Curves for WordPress and some random five

The word is curves and I’m sat here in the office processing photos not daring to go downstairs into the mayhem which is my house this morning. I’m getting lost in my photographs because today is the first day of the hardwood floor replacement. Boy Nancy, do I ever have random thoughts today, but I’ll try to keep it to the five I should. 🙂

Thought 1: Why is it so hard for me to focus in the office while a team of extremely competent women is packing up the house? Well, probably because I’m a control freak! It’s true I tell you. I can’t not be part of the business even if I don’t want to be, no one is paying me for it, these really lovely ladies are professional, they will not break the china and crystal and, if they do, they are completely insured for replacement. Get a grip V! Focus and get some work done!

Thought 2: I hate displacement. I know that in the long run having the floors replaced to new/old fir floors will increase the price of the house, it’ll have to be done at some future time anyway, I’ve been paying house insurance for years and years and since I have a entitlement after the bad plumber debacle, it is very logical to get it done. But I hate being displaced out of my home, out of my bedroom!!!!! Doesn’t make sense, does it? I’m being a princess baby from hell, aren’t I? Suck it up V!

Thought 3: I wish I was at the cabin and this was all over with by the time I came back.

Thought 4: I will survive…hey, hey. Honestly, I think I’m so attached to my house and all my things being around me because, right or wrong, (probably wrong), I feel like my life has been one of repetitive major loss of stuff. I mean, lost everything immigrating to Canada as political refugees, lost homes and so much twice thru two divorces, (except kept the children, which was the only thing I wanted anyway). And I do tell myself it’s just stuff. It’s just stuff!!! Stuff V!

Thought 5: It’s raining…again…wish I was in Mexico sitting on the beach counting pelicans. Yes, that would be so nice. 🙂

    Hi Veronica–I can completely relate to hating displacement–even during the front yard renovation of ’09–they weren’t even in my house, but it still bugged the heck out of me. Basically, if you’re not a friend or family, my tolerance for anyone in my stuff or my house is Very Limited. Quit berating yourself for totally understandable sentiments–and like Dory in “Finding Nemo,” repeat “just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming-swimming..” 🙂 Love your curve photos–especially that black and white–Gorgeous!!

    Hi Veronica, Your curve photos (esp 3) make me smile. I guess you’ve been thrown a curve with your displacement, too! I hope you settle comfortably into your new living quarters – it is as you say “just stuff.”

    My favorite photo is the first black and white one.

    You are a political refugee? Wow…can’t imagine how harrowing that was.

    Having people working in your house is a huge disruption, but I have faith you’ll get through it and love your floors, too! Best of luck to you over the next few days!

    Lots of great information about you here Veronica. I can totally understand disruption not being your favorite thing right now — but change is good right?

    Hope all goes smoothly for you. xo
