Ivan-Initially a catagory 5 storm in September. This one just couldn't make up it's mind. Oh Florida isn't wet enough let's circle back around and hit her one more time.
Jeanne-Initially a catagory 3 storm in September, it too couldn't make up it's mind . Florida no...oops wait ...yes I think I want to hit Florida!
Did you ever hear that song by Keith Whitley...you know ...the "I'm No Stranger To The Rain" song?...
"To ride the wind and dance in a hurricane, I'm no stranger to the rain."
Well we Floridians were no strangers to the rain in 2004. We just about drowned down here!
back to my story....
That year, 2004, we were renting a condo while our house was being built. We had so much wind and rain that the condo roof blew off and the water from the second floor collapsed the ceiling of the first floor condo. Fortunately for us we weren't in it at the time the roof flew off. My husband was staying with my father trying to keep him from blowing away and I was stuck at work.
We were then homeless. So, rather than wait on the tile we slapped down vinyl flooring and moved in as quick as we could. That was seven years ago.
Finally, after seven years I am getting my kitchen, dining room, laundry, pantry and eat-in kitchen area tiled. I can't really say specifically why it took so long. Health issues? Money? Time?
Yippee! Dang diddy dang di-dang di-dang diggy diggy !
(I'm doing my happy dance here)
What a chore the prep work has been. Moving all the appliances, painting walls and baseboards. Moving a china cabinet, a hutch, two tables , and 10 chairs. I am exhausted and my back is killing me not to mention how worn out my hubby is. And, the girls don't understand stand what's going on. They are clingy and whiney too.
But, I'm excited! It's going to look so nice!
That honey do list is getting shorter!
I'm ready for a hot bath now, a glass of wine and a good night sleep!
