For some reason, every single time I sit down to blog, I end up changing my mind. I think how I really have nothing interesting to share (which I never did nor did I ever intend to..ha!) or how no one reads it (which per the numbers isn't true but feels like it due to lack of comments), etc. etc... And so I don't blog and regret it later that I'm not keeping it up. Yes, I may be going through a hard time right now with my Mom (and best friend at that) having cancer and all of the many big and small ways it has negatively changed our daily lives, but why not let some of it out through blogging or just even using the blog as an escape? So, that's what I'm going to try to do. 
It has been several weeks since I posted, so I'll update you on what's going on in my life. We will start with my Mom. She is coming up on being halfway done with her chemo treatments (which she seems to be responding well to) this coming week. She bravely shaved her head when her hair started to fall out. So now she sports baseball caps like I do when I haven't washed my hair. Ha! She says the wigs are itchy and uncomfortable. The girls haven't seen her in person since she shaved her head, and I am a little nervous about how they will handle it. HA has already added to her nightly prayers, "and bring back Mah Mau's hair." 
As far as meds go, I think we are finally headed in the right direction. Bashty confirmed it for me the other night at dinner when she said she could tell I was back to being me and how happy she was for me that I was feeling better. She's always a good gauge of how I'm doing because she knows me so well and we spend almost every Saturday together. I told her I didn't feel 100% to which she reminded me no one in my circumstances would right now (Mom's cancer). She had a good point. 
HA has decided she wants to be Sophia the First (Disney) for Halloween, so we will make her birthday party with the same theme like we always do. As you can imagine, I'm already trying to come up with "royal" ideas! :) 
HA has started fall soccer. Her first game is this Saturday. Not positive I'm going to be able to make it since I'm having two teeth implants done this Friday morning. I hope I can just take a pain pill and go anyway. 
We are starting what's called Wednesday Night Live at our church (Franklin First United Methodist Church) next week. I'll be in a women's Beth Moore bible study and HA will do Cherub Choir. 
And finally...I'm looking for a job and our house is still on the market...anyone else feel overwhelmed?! ;)
