Life Moves Foward

6 years ago

Life has calmed down now, finally, at least in my head.  As I was driving home from my 3 mile trek on the treadmill this morning I had a good feeling.  I've been in such a tizzy with all the stuff going on lately that I just couldn't calm down.  Daddy is doing well, although bored in his hospital bed, but I know he is healing and safe, and that is what counts.  Right now we don't have to mess around with any of the crap that was going on.  I have someone to clean his house next week, bought the appropiate cleaning supplies, and am now in charge of paying his bills, again.  The mail has been forwarded and the paper stopped.  All is good in that department.  I now have more pressing things to think about, like shopping for a cocktail dress for a charity gala/dance in a couple of weeks.  I am dreading the process and looking for the right shoes that won't kill my feet.  Hopefully, this weekend I will be successful in that endeavour.  (I hate shoe shopping, and shoes for that matter!)  The sun is going to shine this weekend along with warmer weather and I am a happy girl.  I can't wait to do a little painting and be creative again.  With all that has been on my mind I have not had a desire to blog or paint or even read.  I am ready now. 

 

Room addition has been a bit slow, real slow so not much to report.  The brick is slowly moving up the new walls but not fast enough for me but the weather has played a part in that, rain and cold.  Next week the new french doors will be here and be installed and then the brick guy will begin the glass block window.  Woo-Hoo, enclosed!  The heat/air guy has been busy this week getting the old system tied in and now we get a rough-in of plumbing and electrical, then walls!!!!!  The Hubby and I have already purchased the split-system heat/air thing, for just in case the old is not enough to handle.  We've purchased the fixtures, meaning faucets, shower heads.  On Wednesday we looked at washer and dryer sets and believe will get the Electrolux ones.  I told him, color-wise, ANYTHING but white.  He has a white Avalanche, I have a white Jeep, all of our company vans are white and I'm just sick of it.  I want color, maybe green like these, without the pedestals.  I saw a jade granite floor the other day and fell in love.  Maybe for the counter tops.  Now it is the fun stuff.  I'm excited.
