I Will Love Him Again

When he's done with this project. You'd think I'd have some compassion and understanding for the man who is working so hard to make a place where we can all sit as a family and eat supper. You see, we don't all currently fit. Yes, he is working very hard.

But that doesn't stop crazy-too-much-estrogen woman from being frustrated. There's a big gaping hole in my wall, folks.

And it's cold. And there is sawing and banging that interrupts babies napping and our school schedule. The table isn't accessible and so kids are spilling and making huge messes with meals. Not to mention the saw dust and nails and tools that are strewn all over whole house. Let's not forget my Blessing has some sensory issues and the noise is about to send her into orbit. The baby doesn't care for it much, either. She's funny about it, though. She goes to investigate when it gets a little quiet, but then hubby will bang a nail or crank up the saw again and she comes running as fast as her little legs will carry her into my lap.

Here' s the before picture. Kind of. He'd already taken down some molding and the furniture is moved out (into our living space and right smack in the way), but you get the general idea of what it used to look like.

And now for the swing (Yes, I'm swinging with the best of them these days)... I'm so excited about this little nook! He's putting in a bench around the bay window, and building a table that will better fit that area as well as our family. Yay! Stay tuned for after photos. Hopefully they will come very, VERY soon.
