This has been a long and exhausting week. With being at work earlier than usual every day this week, running back home to be here for repairmen and then working from home until my work day ended and trying to stay on top of all the decisions that had to be made, I'm definitely ready for the weekend.
Not complaining, because I've been blessed with be able to continue to work from home, you justdont't have everything at your finger tips, then our phones went out, which meant relying on email with the office to get certain things completed. It's been a crazy week.
Yesterday the person doing all the repairs to the walls finished, he even painted the walls, which at some point I will need to repaint as he used the standard "pinky beige" that homebuilders use...it's really not a nice color...but at least the walls are finished and look nice and clean. After work Garry and I headed to the city to place our order for the new carpet. Blessing...we will be able to have the same carpet throughout the basement instead of different types and colors. We chose a "carmel" color (that's Garry's name for it) It's actually called "brass". Eventually the walls will be a cream color, so it should look very nice.
Today we are going to see if we can find the same or similar replacement furniture and then let the insurance company know. Things look good for being returned to normal around here by mid May at the latest.
I woke up to snow again yesterday morning and we are supposed to get more yet again on Sunday. Temperatures have dropped down to below zero again. Next week is warmer though, so am hanging onto the thought of warmer weather and sunshine. Anyone want to trade weather systems?????
Things are progressing repair wise at the house.
Being able to take off from work and continue to work from home.
Understanding co-workers and bosses.
Choosing new carpets and color.
Knowing that the chaos in my house is only temporary.
God who teaches me patience and tolerance.
Have a wonderfully blessed weekend. It's silly Saturday, so share some humor and thanks for stopping by for a visit.
