Life Happens

No, I am not finished with my big clean-up project yet. Though I've definitely made some headway, I am too much the perfectionist to just shove things in the cabinets. Every single item just really needs me to handle it, to think about it and to find a home for it. (Sometimes that home is the trash bag!)

My uncle passed away yesterday, and there is no way we would not drive back to my hometown to be with family to celebrate his life together. We are packing now to leave in the morning and won't be back here again until late Sunday. Though it will be wonderful to see some of my favorite relatives, I so wish my uncle could be part of the fun, cutting jokes left and right, as usual. I am certain, though, that we'll hear him in our hearts through the whole weekend.

The unfinished project will still be here when we get home, and it really doesn't seem as important anymore. Though I kinda wish I had waited to show you all those photos, so I could post the "after" pics within a day or so and you could just think I tackled it all in a whirlwind of efficiency. ;o)
