Our Grand Home Tour

2016 Home Tour

 I love a great home tour, don’t you?  There are so many beautiful, stunning homes. The problem is that most of the times, these homes look like a visit to a furniture store. No life in them So, today i’ll give a tour of our everyday home. Sometimes it’s a bit worse than it looks in the photos!

 Λατρεύω τις παρουσιάσεις σπιτιών. Τρελαίνομαι να χαζεύω πανέμορφα σπίτια, αλλά τις περισσότερες  φορές μοιάζουν με άψυχες εκθέσεις επίπλων. Γι’αυτό κ εγώ θα μοιραστώ μαζί σας την καθημερινότητά μας. Κάπως έτσι, ίσως και χειρότερα είναι το σπίτι μας συνήθως.

Our New 50 Year Old Dining Table & Life Updates

A beautiful 50 year old oval dining table

 Oh, wow! It’s been more than a month since my last post. I must admit this was a very relaxing period!  And after a another visit to my endocrinologist i am now an a new pill, which after almost a month, seems to be working. This doctor believes that one of the excipients of my first medication was the problem. Probably an allergic reaction to one of them. I am a sensitive person with angry cells, like my allergist says it! But the big question is : which excipient was it? and how am i going to find out?

 My new medication has the same levothyroxine dose like the first one, but the excipients are only water and glycerine. The only serious problem is that my TSH almost doubled in the last 4 months, from 1.15 to 2.23 . Doctor said that since we want to have another baby, my TSH must be below 2.5 . We’ll see what happens!

 And now to our new dining table. My grandma had this for almost 50 years and now that she moved to a new house she no longer needs this. Ever since i was a child i liked this table so much! I called dibs and now it’s in our home! It’s a round, 112cm diameter, table but we added the 40cm wide extension to make it oval and a bit larger. Look at these legs!

And the wavy detail. It’s in a pretty good shape. The gorgeous legs need a touch up. And there are some paint drops on the side, visible only from a close distance. I am only worried about the veneer. It’s got a couple of scratches and some minor cracks in some spots. It’s not peeling, yet. I am only staining the legs and sanding the paint drops. I think i’ll leave the veneer as it is for now.  And we’ll see how this goes. What do you think?

A few cracks and scratches are a problem, a minor one at the moment

 Our home looks bigger and our old table top rests behind our bed. We have a pretty big headboard now! And i must find a centerpiece suitable for our dining table.

Slowly Recovering

Wow! It’s been a month since my last post! I am feeling better, a lot better. There are some ups and downs and difficult days, but nothing special. My doctor suggested trying another type of medication. We’ll see how that one goes. 

 I am getting back on track again. Finding inspiration and my crafting mood again. I have an accent wall idea to share with you guys this week! I loved it, my lovely husband on the other hand, did not. But he rarely likes my fabulous ideas!

 I’d like to ask one more thing to you! Would you like to see any other topic, besides crafting and home decor, at Bisozozo? Food or beauty and make up ideas? Let me know!

 Thank you all for your support! Get ready for a come back post on Thursday!

Feeling So Tired

diagnosed with hashimoto's

So, here i am! Trying to get my thyroid back in a good state and trying to find the proper medication. Oh! That one hurts! Literally. The 1st pill i tried did not work well! After 6 days of medication my feet started burning and a few days ago i was having a really hard time (trying) to walk. Standing up for more than a few seconds was out of the question. It was terrifying. I was feeling exhausted and all i wanted to do was sleep and i did not want to talk. Yeap, me! Just the basics. And some days not even these!

My mood is up and down throught the day. I finished a new project today and although i loved it yesterday, i just wanted to throw it away a few hours ago. I trully think it is the worst table lamp ever! I even wanted to delete my blog today and disappear. I got better later in the day. But the constant feet burning and aching and mood changes and exhaustion are so annoying that i honestly do not know what i want or like. I hope it goes away soon. As the day moves on it gets worse. Better in the morning and starting to get worse after noon usually. My doctor said i should take a few days without medication and then try a new one.

I also found out that this Hashimoto thing as well as thyroid problems in general not only cause problems during pregnancy, but may even be responssible for infertility issues! Since we ‘d love to have a second baby, i must get that small, but so important gland back in shape! Although, God has the first saying in the pregancy thing – and not only that one!

Depending on my mood i’ll share the lamp with you next week! Until then…
