It's weird setting up your own space. Choosing all you want, working hard to make it look the way you wish, working with what you have to make something different. I've struggled with the past few months of transitioning. Moving into a 99 year old home in a historically poor area has been...weird and exciting. There isn't much to "find" here, per say, but there is a lot of potential to come from hard, hard work. I wish our projects could be done in less time, but I'm trying to teach myself that chaos and dirt don't mean that you have to fix it immediately. We're exhausted. Not only is there the normal maintaining of a home, but there's remodel, garbage, 99 years of living in a space, that seemingly wasn't helped. Things are held together with spray foam. Which I can't judge entirely because I realize the lack of material in a rural community, but being the daughter of a contractor and an obsessive cleaner is still making me a bit nuts. Learning a new space is hard, it truly makes you appreciate the good, hard work that those who work making the items we don't think about; beams, plaster, tile, drywall, actually go through. I appreciate the life that has been here. I appreciate that I have a home, that I have the means to change what I don't like, even if it takes time. I have time, it's good to learn to live a little slower. Thank you all for being so patient. We're trying to learn more and more every day.
Break time on this Friday! Anyone else is feeling that the weeks are going by a little too quickly? I certainly am! :)
Una pausa en este viernes. ¿Alguien más está sintiendo que las semanas últimamente se están pasando un poquito demasiado rápido? ... porque yo sí :)
