Rambling Incoherent Thoughts

Our floor is finally done! Or at least it will be once we get the baseboards done. I'll post pictures when that happens, maybe this weekend. I don't know what is in this medication the doctor prescribed, but today I feel like I'm positively floating. I didn't even take the pain pill yet today, but just from the ear drops, I feel disconnected and confused and foggy. My arms and legs are not quite cooperating with my brain. The good thing is that I finally managed to have a good night's sleep for the first time in a week! The doctor said that my left ear is so inflamed that she was surprised it wasn't bleeding. She thinks I did something to injure it, like jam a q-tip in there, but I'm sure I didn't. All I did was get a cold, then go to the dentist. Anyway, I'm sure y'all didn't come here to read about my poor sore ear. I have made no secret of the fact that I am not the Martha of housekeepers. I discovered Flylady a couple of years ago but never really got going with it because of my inconsistant work hours. I decided to give it another try. I function really well when I can get a routine going, so we'll see what happens. Last night's bridal shower went very well. The bride was totally surprised. It was a lingerie-themed shower, held in a private room at a cafe. Very fun. JK was pretty good for the most part. It was nice having a private room, so I could let her crawl around and play. She kept trying to steal the bride's gifts. We're going tonight to look at more houses. Now that the laminate is done, the rest of the work on our place should go quickly. I hope. I'm kind of conflicted about this whole house hunting thing. I'm not sure I want to move! It's kind of strange, because every other time I have moved in my life, I have been really excited about it, with no regrets. But this is the first place I've lived in that is not rented. I know I'll learn to love our next place, but I don't want to leave this one yet! I just have to keep in mind the noisy neighbours, the lack of privacy in the backyard, the lack of storage, and the yard that is pretty but not very good for a toddler. The problem may be that I haven't seen a place that I love yet.

  1. It is hard leaving your first house/home. I still miss mine from time to time but then again I haven't found a house since then that I loved as much. Yet. You will find that house and when you walk in your head will spin and you will just know! Sending well wishes your way! You poor thing! You must be miserable! How is JK? Is she still under the weather or feeling better?
    Good luck on your house hunt sweetie! Something to keep in mind- we saw over 40 houses before we found "our" house. But once we saw it we completely forgot about all the others we had seen! Crazy huh?
    Have a great day and feel better!

  2. I'm glad you finally got some sleep.

    It IS hard to leave your previous house. I think once you find a new one you love it will be easier. Sometimes I miss "parts" of my other houses but rarely the entire thing.
