On thy grave the rain shall fall
from the eyes of a mighty nation! -Thomas William Parsons

Our days of heavy lifting and endless toil seem to be slowing down some.  The new "French Toast" color carpet is laid and the new wood floors in the den have been installed with my extra rug on it for now.  It is going to take some time to get rested again.  It has been somewhat tense from time to time during all this, and I'm amazed we haven't gotten a divorce yet.  Rest is helping frayed nerves and getting our things back where they sort of belong is a good direction.  My hubby is planning a garage sale and I'm all for it.  The rooms look so much larger without all that furniture.  At one point I was ready to move.  We already had everything packed up.  It just seemed like the right thing to do, but we didn't.  Sometime soon I'll be back with something to post, but right now this is going to be it for tonight.  The yard got part of my attention this evening and the bed is calling.

The old and the new

We are still clearing out closets and furniture around here so the new flooring can be put down.  We finished cleaning my in-laws big house and I'm finished with the little one.  If he wants to do more he is welcome to it.  I'm tired of cleaning houses and clearing brush.  The upside is the realtor thinks there is a chance of getting some offers soon.   They have had two open houses and private showings, too.  Maybe, I'll go back over.  Nah...this house must be clear for new flooring by next Wednesday when the carpet and wood arrive.  We will be busy as beavers until next Saturday sometime...or later.

Some of my friends on facebook have been really sad the past few months.  They have good reason, but it is time to pull up.  I love them and want to have them in my life for the rest of it.  This little pinterest is so true.
