I’ve accepted the fact that there’s just no way I can have a clean house while work commences and sawdust is flying ! Every time I attempt to dust or organize I have to empty yet another closet so Scott can build shelves. It’s amazing how much junk is stuffed into my coat closet , and boy does it spread out when it’s transferred to the pool table. Do we ‘really’ need ALLLLLL those coats??
And, Ah Ha! That’s where I stored allll those dishes! Yep! This house will likely not be neat and tidy until our belongings are packed, sold or donated and the house is staged to sell. I have surrendered to the mayhem that is my life! Sooooo , today I decided I could at least carve out a tiny bit of a semblance of neatness outside. Don’t worry, when I say ‘outside’, I don’t mean anywhere near Scott’s ‘man-cave’ (also known as his workshop!). That area is where the magic is happening! When I say ,’ Magic’, I mean cabinetry! He’s cranking out the most amazing custom drawers and cabinets and woodwork that makes me , at times, forget ( well, maybe not forget exactly!),but temporarily eases the pain of the unending dust and mess that is our home! Today I claimed my patio’s around the house and the front yard. I swept and trimmed and raked and hosed and weeded! While I’m drowning in the disaster that is the interior of my house at the moment, I can now look out the windows and pretend that I’m civilized 😊. Soon the rain will start , the leaves will pile up once again and the weeds will appear out of nowhere . Oh, and like magic also out of ‘nowhere ‘, there will be tools, ladders, wood, nails, and more tools strewn about ! Alas! Progress is happening and evidence of Scott and his worker Bob, getting our house ready to sell means this house will be messy! Oh well!
