This, that, and the other..

We My uncle and cousin are remodeling our livng room today. The noise of concrete being sawed and rhythmic banging is driving me literally up the wall. I don't know if it is part of my OCD or if it is just something that drives me up the wall.. but, I can't stand rhythmic noises or thumps. Like, someone shaking their legs or tapping a pencil. The rhythm of it constantly gets on my nerves. Because, it's the same noise.. over and over with the same beat. I know, I know.. I'm weird. It's okay, really.. you can say it. I get it all the time.

It's just so dang loud in this house! I can't hear anything, at all. Mom is watching TV but, I don't understan how! Hahaha.. it will be over soon at five. I don't think I can make it that long.. the noise is really starting to make me mad. No joke.

I could be spending the day with my best friend.. but my mom somebody won't let me leave the house. I don't know if it's because if she has to suffer the earshattering noises, so do I? She said that my uncle may need something and I can run to Lowes and get it..
Speaking of Lowes! My brother, Chad, sent me yesterday & they had nothing he needed. I felt like an epic failure haha.. Plus, they had nobody working who knew anything in there about any thing that I needed. I was irrate, because I felt like I had let Chad down. Hahaha.. Seriously, so I learned that I'm not the girl for Lowe's runs! Send someone who knows what they are looking for. Because, that place is too big !! I could have done it if the workers knew what they were doing. I'm not saying that all Lowe's workers suck at life and need to find a new career (for any of you that work there) however, they should have a test that these people go through. Seriously. I'm sure there are awesome people that work there and know what they are doing.. I just didn't get a hold of those people yesterday. At all !!

Today, Chris had to go to the doctor to get a CT scan because he has a syst in his throat. His doctor told him that he wasn't going to rule out cancer so they did the CT san to figure it out. I ask that you guys pray for him, please. The word cancer is enough to scare someone. That's a serious thing. I always try to find verses that match situations and I wanted to find something that would help him out. & I found Psalm 91. The whole Psalm is amazing.. However, I favored one particular verse, that goes a little something like this...

"I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust."
--Psalm 91:2

Sometimes we ask why, and question. I know that I do it all the time.. sometimes it's just faith that we need. That's the only explanation. I know, in the past, I have had problems with faith. We just have to remember that God is our refuge and our fortress and we must put all our trust in Him:).
Have a beautiful day!

I hate making trips to Home Depot and Lowes. I'd sneak out of the house if I were you. JUST KIDDING. I don't want to be a bad influence on you!

Having worked in construction for 2 years, I can't stand the loudness either.

Well you can come to the land of electrical wiring at my house. All of the old wires lying in the floor is giving me hives. Soon and very soon.
