As promised, the plasterer started our hallway and living room project right on schedule:
Seeing how today is Christmas Eve and there is still much work to be done, I'm afraid the beautiful tree I envisioned illuminating our bay window is going to have to wait until next year.
I've been seriously stressing that the plasterers wouldn't finish in time for me to move the furniture back in the living room, decorate a tree, and make my house look "holiday perfect" in time for my guests. It is time to let all that go and accept that the situation is beyond my control.
This afternoon my family will begin arriving from near and far. There will be plenty of laughter, good conversation, tasty food, and cute little babies to hug and kiss. I may not have a Christmas tree, but I do have a wonderful family to share the holidays with.
So from myself, Chris, and our two furballs,
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
