Moving Back In
“Yay! It’s finally done, time to move back into my gorgeous apartment with my newly finished, beautiful hardwood floors! Three cheers! Hip, hip, hoo… Oh wait, what’s that over there? Isn’t that the stain that was there before? And that area where the veneer was peeled off by the tradesman’s paint thinner? Yeah, right there, it’s not fixed it either–it actually kinda looks worse. But the paint splatters, surely they’re gone, oh, oh, ooooh, ugh. Um, why did I move again?”
That folks, was my inner monologue at 8am this past Saturday as the moving company started to schlep my entire apartment back in to normalcy. Defeat. Frustration. Anger. Then came exhaustion as I spent the entire day with Mr. Sparkles trying to unpack boxes and shove stuff into closet spaces, including the fabric! After meeting with the developer they are all sorts of dumbfounded about what to do (show me the money!), and we are still seeking resolution. I seriously don’t think my eyes could roll around my head anymore than they have in the past week!
Fortunately, this has given me the opportunity to reorganise my amazing fabric collection. Who knew I had such gems!? Not bragging, just forgetful! Last night I started breaking up my fat quarter bundles (including the Friedlander!) and putting everything into piles of colour. Greens, teals, and blues are common, purple not so much. Isn’t that always the way! At any rate, it is keeping my mind off the frustrating things, and allowing me to find joy in the wonderful fabric I already have. Mr. Sparkles did remark though, “No more fabric!” Ahem.
