I’m not quite sure why I’ve been gone for so long. Maybe a slight identity crisis or general questioning of this whole blogging thing. But it seems as I approach the ripe age of 32 (t-minus 45 days…holy crap!), it seems like we’re making some progress here. The first bit-o-news is that we finally received our blessing from the city of Atlanta to begin our renovation – it’s only been a 9 month process! So last week, the deck came down and the rotted siding was happily stripped from the lean-to sunroom - good riddens!
We’re feeling all official now with our Waste Management dumpster parked in the driveway. This week the sunroom was supposed to tumble however we have a rain delay, so hopefully later this week or next. Big props to my father in law, Robbie Bailey for designing our new addition and being our general contractor (www.baileysconstruction.biz).
Our hopes are to have the renovation completed by the end of July. We’re kinda up against a hard and firm deadline…..
Meet “The Bean“. Coming soon: September 4, 2012
So it seems that Thirty Therapy, while still that soul-searching, joyful life seeking - blog will still remain true to its core, we may have a few detours in conversation (conversations I wasn’t even sure I would ever have). But God has a way of taking charge of our lives and leading us in the right direction. I still feel that who I am as an individual is not defined by my title as a mother (to-be), I fully recognize that it will be a huge part of who I become. Plus, I think this was God’s way of saying “get your ass in gear and get stuff done; quit talking about it and do it.” (not sure if God would actually say “ass” but it sounded like the appropriate noun to emphasize urgency).
So that’s it for now. Not much…a renovation, a baby…just a regular, uneventful life.
