Pearls and Dreams
So far, only 4 pictures from yesterday's build. However, Take note, they ARE from yesterday, and this is not Tuesday ... my nephew got them out to me yesterday. Goooood Nephew!!!!
They have the roof on them from the roofers last Monday.
Also, notice how pristine white the porch cement was last Saturday in spite of the 61 people trapsing in and out ... and look at the mess from yesterday ...oh my oh my.
I spent yesterday trying to keep some degree of cleaning going. Pk's lupus did not appreciate it. My hands are swollen, muscles sore. You can actually SEE my sternum swollen with the costochondritis!! I have mouth sores (being in the sun too long?) and the Myasthenia is in a nice little flare (over use of muscles in trying to scrape off mud? who knows)
I gotta get past the looks ... there was one lady that was just a power house. She was older, little, long gray hair ... and could do anything. But everytime I sat down she'd give me this sour look that said "this is YOUR HOUSE! WHY are you sitting down?" More than once, she shot me a dirty look for not working as hard as she was working. It was really hard because I couldn't lean against a wall, or sit down without having her give me this look of disappointment or look of distain that said "Look at me, at my age ... and you, young and it's your house, what a shame!"
I'm used to those looks ... I get them frequently. I hate them. Don doesn't get it. He says he's never seen one and doesn't understand what I'm talking about. Well Don, no, you wouldn't. You, who would have been over 6 foot, but because of polio/scoliosis is 5'3 on one foot and 5'0'' on the the other, weighs 98 lbs ...is VISIBLY disabled ... you who people watch and wonder HOW you're even able to walk ... no one looks at you that way. It's the people with invisible disabilities that get those looks.
I worked so hard I got home at 4:30, was in bed by 5. Got up for dinner at 8, was back in bed by 9. I woke up this afternoon at 3 pm. I can tell you, I won't be up late tonight.
My pastor preached today on Balance. I missed it. Ironic.
Here's yesterday's pictures. Hopefully there will be more.
