Stuff: Remodeling, weather, missing all of YOU!

WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET UP TO 12" OF SNOW TODAY.  ICK! I hate it, now that I can't clear it myself.   But first we are getting rain that is trying to freeze.  Isn't this lovely?  LOL  What is it with this snow in March?  Anything can happen in Iowa, especially Northern IA in March, though.  But just last year it was 53 today the record says!!  I bet Dave won't make it home tonight, IF it INDEED DOES get as BAD as they say.  Well, there is nothing we can do about it, Mother Nature will do what she wants. 
 
How are things with YOU?  What have you guys been up to?  I hope you are having some fun, and if so I want to hear about it!!
 
 You do know we had our kitchen remodeled and it took 3 whole weeks, right???

Well, yesterday I worked like a slave, LOL-- I carried lots of stuff (boxes up from the basement and or dining room to the kitchen!) Also, Yesterday I REALLY the spare room, (for the first time since the construction mess and dust)  and worked on putting stuff away in the kitchen.  I also cleaned the dining room, dusted all furniture and floors and also washed the laminated floor in D.R.  I was really pooped
after that and the dogs and I took a nap about 2:30 or 3.   All 3 of us (dogs and me) got on the king size bed. (Watched TV to start with and then snoozed.  We didn't wake up until after 6 PM (of course, TeddyBear our Bichon had gotten me up at 4:30 AM, he's been doing that) so, I was really tired. I thought I wouldn't be able to sleep last night, but I did with no problem-went to bed about 11:30 PM.  But that's because I did a lot of work in one day and I am not use to working THAT hard. Plus I'd had to move Dave's guitars, and all his extra junk out of the spare room so they could deliver the new queen size bed for in there, yesterday too. I even moved the dresser and the desk in there, and moved the bed around to "properly clean that floor.)  Of course, after the bed was delivered, I had to move all Dave's stuff back, etc. Man, was my back and neck killing me!  (And I SURELY missed my pain pills!!  WOW did I!) (But I still got lots of stuff done and was proud of myself, even though I knew I'd overdone.)
 
Anyway, the delivery guys took the old Queen one in our basement away, and then the one that had been in the "spare" room went down into the basement. It's not that OLD, (well, only about 10 yr. But it's still a nice bed.) That Queen, went down in the basement...If you ask me, it's way too nice of bed to be in the basement, hasn't been slept on that much, and when it has, it's been just one person, one of us who for some reason couldn't sleep in the King.  I offered the bed to our son Tim....I wonder if he gets sick of getting all our "older" stuff, but it's never that old, (and is always in GOOD shape) as we seem to get new stuff much sooner than most people I know, so Tim's house is quite well furnished.
 
Tim has a Double Bed right now, and declined the offer, for now.  He'd have to get his friend to drive the his truck here, and pay him gas money, and this isn't the best time of year to do that, either, so for now, Tim said thanks, but no thanks in a very nice and polite way!

I already sent you unfortunate news about Dave's (my husband's) MRI. Test.  Poor Dave.  Later,  friends,  I would REALLY like to hear from at least SOME of you again.  I really wonder how you are, and miss you.  If you still want to be buds, please write me when you have a few minutes.  I would really appreciate it!  If I did something to offend ANYONE, I am deeply sorry for it, and at least would like the chance to apologize for it.  Besides, right now, my email is my only "fun diversion!"
 
Love,
Merry

I'm here and no need to apologize for anything. sometimes we all get caught up in what ever life or mother nature throws at us. A foot of snow now would send me over into the depression zone too. Sounds like you did some serious work and I agree with Dave that you should pace yourself and don't over do it. I also know the feeling though of getting it done. Be safe and warm.
