Morning brain

It’s 7:37am on Thursday, December fourteenth. I’m drinking a cup of Starbucks toffee nut coffee I bought yesterday, put in the fridge and warmed up this morning. It’s like we’re camping here with the kitchen torn up for remodeling. Almost all of the kitchen stuff is piled in boxes and stacked on the kitchen table in the family room. The man doing the remodeling work, Pete, works alone and only works from around 8am to 1:30 or 2, so progress is going as fast as I’d like. This is awful during the pre- Christmas days to have this big mess going on. Due to all the hullabaloo with Annette’s rapid worsening condition then death and everything that went along with it I guess I didn’t realize this was going to happen at this very inconvenient time. Now I just have to wait this out without having a nervous breakdown or getting arrested. The dust involved with this has been bothering my sinuses the last week and a half. I’m praying it will be wonderful once it’s done. I feel blessed we can afford to have it done. I know I have countless blessings in my life. I’m very fortunate. Pete, the carpenter, is a very nice man. He is a retired guy who lives here in Sun City and had his own construction company for many years. Now he works a few jobs with limited hours as is convenient for him and his wife. We are lucky to get this guy. 

Yesterday we went to a countertop store warehouse looking at quartz remnants and found a couple we liked. The clerk lady is supposed to email us her price. She was a horrible rude idiot and I don’t know how they stay in business. We then went to Floor & Decor to look at tiles and found some that we liked. 

Tomorrow is our chorus dress rehearsal at the church before Saturday’s concert. I’m excited! We rehearsed with the band Tuesday night and it was so good and exciting! After the concert Saturday afternoon we’re going to Mike’s family party in Plainfield.

It’s late afternoon. I just took the dog for another walk. I have low energy from all this coughing and my nose running.

I got my video made and sent off to the employer. I haven’t heard anything yet. I’m staying positive. At least I’m blessed to be alive. I’m blessed in so many ways.
