The stress of remodeling....


I am going to whine and feel sorry for myself for a bit so if you feel like not listening plug your ears :)
Remodeling is nothing but stress.... especially when it comes unexpected and you have to pick colors, floors and kitchen cabinets in a few hours time. No hot water for close to 2 weeks will drive you insane since you have to boil water for dishes and cold showers "hurt".

Moving in with the in laws is another thing... as much as I love them dearly I want to live in my house with my art studio, cat and my own schedule and food. I am now running between the in laws, our house and back non stop since I can not live in a house full of contractor dust. The pneumonia thing... still...

I hope to get over to my house today to take inventory of what is next.... kitchen designer, contractor to close and paint walls, floors, and last paint walls... We might have hot water later tonight. My husband and son are both roughing it out staying at the house with the cat. Our furry friend is hating life right now and can't wait to have his food bowls back where they belongin the kitchen again soon.

It can be weeks before I can move back home :( but as soon as the last bit of dry wall is cleaned up I am going back and having a party. ART is but a memory and I am sorry to say I don't even feel the urge to create. Some sort of artist block I guess...

My next blog should be less negative don't you think.

over and out...

{{{HUGS}}} Can't begin to imagine how upside-down your life must be at the moment. You go ahead & have your moan! Fingers crossed, it'll all be over soon & you'll have your house back. I'm sure the creative spark will relight when you're back in your space.
Take care. x

You poor thing!
I know EXACTLY what you are going through because I have been there, too. And I have asthma!
Take a 6 week vacation in some nice hotel!
Look up decorating sites and pull up patterns and colors!
