Jesse left this morning, not for work, but for a ski vacation with friends. She managed to wrangle an invitation from a family at our church whose oldest daughter backed out of the trip at the last minute. The trip came at a good time and Jesse will have a good time.
Today is art. Last week no one came to art due to the big snow/ice storm. I am ready to see my girls who keep me entertained and laughing. This evening there is an Art Guild meeting that I may or may not attend. There is line dancing class tonight, which gives me incentive to go to the AG meeting and then hotfoot it over to line dancing. We will see.
Tomorrow I have my new painting friends coming over to paint at my house. It does mean serious house cleaning. I am a bit freaked, but I did invite them. We just live so differently. They live in nice homes and discuss hiring or have hired decorators to do their homes. I built my house with my own hands. If I did not hire a homebuilder, why would I hire a home decorator? My house is so different. It is very small, but we do have plans to build on. It is not finished – no trim work, no closet doors, no cabinets, etc. But we do have plans to finish it. We did get the barn built, and we will get the house built. If I waited until it was all finished and beautiful to invite people over, I would be a lonely lady. My house is a part of who I am – a work in progress.
I’m not actually freaked by letting these ladies see my unfinished house, although it is like letting them see the unfinished me. No, I’m more freaked by the amount of cleaning I need to do between now and then. Better get at it!
