Good morning! How was your weekend? Were you lucky enough to get to the beach, out in the mountains to relax, to a BBQ or whatever else you like to do? I cannot believe it is September, it seems as if just yesterday we were talking about Spring.
I know that people read blogs to “escape”life, their own and the world around them but sometimes life is messy and at this point mine feels messy in more ways than one. Skip this post of you don’t want a little of my real life.
My weekend was a jumble of tasks and emotions. Our house is in a bit of a shambles because we are having a mudroom remodeled on one side of the house, and an en-suite bathroom on the other(in preparation of my MIL visiting for 3 weeks). Everything from the mudroom is in the family room and everything from the in-laws suite, is in the dinning and living room. Boxes of tile, a vanity, and tools are littering the dining and living room. At this point it seems as if the only rooms in the house that are clean and in order are on the second floor and the kitchen.
I feel a bit of an emotional wreck; yesterday afternoon, my good friend of 25 years called to give me some news about the illness that she has suffered from the last 2 years. I am hopeful, apprehensive, afraid and I want to jump on the next plane to be by her side. I have alternated between, worrying, crying, praying and everything in between.
For now we are preparing for a tropical storm that could tun into a hurricane, we are bracing ourselves for high winds and lots of rain, gathering supplies and hunkering down.
What about you? How is your week?
