A fan of chaos I am not.
I like things to be as orderly as possible, all the time. I do not like to feel like I am out of control, in any way. I keep insane lists, and now I even have a whole entire book devoted to my lists. To embark without a plan is, well, practically impossible for me. Spontaneity is really, really a challenge. My sweet, spontaneous, fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants husband is extremely patient with me. And the Lord is absolutely using him to grow me in this area.
Case in point?
The master bathroom.
Now, to his credit, we had discussed this project. Fixtures and wallpaper. And a new shower door. Well, he's just so cute... I just couldn't say, "No," when he asked to "expand" our project a little bit. He assured me that he knew what he was doing, could do it within our budget, and would be done before Nora arrives in less than 10 weeks.
I tell you, I'm growing. Little by little.
I've had a few minor (?) meltdowns over the whole thing, but the Lord has given me an amazing peace about the whole project. And I really, really can't wait to see the finished project... I know it's going to be beautiful!
I'm sure I'm going to post more about this, as it's become quite the "event" around our house... but I think you'd better read about it as Michael posts. He's much funnier, and full of the pictures. It's amazing what you can do with just a Saturday and a Monday evening.
Also... I've been posting much more frequently these past few days, so scroll down for some posts you might have missed!
