Mom update

Not up to a long post but I did want to thank everyone who kept me and my mom in their thoughts the past few days.

She was in surgery for a really long time but the neurosurgeon says it couldn’t have gone better and he thinks he got everything out (and definitely got the pressure she had on her optic nerves).

I saw her in ICU today which was a lot harder for me to handle than I expected. I can already tell recovery is going to be a bitch but I guess that’s to be expected with brain surgery.

I might post more later but for now I feel completely wrung out.

I have also been updating my twitter because it somehow helps me deal if for some reason you want more extensive updates.

But seriously thank you to everyone who has reached out to me or left a comment or sifted thought my late night texts when I desperately need someone to talk to. It all means more than I can eloquently say.

In Which I Receive Nail Polish From a Holiday Swap

Obviously things have been a bit crazy here but while I have a minute I wanted to write up a quick post about one of the fun swaps I joined this season. Especially since Ericka already wrote up such a nice post about the package I sent her.

The swap paired people up to mail nail polish and a card to each other.


Ericka sent me a card with some of my favorite colors and my first ever Essie polish. I love the shimmery purple and that the color is called “It’s Genius” as well. Ericka also sent me a cute emery board in a handy case that has already been placed in my bag for handy access.


I decided to repaint my nails for some normalcy and I’ve got to say that I really love the color.
