Where does the time go?

Can anyone believe it's already October?! Ridiculous.

Jordan made another trip to Houston yesterday to spend some time with his dad. Things are continuing to progress slowly but surely. He continues to do hours of physical and occupational therapy per day. Jordan says that with a good bit of assistance, George is standing up. His speech is clearing up- not as slurred. His therapists say because his brain is still swollen and the bleeding is still there, that he has problems focusing and staying on track. Despite this, he's making good progress. They expect him to stick around for another week or two. He is definitely ready to get out of rehab and go home- but continues to maintain a sense of humor. Jordan says he thoroughly enjoys joking around with his nurses & therapists.

And here's the most important thing!

George's 60th birthday is Wednesday (10/7!)!!!! Originally, he planned to spend his momentous birthday back in Augusta, but of course, now he'll be spending it in the hospital. Nobody likes having a birthday in the hospital!!! So, we are hoping to shower him with birthday cards and love and support. Friends & family-- this means you! If you want to send him a card (and you should!!), get in touch with either Jordan or myself.

In other news, our NEW FURNITURE IS HERE!!!!! After scouring dozens of furniture stores for just the right combination of sofa/loveseat/chair that Jordan and I both loved, we decided on a set and bought it. We waited weeks for the delivery (it was out of stock and had to be special ordered, of course...), and finally FINALLY it's here.

And I L.O.V.E. it.

Love the couch!

Love love love love love the chair!!!!

Isnt it just the most fab couch/loveseat/chair combo you've ever seen?! Our house is really becoming a one-of-a-kind, homey-home. There is still a lot to be done (hello, curtains?!), but for now I'm loving getting home at night or waking up in the morning and seeing our lovely living room. And if there's any question in your mind about how comfy it is...

Your favorite Aunt LuLu said...

Could you please help me lobby for that in my home!?
I love the fabric and the pattern. It's like a retro/modern floral. And I know I just contradicted myself :)
