The floor is almost done! I put the baseboards up this past weekend. Now I have to caulk and paint them. It promises to be more back breaking work. That is ok because I love my floor!
I need to finish the threshholds but that is another ‘special order’ item. It may be a while before I get to put them in.
I also finished the body of Ruby Red this weekend. Then I tried it on, and it fit like a glove… but it made me look like a red dishwasher. Into the frog pile it goes! I don’t need clothes that remind me of appliances. Don’t worry, I made so many mistakes on this sweater that I feel good about ripping it out.
In other news, thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. I am moving onto the acceptance phase of grief. I feel so much better that it is getting easier to not dwell on the might-have-beens. My house hasn’t looked this good since BC was born. I have tons of energy and I don’t seem to need as much sleep as I used to. I’m also looking forward to some of the challenges that I couldn’t deal with before. So, in the here and now, things are really good.
