it has been so long, i can hardly believe it. you cannot even begin to imagine the things that life has thrown me in that time span. things had finally started to settle down...my health was good, my move was completed and i am finally settled in the new place, etc...until today life threw me another curve ball. it looks like i have yet another battle with this cancer. let me tell you, this is one tough little bugger, it will just not accept the fact that i am going to keep kicking his ass until he's dead. (why is it so much easier to deal with cancer if i think of it in terms of a male, rather than just "it"? hehe, sorry...just a slight bit of male bashing!) oh well, no matter how many times i relapse, i will keep fighting!
but other than that development, life is good. i am so glad to be out of that awful town and living where i am. the new apartment is great...we painted accent walls in the kitchen and dining room the greatest color...it's called "firecracker". it's perfect. i love walking in the door and seeing it! now we just need to tackle the living room walls. my bedroom and bathroom are taking shape too. i picked up a set of decorative plates the other day to hang on the walls. they are adorable! the theme of the plates is "i swoon" and each plate has the words "i swoon over (....)" and a picture of that item. my favorite of the set is "i swoon over a very large diamond ring" with an adorable painting of a engagement ring in a purple and green box. ;) i wish! But they are still adorable, and my bathroom is going to look great when I hang them tomorrow. Hehe, I wonder what Chase will say when he sees that!
speaking of him, we are still doing great. i continue to be amazed that i found a man as wonderful as him, and that he loves me to boot! how did i pull that one off? :) he has been out of town for the last 2 weeks (i saw him briefly over the weekend) and though i have missed him, it has been a good thing. i told myself (before i moved down) that i wouldn't spend all my time with him (you can imagine how well that worked out!), so his absence has forced me to break that habit. now if i could only stick with it! he'll be home tomorrow, yay! (but, of course, he'll probably have to leave again sunday or monday) we have an engagement party, for his cousin and his finace, on saturday. (it's only "we" if i can get off work in time...cross your fingers!) it will be the first time we sign a card with both of our names...is it odd that i consider that some sort of a milestone? lol, i'm a dork!
well, i need to get some sleep. i have work in...wow! 2 hours! i'm in big trouble! (i'm going to be napping by the time chase gets back tomorrow..haha, great!) goodbye friends!
