February has flown by and I haven't had time to write here at all! The new job is keeping me busy as I lean the ropes and as always...we are s-t-i-l-l working on the house! I'm beginning to think we will never move in there! My house here is semi-boxed up and ready to go - there are whole rooms with barely any furniture - and I feel very displaced. I certainly long for the routine and normalcy that have been set aside these past few years (did I say YEARS?) Ummm...yes I did.

I came across some pictures last week that are earmarked for the photo album/journal that I hope to complete when the house is done - that will chronicle this "labor of love" - and the date in the corner of one batch was 2007! We have been working on this crazy house for 3 years! I can't tell you how many times I have walked through the empty rooms - first when they were just divided by 2x4's....then bare drywall....and now at least painted...and daydreamed of how it will be when we finally move in.

Of course I realize all the problems I have now will follow me. The house won't be a panacea for all that ails me. I keep reminding myself that "Unless the Lord builds the house - he that builds it labors in vain..." And so I am plodding on and trying to be grateful for today and content to live with a greater part of my life in boxes!

I've posted some pics of our progress....enjoy! (they aren't in order...obviously...)

And a side note to all the ANONYMOUS SPAMMERS who have been leaving comments on my blog - do not waste your time. I only post comments from my legitimate followers. This blog is not a forum forum for advertising your links to "male enhancement techniques" and all the other garbage I've been receiving. Don't waste your time posting. it takes more time for you to type than it does for me to hit "reject."

Thanks for sharing the pictures. When it's finished it will be so worth it and you'll forget the time that it took!

I know what you mean about those spammers. I'd never received those until a few weeks ago!

Glad to see a post from you :)

You have been one busy lady.
The house will get done sooner or later. I am sure you are all for sooner. Nice to hear from you.
