I know I haven't posted much lately ~ just so much going on. The situation with the folks upstairs almost got the best of me. Not sleeping, being on edge all the time and constant noise has taken a toll. I found myself doing and saying things last week that is not me at all. Saw the Dr on Friday and he gave me something to help sleep temporarily as well as blood work for my thyroid. So far, I am sleeping better and that's a huge blessing!
The people started moving last Thursday evening. Just to give you a glimpse of their character, they had 2 guys in a truck to help but they threw their furniture off the balcony onto the ground! I heard this whomp, bang, thump and looked out. There was a sofa, a chair, a table, boxes, a mattress, box springs, you name it! This was a first for me. I try so hard to take care of my things...as most people do...and I cannot imagine this. Then they, along with others, were there all day Friday cleaning, banging and doing who knows what. I was in tears by the evening.
We had 2 deaths in our family last week so I have been pretty fragile. I do know I'm a short timer here and that's a HUGE blessing! I'm working so hard on clearing out and organizing before the packing begins. It's amazing to see the things I haven't used and some I've actually forgotten about. These need to go to new homes and bless others.
My apologies for this post being a downer ~ it's just where things are right now. In the midst of all the chaos, I am still grateful! I have so many blessings and my heart and prayers are still with the folks in West, TX and all of those affected by the storms in OK.
I have completed a couple of projects that I will show you soon. I think that painting has begun a form of therapy for me...like cooking and baking. :)
Enjoy your days and be sure and tell your friends and loved ones how much you care. We only have this moment, right now! Will check back in when I can.
