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. dishwasher, sink, countertops and backsplash (see previous post for close up of this magnificent 'red snake' backsplash).
