Retail Therapy

First, Happy Birthday to my dearest cousin and best friend, Janet!

Happy Birthday, Janet!

On Thursday I was in desperate need of a little retail therapy. Before my dental appointment, I stopped by a little shop and I found a cute sun dress. It fits okay, but it will look even better when I get myself going again on Weight Watchers.

New Dress

There are really no good excuses for me having fallen off the wagon except of the stress I have been under.

The face, my mother’s illness, and the illness of a beloved friend. All have set me back a ways.

Today we learned that Mom is stage 4 Liver Cancer. There is nothing that can be done. No magic pill, or anything that can make her well, nothing that will give her a few more months. It is what it is.

I’ve also felt depressed about my face. Although I know I shouldn’t, I do, and I wonder how long a road I will be on with this.

My friends illness is not for me to talk about here. All I can say is to pray for them. That it is not too late to do something about it.

So this is why I found myself in the boutique downtown trying on this adorable dress. I even found a necklace and earrings to match.

Anneliese got sick after dinner, but we got it cleaned up and I will rest her little belly until the morning. Then it will be a little baby rice cereal. Hopefully that will help her to feel much better.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

    I think perhaps I need retail therapy too, but no time to do it.
    Prayers all around and for our little Gabriel as well. Love YOU, Mel
