The lack of posts is due to being up to my elbows in paint, spackle, and sewing. We have been moving the kids into different rooms. While doing this we decided to put a fresh coat of paint on the walls (furniture also) and add some decorative touches. Then, I was in Home Depot today and they had closet organizers clearanced. I am always a sucker for anything that helps us get more organized. Yet, it is one more item to add to our ever growing list.
After we get done with the inside chores we will work on getting the garden back in shape. A bit late for this area but hey, eating fresh grown tomatoes
are just as good in August as they are in July.
Pictures will be coming soon!
As for the rest of our day...well, I took the van down to the auto shop where they will be fixing the dent on the front end. This was the result of an accident that occured while Eric was in the hospital. It will take them a week to get this fixed.
I got a call from our friend who is buying the pool business. The business truck's transmission is going! What is it with transmissions?
I felt a bit overwhelmed by paying the bills last night. I am actually rather calm about the money issues...I know that the Lord will provide. I am more concerned about being able to juggle all these new chores. It is amazing to think that I now need to plan school, keep the kids motivated, train and disciple them, teach piano, manage the house, take care of the cars, the yard and the finances, and also feed the family. Whew!
There are times when I can't help but thinking "what were you thinking God?" I should have been taken and Eric should have stayed here to take care of all these things. He was so good at doing everything well. When I would go away he would have the laundry done, the house cleaned, the kids bathed, the kitchen counter tops dismantled and re-tiled! All in a 24 hr period. I am not kidding when I say that he ran circles around us all.
The guy was the incarnation of Tigger.
Tomorrow is a big day as we change all of the pool accounts and business "stuff" over to our friend's name. Oh, and there will be a bit more painting and organizing before the day is done.
