Muse #412 - reality beckons
After nearly seven weeks the renovation project ended today. And there were no unicorns and rainbows at the end of it. The quiet reality dawned again. No post-completion intros like in the TV shows where the host walks the couple through the house. In pristine condition. With “Ooh’s and Aah’s” all around. And some happy tears with the cherry on top.
It was just a back to the reality of living the life that we lived before. The list of tasks to clean up the house. The never-ending list to put back the stuff in their place. Items to hang and redecorate. Wall art to hang back. Mirrors to install. Furniture to place back. Endless clutter that is now collected in various boxes to go back to wherever the clutter quietly lived before. Similar to the same old life that was lived. The same people. The same house. So what else could it be? Other than this.
Reality sank in and said “Welcome!”
