Considering how things are going, I haven't had time to get around to visiting all of you and/or visit with any consistency; therefore, this post is mainly to reach out to each and everyone of you saying hello, and to let you know I'm thinking of you; particularly those of you I haven't reached yet.
Update, the kitchen-remodel is one I wish we hadn't began! We've had to move up the work date and delivery dates by a couple of days because I did not anticipate how much preparation time it would take before the work could start. I am still packing and trying to find places to store things I'm determining to keep, and I still have to decide on and purchase flooring and wall tiles. Between praying, crying, and expelling a few choice words I wouldn't normally use, I'm a wreck!!! Disregarding my bathrooms, my kitchen is one of the smallest rooms in my home and I can't imagine I've packed sooooo much stuff in one teeny-tiny space and causing me so much frustration!
An example of how bad things are going, the other night I was so tired I broke down and literally threw a tantrum accusing my hubby of this all being his fault. Thank GOD he laughed at and overlooked me. What a great stress-reliever that was because I ended up laughing at myself too. Unfortunately, my son didn't think it was so funny when he came to help and I got "snippy" with him; but, of course, he understood and has forgiven me. Seriously, this is turning me into a maniac!!! I'm not liking myself very much right now.
In the meantime -- and between -- I completed a project to share (aaaah, my crafting -- another stress reliever). This project came about when I saw my aunt's address/phonebook which was small, so worn she could hardly read it, and was held together by rubber bands. Of course to me that meant making her a new one. Here it is:
I added a page on the inside that shows all her emergency numbers (I did not picture this page as, understandably, it's completed with the names and numbers), and alpha-tab pages for her to add her own additional information, and a page to write notes. Here are pictures of the inside pages:
I even made the last back page to match:
I did all the pages in WordPerfect. As quick and easy as it was, I'm so pleased with how it turned out -- but a problem is that she'll be as pleased and won't want to use it!!! LOL!!! Knowing her, she'll want to wrap it in tissue and only pull it out for "show"!!! Maybe I should start on a plain and ordinary one she'll actually use, huh? LOL!
Again, I know I'm behind on visiting and commenting but, unfortunately, it's not going to be any better until my work is done. So, please hang in here with me as you've always done -- oh yea, say a little prayer for me too... LOL!!!
Well, I'm off again. Still got packing and shopping to do, so I'll be back when I can. Hugs and love to you all, and...
Thanks for stopping by. I'll be seeing you!
