It's been a weird week

This has been a long, weird week. Am i glad it's over? Well that's a loaded question.

Last Monday the process of getting new flooring started. See, the landlady is having tile floors installed. Phil & the boys were shifting furniture around the house each day. It's an enormous mess & stressful for me to be in such a chaotic environment. i have an online class i'm taking & with the mess at home i've had to find other places to do that. Luckily, we have a great coffee shop in town that has fast WiFi.

At work, there is more change. Two of my favorite co-workers are leaving. One is retiring. i am so happy for him, but dread losing him as a teammate. The other one was poached by one of my best clients. He's been with us since he graduated from University. He was a manager and we have no one internally who can take on that role. We'll manage of course, but he was a big part of our recent successes. So, Friday was emotional to say the least.

The tiling crew, two guys, finished late Saturday afternoon. We worked until 8 or 9 putting things away. For the first time since Monday night, everyone was in their own beds.

Today, i went thru a box of Swiffer dusters cleaning. There is dust everywhere! i have swept the floors and lightly mopped them to get grout residue off them.

We are grateful to have the landlady we do, & the floors look nice. But it took a toll on all of us.

Yesterday would have been my nephew's 21st birthday. i called my brother to tell him they were in my thoughts. it was a hard conversation. What do you say in those situations?

Lastly, today is the anniversary of my mom's passing. i have missed her. much more than i thought i would. i talked to my dad & my sister today. They both sounded rough. For the first time in a long time, i wanted to be with my sister.

So, yeah. A weird week.

As for being glad it's over, i think i am. 

 

 

thanks for reading

I recall your nephew's passing, and your mother's also. We cannot escape pain in this life but we can share and lean on those who love and care for us. you are a very special person in my life and, of course in tim's. 

Thank you for sharing both the good and bad with us.

Hugs, molly.

you're a great supporter for those you love, and many of us are born for that role. They're lucky to have you in their lives.

Take care of them, and take care of you too, lady.

So many changes in such a short amount of time certainly does make for a weird and stressful week. I'm glad you're through with it (and now have beautiful floors!).

I can relate to missing a parent. Some days it's easier, other days not so much. 

I'm sure your brother appreciates your thoughts. There is no right thing to say in those situations. Support goes a long way. 

I hope this week is going better for you!

(Also... Bissell Crosswave. The best thing ever to clean floors!)
