Babetoo, could you afford to just throw up your hands and say to heck with it all, and wallow in those down feelings for a while? Seems like the old optimism and energy creep back in after a period of time whether you ask for them or not.
From your past postings it sounds like you're a pretty tough cookie. Many kind hearts here are wishing you the best.

Good vibes to you, too, Katie.

I just woke up from a great night's sleep.

I didn't get any work done on the rooms today but we got our fridge completely torn apart and cleaned and DH worked on it once again. It is draining water down under the crispers at an alarming rate and we are just trying to get by until we can get a new one. We will probably get this one fixed and use it as our spare.

So, today I am going to do my closet doors and remove an antique desk from my soon to be studio and put it in the hallway where it will fit nicely and look beautiful. Only problem is this will make another huge project because it currently holds all Dad's papers, etc. and I am just not ready to deal with them at the moment. This is all the stuff I have collected through the estate and papers he kept that I didn't need.

We just returned from vacay late last night. DH had turned the water off before we left, which also turned off the source for the outside hoses. Bad DH!! I was frantic, as temps were in the 100+ range with no rain the entire time we were gone. Luckily, I have wonderful neighbors, and they kept the vegetable gardens watered, I have no idea how, possibly by hand carried watering cans. I haven't talked to them yet, but everything looks good and I just picked a big cuke and my first ripe tomato, on my way out to pick the beans.

I was sitting here with my knife and fork eating the three chicken legs I cooked up. Son #1 walked in and started to laugh at me. "This is how you eat chicken legs." So he picked up the last one and ate it all. With no knife and fork. And he was still laughing as he went out the door. I have to smack that kid. I know I taught him better manners than that.

Better manners than eating with his hands or better manners than eating with out a knife and fork?
