That probably explains why things take longer than we think. There are so many steps along the way that we don't even consider.Geeee, sounds like alot when u write it down. Wow.
Ugh! I know that feeling all too well.We are trying to wrap up with garden work for the season before the fist frost. Rain has been endless for 10 days or so.
Oh my gosh, this reminds me of something we went through about 15 years ago. We started the looking for contractors in April for an addition. The ones we wanted were booked until September. They started mid September. Then we had to deal with tropical storm rains. Every one shut down the week after Thanksgiving for hunting season. This included the carpet mill, electricians,paving guys and drywall guys. The drywall guys still had to finish dry walling so my dh and I finished it that week and started on painting. The driveway had to be paved but that was delayed because of snow. I finally came to terms that the addition would not be done in time for Christmas. We kept the decor simple. We had plastic taped to the door so the white dust wouldn't enter but it still found a way So my dreams of a white Christmas came true just not the way I thought.They were supposed to be able to get us in before another big job and we hoped would start this week. Well the permit for that job came in yesterday so we just lost them. *screams silently* It is SO hard to find drywall installers in the Fall.
I'm doing something similar. I won't be out of commission as long as you. However, my procedure on my leg is two weeks before Thanksgiving. I've made up and froze some Thanksgiving side dishes.. I've been going like mad to get a ton of prep done in case I'm down for awhile.
That's a positive attitude!I love Halloween and it kills me not to pull out my Halloween decor, so to try and ease that pain I just put out all my fall decorations and Turkeys. At least it will look festive and not dull!
I think you have a good plan for making lemonade out of lemons.My plan is to actually get that tree done this Sunday and out of the way. Crazy I know, but I figure it will be in the basement and no one will secretly know I have a tree already. Then come Thanksgiving weekend I'll only have 1 I'll need help with to set up. If my husband sets it up, I should be able to get the ornaments on it by then. I've thought all of this out seriously...because these three months are my favorite of all, but I'm in a position where I also just want to feel better and this surgery will help me get there. Sooooo the neck surgery wins!
