Holiday? I could use a holiday....

Whew....I am tired. Everything but Robb's books are here in the house and it is about 45 percent organized. It's probably more like 80 percent organized, but the 45 percent that doesn't fit anywhere is really clogging up the system. I am toying with having a garage sale on Friday because quite frankly, until some of this stuff is outta here, I can't really do anything else. The garage is STUFFED.

This little house is an interesting phenomena for me. It has actual closets. We've never lived anywhere that had actual closet space before...except maybe our first apartment, which had a bigger closet than it had a kitchen....Anyway, it is intersting to have things put away that I used to have "out." Turns out, I do still remember that I have bills to pay even if they aren't on my keyboard.

There is still so much to do that I am a little blue. It's nice to see our stuff again. ...some things I longed for and some I totally forgot about. It is nice to have a "canvas" to create on. But I am so tired. I am lonely too. I think that seeing our stuff again reminds me of my old life...my old friends. How I miss them. I feel like I am suspended over time and space right now and trying desperately to worm my way back into something that feels normal. I miss church. I miss it desperately. Which is handy since the first preview service for Vintage is in (GULP) TWO WEEKS! Yikes...so much to do...Yes...I am tired. I feel this internal deadline to have this house in working order before Vintage begins.

So Robb is working today and I am cooking an enormous slab of meat. Vin just scraped all the skin off his nose (falling on the driveway) and all three of these kids are just wiped out from playing their brains out with the kids next door. (I LOVE THE KIDS NEXT DOOR). So, I 'm going to work in the yard while they take naps and try to get something else accomplished. I think I'm gonna need some more caffeine...

I'm quitting tomorrow, though. I bought the 1/2 caff coffee. Time to fight the addiction.

hey dear..
not like I know anything..but..you will have much more success doing ONE thing at a time.
Get settled in your house,
Have garage sale,
start Church
adopt another kid
THEN start working on addictions.

quitting something brings on huge stressors of their own. Do you really HAVE to quit RIGHT NOW?? do you need MORE stress in your life....anyway..
just thoughts.

Yes, you are correct, my dear. Woke up with migraine. Will need to drink two pots instead of one....

No more babies unless I get a bigger house. It's like you and my husband are in cahoots or something. It's even like you are a family recruiter or something....sheesh.

Can't get rid of pile of boxes in my living room until something is gone from the garage. It's eo tight there are vintage clothes in my chest freezer. And the boxes in the living room really HAVE to go. Charleigh has begun unpacking them...
