Simply Sunday~ Hope!

Good morning, readers
Thank you for stopping by on a Sunday!
I always try to have something fun to share on Sundays but this week has left me very stressed. 


We had water damage to our first floor on Wednesday. By late Thursday,  the plumber had still not found the leak. In the meantime they had to jack hammer holes in the floor and walls to try to find it.  They never could get to it as it was under the house, but they did "by pass surgery" on the pipes and stopped the flow of water.


The water damage did not stress me but the damage done to the house, trying to find it, has given me great anxiety. Seeing them jack hammer holes in walls in my office did not make me happy. The floor needed to be pulled up anyway so that part is ok. I don't mind having to move stuff from the main rooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, family room, but having to move my office is stressing me to the max. My office is my Craftroom and if you can imagine packing all of that up in an organized fashion. Ugh! 


I never did get my own Christmas Cards made to send out and I feel badly about it, but all the craft stuff has to be packed up:( 


The heat fans are driving me batty. I think only 3 more days of those, then renovation can begin.


I hate to complain, no one was hurt, no damage to furniture or household items, so we are so VERY fortunate. I just don't handle stress well and during the holidaze, with so many nick knacks out it makes it even more to pack back up. 


But I need to remain positive and have some....

Hope!! 

So you see, I guess I do have a fun "share" after all. I am nuts over Honey and Me Inc. Snowmen
Let me show you a few of my old and a few of my new.
They make me happy!


In my Craftroom/Office




In my Entry Way


If a snowman can't make me happy, nothing will!




So even though the floors are torn up in the entry and the heat fans are out there, I still have my snowmen up....until I have to move them ~ they are staying up there till the bitter end!


Even though, I did not get my cards made, I still think of my wonderful customers and appreciate you. 
Wishing you ALL a Very Merry Holiday!

Hang in there Barb! It'll all be over before you know it. I understand the stress especially at this time of the year, but the most important thing is that you don't have any majore damage to your things and you are all okay!
Thinking of you :)

Oh, Barb! I just read your email and popped over here. I am so sorry. What a horrible time for this to happen! Arghh! If I lived closer, I would help you move your stamping supplies and you could come stamp with me!

Oh, Barb, my sweet friend, I am SO sorry to hear this has happened to you! I, too, have had some several ordeals this year but I've trusted in God and He's helped me get through it all -- with blessings, so I have no complaints. I hope things will go as well for you too; just believe you're not alone in any of this, and you have friends here you can lean on too!

I've been mia myself so much lately but I've missed and longed to get back as soon as I could -- I look forward to spending a great 2012 with my family friends in the community which in itself is a blessing!!!

I'm so glad I got the time to drop by because I wanted to wish you a very merry holiday, but now I know I'm in time to send up some very much needed "knee-mails" for you!

Hugs, my friend!
