Flashback

So here is a flashback....



Here is our master bedroom just a year ago. I don't know what I was thinking then, but I liked it. It stayed like this for 2 years.



Here it is today. Hopefully looking a little better.



The girls room with the mind boggling stripes. I was going to color coordinate everything pink for Syrina and purple for Brianna.

Yeesh!

Crazy!!

I also thought that I would post an update on my MIL. She was doing good. Yesterday they transferred her to a private room. They had to do a test on her. They did the test and wheeled her back to her room and she had an anxiety attack. Today, she is back under sedation, on a respirator cause she can't breathe on her own and in ICU. There is no reason why. She is also swollen again and retaining fluid. Hopefully we will have some answers soon.

Dear Maggie,
I do so hope that your MIL starts to improve soon. It must be a very difficult time for you an especially for your husband.
I think that you have done a great job on the bedrooms. We mustn't look back though.Decorating is like fashion. It never looks as good when we look back, although, I think that your bedroom looked fine before.
Have you had any photos taken of you in your various jammies, yet ? XXXX

Oh Maggie ~ I sit here in my cleaning jammies - no kidding reading this today. I am taking a break and I so glad I stopped over. I cannot even imagine the emotional roller coaster you are all on concerning your MIL. Hugs to you from the great white north ~ wish I was closer cause I would come over with a bottle of wine and a hug! xo

Love the freshness of the stripes.

Sending sincere hopes that your MIL is improving. Such a worry and upheaval--the price of caring--until you get good news.

Talk about good news--I hear your lucky number was drawn at Daisy Cottage. Congratulations!

Good Morning my dear friend! I am so sorry to hear that your MIL is having problems again. I'll continue to pray for her! I love your new bedroom look- very chic! The stripes and the pictures of your sweet children make a grand focal point in the room.
