Well let's start anew... I'm back... full steam ahead... my plan is to set down with my calendars that I jot things on each year and do a timeline of sorts with highlights from the past years, but first I am going to have to locate them all, ha.
As most of my family knows we have been ... well... sort of in a state of chaos with all the moving in and out and fires all about... my family and close friends understand! We have been trying to remodel for about 10 years and still have not made much progress... I finally told Loren (my
He says: We need to sell it.
She says: But that takes time. I want what I want and I want it gone now!
He says: I'm the boss.
She says: Why even talk about it, we always do what you want anyway.
End of conversation. As usual. Ho Hum! I use to think I was stubborn but I finally met my match. He isn't as vocal as I am, I can really kick up a fuss at times, he just lets me rant and then smiles and goes on about his business. Nothing changes... UGH! Hard headed man of mine!
I am not, as most who know me can testify, a patient person. I am sanguine by nature and make decisions rather quickly. Some call that impulsive. LOL! Sanguine's are not afraid of hard work but when it stops being fun or stops being progressive we want to quit! I don't need to ponder over things for long. I can make a decision and get-er-done. If it doesn't turn out like I like it I change it up till I do. At least I am moving in an upwardly direction.
I can go along with others for as long as I can see progress being made but... when it comes to a slow ooze or flat out stops... I want to scream! I can't stand to be making good progress and then see it just stop... what is up with that??? It is as if some people get so close to the finish line and are afraid of success... I want to cross the line and get to the next party... I mean isn't that what life is all about? I love seeing accomplishments... okay enough of my ranting.
I am doing as much as I can do on my own without help, as most of you women know there are just some things we really need our husbands or muscular boy-friends to help us with. But as long as I can do it I will do it without them. I don't mind asking for help and I am certainly not going to turn away a volunteer (I am good at delegating...LOL), so don't get me wrong, I know my limits and I will take care of myself so that I will not damage my body trying to do the heavy stuff.
