I woke up very early this morning to head off for work early, then listened to the traffic report. I can leave at 7a and get there at 930a, or I can leave at 9a and get there at 10a. I decided against sitting in my car and opted to blog instead. Blogging, something I don't feel like I have time for anymore. The one thing that reminds me how fun life can be has been scratched off my list of fun-things-to-do. No time for IF, Studio Friday, Photo Friday, Inspriration Thursday. Work and guilt for not being there completing a big project on my days off are consuming me. You know how bad things come in 3's or 7's ... and I have reached my 7th. I keep in mind, God will not give you more than you can handle and trying to take some comfort in that.
Rain is coming down and high winds are on their way. Grey, dark and gloomy. I have been scrambling the last couple of days to get the leak in the rood fixed, finally did yesterday. I am hoping they found the leak, waiting to see if any water is trickling down the wall. Am getting an estimate to have the roof done soon. Fans are working to dry it all out. The contractor has been notified to come give me the price of the damage. I also took the pumpkins and all of the damaged drywall to the dump, washed off the slippery moss from the front stairs with a brush, fixed the vacuum cleaner and finally vacuumed up the mess. While I was focusing on the carpets, spot-cleaned little accidents and kid's messes. Managed to get some packages off to dear friends. Grocery shopped, made many business calls I needed to make. All yesterday while I should have gone into work on my day off. I am feeling very stretched these days. The studio is stacked sky-high with wet stuff from the furnace room, where all the water ended up and I want to get started on our Christmas cards. It will all come back together in time and patience.
Thanksgiving is coming! I love a Thanksgiving gathering with friends. Something to look forward to!
