Which brings me back to our house.
"If you are willing to make the sacrifice it will be worth it."
Hm. Well. Our home is making progress. We've had a busy couple of weeks. Boxes to unpack (which I think takes about a full decade), children and self to clean up after, my sister-in-law's wedding to prepare for. Though I don't have pictures for you of any of it. My poor camera is stuck with it's lens out (how embarrassing!) because the battery is dead dead and I can't find the cord to charge it anywhere. Again, the joys of moving (though I often lose cords anyway). So you're stuck with my meandering words for now. (Hey, you're the one still reading....) We (and by we I should clarify-mostly Sean) got the dining room light up AND running. Doesn't sound like much unless you know how hard it is to figure out 3way or 4way (I don't remember which it is) switches. Meaning the light can be turned on or off by any of three switches Back door, side door and by the french doors. Tricky business. Wires were re-pulled. Brows were furrowed in frustration. And then the epiphany came and lo and behold it worked! YAY! (Thanks Babe!) So now for lights we just need to do the hallway sconces, pantry and laundry room and we should be good to go- oh and the front porch but we don't have a fixture for that yet. Curtain rods are purchased and lying next to me waiting to be put up in the craft room. I'll be sad to see the stapled sheets go but it's time. My sewing machine and serger are now out and ready for use at any given moment. I'm in love with my sewing desk and I'm not ashamed of it. I think it loves me back. The craft room has a floor again- which is more than I can say for the living room. I keep trying to get boxes OUT of there and I think they sense their demise because the boxes are breeding like rabbits (only when no one is looking thank goodness. I'm not ready for THAT discussion with the kids...) We have a phone again which is nice. Oh and chain pulls for the fans- I'm kind of jazzed about them. The dining room has a crystal one (which I had as a kid so it makes me all weird sentimental) and our room has
None of this was exciting to YOU but progress is exciting to us and I'm thrilled that each little thing that gets done is one more step behind us.
Hope you all had a lovely President's Day Weekend.
