My happiness is that I've just finished all but one of the 'icky' projects and may now go back to working on my baby. I can't really talk about it in this open forum....yet. But I'll reserve bragging rights for later :)
All in all, life has been okay. I'm still happy with my cleaning efforts. A friend came by the house and gave me the requisite, "Am I in the right place?" This was sufficient to make me happy. I'm also finally getting a chance to tear into old packed boxes from my first Calif move. I found all my old genealogy stuff and am hoping to get in touch with my local relative before she gets too old.
Things are still a mess with my natural family. At latest count my maternal side of the family is positive that my father died in August, my paternal side is positive that he is doing fine. Personally, I don't have the energy to even bother with it anymore.
So this was just a quick breather while I prepare to dive into my pet project for the rest of today. Wish me luck I'm on a tight time frame :)
