…Perish

Alphabetical Post P

The pressure to write a post has been weighing on me heavily.  Although I work in the world of academia (elementary school teacher) I don’t have to worry about losing my position here at AMD (A Milkman’s Daughter) because I own it.

Hubster and I have been busy in the home remodeling mode. It all started back in mid-October when I decided we needed new family room furniture. I really made the decision about the furniture two months years ago. (I wrote about it here, but the link to the video in this post is no longer available.) We went to the “More than One pay Check for a Sofa” Store, but managed to find a reasonably priced sofa and love seat. Naturally, the furniture you want is never available in a quick turn around so we are waiting the 8-12 weeks in limbo.

The new floor is supposed to go in on Monday. Right now our home seems to be in a state of “abandoned home meets back room at the home improvement store”.

Needless to say all of this has had us consummed…painting, new light fixtures, vent covers, etc., and Hubster’s dream of having a light post out at the end of the driveway has come to fruitition…cue the hallelujah chorus.

This is not our light post, but you can bet that our new light post will be adorned this holiday season. This light post is from Pinterest.

In addition to the above light, I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with this project. I am crossing my fingers and toes that the furniture makes it here before Thanksgiving.

Have a great week!

    Glad to see a post from you…about a post…bwhahahaha…sorry-don’t mind me- I am a bit slap happy today.

    How nice you are getting so much done. I hope it all happens for you by Thanksgiving!! It seems we were always in a rush to get something finished just before a holiday. Sometimes we got finished- sometimes we didn’t.

    Have a wonderful rest of the week, Beemie. xo Diana

    You are singing my song, sistah! My new countertops are coming on Friday….that I decided to do in Sept before it was found out that my son would have open heart surgery the monday after Thanksgiving. So as I sit here trying to decide how I will get a huge t-day meal put together this weekend without a sink or dishwasher.. because plumber can’t come until monday to put them in..I wonder why the hell I’m even doing it.
    Been quite a rough patch for us around here but we WILL get through it with His help…..new countertops or not!

    Crossing all my crossables in the hope that everything arrives in time for Thanksgiving as promised (saw your note to Katie). I suspect you’ll enjoy the meal and the company regardless. Happy Thanksgiving!
