This is how my girls spent a portion of every morning last week while my uncle, his helper, Steady Eddie, my dad, and my brother-in-law have worked on closing in our garage to make it our laundry room, school room, and closet. 

Frankly, I’ve gone from pure anticipation to having to remind myself exactly why we’re undertaking this project, but I know it will be worth it in the end.  I’m such a routine person that I get (more than) a little antsy when mine gets upset.  Right now I have a backlog of laundry because I have neither a dryer nor a clothesline.  Yesterday we had no water for a while, so we had to hie ourselves to my mother-in-law’s house for bathing. 

However, this one thing makes it all worthwhile:

That’s my utility sink in my soon-to-be-sheetrocked laundry room.  I’ve always wanted one of these! 

To date, we have a framed up laundry room, plumbing for the washer and utility sink, a new home for our hot water heater, and, after Steady Eddie has spent the last hour this Sunday night under our house working on wiring, power in the laundry room (I hope!).  It doesn’t look like much, but we’re getting there!

Although I am pretty excited about the laundry room, I know once we begin on the school room I’ll grow even more anxious to have it completely finished! 

Lord, please give me the patience to endure enjoy my blessings!  😉
