Life isn’t easy.

The rain is falling outside my window as I stretch out on my bed, grab my good book, and enjoy a day with just laying and reading. Wonderful lowseason!

When the sun is shining, I feel bad that I stay inside, even though I can enjoy sunshine and heat on most days of the year. Why are we never satisfied?

This week has involved the choosing of colors, the checking of prices of furniture, and paying the first bit of the renovation of my house. We took a trip past the house yesterday to see how everything was going, and it feels like this are finally happening. I am starting to see that it can become a new house for Alicia and I.  It will be fun to be able to observe the renovation up close and do parts of it ourselves.

Lunch and color checking.

It is with mixed feelings that I do this. I have a lot of good memories in that house, and now some of them are being taken away. But do they really? Go away? I don’t want to think that they will go away with the renovation. I want to think that the memories stay. We’ll be leaving a house that has helped us move forward. A house that has been like a breath of fresh air for all of us. Will we be able to breathe? Will we be able to keep moving forward?

Life isn’t over. Life goes on wether you want it to or not.
