No Blog Today.....And Here's Why


  












It's scenes just like the one above....that are keeping me going this summer....because the geezer keeps telling me that anytime I'm ready....he'll take me as fast as possible to this very spot....And there's no place on earth...except Round Knob Canyon...that I love more...than the streams and the hiking trails of the Smoky Mountain National Park. 

But I'm rushed to get back to Kev's today....so let me just tell ya what's going on...so you don't think I'm being lazy on ya.....hahaha 
Looooooooooooordy MERCY....LAZY DAY....THAT SOUNDS SO SO SO HEAVENLY TO ME RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!

But I've found the perfect weight loss secret....Just have your son move into a flood zone and just sit and wait.....you don't have to do anything....you don't have to plan menu's....count calories....nothing...Just get him in that flood zone and sit tight and wait for rain...Ok you can do a little rain dance before you sit down if you want to...but the way the weather is this summer...I don't think you'd even need to fool with that.........I am FINALLY....after 4 long years of waiting....down to 125lbs...and that is nothing in the world but working long hours of physical labor ...using nothing but ELBOW GREASE AND CONSTANT MOVEMENT....working IN that flood zone.

This home is a duplex ... I think I've said that before....so the man in the other part was flooded out too....so we're doing the whole house from end to end.   Two bedrooms...2 living rooms...2 offices...THREE BATHROOMS and the master bath in the other man's end is the size of our KITCHEN and it's actually TWO ROOMS in one BATHROOM.....
I was assigned to washing all the walls on the inside yesterday....and I didn't THINK I could do it all in one day....but I'm an optimist....so I was going at it and heading in the direction of finishing in one day...while the other 8 people were working on dis-assembling Kevin's office ...floor...walls right down to the studs and insulation....everything...and scrubbing every piece of everything in there and staining and hammering and this and that and that and this....OH my GOODNESS....
FINALLY...I went outside about 1pm....after scrubbing for 4 1/2 hours up and down a ladder...and I said ..."Ooooooookkk I was wrong...I CANNOT wrap up scrubbing the entire inside of this place in one day....I need somebody inside......
Well...Kev said 3 more guys were expected soon and he'd send someone in there with me....And that helped TREMENDOUSLY.....Steve did the looooooooooong hallway....while I wrapped up that end of the house and was moving to the first living room....and did I say the kitchen is HUGE....almost as big as our whole HOUSE....OH mercy...By 4pm I could have easily cried a river...and did finally..on my way home....but I've cut off my hair too short again and I would have been EXTRA ugly if I had swollen eyes stuck in the middle of my fat face with my pixie haircut...

I...of course....had never been in the other man's apartment and his bathroom was SO SO elaborate....huge wide brown marble sinks and a big tub/shower with huge scalloped porcelain shell halves coming out from the wall....just absolutely beautiful.....But still....gorgeous as it IS....I'd light a match to that place....and step back and laugh as it went up in smoke....and say...GOOD RIDANCE YOU FLOOD ZONE HOUSE.....WHAT a nightmare......Oh and that master BATHROOM...it was TWO ROOMS....hahaha   I felt like I was cleaning a castle....hahaha

Well I have to get back there today....I've blogged about no blog today....go figure.......

HOPEFULLY the Lord will get us safely through today and tonight there will be 2 beds in 2 bedrooms and ONE temporary sitting area with tv....and kev's office will be put back together....
Kev has just called and he didn't even stop last night....he's been up for 28 hours...working on that house.....so prayers appreciated for Kev and his strength to hold up through today....

Peace and love.....I'M TELLIN' YOU THE TRUTH....There are some GOOD STORIES coming out of this blog SOON.....hahahahaha  

I love you all gobs.....thanks SO SO much...for stopping in each day.....peace and love

Now seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee how important LOVE is?   It's knowing that the geezer will be here waiting for me when I get home.....that gets me through days like yesterday and like days like today will be........To love and be loved is EVERYTHING to me......
