I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

A lost cause...

So - a new house (hopefully - eventually!) means a chance to re-purpose some of our things. For several months now, I've been thinking that I'd like to get new things for our master bedroom, and use what we currently have for the guest room instead. Currently our guest room is also Aaron's home office. But our hope is that our next house will have a dedicated guest bedroom. This means that we should (fingers crossed) have space for a queen bed in there instead of the current twin.

Since there's not really anything else I can do for the whole moving process till our house sells, I've spent a lot of downtime this past week or so "daydreaming" online. Tonight I decided to look for a potential new duvet cover (comforter, quilt, whatever) since that's a reasonable place to start when redecorating a bedroom. Here's the list of websites, and number of possibilities I looked at tonight:

Amazon - 4784
Overstock - 120
Sears/Kmart - 304
Pottery Barn - 66
J C Penny - 224
Bed, Bath & Beyond - 276
Macy's - 347

For a grand total of: 6121 photos! (Thank goodness for internet browsing - my feet would be killing me after that much real store looking!)

There were only THREE that I was willing to even consider!!!

The cheapest one is $199.00. Sigh. Unless someone out there has some other websites for me to check out, I think it's a lost cause.

So - if/when we do sell our house, and move to Pittsburgh ...
If our guest room fits the queen bed that's been offered to us ...
If you ever come to visit us and spend the night ...
It looks like you're gonna use a sleeping bag to keep warm.
