OK Platelets, come back already!

Sunil spent another day in the Day Hospital for a Platelet infusion because his platelets were down to 21,000 and his stupid gums were bleeding. At least the gums don't hurt, they just seep blood. Gross.

Marlon has been asking to have our friends Donald and Paulie over for dinner for weeks now, and I think it is finally happening tonight. They have two cute dogs that we love to have over just to scare the cats and provide hours of entertainment with their amazing tricks.

Not much else happening here. Sunil and I are seeing if we have a shot at getting a mortgage to hopefully buy an apartment. New York City has a bunch of buildings that the city bought in the 70's and 80's and turned into low-income co-ops. You can't make over a certain amount of money to be able to qualify. Which, we don't. :) If we could buy something that is cheaper than our rent ($2200 a month) than I think we will go for it. Although we have an amazing roofdeck, we would like to have a real kitchen. Our current kitchen is small and only one person can fit in it at a time. Not really good to cook big dinners in. I've managed for the last 3 years, but Sunil HATES our kitchen. He's since stopped cooking and that makes me sad because he is a great cook!

Nothing else much going on. I think that Sunil's friend Chris may be coming out in a couple weeks to hang out. Then my friend Jamie and her daughter Madison come out the first weekend in Dec. THEN Sunil's folks and sister and brother-in-law are coming the weekend after that. THEN Anitha (Sunil's cousin) is coming out to help us out. We are so blessed by everyone who has rallied around to help us!!

It dawned on me, since we aren't making two full incomes anymore that our spending needs to decrease, common sense right? Well, I'm wondering if any of ya'll have anything in the following list that you would be willing to donate to us? :) A way of cleaning out your stuff and helping us at the same time. Hopefully if this works, the shipping would be the only thing that would incur an expense.

Current wants/needs :)

1. Small Television preferably flat.
We don't have a lot of space in our bedroom, but since sunil is laying down a lot these days, it would be nice to get him a tv in our room. small, 15-25 inch.

2. A small writing desk.
I have been working from home a lot (thanks to my amazing boss and work!) and I don't have a proper desk to put my Computer on. I've since had to move it on to our kitchen table to keep my back from KILLING ME! grrrr for bad backs. It would be nice to have something small, no bigger than 20inches deep to be able to fit in the corner of our apt.

That is it for now. Love you all.
