Two steps forward, one back. Just another day in our life. Yes, the kitchen sink is on the floor. Yes, the contents of all of the bottom cabinets and drawers are in tubs in the dining room. Yes, we are still eating and living here, using paper plates and washing dishes in the downstairs bathtub, homeschooling, sanding doors, painting everything, reading, watching flicks, talking on the telephone, being bouyed by the love of friends & fam, who call and check on us and pray for us and study the Bible with us and homeschool with us, trying to maintain our sanity, (o.k. that's mostly me, not being able to find Q-tips on Sunday almost put me over the edge). The new normal. Just another glitch- new counter top (this time one where the seams match!), shaving the back edge, gluing and screwing in the counter top and reinstalling the sink. Adding another new skill to our repertoire. Good thing Viking Man also goes by Dr. Handy Man.
And that thing about visual order that I mentioned needing here. Guess God isn't in agreement with me yet. I am closing my eyes and saying over and over again, "Embrace the Journey, Embrace the Journey, Embrace. the. journey."
