Life Crashers…


I sometimes get amused when watching the HGTV Crasher shows…my first response is…I’m happy with my house…I’m happy with my yard…I wouldn’t need them…then…I think…yeah…but…I really would like to have a soaker tub in the bathroom…and…popcornless ceilings…and…a screened porch…and…and…and…well you get the idea…a seemingly endless list starts forming…

So…while it’s true that I love my house just the way it is…there are definitely things that I would like to change…inside and out…

Bertha…reminds me that it’s a lot like my life…although I am essentially content…there will always be things that I want to change…places I want to grow…metaphorical popcorn clinging to my ceilings…that I’d love to scrape off…

And…of course…she’s right…I find areas of my life every day…that need a bit of tweaking…or a full remodel…some…I dive into…some…I put off until later…and…some…I just ignore…hoping they will go away…

Today…I think I’ll embrace…my life and my home…just the way they are…unless…I’m about to go to the home improvement store…you don’t think…that maybe…just maybe…

Nah…that only happens on TV…

  1. Synchronicity again. Being at home causes me to start looking around my house and thinking about what I need to improve. Right now I will NOT LOOK. I WILL WRITE, not paint the dining room. Or rearrange the living room. Or change out the bathtub drain. Or put an extra coat of varnish on the hallway floor. Or paint the shutters. Or scrape the old paint off the garage. Or dig up another flowerbed. Or go to Lowe’s. Jane, I feel your pain, believe me!

    • Oh my, Peggy…your list is growing…hard to ignore…but I hope you do so you can write…I love your writing…and…your to-do list doesn’t bother me…LOL! Have a great day…doing whatever makes you feel the best!
