We have loads and loads of laundry. I cannot seem to keep up with it!
The cabinets, countertops, and floor are all done in the kitchen and the electric just got finished the other day too. Next is the plumber and I will finally have a sink and dishwasher and can finally cook! Living without a working kitchen for 5 months is not fun. Eating out gets old. Just living in chaos gets really old!
Steve (one of our black labs) is having some bladder issues we still have not figured out and are now on the third test. So far, his tests have all come back good even though he is getting so old so that is good! We actually have two 12 year olds, a 10 year old, a 3 year old (all dogs) and a 19 year old cat. I am just hoping the old ones hold out at least until Joe gets home.
Emery is having trouble in his school and overall adjusting to the move and having Daddy gone again. We are still in the process of figuring out what he needs. I am still not sure about this school, but am really looking forward to his Kindergarten for him in the Fall. That school seems that it will be great! We are about to enroll him in swim lessons and baseball lessons. And, he has decided to not play soccer. He also is losing his first tooth! Cool.
I have piles and piles of paper to do's still. Finances, things that go with the finances, Emery's medical/school stuff, daily planner stuff, computer to do's and my largest one...all of our files for the past 10+ years to go thru, sort, organize, throw out and shred. Whew!
We are missing Joe like crazy.
We are enjoying two parks in our area. Emery especially loves the one with the old school swings. For those of you who grew up before the 90's, remember how tall they were? We could swing so much higher because the chains were so long!
My creative piles and stuff are still not really accessible. This makes my heart sad and I sure hope soon that I am able to get past all this other stuff and start creating again already. I so need it!
My mind is swirling with ideas and thoughts for this house and also going back and forth as to what to do and what not to do because we are still not sure this is it.
Our silly remote fan/light is having to stay on all night tonight because the battery is dead and we don't have any so I cannot turn it off. I am thinking seriously of just unscrewing the bulb so we can rest without a ton of light shining on us! What is up with the new fancy dancy stuff out there? And, in a 1949 home! What were they thinking? Whatever happened to plain old switches?!
My car has died because I did not drive it. It's hard to balance two when I am the only one driving them. Arg!
I just started a new bible study and am loving it. How to discern the voice of God. Love it. Need it. So want it.
And, when I'm not doing all of that I am taking a few minutes here and there to pour over design books and magazines. My spirit has found a new sense of excitement in design.
Thanks so much for letting me vent! I love you all. XOXO
