We’re in the middle of a remodelling project.  I have a view in my mind’s eye how this thing will look when it’s done, and I can’t wait.  The outcome, even if it comes close to my dream, will be amazing, and I’m really happy and excited about it.

The project is entering week three.  Things are chugging along really fast, actually, and I’m pleased.  But this weekend, we had to make some decisions about other parts of the house affected by the construction, and how we are going to reconfigure things.  This, too, is exciting, but in the meantime, it’s meant as much sorting, tossing, reorganizing and the rest as it would be to actually move house.  On top of this, work is busy, and my husband and I are about two weeks away from a major trip.

It’s making me a bit crazy.

I feel like my regular sense of organization mixed with light chaos has bloomed into a flood of  “Where the he** did that go?” to “How am I going to get this all done before we leave?”  Feeling a bit overwhelmed is becoming slightly normal- it’s like having too much espresso even without the extra hit of caffeine.

I know it will all be better.  I know everything will come together like a puzzle, and I’ll look back on today, on the nadir of my project, and laugh a bit.    I’ll post some pictures here soon, so you can all appreciate the progress, but in the meantime, I feel like I’m a bit on edge, and the chaos is not yet ready for public viewing.  I wish I could close my eyes and it would all be done, actually.  I’m ready to paint and organize and get back to life as normal.

It’ll get there.  Just not soon enough at the moment.
