UGH - I think I need a weekend to recover from my weekend! Started out intending to clean the carpets and ended up totally rearranging the living room and starting a mass clean out of the craft room. It's intended to be a dining room I guess, but we either eat in the eat-in kitchen area or the living room - so instead it's where the sewing stuff, model building stuff, two of the fish tanks and Jethro's big-*** crate are -- and where everyone (me included) has gotten in the habit of dumping stuff. Anyway - the carpet in both rooms is clean now (nothing makes you feel better and worse about the state of your home at the same time like seeing the water that comes out of the carpet cleaner.....), and the living room is mostly together but the craft room looks worse than ever and I've run out of steam to finish it just yet. Luckily work is ridiculously generous with their paid holidays so I have Wednesday off (irony? DH is a veteran and works at the state's veteran cemetery -- HE works on Veteran's day........and I get a paid holiday :lau), will *try* to get things finished up then. Next weekend we're going to clean the carpets in all three bedrooms.
DH and DD had the BEST time together - I am so, so, so glad he went.....they are already planning their next visit. They have had some serious ups and downs in their relationship in the last few years, so this makes my heart happier than I can explain.
Your posts are so true! I've slowly replaced all carpet with wood flooring for that reason. Wanted to spend today at the Field of Honor, but too ill. Warms my heart about DH and DD. I get it. You never know what tomorrow brings or doesn't. My father chose suicide. I hadn't spoken to him in 5 years.
