I’ve really enjoyed the last two months with Josh and the boys. It’s hard to believe it’s been two months since our last foster children left.
The boys and I have been in a pretty good routine with pool days, a little school work, keeping the house
clean livable, and the normal church commitments.
When I was a child, I can remember moving my bedroom furniture around several times a year. Dresser, desk, and bed. I always did it by myself. Never asked permission. I liked little changes that felt like something new. I don’t know why our flesh longs for newness so often. Why can’t we just be content with “the same”? Ironically, I’m not fond of big change; only small.
Lately, I’ve been craving some small changes around my house. I’d really like to get in the garage and tear it to pieces. Our shelves have lost their organization, my “laundry station” is a wreck, and apparently the garage floor has recently become the place to throw things when the door bell rings and you weren’t expecting company, so you throw the big stuff into the garage and the rest goes in a closet! I’ve been wanting to paint my china hutch white and change out the old bronze hardware for elegant, crystal knobs and pulls from Hobby Lobby. I’m thinking if I buy one knob a week with my 40% off coupon, I’ll be able to finish the hutch by next summer! HAHA!
My living room is boring me as well. It’s so dark. The walls are khaki colored, my window treatments are brown, my couches are brownish, and of course my carpet is brown. Yuck! I do like brown, but the walls need to be more exciting. I don’t really have any ideas yet…partly because there will be a lot of furniture to move and seven window panels to take down before I could even get started.
I recently purchased some really great throw pillows from ROSS for $5.99/each. They are cream and brown zebra stripes and the fabric is raw silk, which makes them a little dressier than the poor, abused pillows that came with our couches.
One of the biggest issues I have with
my husband our house is unfinished projects. I just need to start tackling them one at a time, starting with the smallest, which at the moment would be my bathroom.
Well, I rambled on much longer than I anticipated. The bottom line is, I would like for most things in my life right now to stay the same, but I’m ready for some little changes.
Now, it’s 2:00am. I had two glasses of sweet tea at dinner and here I am, wide awake at 2:00 in the morning. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??
My best friend from high school/college is getting married in ten hours…more on that later.
good night…or shall I say morning.
