A BROKEN LEG! DAY 289

LEARN TO BE CALM AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY!
No it's not my leg or any humans. During our renovation, we had moved our dining room table away from the door while the new one was being put in. Last night, as I was walking past it I decided to push it back. We have a 2 pedestal table. One of the legs got caught on the tile and completely broke off. And that side of the table fell off onto the floor! Just what I needed. I've been thinking about getting another one but not just yet. Now I have the dilemna of having it repaired or throwing it out. Actually, it is a mahogany Georgian table that we purchased while we lived in England in the 70's. So it was custom made and beautilful. However, it has really taken a beating from my kids doing their homework, a spilled water glass that took off the finish, and me cutting fabric on it and creating marks all over it. I think we paid $450 or pounds for it, not sure which but it certainly doesn't owe us any money. I guess I can stop thinking about drapery fabrics for now as the table takes precedent.
Today I have a visit from my regional director. I hope she is coming to see me and not the house. EVeryday we do a little bit more. Move a pile from here, throw it out or put it away somewhere. Hope I can find it when I need it. I have found myself getting rid of plenty of knickknacks. Stuff you collect over the years. Stuff you don't need. HOpe no body gives me any knick knacks for christmas. I need a new nightie instead.
