It has been a slow day. I was able to sleep in a bit - after an especially rough night of trying to sleep. That is 4 nights in a row for me - I need sleep really badly.
Anyway, nothing really happened until around lunch. I was able to meet with the builder and talk about doors and lights. Nothing earth shattering, I was just concerned about the lighting in the master bathroom and the 2 - 1/2 lite doors in the laundry room and our bathroom.
It was wonderful that I got to meet with him because he told me that we are just about 2 months out from being done! WOW!!! That lit a fire under me again. Counting down the days!
When I got back, the internet was down, so the kids could not watch their history show and that meant I could not "work".
What do I decide to do? Watch Fried Green Tomatoes. I cry every single time I watch it, but I love it. My daughter said that it was so southern and it made me feel a little bad that she does not know her roots very much. Not that I love everything about the south, but there are some things that are just wonderful - warm tomatoes, getting so hot and jumping in the lake, iced watermelon, sticky tar, the smell of summer in the warm, moist evening, chasing bats at dusk...
This movie in a particular reminds me of all that - the good stuff.
We also prepared for our field trip tomorrow - an encouragement tour at a Neurological Hospital, making encouragement cards and talking about some of the people we will meet, how to behave, etc. Since we fall under the older student crowd (yeah!), we get a more in-depth talk about neurological issues and accidents that cause many. Good stuff - always means more coming from another source than parents when they are teens.
Because ALL my crafting items are in storage, we had to get pre-cut cards and tags, then used stickers to decorate and a paint pen to write a encouraging quote. It will have to do. Otherwise, I probably would have sewn something. Like the Christmas card I did a couple of years ago.
Anyway, I need to figure out what we are going to have for dinner and get ready to back to the house to approve all the electrical work and take pictures. We are getting insulation tomorrow!
