My buddy Kim & I always said, we noticed when we’re in control of our food demons…everything else seems to follow. Meaning we are more in control of everything else in our lives – and if it’s out of our control, we’re better equipped to handle them.
For example, the latest home disaster happening at the FNHM house is a leak/downpour from our air conditioner. Apparently a leaf, gunk, junk, you name it gets caught in the drain hole & water comes POURING into our bedroom. Unless you’re in there & there’s already a soaking mess on the floor you have no clue. So God only knows how long this has been going on, but lately with the torrential downpours we’ve been having here it’s come to our attention.
…and if you know me you know of my severe mold allergies/issues.
Well, do you know how your bedroom is suppose to be your place of solace? Umm..yeah, does this seem like a place of solace to you?
The walls are open to the beams, the “air scrubber” and dehumidifier are so bloody loud it sounds like you’re in an airport – there is no solace happening here! We decided to sleep in the living room for a couple of days while “this” was going on.
Since then, thankfully the walls have gone up (finishing up & painting tomorrow). Then, hopefully soon after our new carpet will be going in. We spent FOREVER picking out the perfect carpet when we bought the house…..and come to find out it’s discontinued? Soooo….thankfully the manufacturer has it marketed under a new name & it’s “similar” to what we have now. The GREAT thing about it is most of the carpet in our room is still salvageable & will be going in Natie’s room – so it’s not a total waste!
What was that old commercial?…. “Calgon…take me away…..”
…..Please……and this is why I’m running so much lately! Free therapy!
