really a little stressed and frustrated from the chaos that is adulting, notably our lack of a kitchen, so Gerber and Linqia gave him the opportunity to find the calm in the chaos and remember that it’s all worth it. #GrowingUpGerber
Unfortunately, I had no idea how my life was going to change once we signed the purchase agreement. Fast forward 5 years, not only do we have one child, but now two. During that period I went back to school to finish my degree, and once I finally graduated in December of 2015, I thought the stress would stop.
Not the case. It reformed into other areas.
There is nothing in my house that is immune to the scope of this project. Not even the upstairs. Apparently kids continue to grow no matter how large the renovation is; therefore, requiring totes upon totes of clothing to replenish their flood ready pants. Who would have thunk it?
Have I mention that I started the master bath last year and the toilet is still in my garage?
Can’t life just pause until we have a dishwasher, and maybe even a stove again?
I had plans for this summer.
Then, when I thought I could relax for the evening, it was arts and crafts time. I spent an hour hot gluing little beach balls to fishing line so she could hang them behind the food table. Seriously, who does that?
I would rather do plumbing (which I hate because I always get wet) than inflate water balloons.
Michael loved every minute of it, and I got wet but it didn’t matter. Even the little one got involved as he tried to pick up the balloons and throw them. Their laughter was contagious.
I got wet. I didn’t care.
I jumped in the freezing pool because Michael asked me to. I didn’t care.
