My Life in Pictures

Kris's office

The living room.  Come on in, have a seat.  Wait, scratch that.

Stairs that should have been completed on Monday.   They might look finished, but they're not.

Our bedroom.   But where is the bedroom furniture?  Behind the plastic doorway, in our bathroom.
I know, I know, this won't last forever.  But since last Friday we've been without a place to sit, Kris and I are in the full size guest bed (until one of us ends up in bed with Sadie), our closet also has furniture in it, there is dust EVERYWHERE, things are scattered, people in and out of the house all day, Sadie feels trapped since she can't run around and play in the house.... thankfully, we are getting away next week.  That's when all the sanding and staining *should* take place.  I'm praying that when we come back, everything will be in its place - because this is getting old!

That Makes Me Crazy!!

Today has been a day.....things making me crazy:

  • barking dogs
  • maternity pants - they just will not stay up.  I need suspenders!  Actually, let's just say maternity clothes in general - shirts included.  Gross.
  • waiting.  and more waiting.
  • the fact that it's a nice day and I can't go out and enjoy it.  Why?  Because I'm waiting....on people, on projects, on paint to dry, etc.
  • And the fact that I'm letting stupid little things make me crazy today when I have a friend who is going through things way worse than this.  Who am I to complain about such things?  
So, how about things that I should be thankful for today instead:
  • the fact that I have dogs?  uhm.....maybe.  ok.
  • the fact that my baby is growing and I need bigger clothes
  • the projects being done around my house.  Even if it requires a lot of waiting, I'm blessed to have improvements going on.
  • so thankful for my strong friend and how she fiercely loves her special little boy!!
