Most of you will know by now that I get a real kick out of making my home lovely with bargains... and paint! For a while the tiny room that the girls have been sharing has been more than frustrating.... no storage, no room to play on the floor, no where to put clothes.... but we hung in there thinking of storage solutions, limiting the number of toys etc. However, enough has become enough.
Goodbye guest room (hello sofa bed...)
I present to you... Changing rooms... the budget way!!
Hello friends, I'm back!
Some of you will know that 3 weeks ago I had to make an emergency trip down to my folks as my dear dad had been in a serious accident. I do mean serious. As in run over by his bulldozer serious. *groan*
You know those phone calls that you never want to get?? However, by God's sovereign grace my dad survived but has lost his right leg. I can't even describe how horrible it was to see him in the hospital bed, looking like death is so very near and wondering just what will be. It's all been very horrible and to be truthful quite frightening - but the worst is over (thank you Lord!) and now he has a massive adjustment to make to life. My dad is a logger. And a hunter. And a fisherman. The adjustment will be huge.
Anyway, all that to say "here I am". Thankful to still have a dad. Relieved that it was not even worse because it really should have been. And aware that life is fragile. Eternity is only a heartbeat away for each of us. We need to be ready folks. Are you?
So the first hideous week or so we were able to breathe easy again and even enjoy some time as a family. Some photos of our Christmas......
