Better tomorrow.

Furniture!  We have furniture here in the Harlow House!
Most of what we ordered came--(still waiting on a few more pieces).
Hallelujah! I honestly thought that it wouldn't ever show up.
It's so fun to set-up, decorate, arrange 
and then rearrange- just like I used to do.
I'm making my home, and I love it.
 I'm trying to make it comfortable for my children.
I want them to want to be at home and want to be close to me.
Except some days- like today for example,
I wanted to strangle them.
It was like 500 degrees with 99% humility and I get it- 
it's hot, and no one wants to go outside.
But I can only take so many Star Wars Attack of the Clones cartoon episodes.
Kinda seemed ironic today as I was trying to set up the house
  for the children and all I wanted them to do was to disappear for a few hours.
(which they did-to the pool with Mr. Nielson).

But I'm so grateful when the hot sun goes down, dinner is cleaned up,
and I lay my head on my pillow clearing my mind
 and hoping I can do it better tomorrow.

 We've almost finished our new house plans!
I can't wait.
I picked out our new furniture with my dream home in mind.
It will look dashing within its walls.
Why just yesterday Mr. Nielson and I had a lunch date 
to discuss plans, and how much more money we need to save up to build it.
I really hope sooner than later.
