It's been a very long time since I've been on the GM thread yet alone started it. So . I'm about to put on a pot of hmj & start a new painting before the construction crew comes in & kicks up copious amounts of dust. :wildone: With all that's going on I need a bit of therapeutic relief ~ the last 3 weeks have been a flurry of activity & chaos. I need my alone time for a bit this morning. kt is doing well in Residential Treatment Center (RTC) - counting down the days til discharge though she doesn't have a final date of discharge yet (end of May). Niece, K, is moved in & settling in well. She has a job interview this coming Saturday & could use a few good thoughts. In the meantime, she & I are going out this morning to find a bathroom medicine cabinet, vanity lights, & paint for the living/dining rooms. I expect when all is said & done I'll sit down & have a good cry ~ then I'll take a long, very hot shower in my new bathroom. None of this would be done if husband hadn't died. Sorry - I'm on a bit of a mood swing this morning. In the meantime, have a good day. Keep it calm.
