A Little Update

It's been 4 months, and quite a bit has happened. Most of it has been hectic, and stressful, and filled with some tears. One day was really awesome...our reception. I'll post more when I get back photos of all the details and the entire night, but for now I want to thank Hannah Cohen, a Boston-area photo journalist who we came to know through my husband's photography group. She was absolutely incredible, and got some amazing shots for us. I can't wait to see the rest of the shots! 

I finally used my sewing room for its intended purpose yesterday...I did a quick mending job on a pair of my husband's pants. About 10 minutes of work. But I will hopefully be using it more. I'm taking a medical leave from graduate school because of some complications with my health. I had another complex cyst that ruptured right before the reception, which seems to have exaggerated my endometriosis, so I'm going to be having a repeat surgery this spring. The medical leave allows me to do a lot more resting, because the more I get up and move around, the worse I feel. It's a bit reminiscent of my back injury, since my physical abilities are a diminished. I know that I go a little crazy not being able to be productive, and I can only rest and lay in bed for so long before I start going stir crazy! I'm already getting into my old sleep pattern...being awake until the wee hours of the morning unable to sleep because of inactivity. I'm thinking of starting some very gentle yoga...any suggestions? I'm sure I'll be getting reacquainted with my sewing machines before long. Simple projects...but something to keep my mind and body busy with something other than endo research.

Hoping all of you are gearing up for spring. Any projects on your horizon?
