Oh my gosh! There it is!
I think I found it!
(A mind is a terrible thing to lose.)
After a summer we'll always remember as mind blowing,
things are finally falling into place.
Of course, they really didn't fall there.
It took a team to help them land:
Amy did the balancing act,
while others directed.
And a miracle happened:
all our old stuff started looking new!
The TV cabinet from the bedroom turned into a hutch in the kitchen,
and the dishes that didn't fit in the cupboards
got stacked on top in a display.
It was like playing with a Rubik's cube. I discovered where something should go, and then I had to mess up everything I'd done everywhere else to get it there. There was always a pile of left-over stuff to move to the bedroom or the garage, and then the next day I'd be out searching for whatever had seemed unnecessary yesterday.
It's home. It didn't take a month or even a week. Our first night felt right, in spite of the mess around us. We're like the TV cabinet in the bedroom--we just needed a new spot, new surroundings, and we feel brand new! We're loving it!
This week I'm in St. Louis tending grands, with no boxes to empty or closets to organize, so I'll be giving home tours and tips on moving and decorating. Come on over . . .
