The Displaced Person

Remember reading this in high school? Okay, well, maybe not. But work with me here. I went to Catholic school and O'Connor was high up on the reading list. Lately, I've been facing my own displacement issues. For the past 2 weeks my family and I have been living in a state of constant interruption while the floors in the house have been torn out and replaced (How Mel did this for months and months I'm not quite sure)

Not that I'm complaining. I hardly even recognize my own house. It's like it's had plastic surgery. The floor magician, Dave (aka Hollywood) and his little dog Sherwood have become regular fixtures at casa Geraci. I'm almost going to be sad to see them go. Almost being the operative word here. I don't mind admitting that I'm counting the days when I can go back to hanging around in my pj's eating bon bons and writing all day long. Ha! (in my dreams!)

Speaking of writing... I decided to give The Church of Bunco a short hiatus while I polish up the opening to my follow up historical to The War Bride. It's tentatively called In Love and War. I've pretty much gotten the first 3 chapters down, but I now need a synopsis. Sigh... I'll let you know how that goes.

Love the title! Taking your cues from Hemingway? Can't wait to see the new casa Geraci!

I can't wait to have casa Geraci finished!

Good luck with the new flooring! Hopefully, it will be so fabulous that the displacement will be worthwhile.

I'm finally back home after being displaced as well. It feels SO good. :)

my favorite part of home improvement is the white snotty sneezes from all of the drywall dust.

i bet ole mike is a treat during this experiment.

LOL! No drywall for us, so we've spared the white snotty sneezes!
