It always makes me feel good to help people. This family has had a really rough time.

5 kids, a trailer big enough for them all but they are running out of time to move it. This is a real story of an honest family, I have been taken before so I do check on things now and make sure they are true. Does that make me a bad person??

Disappointed in humanity


I am one of the “high risk” people out there and I am so disappointed in the amount of people still out doing whatever they want. I have not left my property in weeks now and it is mostly because of inconsiderate people. The traffic on my road has not slowed, the schools are the only change it seems around us. My husband is an essential so is still working and thankfully does not come in contact with many people. We have hand sanitizer that he uses before he even comes in the house and the packages and mail all stay out on the porch for 3 days before I open anything. He will throw away whatever is junk instead of even bringing it in and takes some things out of the amazon boxes.

I have never been afraid to die but I also have never had all I ever dreamed for before. I think the thing bothering me the most, I was depressed!!!! What?!?!? I am only slightly doing things differently, I never left my house anyway!!!! Maybe once or twice in a good week and it was either just to drive or it was with my husband shopping. Soooooo, I don’t get it but, even though my life did not change a lot it effected me a lot. Oh how the emotions and brain works!!!

High Risk


People are just being crazy , buying out toilet paper? I mean, really??? Yup, that is what the virus is like here in Maine. I live in a country area out side a small city, about an hour drive to a major city. As of this being written we had 52 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus in the state. I never went out much so staying home is easy for me but my husband works for the railroad, so he has to work to make sure things people need get to where they are needed.

I am a high Risk with my autoimmune so every time he leaves the house we worry about when he gets home. The railroad is not going to inform the rest of the guys if one of them gets sick even though a lot of the guys have high risk wives, the Union is working on that but I don’t see it happening. The majority of guys are carrying Lysol wipes with them to wipe down the controls before their shifts. We have wipes in every room so he comes in the back door using a Lysol wipe to open and close the doors and goes directly into the bathroom which is right next to the black door, takes off his clothes and puts them in a bag and takes a shower. Then puts the clothes in the laundry.

I feel guilty that my family is suffering more from this because of me, my son can’t go to his girlfriends house, she has lots of siblings and is still going to the gym as I write this. I know he is mad and says she knows what she is doing but, it would only take that one missed spot or something.

I don’t know if it’s enough or if it’s too much? I know I am scared, I know the thought of leaving my husband and my sons all with out me worries and scares me. I have known for over 20 years that this one little pill is what kept me alive. I know at one point I though God was cruel giving me something that I could not just sleep for days with, that I had to get up and face the world long enough to eat and take my pills, which means I’m awake now. This is on a whole new level now though, I could die if I leave my house and come across someone sick or something else that has germs from the sick on it. I try to keep updated with real information and just hope it blows over very soon!

Kitchen


Bottom cabinets are done! Finally.
Took me awhile to decide on paint color and technique
Love the difference in the just painted to final finished door!
Going to go with the shades of grey for the top cabinets.

Couldn’t decide on handles and pulls for the longest time but have chosen a leaf design, it doesn’t come in the oiled bronze but my husband knows a place that can change them for us.

Can’t wait to have it all finished, although I am very nervous about my blue being more, in your face then I wanted it to be. I am hoping with the house renovations opening up the kitchen more and adding the double glass doors, all the natural sunshine will dull that effect and it will turn out ok. Designing and decorating my own house is not very hard but nerve racking at the same time, you never know how your designs will actually turn out! It doesn’t have one style, it’s not just rustic farmhouse or country farmhouse, I guess you could say it is a country cottage rustic farmhouse? Lol I guess with all the renovations it’s not going to be a 1940 built house anymore but we are keeping the hardwood floors and nice wood wainscoting in the dining room. I guess that is the only room that will still be from the original house!, course they put 3 additions on themselves so really, what even was the original house!???
