Lucky Waldorf Wednesday #7!

It’s been a rather restless week here in our little corner. There’s something about Autumn. Everything changes so quickly. One day it’s warm, the next day you’re turning on the heat. One day you have a little green wood, the next day the trees are clothed in scarlet. And the next day? The leaves are gone and the sun is warm. Who can keep up? It makes my mind spin and keeps me off balance. More than that, it makes me wonder what changes I can make as well. And always, always, there’s a feeling of urgency to do something, change something, be something. I can’t believe that I am the only one who experiences autumn in this way.

It’s a brand new month and a whole new season! Michaelmas is behind us and now we begin a month that’s filled with chillier days, cozying up together, and stretching our imaginations. Whether you celebrate Halloween or not, October seems like a month that’s just made for building forts and dressing up… or at least that’s the way it’s always been at our house.

It’s Waldorf Wednesday!

Thank you all so much for your kind words and good wishes on my wonderful news about my heart last week! I can honestly say that every morning since, I have woken up with a huge smile on my face, remembering that my heart is recovered. Bodies certainly are fearfully and wonderfully made!

As usual, it’s been a bit of a crazy week around here. I (finally) updated my blog last Thursday and promptly lost my header, which was easily remedied. Unfortunately I also lost my ability to post using the visual editor in WordPress, which was NOT easily fixed. Or fixed at all apparently. So now I am using Windows LiveWriter, and I’m actually kind of enjoying it.

Happy Wednesday!!!!

If exclamation points show how happy one is, I should have a billion of them. Yesterday I got the news that, almost two years after Matthew and Molly’s birth and my diagnosis of peripartum cardiomyopathy, or PPCM, I am completely recovered! My heart function is normal, my heart size is normal, and now we begin the work of slowly weaning off the medications. My doctor’s exact words were “If someone walked up to me and handed me a copy of your echocardiogram, I would have no idea what I was supposed to be looking for.”


We’re back! (Some of us are back sipping hot tea and honey because certain babies felt the need to share their colds.)

Thank you to everyone who has shared links and/or shared the link up. Please continue to share. I love the idea of building community by visiting each others’ blogs!
