things I need

Today's a "day" (if you know what I mean).
Working a 13+ hour day is not good for my health on top of everything else going on right now. It's also one of those days where I'm desperate for a home of my own. I just really want a white kitchen where I can cook up those lime squares with pistachio crust that I've been meaning to make. Heaven help me - I need to make something!
I need a lovely living room where I can have friends over and relax with David.
I need a bathroom where I can lock the door and use the delicious bath salts Karren gave me for my birthday.
And most of all, I need a bedroom where on days like today - I can fall into bed, wrap the duvet around me and have a good cry.
Don't we all though?


  1. those are lovely pictures. i too sometimes long for my own place, but our apartment is a little more my own with the arrival of the little birdie i found thanks to you.

    here he is in his

    and on my nightstand
    (if only i had a cute radio instead of my ugly 80s style one)

    thanks again!!

    thinking good thoughts for your brother and sister-in-law, and for you!

  2. I get the same feeling, like if I don't spend some time making something I will explode.

    Or that I just need to spend the whole day in bed crying.

  3. Oh is hard right now. I can't believe you are working that long every day. Being at work for that long would bring out the worst in me! I guess it can help keep your mind busy though.

    Take and your family are in our prayers every day.

  4. Oh I feel you right now. My story? My husband is having food reconstruction surgery in a week. I need everyone to feel bad for us. But then again, our trials don't even compare to what you family is going through right now.

    I hope you get a chance to make those lime thingies. They are better than expected.

    And someday, when we are all rich, we can all have a beautiful white kitchen. I have to.

    BTW, how do you know your M? We went to middle school and high school together and we were actually quite good friends. I lost track of her over the years. Isn't she the greatest?

  5. I realize you posted this awhile back, but I just discovered your blog and am doing some backtrack-reading. This post so spoke to me today. Thanks for your candid transparency. Those lovely, welcoming images bring peace to my own frazzled mind today!
