I am with you all feeling younger inside than I look outside. My late husband did not like makeup, so I hardly ever wear any. I used a little when I was working, but not since retiring. My hair has always been both thin and fine, and completely straight. Back in the day, I slept with rollers in my hair every night. My white hair comes from my dad's family and started turning in my early thirties. It is a true white, no gray or yellow. I avoid mirrors as much as possible.
I am getting frustrated with my new kitchen. What's done is great, but it's not finished, so we can't move back in. The contractor, who I like, asked if he could not have anyone do anything Fri. We agreed (he really was not asking- he was telling). Sat, he came and put most of the new cabinet doors. No work again n Sun, then Mon,the granite came. Yesterday, the backsplash was put up and then grouted this morning. We are still till missing several cabinet drawers, and we have no hardware at all, and the microwave is still in the middle of the dining room floor, and we haven't had a home cooked meal in 2 weeks. I asked him what time he would be here today, and he responded askng if he could come tomorrow instead. I don't think I would be as frustrated if I wasn't leaving next Thurs for Georgia. I will be traveling with my daughter and her three kids, so my packing is different. I need to find things to keep the kids busy at the airport and on the plane.
Then I stayed up till 2am Mon night. My son drove down from South Carolina and I wanted to see his face when he saw the kitchen and garage. Especially the garage. All I can say is it was worth it. He was so tired, it took a minute for him to react. But I got the "OMG- this is fantastic" reaction I wanted. I told him I didn't want him stressing about cleaning the garage all summer- now he can focus on the shed. He said, "Oh, no- did you just shove everything from the garage into the shed?" I was very happy to be able to tell him no, we only put the generator back in there from when we took it out because of a possible hurricane. But staying up till 2 and getting up again 6 hrs later has really kicked my butt. Yesterday I was pretty much a zombie, and today I am extremely tired. I've always needed 8-9 hrs of sleep a night.
If the kitchen is ever finished, I will post a picture.
