This and That

We are this close to having the kitchen done and I will be able to do the big reveal. The countertops are in the backsplash is laid and we are just waiting for the grout to be done tomorrow. Hopefully I will be able to publish photos tomorrow. I can't believe we are finally done with it. We still have the windows to be replaced, we will get another estimate Friday and make a decision about who we will go with. I think that's about all we can fit in this summer.

It is hard to believe we will be leaving for Arizona in about nine weeks, seems like we just got home. We don't usually leave this early but we have work scheduled in Red Bay again on the 23rd of October. And since we stopped in Red Bay this spring to have work done it made for a short summer.

I have to admit I am not ready to go. Having to go off of the Nsaids put a real dent in the enjoyment of my summer. There was so much I planned on doing with my sisters, but I just didn't feel up to it. I have to make the most of these last weeks I have. We are going to see Help Sunday, me and my sisters. I am looking so forward to it. I loved the book and so did my sister Louise. It will be a fun thing for us.

We haven't spent near enough time together this summer. We had the shower and that's it, I think we only had one brother and sister breakfast this summer, I have really dropped the ball. I know and they know if I don't plan it, it doesn't happen and I have just not been up to it this summer. I have to get my act together and plan as much as I can for the weeks I have left.

I almost forgot, I got an email from a magazine in Louisiana that want's to use one of my pictures of a restaurant in their monthly issue. I am very excited about that and will share it with you when it is published. Stay tuned for the big reveal tomorrow.....


  1. I can't wait to see your kitchen! I'll bet you are SO ready to be finished with all of it. You've done great, you are still sane and haven't killed anyone so far, so I think you've done an awesome job!

    I surely understand about your pain and lack of planning sister - or any other kind of time. Please don't be so hard on yourself..all we can do is the best we can.

    Big happy hugs, friend. :)

  2. I so understand how you feel. I could have written this post. I have hardly ventured out this summer, in this dreaded heat! I miss my horsies :) But, cooler weather is coming. Hooray!
    Cannot wait to see the pics of your big reveal!!
    And congrats on the pic! How awesome for you!!
    xo, misha

  3. That's nice they want to publish your photo--can't wait to see it in the magazine.

    Personally, I've been inside all summer long. It is cooler this week but more humid. Ugh. I'm afraid my on again off again thing with pain pills also makes me rather apathetic so that I don't mind missing an entire summer. I was thinking last night I need to quit getting mad at myself for taking pain pills because that's just the way it is for now. I tend to want to think I'm doing something wrong but when I'm taking them I wouldn't be able to walk much without them. I say this because I think you might do the same sort of thing, or maybe they just make you feel physically not so good. I'm having to accept they may be a way of life for awhile.

  4. Linda, you are right on. I feel guilty and weak willed when I take them. Most days are just like today, I get up and start the day resolved not to give in and take, so I waste the morning felling awful and crabby and give in about this time and take one anyway. By now the pain has built to a crescendo and the pill only takes the edge off. I keep going round and round fighting the same battle every day. I see the post polio Dr. in a week and a half, I so hope he can help me get my head straight.

  5. Thanks for commenting on my hubby's drawers! ;)

    I'm following - excited about your magazine article in La.

    Looking forward to the great reveal...and I love Izzie - what personality shines though in that pix!
