Thanks to those of you who've been thinking of me, praying for me and asking how things are going. The prospective buyer for my mom's house who we thought might buy it 'as-is' didn't take it, so we are in the throws of doing lots of repairs. We are completely remodeling the kitchen, as well as doing other drywalling, spackling, painting, etc. I'd appreciate any prayers about the whole thing - we are trying to do as much work as we can, as quickly as we can so we can get it listed, and then we need a buyer!!
We went from all the wedding hub-bub of last weekend, into the house situation this week, had a conference we had to attend on Friday & Saturday, have another training conference we are attending on Thurs through Saturday this coming weekend...somewhere in there we are doing school, work, and trying to remember to sleep and breath!! I have to say, my husband has been more than understanding, helpful and generous with me. Anything that isn't an absolute necessity has been getting neglected - (like folding clean laundry, cooking, grocery shopping, etc.) We've consumed more pizza in the last 2 weeks than I care to admit. And one other thing - I couldn't be doing any of this or getting through all the craziness without my precious sister. We work so well together; alone I feel like I can't complete my thoughts and ideas. We often say we share a brain. It seems like together we can tackle about anything, so I'm so grateful that we are in all this together.
While it's been an extremely stressful time (I've had pain in my shoulders for going on 2 weeks straight; it did relax for about a day around Tuesday, but returned on Wed or Thurs again) it's been completely bearable being in it with those who love me and that I love most!! I'm so blessed to have wonderful, caring, helpful family and friends. Of the many things I am feeling, alone is definitely NOT one of them!
