Drumroll, please

No, faithful readers, I am not dead, in spite of evidence such as two missing Friday Fashion posts! The horror!

As penance for my recent silence, I bring you tidings of great joy. This Thursday, Dad will be coming home. Three months, a few missing vertebrae, and the addition of a walker, and he is finally well enough and fit enough to be released. He will continue to receive physical therapy several times a week, but the therapist will conveniently come to his home. My heart overflows.

He's pretty happy about it, too.

In other news, my hearing more or less returned last night after its fortnight banishment due to a double ear infection. My sanity, however, is still nowhere to be found.

And (now for that drumroll): There is furniture. In our house. You can now go into our house and, like, sit. It's pretty incomprehensible. We spent the weekend moving heavy things (and by "we" I of course mean everyone except for me) and organizing, dusting, sweeping, wiping, and hanging. There's still a lot to do, but it is now at least marginally acceptable for the house guests that will be coming to spend the night this Friday. Nothing like the eleventh hour.

They are going to stay here, in the REDRUM!

That bed belonged to my paternal grandparents and has resided in my parents' spare bedroom for as long as I can remember. Now it will live in ours. And I promise our guests there will be sheets on the bed by the time they arrive. Hopefully.

In lieu of two missed Friday Fashion posts, I bring you Our Guest Bathroom Shower Curtain. Note my incredibly imaginative brown color palette. I'm a design genius, I'm well aware.

These are the shower hooks that came with the curtain! I didn't even have to pick them out myself! The store knew that level of skill was beyond my abilities, so they just packaged it all together! So adorable!

Look! A coffee table and lamp and sideboard table! And there's a couch in there now, too! PROGRESS, PEOPLE!

This might be my favorite. The dining table is now situated directly under that light to match the six chairs and china hutch. I was a little bit worried originally, because the furniture isn't exactly my taste, but it's a similar color to the kitchen cabinets (ohanddidimentionfree?) and is actually fitting beautifully.

I promise to post more than once a week, barring any additional infections, plagues, or pestilence. And maybe someday I'll get around to that promise of redesigning the site banner. Maybe.

I wouldn't exactly say the furniture was free :p Definitely glad there is furniture in the house, and that your dad will be joining me for some Glenlivet :)

Unfortunately you can't watch anything at our house...there's no tv moved over yet. It's rather unfortunate...
