So, I'm pretty sure I lost my fan base (ha! all three of you) by not posting in so long.
I have had a pretty rough past few weeks.
I have almost spent every minute that I've been awake the past few weeks working on the new house. We're almost done. I need to do touch up work on the cabinets and then there is one major project left (the master bedroom.)
I love how the house is turning out. It's amazing what paint and new mouldings can do. It's also amazing how much time just painting takes!!
My heart has broken a little the past few weeks. I am utterly grateful for Levi's grandparents (my in laws). They have kept Levi everyday, sometimes 12+ hours, and they have loved it. I hate leaving Levi. It breaks my heart - and I am struggling because I feel like I'm choosing to leave him. But it's only temporary, and I think it's done him a lot of good to get used to other people taking care of him, and he gets exposed to more things and more learning opportunities when he's over there. I just miss him. Miss him like crazy!
It's almost over though. We are now into the packing stage, and trying to get our belongings over to the new house. I think I would pretty much rather do anything else (including painting or painful medical procedures) than pack and move. It's so overwhelming and hard for me. And now I have Levi to either take care of while I pack - or send him away :-(
Just thought I would update. I really just come home to sleep at night. I don't think I'm going to post any pictures of the house until it's all done. Well, it won't be all done for a long time - now that we actually have time to gradually fix up a house, we're taking advantage of it. Window treatments will have to wait, bathroom remodels will have to wait, I haven't even begun to think about how I'm going to set up the practice room. Patience is a ...
