Of my new dining room chandelier, living room ceiling fan, kitchen track lighting, and foyer pendant!!! YAY! Those young men did a great job - even though they didn't get started until late in the day... it was a good distraction from the Broncos game.
So I am off this morning to the 6:30 meeting. There I will meet my friend B., and he will come back and blow out my sprinkler system. YAY! I have today off because it is Columbus Day. Don't ask my why that is a paid holiday, it makes no sense to me, but somehow I do not complain about meaningless "holidays".
Today my son is moving out of my house and into his own apartment. I will miss him terribly. I have enjoyed having him here. But somehow I don't think it is good for a 31 year old man to live at his mother's house for more than a teeny little bit of time. I am really glad that his apartment is right down the road... he used to live on the other side of town. I am so grateful that this wonderful young man is back from Iraq. What a long year that was.
