Hello World

Love the new start to the year this month. But my it is cold this morning brrrrrrrrrrrr. My flowers are just not understanding. Just a quick note today. The shop will be closed next Wednesday, February 23rd. We will be in Seattle at the UW for reconstructive surgery number 2. The exciting part is that he will then be done for six months and the last surgery at the end of summer will be a fine tune project to clean up the scars. He is really doing well through all this and we thank you for your prayers. Have a wonderful weekend.

New Beginnings

The last month just needs to disappear completely, but it is over We need to celebrate new beginnings around here and we are. First off, the child who was attacked, beaten and had part of his nose bitten off has had his first reconstructive surgery. It went so well that they actually did two major surgeries in one. So at the most he has two more to go Happiness is a good thing to feel. He has started seeing a therapist to help him work through the mental and emotional things that are now a part of his life since the attack, which is fantastic. He has his good days and bad days, but now that the process has begun he is more at peace. On a side note the surgery was done at the U of W Medical Center, what an awesome place. The second reason for happiness around here is I am finally well and the shop is open regular hours again. The bug turned into pneumonia and for nearly two weeks the shop was closed and I was home in bed and on the couch. I learned one important thing I don't like being home. The decision was made and the store will remain open.I am so excited about new things to come. So now we are shopping whenever we can to bring in lots of new fun stuff. Hopefully by the end of March we will be full to the rafters again.Now it's off to the shop and tonight to celebrate the 41st birthday of our first borne. I am not old, just a women of experience. Doesn't that sound better than old.....
