Note* Just a FYI - This blog may not make any sense to you if you have not read my previous 2 blogs/posts. I am doing kind of journal style and one blog picks up where the last one left off - well at least for these past 3 blogs I am :)
So tomorrow (monday) is D-Day. The day I am spilling the beans to the team about hub. I am looking forward to it in some ways & in other dreading it. It's like a big wound I have that I know will feel better after it is stitched up ;)
Cleaning & Organizing Day 2. I made a lot of progress today! To walk in my home right now one would not think I spent over 10 hrs today "cleaning". I am making a mess to clean up a bigger mess lol
But I have all my fall decor packed away & am ready for winter decor. I decorate our home differently for summer, fall, Christmas & then winter. Adding small changes here and there for the smaller in-between holidays like St.Pat's V-day etc. This winter the living room which is the room I do most of the decor in will be done in branches with dried cranberries and white love birds and red cardinals sitting on them. Red candles and winter silk/fake flower arrangements. I make all my own flower arrangements & buy the flowers and such on clearance sales the year before for a fraction of the normal cost. Also the 1.00$ store has nice dried pieces that I add some times. At Jo-Ann Fabrics I got a wicker wall basket last year for 6.00 that had been 57.00 !!!
Any ways.... now comes the hard part in more ways then what I face tomorrow. Over the past 1 1/2 yrs. I have made a few attempts to do my home before & with my back situation I get so far and then go down! So I fear that will happen again. Our home returns to a mess when I go down as hub won't keep it up even with doing the basic stuff.
BUT this time I am using heat packs on my back, wearing my back brace the whole time, take a LOT more breaks and not pushing past the pain like I use to force myself to do.
I am working about 30 to 45 minutes then resting for 10 to 20 before I go back at it.
I am listening to my MP3 (not allowed to play music any more where hub can hear it), praying as I go, burning sage and doing ALL I can to stay upbeat!
*note In the past hub will get me really upset & I quit & give up my efforts. So this time I was ready for it - nah nah!
Please pray, send good energy or what ever is your God thing to do that I can complete it this time.
I keep picturing me walking in my front door & seeing everything DONE! I can see it! I can smell it! I can feel the great energy from it! :)
