Character Building

Well let me just say that the past few weeks have been crazy! Mike and I decided to finally tackle the kids bathroom project (there was a crack in the shower wall and had to be replaced sooner or later). Mike had a few days off and decided it was time. so...he had some fun smashing and ripping out the old tub and surround, then off to Home Depot to buy the new stuff. Of course the new stuff didn't fit (smaller), so to make a long story short...this was going to be a much bigger job than anticipated...ARGHHH! Now it would have to include redoing the pipes and some tiling. Things were going along slowly but surely and then Mike found out that he was chosen for a job that was going to be 12 hours a day/6 days per week. so...the bathroom is pretty much at a standstill. He is working on it here and there and I am hopeful to have the shower working this weekend or next weekend (4 people sharing a bathroom is quite a challenge, to say the least!). The rest of the improvements (vanity, mirror and lighting) will have to go on the back burner until this job is completed and he has a weekend or two to rest.

Now here comes the character building part...with all this craziness going on:
While I was at work yesterday I got a call from Ashley around 1pm...it went something like this: "mom, you are not going to be happy!" What? All the shelves in your craft room completely separated from the wall. WHAT?!!! OK, she was right, mom was not happy. Everything was piled on the floor of my craft room. I ran home to check out the damage (Ashley had already started picking up stuff), I was so relieved that my laptop and camera (that were on my craft table under the shelving) was unharmed. One of the shelves made a tent over it and protected it. Thank you Lord!

So, I guess I am in the process of learning patience (not an easy lesson!). I have a bathroom and craft room in disarray, as well as other rooms of the house holding the overflow of the disarray. I hope I learn the lesson the first time...as Patience is never an easy one *wink*

As most of you know I am a little OCD, so the unorganization around me is somewhat of a challenge! It will all work out...sometime!

Apples are ready for picking in New England, the foliage is coming to peak, Why not get on a plane and visit New England for a couple of days or weeks or as long as you would like to stay. We have a great corn maze in Thompson that would be a fun day! The temps are in the 80's and the gazebo is waiting for you to come for a rest. Mom and the Grouch would love to see you..........and anyone else that wants to tag along with you! I know Tim, Dawn, Gillian and Nathan would be very happy to have you here for a visit. Think about it seriously, a nice little break from all the turmoil!
