It is wonderful to have Shana and Devree home. Everything seems to be back to normal. Shana and I dread the thought of being apart for the 4 months of chemo that will begin on April 22, 2009.
Things were not back to normal immediately. I thought we had done alright, but there were a few things that Shana and Devree pointed out right away. There were very light muddy dog footprints where the rug for wiping your feet should be. Devree asked why the rug had been moved in front of Shay’s bedroom door. As I was asking myself why I hadn’t noticed, Shana went on to ask me why 2 pictures were missing off the wall. At this point I was feeling embarrassed about missing something so obvious. (We found 1 picture on the floor nearby, but the other picture is still missing.)
The sisters at church asked me if they could come and clean. Next time I’ll have to consider that more seriously. I’m sure these good women would have noticed things like that.
I thought we had done ok with bathrooms, but Shana disagreed and quickly remedied that situation.
Shana was willing to let me assume the duties of “Food Nazi” and “Pill Pusher”. I am happy to help with that job. Devree says that Grandpa Hamblin is her favorite “Food Nazi”. If she would eat 3 potato chips, he would eat 1 on the sly and let her take the credit.
Devree looks great!!! She has good coloring, good spirits, and she is happy being able to sleep in her own bed. However, she is as skinny as a super model, and there is no camera to add 10 pounds. We will have to work on fattening her up. So if you have any ideas for adding pounds… Devree needs you!!!
Lots of love to all of you!!!
