No time to mope! Just replace it with hope!

Ok, what's going on here?!? I'm so ready to work on my reno homework daily, but life isn't cooperating one little bit.

My work is pouring through the woodwork. Everyone seems to need things yesterday. I'm trying to balance it but it's getting tricky.

Cody came home from school sick yesterday. He's back today in an iffy sort of way (anyone that starts their day on the trampoline by 7am is good to go for school I say) but I think it's my turn for the 24 hr whatever he had. Where I'm going to schedule in 'Sick Project' I have no idea.

I ordered my appliances yesterday! YES! A to-do crossed off by a simple phonecall and committment. Know what inspired that one? Rod the gas outfitter guy came by to run my gas line into the kitchen. Talk about calling the appliance place pronto to ensure I till NEED the gas line... Thanks Rod! So great to cross that off the ever growing list! And thanks for the push/reminder!

I've done more purging from the closets for the local thrift store when I had a spare 10 min here or there in between real life. You know when women say, "I don't have a thing to wear?" I think I invented that slogan because it had to have been derived from a truth somewhere. There's a whole lotta empty hangers in my closet. Not to mention 90% of what I do have left are paint clothes. I know Janette, we shall go shopping one day. I'll schedule it in right now... heh heh not. I'm the type that starts in Winners with high hopes but as soon as I see something in HomeSence, I leave shoe skid marks on the floor towards the other direction.

I guess I'll keep chipping away at the mountain of hope. Why is it when you're ready for full speed ahead, your plans shift?!? I don't have the answer to that one yet. So I'll take each day as it comes.

The pro to this? Life is relatively 'exciting'. No time to mope. Just a whole lotta time for hope.

Disclaimer: This post was made in total tongue and cheek reference. I am very blessed to have lots of work. I don't own 'nice clothes' out of pure choice, it's just not my current hobby. I'm blessed to have a healthy child, a good sound home with huge pending potential that is actually moving forward, and the greatest friends to help me continue to achieve in life. We are blessed indeed! Thanks to all that touch our lives every day in some small way. We 'hope' you'll stick around for many years to come!
