Today I took our 4 month old to Lowes to get some wood and paint for assembling kitchen shelves. He was absolutely mesmerized by everything around him! All the tools, all the wood, all the hardware…… will he be a contractor? A carpenter? Only the Lord knows, but it just makes me smile that he’s mine : )!
New projects to conquer are upon me! And I am excited for the mission. My wonderful husband (my Babe, as I call him), just left for pre-deployment training this past Tuesday : ( ! To see us saying goodbye, and crying lots, see my sister’s blog post here. Just eight months after we were first married 6 3/4 years ago, he deployed to Iraq for 15 months. I thought that was VERY hard. This time was hard too, but I found it to be even harder to watch my Babe say goodbye to our new, precious little one. This time, Daddy is headed to Afghanistan for 12 months. The last time he left, I painted the whole interior of our house in just 3 days. My strategy for coping is to pray without ceasing, and to dive into household projects. My household project list this time is long enough already to last the whole year. These projects we always mine…never on my Babe’s “honey-do” list. I definitely will miss his handyman skills around here for sure, as I hardly knew something was broken before he’d have it repaired. Plenty of things will break here in his absence I am sure, but my to do list is mainly cosmetic or decorating type things. You will see. Why, that’s why I have this blog : )!
Kitchen shelves….coming soon! You most certainly will be mesmerized too!
