Blessed and Bewildered

I thought when I started this blog that I would write on here more often, but this has just been the strangest year and I'm not really sure what to make of it. Its now October, 5 months from when our house "exploded."  We still have no kitchen or dining room and our heating system is still about 2 weeks away.  This experience has been so difficult for me because I am a stay at home wife and my home is such a big part of who I am. I like my house to be cute, clean and uncluttered. Well it might have some resemblance of cute, but the other two are nearly impossible right now.

However, in the midst of this I know I am OK. I have a wonderful husband who loves me and who  is cool as a cucumber (unless he's stuck in traffic) :)  So none of this really phases him. He doesn't fully understand how difficult this is for me, but he tries his best to listen and to stay positive for the both of us. I am also thankful for the parents I have and for how easy it is to talk to them. I have a special relationship with them and I can talk to either one of them about absolutely anything. My dad's quote of the year has been "And this too shall pass." :) Our house may be falling apart, but I'm thankful for the loving people I have around me to help me deal with this.

So on a happier note I went and bought my pumpkins from the cute 94 year old man who lives on the road behind our house. :) I wasn't going to do any of my usual fall decorating, but it does feel good to have some sense of normalcy. Also on a much happier note, we should have our new kitchen by Christmas! ;) I know that sounds like a long time, but we have a lot to do before it can be installed.

Ok so enough rambling, just wanted to give a glimpse of what is going on in our life. :)
