This is my nickname to some. I take it as a compliment. These last couple of weeks I have been on a little hiatus from life. I’m tired, a little broken. But the projects have continued. Even when I was a kid I would rearrange my bedroom, shoving around my furniture as best I could and moving around the pictures on the walls. This always made me feel better. Like I had a brand new room. My little 10 X 10 living room has been moved around approximately 60 or 70 times. That’s just a guess, it could be more. As I write this I’m glancing around thinking it’s time again, but I will hold off for today.
When we got the call that Manny’s trailer had to be done in a week we were headed home from Ikea. This was going to be my project year. The year I finally got everything “just how I have wanted it”. The car was full of my new Ikea closet, a new bed with under-the-bed storage, blinds, lights, etc. So all of these things have been on hold for a while, sadly sitting in boxes. You may remember that I posted last month that I was working on my bedroom re-do. That also came to a screeching halt.
So now that Manny is settled, it’s on! The closet is together and wonderful! The bed is put together and all of the cardboard boxes have disappeared. Today, while listening to my “girl power” station I hung the blinds.
In addition, the week that we built Manny’s trailer, things fell apart in our’s. Our bathroom faucet broke, shooting water all over our bathroom. Five light-bulbs went out – all specialty bulbs of course. A light switch broke. The handle to the refrigerator broke off. The dishwasher is going out on us. The list goes on. If I believed in curses, I might have thought we had one.
So, as I am healing I am also healing my little home. We are doing much better. 🙂 So now I’m off to paint the bedroom while I wait for my new refrigerator to show up.
