window work, wearing me out!

3 days of window crew workers in my home....wearing me out!!! It was fun and exciting for about the first hour, which is when I posted last. Beyond that, not so much fun. I spent much of the days trying to keep young boys off the trailers and out of the saw dust, away from power tools and down from ladders. We've worn out our welcome (I think) at Grandma's house, and I was so glad to wake up this morning and stand at my kitchen sink without handing a hammer or other tool sto the worker standing in my window. Yikes. I'd never survive a reality show with crews around 24-7. John and Kate can have their fame...but at what price.
I ran into a good friend at the park last evening...how embarassed I was to realize I'd not showered in a couple days, and was wearing sweat pants I'd worn to bed the night before. All the chaos has thrown me into "schlepp" mode. I'm not even sure what that means, but a shower and leg-shaving was good for the soul last night! Today, I'm baking brownies, and watching the sun shine, still working my way out of the funk I've been in all week.
The windows are fabulous, clean (whew, that was another full-time job) and did I say fabulous already?! So, enough complaining. I must move on and enjoy the day!
Peace and blessings to you all!

I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one who wears sweatpants to bed and then around the next day--that makes me feel better. ;)
Hope today goes much better knowing that your legs are shaved and strange men aren't peeking in your windows.

Ditto on the sweatpants thing and the going unshowered for a couple of days at a time! I'm sure there are many more of us out there, but it's good to know I'm not the only one! Enjoy the view out your beautiful new windows!!! ;)
