I want to start out by apologizing I have been in a blogging slump there are pictures and notes on what to write but they have just sat there unnoticed. I have chosen wisely or not to allow myself to feel this way, not panic just go with the one day at a time motto. Sobriety allows me to feel all kinds of things good or bad to be patient, life is a journey accept it. I am travelling back and forth to Salt Lake City as my sister is very ill with cancer. Vail is only six hours from SLC so I drive with the baby bulldog in the front seat as my co-pilot the trip gives me time to think. After returning home from treatment life has been put one foot in front of the other kind of thing. But somehow the fog is starting to lift slightly I am starting to get excited about a few things maybe even enjoy my self somewhat.
Since my house didn’t sell last year I made the decision to wait for my daughter to graduate from high school. I feel calmer not in such a hurry to make things happen. Funny enough things work out maybe not the way you want or planned but if you have faith they work out for the better. Heads up Ikea has amazing cacti for very little money and they are robust and so pretty.
My boiler is old and failing so I made the painful decision to replace it who wants to do that?? Potential buyers don’t get as excited about brand new boilers as they do bathrooms and kitchens ( the women at least don’t) but hopefully I will have a husband that falls in love with my state of the art boiler room.
I have posted about Johan my South African roommate but what I didn’t tell you is he loves to work on houses it gives him a sense of accomplishment. By all means I want Johan to be happy so he is doing great things to the house. First Remi’s room has been painted (by Johan) and he and I went to Ikea for furnishings also for her room.
I pushed the cart and he shopped she is absolutely in love with her room and so am I. Second the garage has never been painted or really cleaned correctly the ex husband didn’t do handy work but hired incompetent people for less money need I say more.
I can’t believe it even on the floor shelves are coming and I am in love. This is going to be amazing for resale and for my state of mind. I am now motivated to plant flowers spruce the house up and tackle the bathrooms. I posted earlier this year about bathroom renovations, I remember writing that post and thinking that it really needed to be done to my home but I could not wrap my head around the work it would involve.The bathrooms are being remolded when the boiler gets done. My summer it seems will be long enjoyable trips to home depot and Ikea instead of Europe or Mexico.
One year today I started blogging what a gift it has been.
