So...a recap. I moved the bookshelf from the dining room into the living room and reloaded it with books. I moved my dresser (which was TIm's grandmother's) into the dining room to use as a sideboard. I love it! (and I hid more books in it) I moved Nick's chest of drawers (which was MY grandmother's) into my room and reloaded it with my clothes and found homes and put the very heavy television way up on top. If I'd known I was going to do all that I might not have chosen yesteday to do a set of squats. I also carried things up and down the steps to the basement.
I thought I would sleep great last night and I did for a couple of hours but then I had to get up and take Tylenol. LOL I suddenly realized that Tuesday is quickly upon me and I have to figure out table decorations for the Presbyterian Luncheon on Tuesday. I have to take Tim's mom to the doctor today. Michael has after school detention (he was late for class three times this year..twice on the same day lol he has lunch in the middle of class..isn't that crazy?) so I have to pick him up later. Suddenly, I who was just bragging that my thoughts never keep me awake at night, was being kept awake by my thoughts.
Thank God for the internet. I got up at 3, made a cup of tea and googled table decorations. I found pictures that matched some ideas I already had so that made me feel better. I'll pick up some stuff today sometime.
At least I woke up to a newly decorated house this morning. I really like it. It feels good and balanced. It feels like a true representation of me. Maybe the reason I don't lke to do things until Tim is gone is that I could never stand to be watched during the process (by anyone) because I don't like for things to be judged while I'm trying them out. I will put 10 things in the same space before I settle on one if I'm alone. If someone is watching me, I don't do that. I just settle for something.
I also can't stand to be asked "what are you doing?" why are you doing it that way?" "Wouldn't it make more sense to do it THIS way?"
Well, anyway. I am happy with what I've accomplished. There is a lot more to do. My bedroom became the dropoff point for everything that got cleaned out of a room so I'll have to figure out places for that stuff.
But not today. If I wreck my back, I'll have a heck of a time getting Lois in and out of bed to take her to the bathroom. I'll be glad to get this Drs appointment over with. Taking her places is a real circus.
My coffee's ready so I'm going to grab a cup and wander around the internet a bit. Lots of love to all of you.
May God be with the families and friends involved in the fire in New York this morning.
Also send out a few prayers and hugs to my glitter sister Pam who had to make a tough decision about her dear companion, a greyhound named Lobo.
I am going to be part of the spring giveaway..well, not me but something I make-teehee- but I haven't decided just what yet. Probably a spirit doll, if that sounds good to you guys. I'll try to get that more concrete later today.
Ok..I'll let ya go now. Bye. :)
