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.
