i was awakened at one-thirty by the light of the moon shining in my bigger window, and a literal pain in the neck. i tossed and turned about an hour, then surrendered to the sleeplessness. what else to do but get up and blog?
by lamplight, the living room walls look the color of the perfect ratio of coffee to cream in my morning mug. i take a few measurements - the whole room is so off-kilter that i see my plan needs tweaking. the general shape of my floorplan still stands, but i see that the placement of the tv and the bookcases may require some adjusting.
brad, baby jake's father, is coming tomorrow afternoon to help Beloved bring in the cupboard and the table. on tuesday, the countertops are being installed, and next week joe and mike the builder men will begin my shelves. finally... there will be Places to Put Things.
i'm amassing a huge pile of Stuff To Give Away... clothes, books, small household things. (yes, allison - i agree - freecycle is the best!) it feels good to clear things out, even as the mess and the progress of its movement appears glacial at times.
warm milk and cinnamon are making me sleepy. it's time to go back to bed.
and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.
