There are so many things in my life that need to be 'finished', and I know that the majority of you all are very much in the same boat with me. But why do I always feel overwhelmed? Why does the overwhelming feeling seem to explode every morning at about 3 a.m.? My eyes lids fly open. I try to ignore it. I make myself face away from the clock, pretending that this has NOT happened again. I turn my pillow over to the cool side and try to close my eyes. I try to relax. I try to think happy thoughts. Instead I think of all of the unfinished things in my life. Maybe if I get up and go to the bathroom it will help. I doesn't (mainly because I trip over the dog who sleeps in a different spot EVERY night). I come back to bed. The dog has moved. I trip over him again. Back in the bed I begin to pray for those in need. This sends me back to sleep. Maybe God is waking me to pray..... But when I wake in the morning, I wake with a block of sleep missing....and I drag through the day.
But here is one thing that IS finished thanks to the Mayor of DoodleMoochieville and his best friend who worked for 3 1/2 days to get this all done. I think it is beautiful. And it is one thing that is FINISHED and that I no longer think about at 3 in the morning.
|BEFORE....Old appliances and countertops..|
|AFTER...New Viking duel fuel range. A new vent hood that will suck your eyebrows off. New granite countertops and a great stainless backsplash.|
|BEFORE...Old appliances, sink and countertops.|
|AFTER...new dishwasher, sink, countertops and backsplash (see previous post for close up of this magnificent 'red snake' backsplash).|
