House guests at a construction site

Living in a remodel is really a challenge.

Robin and her family have a great attitude. After the several months of household upset its amazing to me that they are not pulling their hair out. Probably because they have their eye on the prize - two new bathrooms and the setting for a wall mounted HDTV plasma screen - big enough that they will all feel as though they are sitting right on home plate.

Anything that disrupts my home gives me heart burn. Actually I have been very surprised at how well I am doing in their chaos -but that's the key, its not MINE.

I remember how it was when Jim and I added a room to our kitchen. It seemed to me that a crew of strangers prowled in and out of our kitchen for months. Jim and I were the only ones at home - but still, eating in the upstairs bedroom for several months wore thin.

Looking on the bright side:
Yesterday Jim and I made trip to the Teddy Bear Coin Laundry. Cute place with kid-looking bears painted on the wall. With a Starbucks across the parking lot it turned into a pleasant outing - sitting outside reading in the sunshine with a latte while the clothes tumble and dry. What's not to like?

Starting back to normal:
This morning the door bell rang. It was Moses from Sears. He held the magic papework in on the new washer and dryer waiting on his truck. Robin's new laundry room was ready. She had everything measured to a T - all they had to do was attached the various hoses and plug them in. After two long months, that only took fifteen minutes.

The house is humming with the sounds of clothes tossing and tumbling down the hall.
