Just an update to let you all know we're holding steady.
We've been keeping busy per usual with all the normal check ups. Coben was well enough for his monthly chemo infusion, and his daily chemo at home stays the same.
Between neurology and oncology and physical and occupational therapy, throw in the podiatrist and dermatologist, occasional AFO adjustments, dentist appointment, eye specialist, pharmacy runs... not to mention the monthly bone broth, weekly syringe sterilization, daily green juice smoothies...
The occasional school lessons and oh yeah we're STILL BUILDING A HOUSE.
Sometimes it just feels like a lot, and the need to update and share seems low on the list of priorities.
Coben has NOT had another seizure, and so every day that goes by helps me breathe a little easier in some sense... and yet still has me in anticipation for the curve ball he might throw. So as always, we keep busy, but mostly keep things just one day at a time.
Find your people, cherish every moment with them, and never let them go. Family, old friends, and new friends.
I’m a homebody, but I’m also one of the biggest travel bugs and always have the itch. I’m at a point where I don’t get to spend a lot of time with the fam and people back home. I’ve been surrounded by 100+ family members at once and I’ve been halfway around the world with none of them for months on end. Life has sure taught me to love every minute💕
I think once you realize how to make the small things count your life becomes more unique.
It’s really easy to find everyday life to be monotonous or boring, but it’s also possible to find everyday life to be enjoyable.
Whenever I think about this I always think of my grandma. She would play cards with me or do puzzles when I was young and even the normal days were more enjoyable around her.
It’s as simple as this, your reality is what you make of it. If you find your reality to be boring maybe you should look inward and not what’s around you.
Social networking environments seem to be leading to the development of own culture — “idioculture”, blurring the boundaries between the real and virtual worlds and constructing “hybrid” identities.
The definition of “idioculture” was developed by Gary Alan Fine in 1987. It describes a system of knowledge, beliefs, behaviours, and customs shared by members of an interacting group to which members can refer and that serve as the basis of further interaction. Members recognise that they share experiences, and these experiences can be referred to with the expectation they will be understood by other members, thus being used to construct a reality for the participants.

Issey Miyake uses very unusual and rare materials in order to create perfumes that evoke the sense of timeless freedom and serenity. L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme was created as a universal Eau de Toilette perfect for any occasion.
L'Eau d'Issey for Men is a woody aquatic fragrance with yuzu as in top notes, along with notes of bergamot, lemon and tarragon. A middle note is spicy and woody: nutmeg and water lily are an exciting and unexpected accord in this composition. An end note carries an intense woody scent which is sharp and enriched with tobacco,sandalwood, cedar, vetiver and musk. It was created by Jacques Cavallier in 1994.
Two editions in new flacons but with the same compositions were introduced in 2009 - L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme and L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Intense. Colours of the flacons - light grey and dark grey colour of asphalt make an impression of a union of water and concrete.
