Oh, JK, so sorry. At least there is a light at the end of the tunnel, when your reno is done. I hope that peace and safety are there for you.

Thank you sandiocd. Our renovation has been very slow going--a whole home renovation down to the studs. It will still take some time, but the kitchen cabinets have arrived and with the holidays past, we are hoping it moves along quickly now. After getting some assistance today to address some issues, I feel more at peace. I made a nice dinner at home and now I'm shopping bath fans! I'm blessed with many good and supportive friends. House is always a help--it is a happy place with lots of friends just trying to make their houzes homz! :-)

A starter house, our first purchase, in 1987. 3 beds and 2 baths, only 1200 square feet. 3 children later and our stuff and selves has outgrown this "our first home". Our next step...a bit bigger in every way... home here was watching our 3 young ones grow, create, share in this space in the world! Memories made to last a lifetime! House number 3 is home to 2 "50 somethings", no children live here anymore, but we have critters and a peaceful home in a nature-filled lake neighborhood. This is what we named La Casa de la Paz.... and it truly is our "house of peace". Home ownership is an Amazing Blessing!
