House is Lookin' Good

Thursday, October 18, 2012

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.

    emoticon I feel the same way......since having my life turned upside down and trying to get re-established back in Canada, I noticed that when my house was not organized, my life way as mess. Last fall I started organizing, cleaning every nook and cranny, and once I started to get things how I wanted in the house I started to feel happier and more at home in my house which lead to things in life settling down some. I am still working on things too, just like you, but we can do it!!!!!!
