Down for the count

Copyright © Cheryl Coville 2011

We've had a rough couple of weeks. We feel like we've gone a few rounds with Mike Tyson. The list of injustices includes: Night time drives through freezing rain advisories, black ice and lightning. Hurricane winds. Power outages. (And that means no water which means....NO HOT TEA!!)  No telephone service. And all that without our Mr. Coco, who had to fly away and really did feel bad about us going through all this alone.  Then, the workers who are coming to install new floors decided to show up on Friday instead of the following Monday without calling first! And all the stuff we had planned to move carefully out of the way over the weekend had to be moved hastily. Now, nothing is findable. The whole house is in chaos. And don't get us started on the dust factor!!  Turns out you get a bit of dust when you pull up 35-year-old carpet. Who knew? What's a girl to do? Sometimes, art therapy helps. Truly.


  1. Ooooh poor you! I'm so sorry to hear all that. You have my sympathy. Well... you survived right!? Just think how fabulous you'll feel when everything is back in order, clean, on, and you can sit with that wonderful cup of tea. You'll be so grateful.

  2. Sorry you have had such a tough time. At least you can draw your feelings out!!! Again the cat is my favorite. So typical in a situation like this.
    Hope things are better soon. I will be saying a prayer for you.

  3. My sympathies! I had issues like that last year and know it can disrupt everything when your house is thrown out of order. I especially like the kitty too.
