The Mess Lingers

Today is Tuesday, November 24, 2009. It has been cool and cloudy all day. I do think that it is time to dig out the sweatshirts and jackets. Even the oak tree has decided to start dropping leaves, she has decided to rest. We so enjoyed her all summer and the shade that she provided for us.

The mud took almost two days to dry so I didn't get as far as I wanted to in my room. I did get it painted and trimmed out, now to watch the paint dry. Hubby said that he was going to replace the window that is in there and put hardwood floors in. I like hardwood floors, but if I can find the color that I want, thinking of going with carpet. Then to get the shelf/table built.

Young son said to me tonight while I was washing out the paint tools, "want me to help you move that stuff back in there now that it is painted?" No son, the paint has to dry and then the flooring has to get put down, then move the "stuff" back in there. I am thinking that he wants his living room back. Although he has taken mine over including the television. Which is OK because I don't watch it.

Oh is hubby going to be busy the 3 1/2 days that he is going to be home. Firsts things first and that is the oil pump on my Jeep. Oh, not to have to ride with my children, to be able to go somewhere alone, to be able to get groceries without hearing, "what else do we need" while they are throwing items into the cart. Now don't get me wrong, I love my children, I just don't care to be the passenger in their car.

So tomorrow I will go and check on a window and see about flooring. If everything is here, it makes it go so much faster getting it finished up. Still lots to do, but the worst is over. Now if everything goes well, maybe Monday I will be putting things away, organizing and putting all of the pictures and things on the walls and out of boxes.

I will try to get some pictures tomorrow while it is still light outside so that you can see the real colors. It has been so nice to see the three boys "hanging" out together. Didn't see to much of them today, until supper time. LOL

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~


  1. It sounds like your home is coming along! Hardwood floors will be lovely! Yes the trees are resting up here in my neck of the woods too. They must rest so they can bring us the bounty of beautiful green leaves that bloom each spring. By springtime they really look beautiful here and it is a site for sore eyes that long for the green leaves.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
