I Need Some Cheese... go with my whine.

NaBloPoMo is way harder this year than it has been in the past for me. (Or maybe I just have selective memory?) I'm sure that you all are sick of hearing about the flood and the floors. Believe me, I'm sick of it too. I know that I'm "first-world whining" but I'm over the cracked cement floor, the exposed carpet tack strips, the dust. OMG the dust. I know that with putting down wood floors it will get worse before it gets better, but I really, really, really just want to see some progress. Today I had to sweep, vacuum, and mop just to get some of the dust off of the floors. My feet, (I'm a barefoot gal while I'm home,) are filthy unless I'm wearing tennis shoes. I can barely get into my living room to open the shades in the morning. I'm constantly stepping on the tack strips and occasionally pricking my toes when I'm not being careful. I want the holes in the walls to be gone. I should paint the walls that I want painted so I don't have to worry about drips on the new floors. (Can someone make the rest of my life go away for a day or two so I can make that happen?) Somehow we need to get to the carpet store to get carpet ordered for my daughter's room. Not yet sure when that's gonna happen. And do you remember what I wanted to do this fall? Yep. That would be finishing painting my bedroom since I did the bathroom last June. Now it's looking like I won't get back to that until next summer. Gah!

All of that to say, hey, have a great weekend, gang. I'm sure gonna try!

This move that we just made seemed "hard" to me too - - - sometimes overwhelming. Then I remembered the Barrio in Costa Rica and it restored my perspective. I need my perspective restored frequently.

Perhaps going back and looking at this post of mine will help you see what you have to be thankful for, which will make you see those concrete floors and even the dust as the blessings they really are.

I do not preach - - - I share that which I have to remind myself daily.

Love you - - - we're all in this big old crazy world together.

It's okay to whine. Surely things could be worse but when your going through the shit that is often hard to see. Keeping you in my thoughts.

Hey I am a good painter, (well decent) let me know if you need some help. It is like washing dishes; always more fun with two :)
