"In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.” Oscar WIlde

I  am  home. 

(The balloon says welcome home and the photo is blurry because I used my iPhone and had 2 dogs wrapping themselves around my knees)

I was discharged 3 days ago from Hartford Hospital. I feel good. I will be going back weekly to see oral surgery and that's good because the tooth behind the one they extracted has stopped being tolerable to cold and hot... more to come on that as it unfolds itself. I feel a peace in my heart that I know I haven't felt for a while.. in the sense that I've been sidetracked by the pain in my body. I am carrying a 101 fever today, but I'll give the tooth credit for that.

It feels good to feel this peace. On Thursday after I was released, Ale had his reading session with Ms. C. He's not lacking in reading, he's 5 and is frustrated because he wants to sit and read a book. He adores her. He wants her to live with us and it is so beautiful to be nearby and listen to her, so tuned in with him and he, so entranced by what she is teaching him.

On Friday I got my hair cut, which is one of my favorite things to do and it was many months overdue and the gray's were popping:
(sorry about the zombie eyes)--

I also met with a friend for coffee, who is new in the sense of longevity, but seriously I feel like we are long lost siblings who've known each other for so long... we talked and laughed and made plans for upcoming day... Friends are amazing gift.

Friday night we went out to dinner at Wood N Tap and watched "No Strings Attached", which was so adorable. It was light hearted and I love Natalie Portman and well, as in Tara's Way To Watch A Movie, I fell asleep in the last 15 minutes.. I either fall asleep in the first 15 or the last 15 so in this case.. big shout out to the producers for keeping me awake..

Saturday was an amazing day-- In the first hour of my day, in true Tara style, I annoyed the heck out of Nitza by not walking the dogs, being lazy and just letting them out back and being lazier and not cleaning up the #2 the left and for sending them upstairs without feeding them so they bothered her until she got up and fed them... so after I rightfully owned my laziness we moved on to

We headed out for veggies to plant, more mulch, topsoil, wood to finish a project and I found 16 dollars on  Starbucks gift card---- SCORE!

The weather was amazing in our little area of the world so we had a great time:

Nitza mulched the front of our house. 

I finished building this garden box for Nitza so she could have ample planting room and here she is in all her happiness planting away.

Nitza in the evening (though not last) with Bella and Lola in her arms... I am so happy.


I fell a fullness of love in my heart. I am incredibly grateful to wake in my beautiful home with my beautiful family, 2 scruffy little dog included. This is what life's about. This is why I'm happy.

Popped over from Karla's blog {masto mama's} after reading your comment. I'm glad that you are home. Hospitals are no no no fun. I was at Children's Hospital with my son Samuel for a week in January -- found out that he has Celiac Disease.

Praying for continued recovery and renewed strength.
