I'm back! HA. You guys crack me up. Thanks for checking on me. So, for some strange reason, I thought today was gonna be a nice relaxing rainy Sunday. UMMM, NOT. At 8:30 this morning the "crew" showed up to rip the back wall out of my house and open up my "kitchen". It's a "kitchen" because it's not really a kitchen. There is a fridge sitting in the middle of where the kitchen should be. There is no stove and I put a microwave on a folding table. We do have a sink. Needless to say, I was glad the "crew" showed up today. They got the wall out and all braced back up. Now we just need a little sheet rock work and then the cabinets and new appliances can go in, oh, and don't forget, a floor! This has NOT been the easiest move to say the least. I don't recommend ever living on a construction site. August and September are by far the busiest months of the year for us. I have decided to NEVER move during those months again. As a matter of fact, I have decided to just NEVER move again. I got all I need right here on Sunset.

This is where we left it today! After all, I still needed a couple of hours to clean the sheet rock dust off of everything in the house. What a nightmare! We knew that was really gonna open things up...but it did even more so than we realized. It also lets all of the light from those back windows into the den....(here's the only picture I have of it right now)

Some day (hopefully soon) I'll have pictures that don't have cardboard boxes in them. We bought an entertainment center this weekend, too. How about that TV on another folding table?
I'm heading to bed. I've got a busy week. It's update file time at work...that can make for some long days, I've got several meetings in the next few days and then I have to be in Jackson MS next week.
Keep my family in your prayers over the next few days if you don't mind. I'll update on a few "situations" through this next week.
Glad to be BACK.

Well thank goodness, I can call the search team off...I was seriously afraid that Bigfoot broke into your house in the woods and kidnapped you all or put you in a cult....I don't know how you are even surviving cuz I think I would jump off a bridge with everything you have going on.. So glad u are back I really really really really really really missed you!
