Incomplete

They came over to our house today to install the TV unit, almost a month and a half after they were supposed to. It’s the TV unit I’ll probably tell stories about to my family, guests, and probably our children.

With that in place, all the big pieces in our living room are where they belong.

It’s surely starting to feel like home. Jut not fast enough.

After the installation guys left, I sat down on the couch and took a deep breath and looked around the room. It’s far from being complete, but I keep being told it’s unrealistic to have a complete house before we move in.

You’ve got to live in it first and see how the space fits you before you do anything, I keep hearing.

But I don’t know. To me, it’s not the furniture, the plates, the vases, the curtains, or the decorative items that will make it home.

It’s having my makeup scattered all over the dresser. And my clothes hanging in the closet that smells like my Burberry London. And my go-to shampoo in the shower. And my favorite chocolates in the fridge. And our favorite pictures hanging all around the apartment. And my beat-up vintage desk that I wouldn’t trade for the world finding its spot.

And knowing he won’t leave at the end of the night.

            Err, I told you guys at the footer of my last post that I apologize for my absenteeism 😦 I’ve been appointed as the Director Fund Raising at this new NGO we’re starting (“Educating Child Labors Organization”) and as a Graphic Designer at this media production company so I’ve been stuck in all of this work and studies and projects 😦 that’s why I’m gonna try to complete my Writing 101 assignments this weekend.. And seriously I’ve missed all of you so much 😥 I feel miserable!

              It’s fantastic that you’ve been keeping busy and I’m very happy for you for all the success that is coming your way. Dont worry you’re excused on being absent. And though I did read the note, I still felt your absence. Good luck with the writing, they’ll be great I’m sure!

                  I’m sure you are more than capable at doing this job and succeeding at it. It’ll take some time to adjust but once you’re there, inshalla you will achieve everything you sent out to do!
