I've been MIA lately...however, "A: stands for action and there's been a lot of it!
The entire first floor of the house has a new coat of paint...well, all but the laundry room...I ran into a bit of a problem...more on that later.
I could tell you about all the things that have happened, but this would be an even longer post than the missing one that I just found.
It's New Year's Eve and I'm even more anxious to begin 2010 than I was 2009. As 2009 began I was facing all the details of my divorce. As this year ends there are only two loose ends left...the largest being the sale of the house. I have full confidence that by June 2010 the three of us will be in a new home. We are very excited about the prospect of making a new place a home.
Painting this month has been extremely therapeutic. Last winter's painting project was very hard emotionally. But now, painting was about making the house that had been so good to us feel warm and welcoming to someone new who we hope will love it and enjoy it as much as we did. I should try to take daylight photos tomorrow.
There was a time when on New Year's Eve there would've been a recap. Not tonight. Instead, there's a whole lotta reading that needs to be done. Actually, my Bloglines count passed the 800 mark. So, if you happen to be here because I left a comment on your post from anytime in the past 3-4 months...you now know why.
And why is it that I now have time to catch up on reading? My knee was introduced to a bit of concrete pavement thanks to a bit of glare ice yesterday. There will NOT be any painting during my extended holiday weekend. This month began with a trip to the emergency room and probably should've ended the same way...but Dr. Mom thinks it'll be fine with a bit of rest.
Instead, let's remember something more positive...a month that began with a beautiful full moon. And, is ending with another full moon...a blue moon...the only one on New Year's Eve for nineteen years (according to my Mom and Yahoo News). Blue moons are special to me, my youngest was conceived during the blue moon of June 1996. (There's NO chance for that tonight!!)
Happy 2010!!! Let the moving begin!!!
