Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

Construction on our addition is coming to an end and we are getting anxious. It has actually been a very positive experience but no matter how positive the experience, there is only so much one can take! We spend most of our days at home as there are crews here working. The only places we can move about freely, or should I say the only places with accessible furniture, are two bedrooms and the kitchen, oh and the deck. It is too hot to enjoy the deck right now. Even the cars have had to sit in the driveway as the garage is packed!

I was told that I can't move furniture in yet- there is still electrical, HVAC, plumbing and touch up work to be done. This morning I decided to be defiant. I moved ladders, trim, and doors so I could reach the one sofa that remained in the living room. I uncovered it and since I could not find my handy sliders, put dust rags under each leg and started shoving. I shoved it to the window where mom and I sat and ate our lunch of yogurt. Ah, heaven! What a change from the kitchen table! As we sat and looked out the windows I asked mom what she was seeing and she said that she was looking for a bear to come out of the woods! I kept looking for "the others." You see, we have been watching LOST on DVD and are on season 3. I had heard about it but never watched it. I am hooked!

What a great picture of the two of you enjoying the moment. Yup, sometimes you just have to be a bit defiant and do what you need to do. This moment must've given you renewed hope and anticipation of good things to come.
