R & R

We've had a wonderful weekend. I haven't felt such calm or peace in a very long time. It was so nice to just stay home and be together. I even found the energy (with Craig's help) to get the house back in shape yesterday. This is a big relief in itself. I'm always calmer when things are as they should be. We even went to the West Acres yesterday to shop for some clothes for Murray. I did better than expected, but after about an hour, it was time to go. I began to get pretty overwhelmed, but settled down when we got in the car. Two weeks ago, I wouldn't have even been able to leave the house, much less go to a busy shopping mall. I'm calling this progress.

Craig and I had a very nice date night on Friday. Murray went to a sleepover at his Grandpa and Grandma's and Craig and I grilled and shared a bottle of wine by the fire. We sure needed it!

I got a call last week from my boss. Of course, I was worried that they didn't want me to return to my position when I'm finished with therapy. It turns out that they hired someone to fill my position, and when I return, I will be the executive assistant to the president of the company. I was blown away. His faith and trust in me is amazing, and I am so pleased to be able to return in this capacity.

I added a new blog to my list for those interested. Our very dear friends are adopting a child from Columbia, and they have just started posting about their journey.

I hope everyone has an outstanding week. I'm going to continue this journey and will continue to keep you posted.
