On the inside my house is starting to look good. Today I'm putting up yet another shelving unit. and cleaning my room. Maybe hanging some curtains.
Yesterday I got my heating system installed. SO excited about it. The heaters are working very well and I am sure it will result in a happier family this winter. I have installed a total of 3 book cases in the office and it wasn't enough, so up goes #4 today. So excited to see the office and the living room almost done. In the living room I'm removing the recliner to my room once I make a new home for it. In the end the spaces should have a great feeling.
I can't tell you what a relief it is to just get those spaces done. I feel like I wouldn't be completely embarrassed anymore if someone came over.
This has gotten me thinking about myself, because I like to use my house as a metaphor for me (which is so appropriate). When I first got here to KY. I had people making suggestions about how to move forward on the house still do. My plans went out the window. I had lost my center, I was frantic and frankly a mess. Now I am finding some of that peace again.
I've realized that while my house was in chaos so was I. As I start to re-establish some order in my home, I can do that in my life too. I'm gonna make a new monthly budget, I'm gonna get back to my goals of learning more about my not so new, "new" area. Doing family activities on the weekend. Where I am today is where I wanted to be last year. It just took me longer to get here. It will be that way with my weight loss too. I know I'll get there. it just may take me longer to get there.
