathe! OhMyGoodness!!!
I just got my weekly Monday morning call from the furniture company. I was fully expecting (hoping/praying) for the typical "everything's on schedule... it'll be here by March 15th" phone call, but NO! Not today, my friends!
The new furniture for LO's new room is--get this!--HERE!!!!! It's here in town at the warehouse just waiting for us to either pick it up or arrange delivery! It's here! It's here! It's here!
Can you tell I'm excited?!?!?!?!
Seriously, I had to apologize to poor Eli (the furniture guy) for the excessive bawling and crying that immediately commenced when he informed me our furniture is H-E-R-E! I blamed my 30-week-pregnant hormones but I know it's so much more than that.
Now we just have to figure out WHEN we'll be able to ship LO off for a little weekend of fun with a grandparent or friend or what-have-you so we can have the time we need to get it all done while she's out of the house. I'm beyond thrilled!!! But the timing is still kind of "ugh" because I work this weekend and have other activities already scheduled for the next two weekends after that. But regardless, we WILL find the time and her room WILL get done ASAP!!! I'm so stinkin' excited!!!!!
P.S. Thanks to all of you for your patience with my obnoxious self over the past 2 months... so many posts about furniture delays and room decor. Surely half of you stopped reading this ol' blog by now! But there should only be one more post on this particular subject... the BEFORE & AFTER pics!!!
My name is John and I came across your blog while searching things about HLHS. I read your blog post about the 20 year old boy you interviewed, Tom.
I am contacting you because I want you to know he isn't the one 20 and over with your child's CHD. In March of 1990, I was born with HLHS too. I had my last surgery, the Fontan in '93. This March, I will turn 23 and in May will receive a BA in Psychology. Please know I would love to answer any questions you may have. If you would like to contact me, please reply to this comment and we can share contact info.
