Whoa…it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged and not because I’m empty of words…but simply for lack of time. There’s a lot going on in my life currently and many changes in the near future, so I cherish every moment of quiet time I can flee away to.
We are welcoming my parents, who will both be 88-years old this coming July, once again into our home. After 3-years we will again share our home with them. Our lives and routine will again be restructured to fulfill a need. While they do still ambulate well, they are both getting feeble. Mom tires quickly, and Dad has slowed down considerably. Also, the house in Missouri that they currently live in is needed for the owner’s daughter and family.
Although Hubby/Pastor has retired from his secular job at the hospital, I still work full-time and will for a few more years as my health permits and the job is there for me. Because I’m working, a lot of the responsibility will fall on dear hubby’s shoulders.
So today, Saturday, we are busy rearranging our home to accommodate my parents. First, we are working on their room, removing the exercise equipment, and bringing in the other bed. I purchased new sheets for their beds yesterday during my lunch break and would like new bedspreads. We have removed carpets in places to prevent falls, etc.
Bud has been busy getting the stair rails painted and back up…a job we had procrastinated doing! They do look nice…kind of a black antique-y finish.
One project out of the way…now on to the next. I think we are moving the beds around and clearing out the closet in what will be their room. I’ve still got the kitchen to reorganize. We need to finish painting the kitchen too, but probably won’t get that done before they get here.
Here’s a photo of what will be the family photo wall above the sofa. I’ve yet to insert our photos. The silhouettes are of our three sons.
I also have a photo wall to put back up in the hallway. The photos will all be in black frames. I have the frames, just another one of those things I’ve not had time to get back to.
Well, my break is over and now back to work!
