In case anyone was wondering….
Yes. We are working on it. No. It’s not built yet.
It would be nice if I had time to just work on it until it’s finished, but, life keeps interfering. Lol
We do have the sides and most of the trim painted, sanded, and painted again. There are several pieces that we’re just not sure what color they’re supposed to be.
My husband suggested we go ahead and start building, and paint those pieces as we figure out what they are.
This really is fun, although sometimes my patience runs a little thin. Short periods of time working on it with a 5 year old seem to be best. She really loves this project!
I couldn’t believe my nails still looked good as much scrubbing as it took to get the paint off! I really thought I’d have to redo them!
So, today our Dr said my husband has COPD.
I somewhat know what it is, guess is better do some research.
During a conversation today with a new friend, the phrase ‘God never gives you more than you can handle’ was said. I had to disagree with her, and pointed out that I believe God provides the strength you need to get through.
That small part of the conversation keeps going through my mind. So, here I am writing. 😁
She was right – God doesn’t give more than I can handle because all the crap doesn’t come from God! God didn’t make my son fall asleep at the wheel and end up in a wheelchair with a TBI. But, God was there, and my son is still alive and continuing to have improvements even after 6 years!
God isn’t giving my husband increased problems with his breathing and blood pressure. God didn’t give my other adult children the crap problems going on that I don’t want to discuss at this time. God hasn’t caused my water heater to leak, or my water softener to be messing up worse every week or all the problems showing up with my car. (Yes, I’m really starting to feel overwhelmed with all the things breaking down!)
But, God is here. Holding me up and giving me strength to get through each day. (I could use a lot more patience though, God, if you’ve got time for that request. 😉)
God is here, giving me hope that things will improve. The psalm says though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil. It doesn’t say set up camp and live there. I am moving on through to the other side!
Did anyone else pick a word for 2018?
I love decorating!!!
Actually, I don’t really like all the work. It’s a pain in the booty!
But, I do love the way my house looks when it’s finished!
We’re almost finished! Just have a few wall hangings and finishing touches left.
Oh, and need to finish packing and storing Halloween decorations that are stashed in a corner! I keep forgetting about that corner….
Really don’t have anything to say, just trying to get into habit of posting here consistently.
Had my coffee on the front porch this morning, it was so nice out!
Got some laundry done, but, most of the day was spent out on the front porch, just relaxing and enjoying family time.
I miss my photography, and since oldest son is doing so much better, my husband and I decided it’s time to get that up and running again. So I did whip up a reopening special advertisement this afternoon.
More laziness this evening, but, I did open up my planner and have part of the upcoming week wrote down.
My oldest son was finally released from all hospitals, and we were able to come home.
It really is mind boggling how life can completely change in just an instant.
5 years. We are still trying to find what ‘normal life’ is.
They haven’t been here in 5 years, and it’s been about 4 since I’ve been there, so we’re cramming in as much family time as possible!!
Has anyone played the card game, Exploding Kittens? It’s crazy! And the cards are hilarious!! I promise, it’s not as gory as it sounds.
So much has been happening in the last several months!!
We got a new papillon puppy named Trixie! I picked her up the day I earned my Pink plus 3 promotion with Perfectly Posh. I also paid for her with my Posh pay! Yes, I’m pretty proud of that.
My oldest son has been seeing a new Dr, in addition to his usual Dr, and has had several improvements.
My middle son has his own home (not sure if I’d mentioned that here) He has also broken up with his girlfriend of several years. I’m only mentioning that because so many posts involved her.
My youngest son is now helping out his grandpa on weekdays, and doing schoolwork in evenings.
Munchkin is now in dance class, and loving it!
My Amazing Posh Angels team is up to 95! I am truly humbled,thankful, and completely in shock over how well my Posh biz is going! I am seriously having the time of my life!
Perfectly Posh has been making my house insurance payment since January. I’ve also been able to hand cash over to my son to go get clothes between regular paychecks (if you’ve ever lived paycheck to paycheck, you know what I mean!) It’s also about to start paying for dance lessons for this little cutie! (She’s so excited!! Who am I kidding? So am I!!! )
What could Perfectly Posh do for you?
