Still Pre-Eye-Surgery “Nesting”
Today was a day when I continued to do “pre-surgery nesting”. Does this happen to all women? It happens to me before I know I’m going out of town, before trips, before vacations, before hospitalizations, before holidays. It basically means that I want things to look nice when I come home.
I want stuff done.
Well, they aren’t. But, I got the kitchen counter caulked and the outlet covers put on. I got some copper-bottom pots scrubbed my mother got me for my wedding–I hung two of them on the wall by my stove…both beautiful and functional. They seemed frivolous to me at the time, but they sure are pretty now hanging up. I have such trouble getting pans out from under my cabinet here! I got spoiled with pots & pans drawers at my other house! Anyway…I also got half of the front room painted, and the walls sanded and spackled again where I got the chair-rail down (most of it). I still have to get the piano moved and get that wall primed to finish.
I got cranky toward the end of the dayjust before I had to drop the kids off at grandparents. All I wanted to do was love on them, but I couldn’t. They are so haphazard with chores. Our finance study this week was on work ethic…some of those verses we need in our house this summer! Much summer work to do with the children!
Tonight as I left the church, a man that we’d prayed for prior to his Lasik surgery four years ago joined My Man to pray for me–such excitement for us. I love the body of Christ! Same surgeon! He’s had GREAT results and said it was the best investment he’d ever made. What a boost! (If you are considering it…start a savings pool well in advance and have other commitments caught up!)
My small group also laid hands on me as well. I just LOVE hearing out loud the prayers of the saints going up. A very special soul-peace installation!
Well, trash is out, pool has been babysat…time to wind down, I suppose. Still SO much to put away! Kids sure do make a mess!
