Our lives are a circus

Our house and home are truly like a big circus. There is always something going on and one never knows what one is going to find going on at any point in time.

A case in point is Saturday morning before Christmas. I got up around 7:30 AM, pretty much as usual, to find the handyman at my door ready to put in the new closet doors that were ‘curing’ in our lower level. I wasn’t even dressed and Ray had never come over this early so I had absolutely no reference point.

It is under 30 degrees, quite cold, and there is a threat of snow in the next day or so.

MK started baking cookies and I now need to go to Home Depot to purchase new doorknobs, as there isn’t a prayer we want any memory of the previous closet doors. They have scars and dents from the kids, in that they were hollow, and they didn’t even fit right. I will not miss them. I always thought of them as a scar on the looks of the bedrooms. I am guessing that I may have been alone in this, others might not have noticed, but that is not the point, I did!

I wasn’t planning on a Home Depot run, but hey, that is how the Koerner Circus is. One never knows what to expect.

My Home Depot run ended up with five doorknobs and I needed six, necessitating a visit to the Home Depot in Glenview. I got home and our nieces arrived shortly thereafter and we had a wonderful visit with them. Following that, Lucky, the new family dog came for his first visit to Stewart and the Deerfield abode. It is close to four and we are relaxing. All in a Koerner day!
