My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

I think I can, I think I can, I think I cannnnnnnn

I know I can, I know I can, I know I can!
I feel like the little engine that could minus the cheering crowd.

So I have to have this attitude~
The carpet was pulled up today and the wood floor is bare. It is pretty good. Not perfect but I gave up on perfect a long time ago. It has some rough spots that I will have to research how to fix. I have to clean it with my new floor steamer and then put a new coat of polyurethane with tint. I don't "feel" my normal motivation, although I want it done and I am soooooooo happy to have that carpet gone.

I just have to keep saying.........................................

I have to clean the floors extra good!

Then play carpenter and attempt to put corner round down for the first time. Normally I like a challenge and I am women hear me roar, but I don't feel like that so I will just fake it till I make it;)

And I am sure I will be mighty proud of myself when it is all done!

Please pray I get the energy and motivation;)
Thank you;)
Psssssssssttttttt~Don't tell anyone but I haven't even started painting my bedroom. I'm just livin' outta the spare bedroom.
Peace, Heidi;)

Remember, the sooner the floor done, the sooner you get that new furniture down and the sooner you can rock Cooper.

I will pray for you! Thank you so much for praying for Quince! I really appreciate it! Maybe you can get that cute man in the picture to come over and help you! That would be LOADS more fun than doing it yourself!

There is nothing more beautiful than natural wood floors! You're so lucky.

It's going to look wonderful when you're finished. Will you show us pictures?

Hey, I know off topic, BUT how are things going in Africa for your daughter and son in law... or is it son and daughter in law??? DYING to know

Dana and Daisy said...

I just read the thing in your top right column about how you miss cooper and it just about made me cry! He does have those cheeks that just make you wanta give him sugar! I'm glad you get to see him so often.

p.s. for a fairly new blogger, girl you are rocking on the friends! Way to go!

Can't wait to see pics of your place after the work is all done.

Scrappy Girl said... mood is still bad...I am hoping I wake up tomorrow in a good one. LOL

As for putting your followers where I have mine...go into editing your layout...then pick up your "followers gadget" and move it to the top of your blog posts. It should stay there.
