The guys spent almost 4 hours trying to get my new chandelier up in the stairwell. They worked on it together and the one on the top of the ladder could not get it up. He dropped the original globe and it shattered everywhere... messed up my new paint job and chipped the molding I so gingerly placed on each stair step. All I could do was just go outside to wait it out. They needed a new ladder and then gave up! I was good though, said nothing and came back in to clean up the mess they made.
I did not cry then!
I got a call from the Doctor today. My mammogram results came back.
They found a "SPOT". What ever that is?
Monday I will go into the hospital for a simple test to take a look at what they found? I know many of you have had the same results from your mamo only to find it was nothing more than a little cyst or something of no consequence. Lord knows I don't need anything else wrong with me!
"That did not make me cry!
This made me cry!
Thinking I could install my new floor. All of you who know me,, know I'll try anything! But no matter how much I worked on it today, I could not get this puzzle together! The job was not hard at all. My jig saw cut the wood so easy. I used paper to trace a pattern for the areas along the wall and that was easy, but the grooves, how do you get them together? Got one ok, then the next would move.. this went on all day. Then Mr. N. called a few handymen and they quoted prices to install the floor. "They wanted double and tripel what I paid for the floor" One nice handyman, that came by, gave us a price then was kind enough to give me some tips and he made it look so easy. "Well, it was not" My new floor boards are now scattered all over the house. The house is a mess, furniture everywhere and I gave up! Took a shower, then sat on my bed to write this post.
All the boxes now sit waiting for some kind person to come install my floor.
Mr. N. bless his heart, went out and bought me Knee Pads". He is as confused as I with this floor! I'm so upset with myself because I'm not one to "Give in to defeat"! "I really want to install this floor" I love doing such jobs. But as I said before, "This is one heavy duty puzzle"
Tomorrow is another day and I'll give it one more try.
Then I'll call one of the nice handymen to come do it.. but I'll not be happy about it at all because "I hate to part with my money!"
I'm truly excited to have my new floor. It's replacing such a dirty old carpet that once graced my home. Until then I'll gather my thoughts tonight, in peaceful sleep. Get up tomorrow and give it one more try. If I'm not able to do it.. then it's only a phone call away!
I can't wait to show you all the finished floor.
