It’s never easy

Renovating a home is like a roller coaster. You get in the car and strap yourself in to go up this hill and get ready for a thrill.  There’s no reason to fear as all of the safety steps are there to protect you. Woosh – you are thrown for a curve, a loop or a big drop.  It’s fun at an amusement park – because you are expecting it.

And, while I’m not happy, I just have to believe that we are going to figure out a way to make it right. I’m ready to get off the ride now, please.  I hope it’s going to be OK.  If not, I’ll be right there with Jonathan.

We’re meeting with our contractor today to talk about the options of making this go away. I am wearing my rose colored glasses hoping all will be dealt with as it should.  I want to take off my seatbelt – for now at least.
