I had a real roller coaster day, it was enough to bring this emotional girl to her knees.
I feel so blessed and so proud of the new President and of the new found inspired attitude in this country! I watched TV for about 12 hours (off and on, of course) yesterday and soaked in all of the hope and joy that I could.
Hooray for the Obamas!!!
We also had a plumber here yesterday working on the kitchen renovation. Things didn't go as planned. It was very confusing and wearing, to say the least. I have NO kitchen to speak of at the moment, just a microwave and a toaster oven. Toast anyone???
We're needing to rearrange our kitchen plan, buy some different cupboards, there maybe some structural changes we will decide to make, too. We are officially in the "low moment" of this project.
And then I spoke to my Grandmother yesterday. She will be starting chemotherapy next week for her Lymphoma. It is her third bout of cancer. There are no words for how I feel. I want to hug her and help her and heal her. I want her to fight this, but part of me wants her to not have to fight, not at her age (she's 81). I moved back to the USA to have some extra time with my Grandparents, this hasn't been enough time yet! Not yet. Please not yet.
So, that's my yesterday in a nutshell. My kitchen looks like a bomb went off, my emotions were riding a high wave most of the day, though I was brought low by dinnertime. Can I just go back to bed today and recover from yesterday?
I could use a few hands to hold today, bless you all for reading this and for the support this group always shares. I am so grateful that I have CCOR. :)
