As some of you know, I’ve been battling Epstein-Barr for the past 2 months. The only “treatment” is water and rest. I’m not one to lay around, so on top of having no energy I’ve had to put up with laying around the house. The most trying part is staying out of my “shop”. I spent the summer and part of the fall transforming the gargage. I still haven’t done anything about the lighting due to being down and not having the money to hire someone. But I had it where I could do a few things when the weather was good and the gargage door up. I planned on hiring an electrician after Christmas, but this illness has put it off until at least spring. The last time I was out there was to get the Christmas stuff down from the attic. My beautiful and loving partner re-arranged the house a little and I remember thinking, “Wow. She really opened up the space. Wonder how she did it?” I found out when I went into my “shop” 2 weeks ago to start on her desk project!!! My family is the most important part of my life…I can’t imagine life without her or the kids. But gosh darn it, just because I’m not using the “shop” doesn’t mean to turn it into a storage shed!!! (ha ha ha). So, if you ever become ill (and it’s my prayer that ALL of you are healthy and safe), remind your loving families of the purpose of the “shop”, especially if you’re like me and have to make do with what you have. Actually, I had a good laugh over it and told myself that at least I have an opportunity to “redesign” it again.
