Literally. Well, it''s a wood laminate, but it''s that snap together flooring. We''re redoing the office over the weekend and eventually, will redo our hallway, guest room, and the dining room. Looking good too. Taking a short chips, dip, and soft drink break right now.

I''m amazed at how easily it''s going. Almost like we can read each other''s minds. And how easily we''re working together. Two weeks ago, I had just come back home from leaving for three days after finding his porn stash (ironically, in the same room that we''re redoing). And today, peace, harmony, and chips & dip!

Life can be a funny old thing, can''t it? OK, break over, back to pergo-tory!

Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.

Glad things are going well. I was so hopeful for you when you posted about the shredder and this post made me smile.

Take up your space (and do it well).
