It just can’t be easy, can it?
Our dishwasher died. We were so excited to finally get our awesome new Bosch delivered yesterday.
Kitchen is torn apart.
The electrical was in the wrong place for a Bosch.
New holes and new wiring has to be put in.
Electrician should be coming today.
But the dishwasher man can’t come back until later this week.
The kitchen will be staying torn apart until then.
Opened my new dishwasher.
It was full of gross, sour water.
Smelled up our entire kitchen.
I don’t like stinks.
I made a lot of calls.
One of my precious ones had a doctor’s appointment yesterday.
We needed a good report.
Yesterday was my Dad’s birthday.
Where in the world did I put that awesome present we got him?
I know it’s here somewhere.
I suddenly remembered that we homeschool.
I am responsible for my children’s education.
Even among stinky, new, expensive dishwashers.
And doctor appointments.
We are claiming that good report…and praying for the procedure that has to happen later this week.
More important than a torn up kitchen and stinky water.
The phone has been ringing a lot.
Oh yeah…I’m the one making soup for a group tomorrow.
Who took my grocery list?
Why in the world do people ask my advice and I can’t even find the grocery list?
My house is dirty.
My word for the year is SEE.
I’m seeing a lot this week.
Maybe I should have chosen DON’T LOOK!
Seeing requires acknowledging and embracing. All of it.
The good and the bad.
To fully experience the moment…whatever it is….
and to be reminded that:
Addled, but peaceful~
