I have been thinking about doing a simple remodel for our kitchen. I am not willing to spend a ton of money at this stage of life for the mere fact that I don't want to worry about things getting ruined. Friends have installed ikea cabinets, I looked at them last time I was at ikea and liked how they looked. They seemed perfect for what I was looking at. Granite is simple enough which could be done in a day or two and lastly new appliances.
Well, I was going to start the project, then I realize I just want to do it. I would rather have my kitchen in one piece. I would rather have that time to spend on the kids. I would rather not drag Danny through something that I am certain he doesn't want to be a part of.
So i realized I was perfectly content and it was such a nice feeling. I am even content with my family room that is simply good enough. It isn't decorated exactly how I want but Kira is starting to turn our home into a mattress jumping trampoline zone so realize that is a great room to do that. It serves our families need and function.
This brings a sense of peace that I get to spend time doing the things that I want to do and love. Spend times helping and enriching my kids lives, spending time with Danny and have some spare time in my day to work which I love.
I will never have the most fashionable home and that is totally ok. I have decorated my home to make it functional and good enough that if feels like home and makes me happy and that is a great thing and realization at this stage of my life!
