Ch-ch-ch-changes, part 1

Though this is really just a taste of things to come, we’ve had some major changes in the past week or so.

On the sad side:

John’s little mother’s condition has changed a bit for the worse as she’s slipped further into confusion.

On the wistful side:

My grad school status changed from “out on family medical leave” to “withdrawn in good standing.” We’ll see what the future holds, but now is not the time. That much is obvious.

My scooter changed ownership, from me to our good friend Dave, who plans to paint it red and hot-rod it up. (I never rode it to school – my children strongly vetoed that – Ben was of the mind that someone would snatch me off it at a stoplight and Liz just flat said, “No way.” Pam offered to pay me not to ride it. And John and I haven’t had time to pleasure ride in a long time, so it’s just as well.)

On the exciting side:

Our dining room has changed for the better, since John brought home the insanely beautiful liquor cabinet he made for us in his furniture design class at UALR.

Yes, my husband made this. No, you can't buy it.

But someday he'll have a website and maybe you can order your own. I don't mind sharing his talents with the word.

I exchanged my scooter for a newly ordered bicycle, which should be here soon. I’ll still have two-wheel transportation, just Lolly-powered. (Hope I love my Electra as much as I loved my Schwinn. And that it is as easy as riding a bike to get back to.)

And things are changing like mad on the remodeling/reconstruction front, most recently in the form of a new red roof – and mega sheetrock delivery from River City Materials, a company that can do amazing things with a crane and crew, like getting 12-foot sheets of Sheetrock through a second story window.

The early morning sun in behind the house made photos almost impossible, but you can kind of get the picture.

More to come. Much more.

Heading toward the upstairs office window. Crazy!

Nicely done!
