There's No Place Like Home

Sometimes things just fall into place.  I'm sure it's accidental, and hardly ever happens, but when it does... it feels SO good.  The Township called to let me know that the permit for my front porch has been approved.  Most of the snow melted today, and the rest of the week will be warm, so my son will have perfect weather to begin building.  While we were waiting Joe and I painted the master bedroom walls and trim and took down the old, mangled metal venetian blinds on the windows.  We replaced them with soft white honeycomb shades.  I even rearranged the furniture and hung my 'Gone With the Wind' framed movie poster above the bed.  Everything is warm, clean and fresh.  It's starting to look like a woman lives here again.  ME.  I think I may actually be falling in love with this house now.  Ray's house.  OUR house.  And I'm starting to feel like I'm finally... home.

You better keep this journal going even once everything is all done. You Better! I am happy you are finally starting to feel at home. You deserve it after all this hard work. I love old framed posters from old movies and old stars. Elvis, Marilyn, James Dean ect..and that's what I plan on doing to my bedroom eventually. Wanna make it a fifties themed bedroom.

It's starting to look like a woman lives here again? Wrong choice of words. "A real woman finally lives here. Maybe you've finally banished the demon.

So happy for you! I want you to know that thanks to Karen (Brand New Day), yours was the first journal I started to read. I read 19 pages and laughed all the way through! You're terrific and I wish you a happy life with Ray! : )
