In February I began gutting our home in preparation for major renovations. As I had no one to help me, this took rather a long time and left me tired. Work crews began arriving in late March and the first floor is now complete. This had to be done so that The Hubby can easily get from one room to another. Work continues outside where steps are being built that will accommodate The Hubby's needs.
All of this means that I am never moving home. The Hubby simply cannot withstand a move and it is time for me to accept that. Further, The Spawn has met the man she's to marry and will wed next year. In a few years I hope to become a grandmother and I want to be on hand to help and to watch them grow. However, the realization that I am now an immigrant is not easy. Plagued by feelings of guilt and shame, I try to make peace with myself each day.
That's quite enough for one day so I'll leave you with my last submission to the Painting Challenge. 'Da Hokey Pokey Tribe.
As it is now time to begin working in the gardens, it is unlikely that I will blog on a regular basis until June or July. I have been out and about a bit reading and commenting over the last week or so. If I have missed your post, I apologise. I plan on dropping in. reading blogs and staying in touch over the next few months.
