Wednesday, 1st chart of the year, grumpy and sore

Well I finally completed one chart.  It has been hard as the shop is slow and every extra penny I have earned has gone into the house.  Every time I get some extra money I feel like I can take less out of the bank.  Right now I have $200.00 in cash and hope to have more by the end of the week to pay the painter.  I am getting so low in my savings account and it has me stressed.  Once the money is gone it is hard to put back.  I am trying not to let it get to me but it is.

I did make myself do a little sewing yesterday and it was hand work and today I am going to try and recover a cushion, but my back is screaming if I sit at my machine for any length of time.

The carpet has been laid in moms room and it looks nice. I need to call the handy man to put the molding up.  I will take a picture when it is finished. I am excited to get one room done.  Well actually two rooms.  There are still doors in the shop and bathroom that need painted and also the bathroom downstairs, but I can do those later. Might try and talk daughter into coming down and doing this for me.  Hmmm what can I bribe her with....?

 Hubs and I are going to take another dresser out of mom's room and take it to the storage as it is not being used and just makes things that much easier when we move.  I am trying not to be blue and grumpy.  Trying to be positive.  With the house all torn up and Hubs in stress, bleeding money, slow contractors, slow shop, back out of place and general malaise from the dark short January days I am having a hard time.

Let's see:

Mom's room is almost done
I do have some work in the shop
Things are progressing even if they are not done
I can take action if I want to, I just have to want to.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in thee negative.

Kim

  1. been there and done that. As a homesteader said to me when I whined to her about it... every day you do something no matter how small makes it better than what was before. Things move on GOD's schedule not our own.

  2. I have gotten things done, just not enough. It was gloomy this morning, and I am dying for a nap. One room down for you, and how many to go?
